Creating a Spider

Want to spider a site, indexing all pages and links within it? Using the new Verity engine included with CF5 you can. In the Verity BIN directory (under CFUSIONVerity) you’ll find a utility named vspider. Execute it, specify the URL and other parameters, and it’ll do the rest for you. You’ll be able to search the indexed data using the tag, just like any other Verity collection. (Applies to: ColdFusion 5)
