Large Websites and Slow Scans
Pages with a large number of links will scan slowly, especially when link scanning is enabled. To identify and exclude a problem areas on your website from being scanned:
- From the Web Accessibility Settings page, click on the “Scan and Notification” tab.
- Change the number of items to scan each cycle to 1 (3rd option on the tab) and then restart the scan.
- The url of the link being scanned will now be visible in the scan notice box.
- To remove a slow page from all future scans, click on the ignore button next to the url or add an exclusion for the slow page or portions of your website under the “Content to Monitor” tab of the Web Accessibility Settings page. Note: clicking on the ignore option will immediately stop the scan and redirect you to the link inventory.
