A check has status "Whole content filtered (verify your filter settings)"

Top  Previous  Next

If a check has the status message "Warning: whole content filtered (please verify your filter settings)", then there might be something wrong with your filter definitions and WebSite-Watcher isn't able to detect updates.


Normally WebSite-Watcher compares the filtered text content of the new version with the filtered text content of the old version of a page. If the whole content is filtered, then WebSite-Watcher has nothing to compare and is not able to detect updates. In such a case this error message is displayed.


Open the bookmark properties and verify/change your filter definitions to fix that behavior. With the function "Test filter" you can see the filtered content that is used to detect updates.
