Problem URL's containing the wysiwyg:// protocol
Some visits to your site may use the wysiwyg:// protocol in the referring URL.
These visits will appear in the database listings as:
A visitor from scfwpr03.sc.intel.com (22.214.171.124) arrived from wysiwyg://DYNA/http://www.xav.com/perl/ and visited www.xav.com/perl/lib/Pod/perlobj.html
Within the graph listings, AXS may get confused about whether to treat these wysiwyg:// URL's as local or remote URL's. You may get duplicate entries in your graph listings since some contain leading wysiywg:// protocols and others do not.
Work-Arounds in AXS
You can suppress these URL's by customizing the
%Maps hash in the ax.pl or ax.cgi file. The default hash looks like this:
my %Maps = ( 'http://xav.com/' => 'http://www.xav.com/', 'http://ftp.xav.com/' => 'http://www.xav.com/', );
Just add a new entry to strip the leading portion of this protocol:
my %Maps = ( 'http://xav.com/' => 'http://www.xav.com/', 'http://ftp.xav.com/' => 'http://www.xav.com/', '^wysiwyg://.*?/http://' => 'http://', );
Making the above change to the
%Maps hash will clean up all incoming data, but it will not clean up data that has already been logged.
The protocol does not seemed to be used in newer versions of Netscape, and does not seem to be used in other browsers.
2.8: Why do I sometimes see a URL beginning with wysiwyg?
