  • (2015-03-12) Dan Skelton: Not a bad little extension. I use it for my phpBB forum, for checking unread threads, works perfectly. However, can do with some cosmetic work, maybe give the settings page a makeover. Other than that, good extension.
  • (2013-03-29) Larry Gilbert: Helpful little extension for power users. Going a little beyond simple checking of Web content, it will allow you to define a regular expression for any page and either count the number of hits OR let you extract numbers to display directly. Clever. Bugs: * Does not handle unresponsive websites gracefully. * Sometimes freezes and stops working for no apparent reason.

    Hi, I have a forum that uses Apache protection as well as a standard log in. The checker displays the foruum in question as an error. Any ideas?
