A CSS selector saying which links on the page (<a> elements with href attribute) shall be followed and added to the request queue. This setting only applies if Use request queue is enabled. To filter the links added to the queue, use the Pseudo-URLs setting.

If Link selector is empty, the page links are ignored.

For details, see Link selector in README.

Pseudo-URLs

Specifies what kind of URLs found by Link selector should be added to the request queue. A pseudo-URL is a URL with regular expressions enclosed in [] brackets, e.g. http://www.example.com/[.*]. This setting only applies if the Use request queue option is enabled.

For details, see Pseudo-URLs in README.

Max number of pages checked per domain

The maximum number of pages that the checker will load. The checker will stop when this limit is reached.

If set to 0, there is no limit.

Maximum concurrent pages checked per domain

maxConcurrentPagesCheckedPerDomainintegerOptional

Specifies the maximum number of pages that can be processed by the checker in parallel for one domain.

Specifies the maximum number of domains that should be checked at a time. This setting is relevant when passing in more than one URL to check.
