crawler.accept_cookies (collection.cfg setting)

Description

This option enables, or disables, the crawler's use of cookies. Cookies are small text files which are normally stored by a user's web browser to save their preferences and other information when browsing a web site.

In some cases e.g. crawling dynamic websites having cookie support turned on may be useful.

Note: if enabled, this value requires crawler.packages.httplib to be HTTPClient. This is the default HTTP library used.

Default value

crawler.accept_cookies=true

Examples

To disable this feature set it to "false" e.g.

crawler.accept_cookies=false
