What search depth did you select? If you left it at the default, that's probably the problem. Try changing the search depth to 5 and see what happens.

Hope this helps. :) BTW, welcome to the forums, majestique. We're glad to have you here.

thanks for the welcome :) this script is the best search script .. and i've definitely looked ALL over.. anyway.. i tried setting it to 4 and 5.. and it would still do give me only 1 page.. so what i did was enter in a sub folder within the site.. and that worked beautifully.. the weird thing was.. it indexed my wmv files!? what the heck.. anyway i just went ahead and deleted that.. and entered in the videos folder in my dissallow in robots.txt..

also when i clicked on dig this.. the page seemingly halted.. but it isn't because when i close it.. and enter in the admin area.. i notice my #s going up as I refresh.. shouldn't the temporary table be 0? it's currently stuck at
"Temporary table : 79 Entries "

here's what my database status looks like:
Hosts : 1 Entries
Pages : 36 Entries
Index : 4217 Entries
Keywords : 145076 Entries
Temporary table : 79 Entries

The temporary table should be empty when you have finished with the spidering process. Sometimes the process hangs for no good reason, and I have yet to figure out why. I've had that happen a couple of times, but when I started over, it worked like a charm. Go figure.

You might try emptying the phpDig tables and starting over. Before you re-index though, make sure the value for LIMIT_DAYS is set to zero so you'll be able to do that.

If you still have problems, let us know. We'll be glad to help. :)

Hmmm. Sounds like you have something in your robots.txt file that is blocking everything. Either that or did you use: <!-- phpdigExclude -->
<!-- phpdigInclude --> comments to exclude any links? That's another thing that could potentially trip you up.
