     @ultan Thanks Ultan.  At some point I will get around to writing a hook to send me any URLs for misses so I can keep updating the underlying dictionary.  Appreciate the feedback 🙂

    George Echim Hey George – please try again – all should work now.  Performed some major site updates last week.  Also, have some new CMS definitions that I will add this week to the detection script here.
