Problems Monitoring a URL on voice123.com

Hi,

Your application looks like it will be perfect for me (I will buy it once I get these two sites working). Basically I want to monitor a particular URL on http://www.voices.com and http://www.voice123.com for jobs that get posted. What I've found is that with voice123.com I get a false positive every check because it appears a cookie is changing. Is there any way around this?

It wouldn't be a cookie changing that would trigger that. It's more likely dynamic content, e.g. banner ads and similar features.

This is exactly why the Smart Change Detection feature was created. You can set some start and end text to look for, and Simon will only detect a change if the content between those two changes. This way, you can ignore parts of the page that dynamically change.
