Bulk URL import hangs on some domains

Importing about 2400 URLs from Pocket to EagleFiler, and some of the links appear to stop the import process requiring me to kill them in the Activity window, showing a full progress bar.

Does EagleFiler have a (configurable) timeout where a link import will be canceled and show up as an Error instead?

Two problem domains are datanami.com and confluent.io. One example is https://www.confluent.io/blog/bottled-water-real-time-integration-of-postgresql-and-kafka/

Yes, there are some expert settings that you can set in Terminal:

defaults write com.c-command.EagleFiler WebToolTimeout 10
defaults write com.c-command.EagleFiler WebToolMaxTriesBeforeTimeout 3

These are the default values for EagleFiler 1.8.5 (in beta), and you can reduce them further if you want.

You may want to try the public beta version of EagleFiler, as it works around a few stalls importing URLs were EagleFiler was waiting to load some ad resources that were not actually needed.

Tried first with the defaults settings and a restart of the app, then upgraded to the beta. This URL still hangs in the import: https://www.confluent.io/blog/bottled-water-real-time-integration-of-postgresql-and-kafka/

OK, thanks. I will look into that and report back here.

I believe this is fixed in the new EagleFiler 1.8.5b4 beta.
