Add Web pages


Building a list of pages for WEFT to analyze

The next stage involves building a list of Web pages that WEFT will analyze for font usage.

Enter the full http, ftp, gopher or file address of your start page, or use the browse button '...' to locate it.

If you'd prefer to navigate to your start page, first select the desired protocol and then click '...'. Depending on the protocol chosen you will be presented with the standard Windows file picker dialog or a mini Web page browser that you can use to locate your start page.

When you click 'Add' WEFT will follow links on the specified page and subsequent pages to build up a tree-like list of all the pages below the homepage. You can follow WEFT's progress by watching each identified page appear in the list.

The page list is also presented in WEFT's main window.

If you have hidden pages that are not linked to your homepage you can add these individually by entering their complete address, selecting 'Do not add linked pages' and then clicking 'Add'.

Once WEFT has built the page list, you are can prevent individual pages or complete branches from being analyzed for font usage by highlighting them and clicking the 'exclude' button.

Note: There is no way to un-exclude a page or branch from the list, so take care when using the exclude button.



Options on this screen

Protocol selection : Use this menu to select the protocol you'd like WEFT to use to retrieve Web pages for analysis. For Web pages on a local or network drive select 'file://' and for pages on a Web server select 'http://'. Other protocols are also listed.

Address of your Web page : Type the location of the start page. This will usually be the site's homepage, but may be a lower level page.

For a start page located on a local or network drive make sure 'file://' is selected as the protocol. Examples of valid locations are shown.

  • c:\typography\default.htm
  • d:\test.htm
  • \\myserver\test.htm
Note: An html page needs to be specified. Just specifying a folder such as 'c:\typography\' will not work.

For a start page located on a Web server ensure that 'http://' or another Web protocol is selected. Examples of valid locations are shown below.

  • www.microsoft.com/ - an Internet site
  • fontweb/typography/test.htm - an Intranet site

Browse '...' : Use this option to manually navigate to your start page. First select the desired protocol and then click '...'. Depending on the protocol chosen you will be presented with the standard Windows file picker dialog or a mini Web page browser that you can use to locate your start page.

Add : When you click 'Add' WEFT 2 will follow links on the specified start page and subsequent pages below it to build up a tree-like list of all the pages attached to it. You can follow WEFT's progress by watching each identified page appear in the added pages window.

Added pages window : As WEFT follows the links from your start page they will appear in this Window.

Do not add linked pages : Check this box if you do not want WEFT to follow links below your start page.

Back : Use this button to return to the 'Set user information' screen.

Next : Click here to move on to the 'Analyze Web pages' screen.

Cancel : Clicking this button will exit the WEFT wizard and return you to the main WEFT screen.
