Support » Plugin: MyCurator Content Curation » website thinks we're a bot

  • Resolved janlarsmueller


    Hello Mark,

    We’ve been having an issue with one of the news sites that we use a lot. It thinks we’re a bot–or it suggests that a plug-in we are using is preventing JavaScript from running. Below is the message the site gives us when we try to grab an article. It mentions a CAPTCHA to fix the issue but no CAPTCHA is actually offered.

    Might you have any suggestions or light to shed on the situation?

    Thanks much, Jan

    To grab the web page, MyCurator uses a service that knows how to pull out text from a web page (and not get all of the ads etc). This service will look like a bot to the page. I’ll contact the service to see what might be done. Not sure if we can make it not look like a bot to them.

    Thank you very much. I appreciate you asking.
