Support » Plugins » Web graber / content ripper for WP?

  • Hi,

    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

    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: – 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 ) ???

    Thanks for your time..!

  • None yet.
    There is ezStatic if you want to integrate a static HTML or PHP application within the template as if they are pages.

    With the new theme/template structure, it is fairly easy to modify other PHP files to utilize the theme structure, to ‘look’ like the rest of your site. Good for integrating news pages, carts/shops, etc.


    How ever, I tried for about one houer to use the parser ob webgarb inbetween WP – but I need to much time to fix all the bugs of that solution… example: and old forum (perl-cgi) parsed into WP (…endles bugs ;-)))
