  • This isn’t a bad plugin – per-say! (you don’t say?)

    I cannot give it a full 5 star review, but it does derive (it), especially for what it tries to achieve.

    In use, in your admin backend on the purpose build scrape screen, you select the target web-page to (scrap), grab the title, grab the content: then save, but you can only save it as a (Post) – Not a (Page!) Which then necessitates converting it, but at least the image links get dragged over and saved properly.
    The advert at the bottom isn’t welcome, which then necessitates yet more editing.

    Now, I’m moving hosts and sites soon, and I am looking at dragging over only half of my content. Cloning is gonna be hard work, this could do it, but the Post -> Page means that it’s a pain. This feature is no doubt in the Pro version, but I don’t know.

    As I say, this Plugin ain’t half bad, but fiddly to use: especially if you’ve got a hundred or so Pages to go through. If you’ve got the time, then fire it up.

    Hope it helps.

    I appreciate your review and wanted to let you know you can save the scraped content as a page or post. on the top right of the edit screen change publish/post type to page.
    I hope this helps
