      • Enable the capability to easily copy the results

        Previously if I had to give evidence of certain tags being in place I could copy+paste from the WASP panel. I don't seem to be able to do that anymore.

        • write a manual or user guide

          What's the difference between "Original Query" and "URL" in the output CSV? Does the site crawl work in the free version? Why do I get different results every time I crawl my site? These and many other questions could be answered if there was a user guide!

            Original Query = the URL WASP checked, but sometimes there are redirects, so URL will show the actual destination link. The site crawl isn’t available in the free version. You might get different results depending on how fast specific pages are loading – or there might be issues either on the server or with the crawler…

            The reason there is no user guide is simply because the goal was to “listen” to the users and build a knowledge base instead. This never actually happened but now that I’m in control this is the plan :)

            Help files are great for those of use that RTFM - when struggling, but yours are a bit of a joke - with ole Lorem ipsum in most of them... Help actually is supposed to help not frustrate!

                  • Recognize ClearSaleing

                    Identify tracking from ClearSaleing (www.clearsaleing.com). They are used on some very major retailer web sites and would be a good addition to your tool.

                            • Put Flash support back into the product.

                              Flash detection hasn't worked since version 1.22 and most of the web sites I track are in Flash so I haven't been able to upgrade to newer versions of W.A.S.P. What gives?

                                • Load set of labels for Omniture Site Catalyst Variables.

                                  Often variables can be very cryptic. It is also common that different eVars, props and events have different meanings on different implementations. This will make it easier to asses multiple website tracking implementations.

                                  The idea will be to associate a set of more meaningful names to the variables and save this configuration and load it when needed.

                                    • Configuration to exclude common filetypes (pdf, xls, doc, xml, xsd, csv, ics,...)

                                      It should be possible to define a global list with all filetypes to exclude instead of always defining them using the exclude filter.

                                        • Request delay of 0.5 seconds

                                          I like the possibility of having a request delay between fetching two pages during a crawl. Would it be possible to also provide an option of 0.5 seconds? Server load would be descreased and it would be faster than 1 second.

                                            The request delay is rarely used for now because crawling with a single thread is never enough to create load on the server… However, this is likely to change in a future release as the crawler is improved and crawling efficiency might create additional stress on the server. I have changed the crawler delay and timeout parameters to be in milliseconds instead of seconds (so you would simply enter a delay of 500)
