      Just a note to say hello and ask for some help.

      I am scanning a site that clearly has a broken link but xenu is not
      reporting it. I'm trying to figure out if I need to set some
      particular option that is not obvious.

          Thank You -

          on http://www.cityofasburypark.com

          the page http://www.cityofasburypark.com/content/80/178/default.aspx

          has a link next to Waterfront Redevelopment Area

          that points to a non-existant place.

          xenu is not reporting that.

                  Last time I checked the (longer) URLs you gave me. But I see that you
                  have a different problem:
                  http://www.cityofasburypark.com/content/80/default.aspx
                  links to
                  http://www.cityasburypark.com/
                  The "of" is missing.

                  http://www.njtransit.com/sf_train_timetables.shtm
                  does not exist.

                    Different Problem ?? not sure what you mean. I scan
                    cityofasburypark.com and it only reports those 2 errors when clearly
                    there are more errors then that.

                    Thats what I'm asking about, why does it not report the other errors??

                        ????? OK ?????????

                        Whats the point?

                        Clearly the first one does not exist and is duly reported.
                        What are you saying in the second case ? Too many links for xenu ?

                        I am asking why the broken links on the other pages are not reported.

                          What I have been saying is that

                          1) One of the URLs http://www.cityasburypark.com does indeed not exist.
                          2) The other URL http://www.cityofasburypark.com does exist and shows
                          109 links. (You said it would show only one).
                          3) Other URLs you said that didn't work do work.

                          What I suggest is this:
                          0) Get the latest version.
                          1) Correct the broken link, i.e. the one that links to
                          cityasburypark.com (without the "of").
                          2) Scan the site again from the beginning. Save your work in a .XEN file.

                            I think we are misunderstanding each other.

                            My issue that I scan the site using:

                            http://cityofasburypark.com/

                            I ASSUME that the entire site will the spidered and reported on
                            is that not correct?

                            Clearly some PAGES on that site have problems,( I posted a few
                            previously) those are not reported by the scan.

                            Am I not understanding what xenu should do? I thought it should start
                            at the root and work through all the branches and report.

                            (BTW - I never said is showed only one link, kindly re-read my posts,
                            I've already pointed out some of the issues)

                            Thanks Werner

                            For anyone else reading this group.... Tilman has informed me that xenu does not parse Java Script embedded links. That is the cause on my difficulties.

                              If I may suggest something. your links in your events section are of the format text Having your links in this

                                If I may suggest something.  your links in your events section are of the format <a onclick="window.open(.....)" href="#">text></a>

                                Having your links in this format is not friendly to search engines/xenu which parse text, and don't interpret the JavaScript.  So for that reason alone you would want to generate links where you include the
                                href="http://some.link.here" so that the links can be spidered/parsed.  If you've been having problems with the pop-up window opening and the page from which the link was opened also going to that link, simply alter your onclick statement to:  onclick="window.open(.....);return false;"  <-- the return false makes all the difference stopping the browser from following the link, while only executing the code which opens a new window.  So now your pop-up windows work fine, and the site can be spidered.   Both of which are a benefit to you.

                                Apologies if you receive this in HTML and prefer text; I was trying to be clearer, and have sent in both formats
                                Stephen
