Some Thoughts on the proxy things
« on: December 25, 2014, 03:53:02 pm »
We need A way Of testing why sites aren't returning results.

If I see "Virgin Media has received an order from the High Court requiring us to prevent access to this site." in the Script debugger its easy for me to understand why the script isn't working but for noobs they may just think bitche isn't much good.

We could also do with a way of testing the proxies and maybe switching them.

Possibly having country options to configure proxies depending on what country you are in.

Also there seems to be a bit of a bug in the handling of Proxies when the Profile begins with /

thanks, ill give a thought.

for the bug with Proxies/Profile.. its a URL Merge design, Proxy.com/MoreURL  +  /Profile =  Proxy.com/Profile.    But in this case,  you are expecting Proxy.com/MoreURL/Profile... Since that breaks URL merge rules, and could break HTTP redirect, etc I have to find a workaround.

well, i found a work around for the proxy issue with profile starts with / and the proxy has domain/extraurl. basically creates a @home2 variable.. the biggest issue was still being able to use @home to build urls, because that proxy returns all new links as /extraurl/link .. meaning it was building proxy/extraurl/extraurl/link based upon design.

also, added error codes to the Script Status column if there was a failure:

!## = HTTP Response Error Number
!TO = Connection Time Out
!NC = No Connection
!FH = Script 'Find' Halt  (either no results or bad html page)

seems to help quickly determine possibly status of the scripts.


testing all mirrors is another.. going to think about that.

like http://findproxyforurl.com/example-pac-file/ ?    it appears that is mainly focused on routing internet traffic to a proxy and keeping intranet traffic direct.. like in a corporate environment. but what are you thinking?

Well that was their original use of them but they are growing more popular these days most browsers now support them.
