WebWhacker 3.2 for Windows 95/98/NT
Q:  Why do image map links not work correctly?
  There are two types of image maps, Server-side and Client-side. When you click on a Server-side image map, your cursor's coordinates are sent to the Web server. That Web server is running a program that interprets those coordinates and uses that information to determine what to send to your Web browser. You can whack and view a Server-side image, but it will not work correctly because the Web server program cannot run on your computer. A Web page containing a Client-side image map contains all of the information necessary to determine what to do when you click on a particular location within the image. That page will be whacked and viewed correctly, so you can use any Client-side image map. If an image map does not work correctly after whacking, it is probably a Server-side image map. The creator of that Web page can convert it to a Client-side image map.

Q:  Can you use WebWhacker to duplicate the directory structure of the Web site?
A:  The current version of WebWhacker does not duplicate the directory structure of the Web site. This feature may be available in a future version or product.

Q:  Why does my scheduler not work correctly?
A:  WebWhacker uses the standard Windows 95 dialer to automatically dial into the Internet and start whacking. If you are using an Internet Service Provider (ISP) that requires another dialer, WebWhacker may not work with that other dialer. In addition, your username and password must already be entered into your dialer. WebWhacker cannot manually enter your password to dial into the Internet.

Q:  Why can't I whack a search results page?
A:  When you start a search from your Web browser, the Web server runs a program that returns the result of your search to your Web browser. That results page is not a separate HTML page stored on the Web server; it was created "on the fly" by the Web server search engine, and it may not be able to be defined using a URL. WebWhacker can only grab and whack pages that can be defined as a URL. However, a workaround is to copy selected links from the search results page to WebWhacker. You can easily do so by right-clicking on the link and selecting Copy Shortcut (in Internet Explorer) or Copy Link Location (in Netscape). Then you can add the URL to WebWhacker by selecting URL / Add... and pasting the URL by pressing Ctrl-V on the URL Subscription Wizard (step 1 of 3) dialog.
