Web Log Storming 2.7

Another Web Log Storming update is ready.

Search & replace for file names in Project Properties

This new feature you can use to rename accessed files however you wish them to appear in reports. One of uses involve grouping files.

In this image, you can see examples of grouping all *.gif images into single fictional /not_important file and all /image/* files into /any_image file.

Access methods introduced

From now on, in Hits report you can see which method web client used to access a file (GET, POST, HEAD, etc). Additionally, we added Method parameter under File parameters pane, so you can quickly check for any of methods. This is particularly useful for detecting hacker activity – you can now easily notice any suspicious POST access, which hackers often use when they are trying to upload malicious code to your website.

Other changes

Other changes in this version include:

+ Goals are clickable now in Overview report
& Search Engine detection only in domain
& Drill-down from Directory report: subdirectories are not excluded anymore
* “https” in referred URLs is correctly processed now
* Problem with quoted search phrases
* First goal was not visible on Overview report
* Crash when copying Overview report to clipboard in some cases
* Few other minor problems


This update is free to anyone who bought a license or update subscription within last two years (after Sep 3rd, 2010). Our standard policy is to give free updates for one year, but Web Log Storming wasn’t updated a lot during this year, so we felt it would be unfair for our users and decided to make an exception this time.
