Release date: March 09, 2015, 2015

Build up with Sphider: v.1.3.5


In front of version 3.2015a the following modifications have been added:


New feature for index procedure:

- Instead of the HTML tags 'title' and 'description', use admin edited title and description.

  Will be overwritten, if one of the following new features is selected:

- Use admin edited title, if count of words in HTML title tag is less than: xxx

- Use admin edited description, if count of words in HTML description tag is less than: xxx


New option in admin backend:

Delete all sitemaps created during index procedures, which were performed in debug mode.

To be found in sub menu 'Clean'.


User and admin interface now are HTML 5 conform. With special thanks to Ulf Dunkel for his code input.


Updated scripts for ID3 extraction. Now parsing ID3v1(v1.0 & v1.1) as well as ID3v2(v2.2 & v2.3 & v2.4).


Bug fixed in 'Multithreaded indexing' in conjunction with sitemap.xml files.

Bug fixed in option:

Allow other hosts with same domain name for all links found during indexing. Also ignore TLD, SLD and www

Bug fixed in 'Ignoring parts of a page defined by <div id=> or <div class=>' in conjunction with nested div tags.

Bug fixed in 'Activate/disable database' menu for multiple databases containing the same table prefix.

Bug fixed in 'Import / Export URL list' for multiple categories per site.

Some small bugs fixed.
