If I choose “Monitor Full Page”, I get notifications of changes on every refresh because there is a tiny change to the source on refresh as seen in the image below. Is there a way to exclude that small bit when it checks for changes?
If I choose to only monitor the text that says “Tickets are sold out now. Check back soon.”, it doesn’t detect when it’s gone. Is that due to the popup confirmation from Ticketmaster that needs to be clicked once there are tickets available and the page changes? And if so, how to work around it?
To monitor a webpage for a specific type of change, it’s best to focus on particular sections of the page. If the selected element, such as an availability message, might disappear later, include an additional, more stable element in your selection, like the title. This approach ensures that the monitor will send an alert when the “sold out” message is no longer present.
it makes sense, but as stated, when I select to only monitor a part of the page like the “Tickets are sold out now. Check back soon.” portion, Distill is not seeing that it goes away. It checks the page, but it does not detect when that text goes away. I’ve tried over and over and over and over and Distill does not see or notify of any changes when the “sold out” message is no longer present.
