Best format to use for URL in screenshot requests
Posted by Brandon Elliott on 19 August 2013 03:11 PM

The system will support many types of URLs in your screenshot requests.

For example:

&stwurl=http://www.msn.com

&stwurl=www.msn.com

&stwurl=msn.com

Any of those are acceptable and will continue to be supported. Note that msn.com and www.msn.com are captured separately, however. This is because some websites publish different pages to their non-www version, which we want to represent exactly and accurately.

Note: For maximum compatibility, such as UTF8 / UTF-8 compliance, we recommend that you UrlEncode the URL in the request. PHP Example: <?php print urlencode('www.msn.com');?>
