Support » Plugin: WP Web Scraper » Can this scrape WordPress posts from other blogs?

  • So I’m trying to scrape posts from another WordPress blog. Can this plugin do that?

    By reading the description, I understand that it scrapes real-time data from other sites, which by definition (as far as my understanding goes), means that the data will eventually get replaced by new data/information.

    What I’m looking for instead is that post titles & post content from another WordPress blog be scraped and pushed to my WordPress post editor and saved as Drafts.

    Can this plugin do that?

    Thanks.

    I do not think so because the plugin executes php and prints the results on a page. In the editor, you can use php code in wp if you have a plugin. But showing the results of code (meaning the parsed code) is not possible inside an editor.

    But you can scrape data from other blogs and show it on your blog. Do you know how that goes?
