Hi,

Can this plugin automatically extract the external image url for every new post and add into library as attachment?

I meant it’s dynamic and there is no user/admin intervention required, as long as there is external image source in the post.

Thanks.

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for getting in touch.
The plugin was not designed to offer this functionality.
Cheers!

Hey, thanks for the past help, I am starting to get a hang of mastering the shortcode, but I ran into a new little problem, some pages have to much content in the div I wan’t, and they didn’t properly named the classes inside, so I can’t handpick or strip them.

Is there a way to set a limit of lines or characters ? Lines would be wonderful, to prevent accidentally striping words.

Thanks.

WiseLoop

Hello,
There is no support for limiting lines or characters but if this feature will be requested by more users we will consider adding it in the next releases.
Cheers!

Hi,

I just bought and downloaded your plugin but it breaks my wp-admin/widgets.php page. I can see the available widgets but the #widgets-right section is completely gone and so is the mouse-over function for my leftside navigation .. Just tested this issue for 3.6 and 3.7 WP version and non-Genesis and Genesis framework .. it breaks the widgets page in every setup.

Please advise. Thanks.

WiseLoop

Hello,
Please send us an email containing a screenshot as we were trying hard to reproduce the behavior you described but we could not reproduce it. Are you sure that this is due to our plugin? This issue should have been reported already by all users already – but this is quite new and strange of course. But anyway, the screenshot maybe will help.
Thanks.

Dear (?) Wiseloop,

It’s been another 3 weeks now that I’ve been waiting for an answer. I send you the screenshots including a detailed explanation of what’s NOT happening. Frankly I don’t care if the problem is new or strange to you, you leave me hanging here with no support whatsoever which is not a nice thing to do. Today I tested the plugin with the new 3.8 with the same bugs. Again I encounter the problem on different platforms with different browsers and frameworks on different hosting providers.

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for your patience,
We have studied your screenshots, reviewed our code and we come to the conclusion that the issue you encountered has nothing to do with our code and probably some different constellation of factors contribute to the occurrence of the issue. By, factors I mean that from the screenshots I see that there are some other plugins you are using and I think that some combinations of them makes the issue appear; have you tried to install our plugin on a clean WP instance and then maybe install and activate the other plugins one by one and see what’s happening?
More, after reviewing our code we really did not touch any WP host CSS styles so that the mouse hover effect to be affected and of course the code do not does tricky things with the WP admin area to break its layout – it just plugs itself like WP documents this.
Even more, the plugin was bought by over 270 users yet that are using it inside different WP instances and versions, and I’m sure that if this issue was related to our plugin, the issue would have been reported by now.
So, as an advice, I would try to install the plugin on a new, fresh and clean WP instance and then install the other plugins one by one.
Thank you and good luck!

Hello – Would it be possible for someone to assist me in writing the proper shortcode to pull an element from an XML file?

I’m just not sure how to write the code when I need to pull a value from the ”<column name=”id”>2055</column> and the next field <column name=”screencap”>http://IMAGEURLHERE</column>

Thanks for any assistance … Ellie

P.S. TO AUTHOR: My apologies for emailing you via your profile AND posting ? here. Had a blonde moment…

I have also purchased the media grabber, however I am NOT using it as I do not want to download the image to my media library. I only want to show the image from my other URL.

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for buying,
We receive your email and please give us a little time to handle it and we’ll get back to you asap.
Thanks.

I can not link me appears Tag not found.

This is the shortcode

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for buying, Can you please re-issue the question as for some reason the shortcode cannot be visible here. Thanks.

wordpress v3.8.1 supported?

Hello
Yes, it is supported.

<- I request this as well…

almost ready to buy now… just a few more questions…

from what I see, there could be problems if a website does not label it’s posts by ID / Class’es properly… does it support pseudo elements?

http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_pseudo_elements.asp

is there some way to target the first (latest post) and extract content from it if it’s not labeled properly?

WiseLoop

Hello,
The pseudo elements are located inside a CSS file so they have nothing to do with the actual HTML code that is processed by the extraction engine; of course if such elements are added inline HTML under the style attribute, then, yes they can be used to identify the desired content to be extracted. The engine is capable of extracting HTML DOM elements even they are not marked with classes or IDs considering just the tag name; in this case the identification might be a little difficult or even impossible but that’s why the idx attribute of the shortcode was designed (please check the documentation regarding this attribute: http://wiseloop.com/tutorial/webgrabber-wordpress-plugin/the-shortcode ).
Cheers!

Does this plugin really work? Is it still being updated and supported? Does it work with the current version of wordpress? I am asking because your demo site seems to be a mess and i don’t see any demo pages of a grabbed website.

