Title: Web Page Monitor
Post by gary8744 on Feb 22nd, 2007 at 7:12pm
Would it be possible to get a plugin that would monitor a web page every XX minutes and look for specific text.  If the text was found, it could then email me the page or XX Char before and XX Char after the certain text?  I know there are other programs that do this, but since WD is so powerful and is doing so many other things for me, I would really like to keep everything in one place.

Hello Gary,


WatchDirectory's functionality can be "split" into 2 parts:
1. the monitoring part - that looks for changes
2. the "action" part - that handles the changes (the plugins, ie: Auto Copy/Auto FTP/Auto Compress etcetera)

While it is quite easy to add functionality for "2" (another plugin), it is not possible to add plugins for the "monitoring part", that requires a new program.

So, sorry, this is not possible for watchDirectory.

Gert
