WP Web Scraper
Scraped site not updating, cache? (3 posts)

    I'm scraping a weather site and the information being pulled in from WP Scraper has not been updating. I tried the cache option in the shortcode, but this did not fix it.

    Do I need to clear the cache? How do I do that automatically? Is there some other change?

    Right now this appears to be broken, at least for what we're using it for.

    You may set cache to 0 in the shortcode to make it realtime (Add cache="0" in the shortcode)

    That didn't work, but what did was commenting out the IF and ELSE statements referring to the cache in the plugin's functions.php file.

    That's when I got it to work, which is disappointing because I'd rather not have to hack code and maintain patches like that.
