    Yes, that would be a good potential feature to add. We'll put it on our list of things to do.

        E-mail us the category file you are importing from and we can take a look. Did you double check already that the format is correct as specified in the Users Guide and Help file? What was the error message when it failed to reload your CATS.txt file?

        You said you were switching back and forth between V7 and V6. Note that V6 does not load configuration files saved by V7. You've sent us a V6 config file recently, but can you send us your V7 config file for this issue?

        UPDATE:
        I just went to your ticket and looked at the categories settings in your V6 config file. The syntax is wrong. Please refer to the Users Guide or Help page (click on the Help button in the Categories window).

        This is from our Users Guide:
        You can specify multiple patterns for each category, separated by a semi-colon character. For example, a category named “Downloads” may contain a variety of file formats with a pattern like “.pdf;.doc;.xls;.ppt;.exe” (without the quotes).

        This is what you have:

        Category name: images_lgbt
        Match pattern: ".JPG".PNG".TIFF".GIF"

        This is not correct. It should be as follows:

        Category name: images_lgbt
        Match pattern: .jpg;.png;.tiff;.gif

        Similar problems with the rest of your categories.

          Would it be possible to have rel=nofollow links optionally not be spidered? All my social media links are nofollowed but zoom creates entries for them.

          Also there's a slight sitemaps bug in V6, if you specify a different directory where it should be output the sitemap_index file still refers to the top directory.

          Thank you

            Are you indexing with "Index page and follow internal and external links"? Normally links to other sites (in your case, if they're links to twitter.com or facebook.com, etc.) should not be followed because they would not satisfy the Base URL setting.

            Regardless of this, you can enclose links that you do not want followed with the following tags:

            <!--ZOOMSTOPFOLLOW-->
            <a href="http://www.twitter.com/somefeed">Follow my twitter feed!</a>
            <!--ZOOMRESTARTFOLLOW-->

              Thanks Ray,
              Yes I'm following internal and external (to have a good search facility of the subject matter not just my site).
              I haven't seen zoomstopfollow before but use zoomstop - though not for these blocs. Unfortunately it's handcoded into 200 pages =(

                A user option to restrict search to "just this site" or "all sites" might be a nice add

                  This is already in V7. You can limit a search by domain name, e.g. the following query will search for all mention of "dogs" on mysite.com

                  dogs site:mysite.com

                    An update on the V7 release date: It should be this week!! (April 2014)

                    We have a couple of final bugs to fix and a bit more work on the web site. But otherwise it is done.

                      • radiodavid,
                        All the details and the upgrade link should be up tomorrow (barring anything unexpected in the next 24h).

                          I bought the upgrade from V 6 (Win) and downloaded it an hour ago, and it installed perfectly. I immediately began reindexing a section of my site that has about 330,000 pdf pages and on which I had changed the metafile data. In V 6, at best I got 50,000 pages an hour and about 30 minutes into the same data on V 7 I have done 55,000 pages... so it is a bit better than twice as fast.

                          The pathing screen is very nice in that there is more space to see and modify paths. On the other hand, the index progress Status window is not resizable, so if you want to watch both page count and elapsed index time, you have to scroll up and down. It would be nice to have the size of that window adjustable.
