When I try to scrape TechCrunch, I don’t want to scrape all the posts, I want to scrape only selected one like with a keyword, how do I do that? If I do a search on the site for drones, and I copy the url and add too source url, then go to the title button and page loads up but there are NO search results being shown and I can’t click on the top title. Please advise. Thank You

Hi bluntman001,

There is no filter options currently but we plan to implement this feature in our next updates. Your way is right, you need to filter it at source site side but seems the search results page is loading the content with ajax technologies which makes it not suitable for scraping as it written in our F.A.Q section.

is it possible to update existing post without delete the content that is allready in the post? just that it will add new content to it?

Hi Mert112112,

It’s only possible if you enter the content that you want to protect to the template of content field. Otherwise it will be replaced with the new scraped content. Also please note that, all content you entered to template field will effect all scraped posts.

Regards.

Please add import/export option

Hi,

You can already export scrapes settings from under Tools > Import / Export menu of WordPress if you meant that. You can also copy / duplicate task under “All Scrapes” screen.

Hello, a plug-in for anyone looking for duplicates in their wordpresss

(“WP Delete Post Copies”) Exclude Campaign Creator. With each campaign you can search for and exclude duplicate posts (types) by title or content in different categories.

Version 5.1) https://br.wordpress.org/plugins/etruel-del-post-copies/

Hi axtudo,

Thanks for contacting us. And again, once you sent an e-mail to us, you don’t need to post it as a comment to inform us back again, we receive this message to the same inbox and it makes harder to follow the entries. Thanks for your understanding.

Regards.

Hi,

very nice plugin! Do you plan to extend the functionality to support WooCommerce product’s details such as product size? (e.g. for shoes, shirts, ..).

Thanks in advnace!

Thanks for your understanding ALGORiTMUS. Well, if nothing technically goes wrong we can say in the mid of Q2.

Regards.

But as we said before, it’s not a promise :)

Sure thing, thanks :)

Hi Support,

I have issues with plugins. When I import feeds, some images are duplicated. The images are shown twice. With some feeds, the images cannot be imported at all. Sometimes, the imported images are not placed in the right place, it placed somewhere in the article.

It is also the same issue when I use serial.

Could you please explain me how to best configure the plugins in order to avoid these issues.

With kind regards,

Hi legrandkaba,

If your theme shows the featured image which exists in your content at the top of your post it might look duplicated. If it’s your issue, we can share you a find & replace rule to remove the image from your content, this way it will only shown as featured imaj. If there is another issue, can you please share us a temporary admin so we can check for details? You can contact us from the contact form at http://codecanyon.net/user/octolooks#contact privately.

Regards.

Is it possible to exclude certain parts of the content? For example:
<div class="content">
     <div class="unwanted-intro">
          Unwanted content portion
     </div>
     Rest of the content
     Rest of the content
     Rest of the content
</div>

Hi access4atrenet,

You can enable find & replace option for content field and use enter the regex below http://www.phpliveregex.com/p/m3x

Find: <div class="unwanted-intro">.*?</div>
Replace: (leave empty)

Regards.

How is this Plugin different from WordPress Automatic Plugin or has any advantages ?

Hi cyberlawyer,

You can only get content from limited amount of sites if they only provide API services with the plugin you say, like Facebook, Twitter etc. But if you need to scrape / crawl these sites plus sites without API service almost every site, you will need our product. Thanks for your interest.

Regards.

Thanks for the response. Well appreciated !

Hi!

Great product, it’s something i’m after but i have some further questions…

I’ve just launched a ski community website: www.MountainVortex.com and I’m getting tired of posting things on the facebook page, then again on the site itself. I understand that this will help pull the posts onto the page…

1. will the styling be kept in order? or will i need to make some further edits to make them match the rest of the site?

2. If someone who isn’t admin posts the the fan wall on the facebook page does it send those to the site too?

3. I have a facebook login on my site, will it interact with that, i.e. if they are logged in through that and then post on the facebook page, it knows who they are and send the post to the page without it needing to be admin?

4. If users make comments on posts in facebook, can those comments appear at the bottom of the post within my site?

Thanks for your help

Hello Shelton,

Thank you for your interest,

1) Our plugin retrieves data as normal wordpress posts, you can use embed code to use facebook embedded view in your posts or choose manually. If you have videos in your posts you need to use embed code example.

2) Yes in serial scraping it gets all posts, you can try with our live demo too.

3) Your website login and facebook login details are two different things. Scrapes run in the background in your website, and posts as assigned author in the settings.

4) Sadly not, we do not retrieve comments as post comments in the plugin.

Happy Cyber Monday !

Thanks for the reply.

Is ‘author’ the only setting posters use? can it be edited to ‘Contributor’ so that we can manually authorise the post?

thanks

Hi again,

By default we include Super Admins, Admins, Editors and Authors ni the user select list, but with a little code modification you can get all users in your WordPress site too.

Best regards.

Hello. For the Cyber Monday sale, must all three licenses be purchased at once to get the fourth free? I wanted to get one license, fully test and if works well, purchase two more. Thank you.

Hi GoElemental,

No you do not need to purchase them at the same time. You can send us your other codes anytime you want. But we suggest you to not miss the 50% Cyber Monday Offer :)

Happy Cyber Monday !

Hello, Every time I scrape Amazon, no matter what product, the description always lists: “This fits your .

Enter your model number to make sure this fits.” This is nowhere in the product description on Amazon. It even shows up in your YouTube tutorial. How do you get rid of this? It is not formatted correctly and does not apply to most products. Thanks

Hello jmtraderguy32,

Can you share us your target url? We can check product descriptions and probably help you to write a regular expression to remove those words.

Kind regards.

Hi, I can’t use my own PURCHASE CODE. I received this error: Scrapes: ” Purchase code is already exists. Please provide another purchase code.”

Hi askwebmarketing,

Can you send us your purchase code via http://codecanyon.net/user/octolooks#contact so we can check it.

Kind regards.
