When indexing, htdig follows links from the start_url setting. If
there's a link, either a standard <a href="..."> or a <link> tag in
the header, it will be followed. But if you don't have a link to your
user pages (for example), then it will never know they exist.

So you can either make sure there are links from the start_url to the
appropriate sections or make sure they're included in the start_url.
Keep in mind you can insert files into the config file like so:

start_url: `/path/to/url.file`
