PHP Web Scraper helps you generate code to automatically get HTML from a web page and display it on your website. The main benefit of using this plugin is that it directly retrieves HTML from the source you specify, so the data always remains up-to-date. This is especially useful for grabbing frequently updated data like news, prices, stock quotes, rankings, etc.
For example, to get the latest Football scores from a website, all you need to do is give the URL of that page and a CSS selector to the app and then insert the generated code into the source code of your page. Then when your page is visited, it shows the latest Football scores retrieved from the original source.
Please try the script before buying it, because it might not be able to scrape data from some sites. PHP Web Scraper cannot grab the following types of content:
Videos: YouTube, Vimeo, and most other video sharing websites.
Flash: The contents of flash files (the flash file itself can be retrieved).
Content Visible Only to Registered Users: Profile page, inbox, etc.
Note that if the html you want to grab contains images with relative paths, they won’t show up on your page.
Can I use this on WordPress?
Unfortunately not, but we have developed a separate plugin for WordPress too.
Can I use CSS to style the scraped HTML?
Yes, you can easily style the scraped content using CSS – the same way you style HTML elements on your page.
Yes you can. Instruction on how to do that is included in the documentation.
Is the grabbed HTML automatically updated without refreshing the page?
No, the HTML is updated only when the user visits or refreshes the page.
In which format will I receive the data?
You’ll receive HTML in the same format as the source, but it won’t have any CSS applied to it.
Can I use this plugin to automatically clone webpages?
No, that’s not the purpose of this plugin. This plugin is designed to scrape frequently updated data like prices, rankings, etc.
Can I grab HTML from multiple sites and display them on one page?
Yes you can. Simply generate code for each page and insert it inside your page. Just remember you need to define a different element in the “insert into” field for each code you generate.
You can also grab multiple elements from the same page by defining multiple CSS selectors: #id , .class , p (divide selectors with a comma)
If you decide to use this software product, do it with responsibility and make sure that you are allowed to display the grabbed HTML contents from the web page by checking its terms of usage. We assumes no responsibility for any abusive use of this software product and/or violation of any terms of usage of the grabbed web pages. This software product is sold exclusively on codecanyon.net.
Web scraping is also known as web ripping and html extracting.
