    I wish to select the entire contents of a text file.

    I tried using selector="*" and selector="" with no luck.

    [wpws url="http://batesweb.dabbledb.com/publish/batesweb/e034a6de-aeea-4dda-8a3f-476a7e4f3eb7/hubpreview.txt" selector="*"]

    Can this be done?

    The scraper is designed to work with files XML or XHTML files only. In its current state it wont work for text files. However, I see this as a valid addition to the next version.

    This can be simply achieved by leaving the selector blank if you are using the latest version (2.3)
