DeepTrawl v4 is here

v4

It’s been a little while since DeepTrawl has seen a major upgrade so this one is truly huge. Here’s an overview of the most important new features.
Html 5 validation
This is something we’re very proud to announce. Html 5 validation (along with xhtml & html 4.01) is now baked in. In fact it’s exactly the same html 5 validation you’ll get from the w3c’s own validator. We’ve the same validator code the w3c uses for html 5. Of course as with every DeepTrawl check, this works on your entire site with one click.
Css Validation
This is a brand new feature in v4. When a site is trawled all of the internal, external and inline styles are read, just like the html. Css validation shows you all the errors along side all the site’s other issues. But we’ve gone a lot further than just validation. Css is now a first class citizen – user added checks can now analyze css and it’s import, font & image links are checked.

(Much) better html exports

We’ve upgraded html exports hugely. They’re now beautifully rendered in html 5 & css. We’ve also added branding options – you can now add your own logo, colors and texts making html exports perfect for sharing with clients.

Dependency checks

DeepTrawl has always checked for broken links. In fact for a long time it was known mainly as a link checker. Starting in v4 we’ve added the dependency check, this does link checking for things like JavaScript, font & iframe imports. Ever seen a page with a broken css import? We bet you have and would wager the page was ugly as hell – now you never have to torture your visitors like this. More.

Better UI

The interface in DeepTrawl is now a lot sexier. We’ve gone for a cross platform look & feel that works really well on all modern platforms like Windows 7, 8 & OSX Mavericks. Besides looking better the interface now also works better. We’ve added features like Chrome style reorderable tabs and a new Monitor which pops out from the bottom of the screen, instead of being in a separate window.

Improved filters

DeepTrawl has has filter tabs for a while now – they allow you to see pages with specific errors in a new tab. We’ve enhanced with two new features:

1) It’s now possible to hide all other errors in the filter tab.

2) Filter tabs can now be used to filter by url. This allows you to show only errors in specific parts of your site or even zero in on a single page in the error results.

Check analytics code

Did you remember to put your analytics tracking code in *every* … *single* … *page* in your site? 100% sure? Now DeepTrawl can tell you which pages you’ve missed.

Try it

There are many more new features and enhancements (actually there are more than twice as many new features and enhancements compared to v4). We suggest you try it out.
