I agree that this is worth a notable mention in the wget output. At the very least, running with -d should provided more guidance on why the links it has appended to urlpos are not being followed. Buried in the middle of hundreds of lines of output is: no-follow in index.php On the other hand, if other rules prevent a URL from being followed, you might see something like: Deciding whether to enqueue "http://www.othersite.com/index.html". This is not the same hostname as the parent's (www.othersite.com and www.thissite.com). Decided NOT to load it. Tony
