    trying to get a table with soccer results from another page.

    – images aren’t fetched, I guess the guys have a protection against hotlinking. how about fetching and caching images?
    – some table cells have differently coloured backgrounds which are overridden by my wordpress theme. now if I insert a general css code like td { background-color: none;} they will lose even those.

    any solutions for these problems?

    tried replacing the relative link with the absolute but no results although I cleared the cache:

    [wpws url="" selector="#c1" replace="src="/" replace_text="src="" output="html" cache="1440" timeout="3"]

    what could be wrong?

    @ Ovidiu

    Sorry for the delayed reply. There’s a basehref param in the shortcode which can be used for this. Simply use:

    [wpws url=”” selector=”#c1″ basehref=”” output=”html” cache=”1440″ timeout=”3″]

    Just in case this does not work, drop a comment with the actual URL on the plugin page –

    worked perfectly 🙂 thanks a lot!

    Hey did you have to set up some php before this would work? I tried the shortcode, but nothing shows up – I am a little confused as to how to proprely set this up.

    I’m trying to get data from
