Introduction

This chapter gives instructions on how to use Monsido to do a single-page scan. Monsido allows the user to scan any page individually, outside of the normal website crawl. This is useful for error checks on a single page that has been recently updated.

The Monsido extension also allows users to scan individual pages from domains that are not included in their Monsido subscription.

Note: Monsido does not track or collect data on pages that are not covered by the subscription, it only shows the results at the moment of the scan.

Important: Monsido needs to access the pages in order to scan them. This can be a challenge for some CMS systems. If you have issues with the single-page scan, whitelist the IP address. If needed, contact the Monsido support team.

Note: The results of single-page scans on an external page are not saved in the Monsido database and cannot be marked as being fixed. The counters that display these scan results are not live and are only updated after each new scan.
