Page watch tool

Does anyone have any ideas on a PAGE WATCH tool or an application that
allows a user to be notified when page changes automatically by email.

My immediate thoughts would be to use the FSO object to go in and check
files by date and then generate a CDO script.

Another possibility would be to limit the tool to database portions of the
site where I can track changes.

But, both approaches are complicated by the need to automatically notify the
user when a change is made. A scheduling function...

Any ideas appreciated.

Hi Tom,

A windows service? How would this work....I do not have control over IIS or
the remote platform of my web host (although a move to maximumasp.com may
allow this)....how does one utilize windows service to watch a website -
would this be working off my windows OS?

The .Net framework has a great object called a FileSystemWatch er, with which you could easily do what you are asking.

If that's not an option, then you could do like you suggested with the FSO. A better solution (in my opinion) would be to create a windows service to
watch the files for you.

I assumed you had control of the server.
Are you wanting to watch someone else's website? If so, then nothing I
suggested would work

I thought you wanted to monitor the files on your own server. If so, then I
would use Visual Basic to write a Windows Service that would watch the
folders/files you need to monitor. Again, the .Net framework, has better
tools for this.

Tom,

I could really use some more feedback on the options you gave me.

I don't really have time to tackle the .NET plaftorm and programming model
and have the whole marketing departement on my back to sort out a way to
allow us to send automatic email updates to our mailing list (500) whenever
a pages changes.

I decided to build a database app which houses our new boat listings and
records the insertion date etc and hoped to interrogate this to send out the
page alert.

It appears I still need to thus go for your other option which is VB
scheduling component which will monitor files....is there anything
commercially I can tap into as I am not sure I have the necessary skills
(yet) and time to build my own COM in VB 6....

Appreciate some help...
Jason

ps: My remote web host is MaxiumASP running on Win3k. My databases are
Access. Would the Vb scheduler work with the database or merely check the
..asp or htm file for a ModificationDat e and then do the alert?
