No More 404s -View a saved version courtesy of the Wayback M

Beitragvon xioc752 » Sa Aug 13, 2016 7:52 am

For those of us using YaCy to create serious archives - and everyone else!

In Firefox Test pilot,
There is a new Firefox add on to refer 404 pages to the WayBack Archive
"View a saved version courtesy of the Wayback Machine"
https://testpilot.firefox.com/

They write
Just Launched
No More 404s
Powered by the Wayback Machine
Tired of dead ends on the web?
We'll let you know when there's a saved version of what you're looking for on the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine.


Please, can we have the function in YaCy?
This would be VERY USEFUL!


The tools for it are Open Sourced - Firefox
This is scheduled to become a standard part of Firefox

Note: This is somewhat similar to the Cache Viewing "Ressurect Pages" Firefox addon
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/resurrect-pages/
Which covers that and these
o Google Cache
o The Internet Archive
o WebCite
o archive.is

This recoverable page option could be a very important function
Beyond the current fundamental question of "does it exist NOW"
This could be 'toggled' in the user results, for example.

This implementation as a Function to toggle on a case by case basis in the results, will preserve several important aspects of YaCy security and ALSO allow 'in depth' research, if needed.
We have users asking for something like this kind of function - who want to see 'lost' archival type records no longer displayed.

Thank you, and in many languages!

Hi, what exactly do you mean?
Would you like YaCy to provide alternative links (when they exist) to the archived version of any result which current status is 404? Instead of displaying dead links or hiding them from the results pages?

Hello,
as you may have noticed, even the W3C is now supporting web resources versionning on its own web site through the Memento Protocol.

Interesting points with the Memento project is that it appears to be already supported by many large web archives, and it also support self-archiving with SiteStory.

So one can imagine some YaCy support at various levels (crawling, index sharing, search results links...). I am not sure providing alternative versions links in search results is the most relevant to start with, considering it is supposed to be handled soon natively by browsers themselves...
