Yeah...

I cant get it work right... Sphider keeps indexding and displaying web-page menu texts and then searching inside that.

How can I make it index and display actuall articles/content?

Tnx

Well unfortunetely, Sphider does not check for re-ocurring text to exclude it from the index....

Thats your job to write something like that.... Sorry man

I dont get you... what re-ocuuring text?

I am talking about web-page menus, sphider indexes menu texts not actuall text...

Hello Giorgi,

and I don't get you.
What are web-page menus? Are they links?
What are menu texts? Are they titels?
What is actuall text...? Content?

Perhaps you could explain all that with an example or a link we could follow.

Hello Tec.

Web-page menus = I mean simple menus, they are links, let's say:

Home
About us
Page 1
Page 2
etc.
contact us

And Sphider indexes them... and in results displays like:

Page Title
home, about us, page 1, page 2, etc., contuct us
URL

I would like sphider to index and show actuall article excerpt, not menu links.

Hope that helps.

Thank you, I appreciate your help Tec very much.

You should read the Docs,

In particular [url=http://www.sphider.eu/docs.php#ign]Ignoring parts of a page[/url].

I have read docs and that is completly irrelevant to my needs.

I can't make website owners to add tags just for me.

Ah,
