Mapping sites PowerMapper Desktop Manual

To map a site:

It's best to start off with a small site before scanning large sites.

PowerMapper scans sites by following links on each page it scans to find new pages to scan. It's like clicking on every link on a page to find new pages, then clicking on all the links on the found pages.

Choose which pages are scanned

The scope of the scan is controlled by the radio buttons in the side bar:

If you need to scan additional domains as part of the same scan see including other domains in the scan.

Sites with a password

Navigate to the login page, enter the username and password to login, then click Build Map in the side bar. If the logged in site has a Logout link you may need to block it to prevent a log out during scanning. See scanning sites with a password.
