Some sites may contain mix of prefixed and non-prefixed URI's. For example, domain http://www.example.com may have links to both http://www.example.com and http://example.com. If configured correctly, the non-WWW links should redirect to the WWW links (or vice-versa), but if not, or if you want to copy a site without the interim redirects, Sitemap Creator can help.

To automatically fix mixed prefixes

  1. From the Project Properties dialog, click the URI Normalization category
  2. Check the Ensure internal links match domain prefix option
  3. Click OK to save your changes and close the options dialog

When this option is set, Sitemap Creator will automatically transform any links that match the source host, but either have a WWW prefix and the source does not, or do not have a WWW prefix while the source does.

Note that this option only applies to URI's matching the host domain; it will not apply to any external domains included in the copy.
