After reading this article about adding .browser files for a bug in .NET :
Questions I have in general about .browser files in relation to that article:
1) How do I know what exactly to match up between the browser information and the tags below:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Googlebot/2.1; +http://www.google.com/bot.html)
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp)
Yahoo-Blogs/v3.9 (compatible; Mozilla 4.0; MSIE 5.5; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/crawling/crawling-02.html )
Mozilla/2.0 (compatible; Ask Jeeves/Teoma; +http://sp.ask.com/docs/about/tech_crawling.html)
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; BecomeBot/3.0; MSIE 6.0 compatible; +http://www.become.com/site_owners.html)
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/.... (Tous les users agent de Konqueror que j'ai testés plantent)
Tags - ok, his example shows you how to setup the .browser tags for the Yahoo! Slurp but what about the rest?
For example, I'd assume the browser tags below for Ask Jeeves above would be something like this below but without knowing the params in the above list, I am not sure exactly the values that should be set in the browser file:
id="NOT SURE HERE"
match="NOT SURE HERE" />
2) I assume for .browser files, I need to add a .browser file for each on his list in the App_Browsers folder in my web project and simply just change the browser, useragent, and capability tags shown above for the fix and leave the rest as is in his browser
3) Where did he get those lines of text and what are the params and what do they mean? For example where did he find this line:
Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Yahoo! Slurp; http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/ysearch/slurp) and in the parenthesis, what do
the params stand for for each ; ?
