http-equiv="refresh" content changing to anything

PostPosted: Thu Aug 25, 2005 5:21 am

Some sides use the following command, to let the server "breathe" a little while ;-)
Code: Select all
http-equiv="refresh" content="15"

Now I tried http-equiv="refresh" content="****"
and the replacement text should be: http-equiv="refresh" content="0"

Admuncher always tells me, that the replacement text must be smaller.

So the simple question is, how can I wildcard the "match text", so any side with an equiv tag entry would be changed to >content="0"< ?

Thanks in advance

Options tab.

Left side.

"Prevent sites reloading themselves"

Thank you for the reply. I had this activated all the time, but:

1.) still see the refresh code in the source (shouldn`t it be modified then ?)
2.) the side waits 15 seconds until it loads the next side

Maybe I wasn`t clear enough in my post.
The side is not loading itself, it`s redirecting to the next side. Mostly PHPbb forums do that, maybe to lower the server traffic caused by many users surfin at the same time.

This forum does it too after you have posted something ;-)
Some forums just raised the counters, thats why I would like to make a wildcard replacement, but I don`t understand the ** sentence under Match Text in the Admuncher config.
Tools->Replace Text

Let me see what this side has as a refresh counter, i`ll press the submit button and look in the source code:

ok here it was written a 3:
Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="3;url=viewtopic.php?p=1910#1910">

but some have a 15 or even 20 or so and I would like to make a rule for myself that changes those numbers to 1
Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="**;

so the ** should stand for any side that uses 2 or 15 or 60 and the replacement text is:

Code: Select all
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;

My question is just, how would be the right syntax in Admuncher.

thank you

Using your example I think this would work.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="*;url=**">
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=*">

Ah now i understand.
Yeah that was the trick ;-) match text =** and replace only *

thank you

I still don't understand how the replace text filter works. Can someone please explain? The help doesn't do explain clearly enough.