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for getting in touch,
The plugin is of course supported, it works perfect with the latest version of WordPress and the demo site is working just fine; you can see it here: http://wiseloop.com/wordpress-plugins/webgrabber/ (it is a post using the plugin to grab various content).
For more information you can also visit the product page here: http://wiseloop.com/product/webgrabber-wordpress-plugin
Cheers!

Default-user

I already took a look at the links you provided however, I don’t see anywhere it is grabbing any website and displaying it within a wordpress post or page. Am i missing something?

WiseLoop

Probably yes,
http://wiseloop.com/wordpress-plugins/webgrabber is a WordPress post generated using the [webgrab] shortcode. The content surrounded by dotted red square is the grabbed content and above you can find the actual [webgrab] shortcode with its parameters used to grab that content. Please have a closer look.
Cheers!

Hi,

Plugin seems to work great and i can use the shortcode in posts etc etc , but i don’t have the Webgrabber option under my Settings. Using WP 3.8.3.

What might cause this problem or how to solve?

Thanks in advance!

Hello and thank you for buying!
Please send us an email message from our envato profile page to initiate a support request. We will answer and discuss all details by mail a.s.a.p.
Cheers!

activecontent

Request sent. Maybe i confused the setting option with the Web Media plug-in ?

WiseLoop

Right, probably it’s a confusion with our other grabbing plugin that deals with media. Web Grabber WordPress plugin works through [shortcodes] that are meant to be inserted in pages or posts; there are no settings for that.
Cheers!

Hello , I purchased this plugin and i want travel.clubvacation.org page to get loaded in my page how can i do that in wordpress pages I tried a lot but i’m not able to understand

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for buying,
To include foreign content into your pages you must use the [webgrab] shortcode. For more information you can check the included documentation or this link: http://wiseloop.com/tutorial/webgrabber-wordpress-plugin/the-shortcode
Cheers!

i want to buy the plugin but i am not sure if it will work for me. can I ask for refund after purchase if something goes wrong? I want parser images and text from one site and put it into my website.

plus if possible i want to combine some post with the same name in one post.for example. imagibe there are 3 posts with different pictures inside but the same name of the posts. can I combine all pictures in a one post?

WiseLoop

Hello and thank you for getting in touch,
You can use multiple shortcodes inside a page or post, therefore you can insert content coming from different various sources. Regarding refund, unfortunately we do not control this, envato is responsible for handling financial stuff.
Before buying, please read our support policy available here: http://wiseloop.com/support-policy

I get this error, when I use the most simple string URL “Check if your IP address “xx.xx.xx.xx” has access permission to this URL.

Default-user

why don’t you write anything to my question?

Default-user

Anyway the plugin didn’t read a certain id for some reason and age that error but it started reading a parent div.

WiseLoop

Hello, thank you for buying and sorry for the tardy response,
Please send us a sample of your shortcode that isn’t working. Regarding, the denied permission message, the message is shown when the IP of your WordPress instance (where grabber plugin is installed) is not allowed to access the target URL due to some restrictions, IP filters etc. Those restrictions are set on the target URL server and obviously we/you do not have any control over it.
Cheers!

Hi, this plugin seems great.

Before buying it, I need to know if it can be used to grab and save Google SERP ?

What I mean do to is to grab SERP for a specific keyword and/or a set of keywords then save it in WordPress in a post or a data sheet.

Is this plugin able to do that ?

WiseLoop

Hi,
Regarding saving the cache in a db, it is not quite possible the cache is custom formatted and having such a feature is way beyond the scope of the plugin; the plugin does just what it says it does: grabs web content and display it in your pages or posts with or without some additional processing of the grabbed results; caching is optional also and exists for optimization reasons in order to avoid unnecessary traffic between your site and the grabbed page – so saving it in the wp db is not necesarry.
We received your e-mail and we will answer soon.
Thanks!

Hi Wiseloop, thank you for your answer. The interesting thing about saving SERP in wp db (or within a post as HTML) is that we would be able to save historic record of a particular search.

Tell me if I’m wrong, but we could customize the plugin in order for the results to be save within a post, right ?

As, for instance, using update_post() with the grabbed HTML formatted string?

WiseLoop

I don’t think that the licensing terms allows you to modify the product unless you have an extended license. For more information please visit http://codecanyon.net/licenses or contact Envato directly as they are responsible for licensing.

Hi, how can this plugin works to retrieve Google SERP ? We’ve tried this shortcode but it is not working: [webgrab url=’http://www.google.fr/?q=search+term']

WiseLoop

Hi,
Please try like this: [webgrab url='http://www.google.fr/search?q=abc' charset='utf8']
Cheers!

Hi WiseLoop, how can I use a post custom field instead of the post content to insert the shortcode?

I suppose the class wlWgPluginEngine use the post content by default by I’d it to use my custom field value instead…

Thank you for your support and for this great plugin.
