Can you set a crawl rule to restrict crawling at a specific depth?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 14, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
Say we have a start address http://contoso.com/depth1/depth2/depth3/ and we only want to crawl from depth3 and beyond (depth4+ is fine). Is this possible to configure with a crawl rule?

Cannot crawl complex URL's without setting a site-wide rule to 'crawl as http content'. Help!

I have pages within a site that use a query string to provide dynamic data to the user (http://<site>/pages/example.aspx?id=1). I can get the content source to index these dynamic pages only if I create a rule which sets the root site (http://<site>/*) to 'include complex urls' and 'crawl sharepoint content as http content'. This is NOT acceptable as changing the crawling protocol from SharePoint's to HTTP will prevent any metadata from being collected on the indexed items. The managed metadata feature is a critical component to our SharePoint applications. To dispel any wondering of whether or not this is simply a configuration error on my part refer to http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepointsearch/thread/4ff26b26-84ab-4f5f-a14a-48ab7ec121d5 . The issue mentioned is my exact problem but the solution is unusable as I mentioned before. Keep in mind this is for an external publishing site and my search scope is being trimmed using content classes to only include documents/pages (STS_List_850 and STS_ListItem_DocumentLibrary). Creating a new web site content source and adding it to my scope presents 2 problems: duplicate content in scope and no content class defining it that I know of. What options do I have?

Restrict login access to website from specific machine


Not sure if this is the correct forum section but I need to restrict access to my website by physical PC.  When a user signs up I want to be able to restrict access to one machine for that account so it cannot be shared round, if, for example, somebody else in the same office wanted to access the system on their PC they would need a seperate sign in.

I have done some investigation and I "think" the only way is installing an ActiveX component (which isn't an issue that is restricts to IE only) and then read the users MAC address.  Am I trying to over complicate things or is that the only way?  I realise that MACS can be spoofed but this is not much of an issue.


Exclusion Crawl Rule Not Working (MOSS2007)


SharePoint experts,

I'm trying to exclude all the contents within one of the document libraries (called NoCrawlLibrary) from being crawled and showed up in a search result, but it doesn't seem to work correctly.


MOSS 2007 SP2 (Enterprise) on Server 2003 Enterprise SP2 (32-bit); and SQL Server 2005 Enterprise SP3.


I have set up two SSPs (say, SSP1 and SSP2); and a site collection and a search center for each.  The Default Content Access Account has access to both SSPs.  I have created a document library called "NoCrawlLibrary" in each site collection that I intend to have my search engine exclude from displaying items found within the library.

On SSP1, the Crawl Rules are as follow:

- https://ssp1.moss:1001/ssp/admin/* Exclude 1

- https://ssp1.moss:1001/NoCrawlLibrary/* Exclude 2

- https://ssp1.moss:1001/* Include domain\svc_crawler 3

On SSP2, the Crawl Rules are very

Crawl seems to be done, but content source says still crawling

I have a FULL crawl which took 8 hours to complete as the crawl log shows that it is not indexing content anymore, but the crawl status says "FUll Crawling" where it should say idle. Any ideas why this may be happening?

In-Depth look at the GridView Control

In the last article we looked at few of the new controls available in Asp.net 2.0. We also talked about Grid View Control which has replaced the Asp.net 1.1 DataGrid control for good. In this article we will examine more features of the Grid View control. In this article we will see some of the common operations that can be performed using the GridView control. Apart from these operations there are many more functions that can be performed on the control and which we will see in the later articles

I have a website that is written in .Net 2.0 which uses all the nice rich functionality of the web (Ajax, javascript etc..).  However I have noticed that the site does not display very well on mobile devices. 

So therefore I would like to create a more streamlined version of my site that is better tailored to these devices.  However how do detect that the user has come to the site via a mobile device and how can i redirect them to my tailored page

Many thanks in advance

C# In-Depth: Harness the Features of C# to Power Your Scientific Computing Projects


The C# language has been used quite successfully in many kinds of projects, including Web, database, GUI, and more. One of the last frontiers for the application of C# code may well be scientific computing. But can C# measure up to the likes of FORTRAN and C++ for scientific and mathematical projects?In this article, the author answers that question by looking at the .NET common language runtime to determine how the JIT compiler, Microsoft intermediate language, and the garbage collector affect performance. He also considers C# data types, including arrays and matrices, along with other language features that play an important role in scientific computing applications.

Inside Windows: An In-Depth Look into the Win32 Portable Executable File Format, Part 2


The Win32 Portable Executable File Format (PE) was designed to be a standard executable format for use on all versions of the operating systems on all supported processors. Since its introduction, the PE format has undergone incremental changes, and the introduction of 64-bit Windows has required a few more. Part 1 of this series presented an overview and covered RVAs, the data directory, and the headers. This month in Part 2 the various sections of the executable are explored. The discussion includes the exports section, export forwarding, binding, and delayloading. The debug directory, thread local storage, and the resources sections are also covered.

Inside Windows: An In-Depth Look into the Win32 Portable Executable File Format


A good understanding of the Portable Executable (PE) file format leads to a good understanding of the operating system. If you know what's in your DLLs and EXEs, you'll be a more knowledgeable programmer. This article, the first of a two-part series, looks at the changes to the PE format that have occurred over the last few years, along with an overview of the format itself. After this update, the author discusses how the PE format fits into applications written for .NET, PE file sections, RVAs, the DataDirectory, and the importing of functions. An appendix includes lists of the relevant image header structures and their descriptions.
