The rules of this plugin say:
The element is the target element of the content from the remote page you would like.
You could specify the body element if you would like the entire page, or you could specify something like div#div_id_name to get the contents of that specific div.
But what does that mean? I mean, I understand that in order to get our content on a blog post we have to write ‘[web-scraper]’, but where do we have to do the specifying?
Also if we want the 5th of a dozen div ids available, can we specify that specific div? Can we scrape a div on the basis of it being the first div when the contents inside the div will be constantly changing?
And where do we define the webpage we want scraped?
thanks, it looks like a very nice plugin but I don’t think there are many instructions
