Multiple pages with login

User question:

> instead of as many logins as there are bookmarks? 

Only if that page has a "Stay logged in" option which saves the login information in a cookie. In that case you have to login once in a browser tab of WebSite-Watcher, this will write the cookie which will then be used for the bookmark checks.

If it's not possible to save login information permanently, then you have to record a check macro for each bookmark. In that case it's not possible to share the login information.

Show removed content

User question:
> Is it possible that website watcher also shows the removed content in a different color?
> Or maybe it opens both versions (tiled vertically or horizontally) so I don't need to 
> click another icon to get that

This only works when you call it manually via the browser toolbar.

If you want to see it in the same document, you have to use the highlight method "Exact" with the option "Show removed content".

Autostart script and AutoWatch

User question:
> I use the option to automatically start AutoWatch when I launch

> only thing that I changed was that I created an Autostart script to

When you use the special script "autostart.wws" (which is executed each time you start WebSite-Watcher), then the option to automatically start AutoWatch is not used.

You have to start AutoWatch manually in your script as the following example shows:

ImportBookmarks /Text1 (+)
   /file="c:\folder\urls.txt" (+)
   /targetfolder="testfolder" (+)
