I'm about to accept a small contract to help optimize an existing website. The developer tells me they don't have a map of the site (other than in their heads, I presume). Is there software available which will 'crawl' the site, noting page/file names and the relationships between them?
Thanks... camm

BlackWidow will rip the site but surely if you have access to the site you should be able to use FP or dreamweaver to draw the map for you.

Xenu Link Sleuth [home.snafu.de] will give you a site map but won't draw the relationship between the pages. The program is free.

Unfortunately some sites block Xenu...for understandable reasons. Otherwise its a good tool
