Hello, I'm having a little trouble with my spider. A lot of my pages when spidered are given a title of "Untitled" when recorded into the mysql database. But the truth is, they do have titles! I hope there is a solution for this. I'm guessing that this is happening because the titles have the '>' character in them. Could this be the cause? If so, how do I fix the script so that the titles will be included next time I spider? Thanks very much for your help!!:)

Is your title like this:

< titles are here >

All Character between < > are deleted, when spidered. This is set in: robot_functions.php - Line 160 !

Use &lt; and &gt; in your titles (instead of < and >).
Perhaps this can work so.


Thx.
Nicolas.

Thanks for your suggestions. I already solved my problem yesterday. I made some changes to the robot functions file so as to accommodate my titles and for other sites who may have the same form of title.
