    tried this too with the same results: [wpws url="http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/index.html" selector="tGroupDetail" on_error="1"]

    In the page 'http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/index.html', tGroupDetail is a div class. Hence the right selector is '.tGroupDetail' and the right shortcode is [wpws url="http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/matches/index.html" selector=".tGroupDetail" basehref="http://www.fifa.com"]

    Note that I have added basehref for all the relative links and image paths to function properly.

    ah, sorry, I must have missed that instruction, I do know what a class/id is but I was just using the name as selector, not including the "." or "#" :-(

    thanks for helping out!
