Scoping provides the ability to test only certain portions of the page instead of the entire page. On many websites, there are elements or "template" areas that are consistent through all of or many of the pages on the site such as header, footer and navigation areas. Therefore, it is quite common to find one error reported multiple times when analyzing multiple pages, even though it is one single error within a template area. One way to avoid this in FireEyes and WorldSpace is via the Scope Definition feature.
Scope definitions can be created which allow testing to be limited to one or more specific sections of page, ignoring all other portions of the page that are not selected as part of the scope. This feature is valuable in situations where it is desirable to test specific features such as templates or, vice versa, to test the content and not the templates.
