Manage Web Archive Data
The web motion capture engine automatically archives the web pages. And you can manage them on this web console.
The web page is archived when the user access the page with capture code in the header section of the Html code.
It archives when there are no archived data or the archived page is lame. The data is used to represent the web page's design when you use heatmap analyser and re-player of the user experience.
The archived data is used in following functions.
- User mouse action re-player
- Heatmap generator
User mouse action re-player
The web motion capture engine has re-player of the user experience on the page. It uses archived Html as the back ground design to reproduce the page.
The page have to be same version with the one the actually users access. Therefore archiver uses version control of the archived data.
The heatmap generator uses the archived design.
The archive engine store following files on the web page.
- Html code
- Image files
- External Style Sheet (CSS) files
When it archives them, it convert the file and store them into database.
The html code of the page is converted by following scheme.
- Link to other page is disabled, replaced into "#"
- The image files' url are converted into url to load stored data in the database
Image files are converted into base64 encoded string and stored into the database record.
Style Sheet files
The Style Sheet uses reference to the images. Then the images are stored, and the urls of the images in the Style Sheet is converted into the url to load the image.
Responsive web design
The archiver stores html code and Style Sheet, they are not image screen shot. Therefore by using them, and remember the screen width, it can reproduce the design by code.
The smartphone pages generally has another url, which is different from desktop pc's page. Therefore the archiver store the url's Html code and design, and reproduce the design with them.
If the smartphone page's url is same with desktop page, it can not reproduce the design. Therefore this content management system does not use this style.
