We are playing with our first extra section and have run into an issue.  We have a folder called “headlines-articles,” under which there is a directory structure that corresponds to the date.  Our URL looks like this:

Now, we are trying to create an extra section that only finds the top 100 “hit” files inside the 2008 folder, so we created the extra section condition and Column Values as follows:

ExtraSectionCondition1 =  “URL,\\/2008\\/headlines\\-article\\-only*\\.html”
ExtraSectionFirstColumnValues1 = “URL,(.*)”

However when we run awstats, we get a list of what appears to be our
top 100 hits from throughout the site, it seems like our condition isn't even
considered.  Is there another setting that we need to tweak to allow us to view hits inside this folder?  thanks for your help ahead of time.

Try this :


It will only pick up URL's starting with /headlines-articles/2008/  and ending with .html .

I gave that a shot, but still get the same results.  Is there a different REGEX we need to consider for our ExtraSectionColumn?  This seems very wierd – we created another extra section (#2) with the same parameters – and got different results.  Then we switched the two and the 2nd picked up the results from the first and the first picked up the results from the second.  Seems like there's another setting that is/isn't set correctly.

When you are testing with Extra Section, it is highly recommended that you perform the tests starting from a new empty AWStats database. Always ename or delete existing database files before you run a new test. Please try again.
