      Hello,
       
      since checking links to Wikipedia seems to be a legitimate task for Xenu, shouldn't someone contact them and as for the removal of the robots.txt exclusion?. Or is there a reason that Xenu and Wikipedia don't work together smoothly, e.g because of the internal redirects in Wikipedia?
       
      By the way,
      User-agent: Xenu
      Disallow: /

      All the best

      I've raised a similar query before about many Google links that return a
      403, especially their RSS feeds. It doesn't seem you can do much about it,
      as these sites have a policy of forbidding software such as Xenu getting
      access.

      Presumably if a page is generating a 403, you know at least that you have a
      valid link.

        There would be no point - Wikipedia always returns "200 OK" never "404
        page not found".

          I would suggest it's all about load on their servers - at the end of the day
          they are still a charity, so they won't have the finest and fastest servers
          in the world. Also remember that pages are stored in Wiki markup - each
          page you ask for has to be converted to html for your browser to display.
          One wikipedia page is likely to lead to a huge tree of pages being
          requested - editors are always asked to make sure that a page links to
          plenty of other pages.
          They do allow Google to search, not sure if anyone else can do so.

            Just remembered - all the pages are all set for "no follow" - this is to
            stop unscrupulous companies adding spam links to build up their Google
            ranking. Any links added have no effect on the Google ranking.

              Although Xenu isn't a SEO tool, it is being "misused" as such. A guy
              asked to get the duration in milliseconds, and google has recently
              announced that loading time of websites would be taken into
              consideration.

              A new beta version is here:
              http://home.snafu.de/tilman/tmp/xenubeta.zip

              This is just a test so you see how it looks and give feedback. The
              milliseconds value isn't saved in the .XEN file, nor in the export file.
              (This will be done at a later time). If you need the milliseconds
              feature, please test it and give feedback about wether this is usable,
              or annoying.

              Below are all the changes since the last regular version. If you like to
              support me, please test it and give feedback.

              Tilman

              =====================

              Major improvements:
              24.2.2010: Check the domains of mail addresses (DNS lookup for MX
              record)

              Minor improvements:
              7.12.2009: Include PARSETEST4 section in general release (convert
              characters >80H to %XX, for "international" URLs)
              19.12.2009: For "international" characters in local files: Use Unicode
              for local directory search, URL launch in browser, read/check local
              files
              20.12.2009: But not for Windows 95/98/ME
              22.12.2009: add ".class" for applets if needed, replace "." with "/".
              example:
              http://www.colorado.edu/physics/2000/applets/bec.html
              27.12.2009: updated to NSIS 2.46
              10.1.2010: use version 6 list column sort arrows on XP and higher
              14.1.2010: added Description column
              15.1.2010: added warning when settings overwritten by profile
              16.1.2010: attempt at decoding .jar files for APPLET ARCHIVE thanks to
              http://www.codeguru.com/cpp/cpp/cpp_mfc/article.php/c4049/
              However:
              - only one .jar archive per applet
              - no unicode in file names
              - name of archive must end with .jar
              - .jar file must be internal, or the class link will
              remain broken
              - .class "in Jar" property isn't saved in .XEN file
              (which prevents standard access in favor of waiting for .jar lookup)
              24.1.2010: added <video src=
              27.1.2010: improved list control divider double click (title is the
              minimum)
              26.2.2010: improved extra text in domain mail check
              13.3.2010: Get page body only if not redirection or redirection but no
              "Location:" in header
              (should make PARSETEST3 fix superfluous)
              16.3.2010: ...
              30.3.2010: Abort box for ftp orphan search
              2.4.2010: [Options] Accept="*/*" (default value)
              14.4.2010: milliseconds in duration
              (in progress; missing: export, save/load)

              Bug fixes:
              15.12.2009: PARSETEST4 section: replaced "> 80X" with ">= 80X"
              20.12.2009: added version check for Unicode Clipboard and Sitemap for
              Windows 95/98/ME (like 27.1.2009)
              21.12.2009: corrected broken banner links
              22.12.2009: tell "anchor occurs multiple times" only once per URL
              4.1.2010: remove stuff after "?" in mailto: due to Microsoft error in
              AfxParseURLEx()
              10.1.2010: fixed list column sort arrows wrongly displayed in unsorted
              columns (on 7, but not on XP)
              12.1.2010: fixed "//" bug in applet codebase in local url
              15.1.2010: disabled and unchecked "Inactive" checkbox after loading new
              profile
              18.1.2010: fixed title line of tab export
              20.1.2010: Don't assume URLs to be UTF-8, use current charset instead
              However: this solution isn't perfect, because the correct
              charset of an URL would be the referring URL
              But in most cases it will work, because URLs usually
              have the same charset
              Known bug: Root URL with exotic characters
              20.1.2010: Corrected exotic URLs in sitemap
              26.1.2010: Fixed % in file: URLs, only convert %XX
              27.1.2010: "Conversion to lowercase" option uses codepage for conversion
              31.1.2010: Fixed bug in report (max size + max size url), probably
              introduced on 15.1.2010
              15.3.2010: vNormalizeURL() with conversion to UTF8 prior to
              AfxMyParseURL()
              store URLs in UTF8, unless already ANSI or ISO-8859-1 (1252)
              vRemovePercents for display only
              3.4.2010: prevent reentrant calls to vDoIdle();
              set fileNotFound status if tmp URL content file deleted by
              antivirus software
              10.4.2010: replaced "> 80X" with ">= 80X" in vAnsi2EntityEscaped()

              Hi Andy, ... That is not true. While this may hold for searches, trying to access specific pages will give error messages. E.g.

                Hi Andy,

                > There would be no point - Wikipedia always returns "200 OK"
                > never "404 page not found".

                That is not true.
                While this may hold for searches, trying to access specific pages will give error messages.
                E.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QWER
                gives "HTTP/1.0 404 Not Found"
                before starting a redirect.
                I assume that this would be the kind of link somebody might want to check using Xenu.

                  There are a couple of thousand users using Xenu if they all started
                  sending requests to wikipedia site then the server soon gets bogged down
                  trying to deliver the pages. Its the same as those people using website
                  copying software. I have had my photography gallery go very very slow at
                  times just because someone is trying to hoover up the pictures.

                  What would be nice is to find out from wikipedia what changes need to be
                  made to Xenu so make it nicer to their systems. E.g some sort of delay
                  when getting pages from wikipedia servers.

                    Xenu is already "nice", i.e. it makes a HEAD request, not a GET request.
                    My opinion is that the wikipedia software is crappy. The organisation is
                    mostly concentrated on collecting money, enforcing censorship, altering
                    history, and being busy with itself (many of the admins are just very
                    intelligent kids with too much time), instead of delivering a high
                    quality product by running a Continuous Improvement Process.

                      The software is probably rough - it *is* still a charity, and due to the
                      mindless antics of loads of juniville vandals, it needs a large team of
                      vandal fighters (not just admins - there's only 1000 regular ones) to keep
                      the pages more or less intact - English Wikipedia has around 150-200 pages
                      change per minute, and around 10% of those have to be reverted - so the
                      servers are already very busy, and I think allowing Xenu in will grind it to
                      a halt - If the Dutch mirrors go down, and I have to connect direct (from
                      UK) to the USA servers, then it can take 30 seconds plus for a medium page
                      to load.

                          On my local hard disk I have a folder containing hundreds of html files,
                          and an index.html file that contains links to all of them.

                          When I run xenu on the index file, it correctly reports no broken links,
                          but it also reports that all of the other files are orphans.

                          Why is this? What am I doing wrong?

                          -Thanks
