Link Checker

Hi all,

I’m trying to use the Link Checker addon.

Using 10 fresh proxies, and no issues with firewall or Malware bytes, the latter was turned off for attempted link audit.

The website is on a staging platform but should be crawlable.

I am seeing the error “Error Socket Connection”

I’ve tried reloading SB after turning proxies off, closing SB and restarting.  I got the same error with no proxies.

Can anyone help guide me to what I am doing wrong, please; thanks?

Kind regards,

Simon

How to add custom video link?

Got some advice from sven on how to get embeds across properties that accept html and he said to “it should be added as a custom video link with full <iframe…> format per line.”

How do I add the ‘custom video link’?
Is this the main add url section at the top of the main project section?

update i think i may have figured it out…article manager, insert up to x number of random videos, edit to own urls and add embed there. preview looks good. testing a live run now

WordPress Custom Post Status not Public but Viewable Through Link: Privately Published Posts

I have been working on my site to bring up private posts on my site. I built a custom post status for this purpose.

My goal is to exclude posts belonging to that post status from search, from Blog Page, from WordPress Queries, RSS Feed etc. Basically there should be no mentions of it anywhere on site.

Till here it seems simple, but the problem is that I WANT people to be able to view the post via direct link.

Basically I want it to be not mentioned throughout my site, but if someone visits it from direct link, they can view it.

function custom_post_status(){  register_post_status( 'privatised', array( 'label' => _x( 'Privately Published', array('post', 'download')), 'public' => false,  'exclude_from_search' => true, 'show_in_admin_all_list' => true,  'show_in_admin_status_list' => true,  'label_count' => _n_noop( 'Privately Published <span class="count">(%s)</span>', 'Aggregated <span class="count">(%s)</span>' ),  ) );  }  add_action( 'init', 'custom_post_status' );  

Here if you see in the Array, the first option is Public, and I set it to false, which basically ensures that my post is not there on my Blog Page, or search, or Taxonomy Page, or RSS FEED etc. Etc. But if I open the same post via it’s direct url, then it gives a 404, because not found…

Please help, me have my post visible only through the direct link of it.

As a sidenote, Is it possible that I can have it public, and then exclude it from Taxonomy and all, like I can do with exclude from search…

Bot protection, http-2 link header and google tracking

I opened a link hxxps://ts[.]la/carey16046, which was in a youtube comment, than I got redirected to a tesla[.]com root page and saw the message:

Access Denied: You don't have permission to access "http://www.tesla.com/" on this server. 

and got 403 code. Updating page/cleaning cookies didn’t work. In response headers (full) I spotted this:

link: <https://www.googletagmanager.com>;rel="preconnect",<https://www.google-analytics.com>;rel="preconnect",<https://track.securedvisit.com>;rel="preconnect" 

Than I went googletagmanager[.]com and it goes:

400: Your client has issued a malformed or illegal request. That’s all we know. 

I was okay with it, but in the title tag was: Error 400 (Bad Request)!!1 With the one in the end. Is it a joke? Last time I was on tesla’s site was week ago and it worked properly. I’m sure that there weren’t any suspicious activity coming from my ip address whatsoever, although I am currently in Russia.

What is link header? I’m using firefox with privacy settings on, might it be an issue?

No Client Hello w/ SNI when accessing website’s subdomain via link

I noticed this while testing SNI-based HTTPS filtering for fun.

mail.yahoo.com is blocked when accessed directly. It is not blocked if you login to your Yahoo account and access mail.yahoo.com via the “Mail” link. I ran a packet capture and see there are no Client Hello messages with the mail.yahoo.com name in the SNI extension field when I click the “Mail” link.

My assumption is that the client is somehow re-using the same connection since the *.yahoo.com certificate is valid for both domains. Anybody with some deeper knowledge of TLS able to clarify what’s going on or able to point me in direction of some documentation?

Also, if that’s the case, then why does Chrome send a Client Hello w/ Google subdomains when attempting similar tests via accounts.google.com?

NOTE: I’m blocking UDP/80 and UDP/443, so QUIC should not be influencing my results. Also, I use deep inspection in my day-to-day, so please no responses telling me to stop using SNI-filtering.

What is the FPTAS alogorithm to find flow at each link for multi commodity flow problem?

I have a graph, and K commodities to route from source to destination. I want to find, what is the maximum beneficial flow for each of the commodity and the relevant paths. I understand the problem in general falls under NPC, hence I am looking for FPTAS algorithms.

I am struggling with the problem, so any intuitive idea to tackle the problem is also most welcome.
