Web graber / content ripper for WP?
some years ago, I used a small CMS called phpcms – a simple filebased application. There were not very much plugIns and special applications for phpcms, but that was no problem, because the phpcms had a little tool called webgrab http://www.phpcms.de/webgrab/index.en.html
With webgrab, I could rip content from any other app I used (php, asp, perl, phyton etc.) into my phpcms. The graber just deletes html header, footer, special formatings and rewrites the links inbetween the app into a webgrab path. Well, this doesnt’t make phpcms really faster ;), and it isnt’t the most elegant solution. But the grabbing-tool worked fast enough for websites with small or medium traffic (example: http://www.phpcms.de/forum/index.en.html – a stand alone forum parsed into a phpcms layout)
So my question: Is there any plugIn for wordpress, that gives me the possibilty to grab content from any kind of stand alone app into wordpress? What’s the best solution? Using a plugIn-tool like ezsatic and a standalone-version of webgrab? Any idea, how I can use other apps inbetween my wordpress layout (for example a customized merchandising shop like this http://www.epresso.com/shops/frame.php?shopId=1202&&lang=en ) ???
Thanks for your time..!
