  1. Bug - RECAP archive not updating with new docs

    The RECAP archive is not updating the docket list as more documents are purchased and downloaded with PACER/RECAP. The documents show up properly on archive.org, and on the raw HTML docket, but NOT on the RECAP search archive.

    Missing documents: http://archive.recapthelaw.org/flsd/320640/

    Documents are properly shown on archive.org:
    http://www.archive.org/details/gov.uscourts.flsd.320640/

    Documents are properly linked in the raw HTML docket on archive.org:
    http://ia600404.us.archive.org/3/items/gov.uscourts.flsd.320640/gov.uscourts.flsd.320640.docket.html

    I highly recommend fixing this bug as the fix would make the RECAP search much more useful.

    • Docket number search doesn't work

      Searching by Docket Number doesn't work. For instance, if I enter "1:10-cv-00455-BAH", I find nothing, nor if I search for substrings of that. But searching by case caption for that case, "CALL OF THE WILD MOVIE, LLC v. DOES 1-331" seems to wrk fine.

          • Automatically Add Free PACER Query info (i.e. date of last filing) to each case's homepage

            This would enable users to easily see if new documents exist and if a new docket should be downloaded.

              • upload PACER files from any source

                Provide a way to upload PACER docs from non-PACER sources--for example, http://www.lexology.com, where attorneys post reviews of cases, often include unaltered .pdf's of PACER docs. These could be added to ReCap's archive. (See, for example, http://www.lexology.com/library/detail.aspx?g=a7f640a9-5aab-4d53-91cd-6b1ec3d0fae7, which makes the 6/16/2011 order available, from Case 1:09-cv-01236-JMS-DKL Document 223 Filed 06/16/11 Page 1 of 15 PageID #: 2645 .)

                  • Bug - RECAP not updating docs nor showing existing docs

                    For the last couple of weeks, RECAP is not updating docs, although they got uploaded.
                    And in the last couple of days, it doesn't even show the icon to view existing docs, and it doesn't upload any docs, either.
                    This is with Firefox. I tried version 22, 27, and 29 nightly, on Windows 7 and Linux.

                    • Add an HTML sitemap

                      I notice you have an XML sitemap but Google is much more likely to index your entire site if you have an HTML one as well, linked to from every page. For example, on the Open Library we have:

                      http://openlibrary.org/index/

                      This quickly increased how much of our site was indexed. Also, you can go into Google Webmaster tools and up your crawl speed.

                          • Feature - Expand all

                            It would be really helpful to have an "expand all" button that expands all of the docket entries so that they can be searched.

                            It would also be nice to be able to set it as a preference, so that all of the docket entries are automatically expanded.

                              • Also upload party information

                                The archive seems only to grab summary/docket information on a case. When I visit the "parties" page for a case in PACER, that information in not uploaded. A lot of important meta information is excluded from a case's archive if that isn't uploaded. The same goes for the "case summary" page in PACER.

                                  • Allow browse of cases

                                    The only option seems to be to search for cases, but I think it would be valuable to add an option to browse or at least see a page with "newest" uploaded documents.

                                    • Archive docket page for Pacer # 262133 (CAED Court) not working.

                                      Hoping this is the right forum... Here is the docket page:
