    Another page needs to be loaded before checking page

      I want to be able to check a website by looking for words on the page.  Of course this means that the page has to be loaded to be able to check for words on the page.  I have been able to create these types of minitors without a problem.  Trobule is now another page needs to be loaded before the page I want to check.

       

      Example,

       

      www.test.com/question1 needs to be loaded before www.test.com/question2 can be viewed.  Therefore meaning you can't go to www.test.com/question2 because you will recieve an error.  Is there a way that I can setup a monitor so I am able to monitor /question2?

          Hi Kevin,

           

          Before I can answer this question, can you tell me if www.test.com/question1 redirects to www.test.com/question2 ?

           

          ipMonitor can follow HTTP-based redirects and can authenticate using one of the following authentications methods:

           

          -NTLM

          -Basic

          -Digest

           

          Having that said, if /question1 eventually leads to /question2 using HTTP-based redirects and any of the above authentication methods, ipMonitor should be able to get to /question2 and verify for the presence of a specific string of text on that page.

           

          Let me know.

           

          Sincerely,
