Exactly what I was needing

Work well and do the job. Maybe a feature like a loop on sub-path to import as post or display can be useful. Anyway thanks a lot.

Versatile and Powerful

Great plugin. It's a little tricky at first to get going with the arguments and API but you can precisely pick anything off other webpages with this thing!

Good work

Very good plugin.

Not good for non coders

I am bascially looking to scrap data live form pages using jquery. though i dont know coding, i started scraping and getting a bit of it by kimono app. before it shutdown i neede to switch and so I got into data scraping studio to get json files.
But thought scraping directly from web to wordpress would be better,
But the coding is tougher than both i used earlier. tutorials arent available properly.
Mostly annoyng as no visual clues before importing.

This is exactly what I've been looking for since quite a while now.

I've been looking into web parsing solution for quite a while now and when I stumbled upon this plugin, it really cheered me up since I didnt have to fiddle with much code or anything to achieve what I wanted. This plugin does exactly exactly what it says. And the support from the developer is very good; best I've ever seen.

Great plugin

Considering what this plugin does, I would discount some of the negative reviews. First off, because of the many situations web scraping must accommodate, this is not a simple click and you-re done plugin. Can't be. For a very reasonable fee, the author helps with the coding for your project. You can poke around and figure it out too, but that's where you could get frustrated. Perhaps, in the spirit of open source, this author could make the plugin generate the clues to restrict the scrape to the content you want, but for now, I don't think it's unreasonable. It does a great job and is very flexible. The author made a special revision for my situation which involved scraping a site that redirects to a dynamic address. Works great. I havent found the issues with high overhead yet, but I will update the review if I do.

Update fails

Good plugin: one has to struggle a bit to get it working, espcially in ordr to to get content updated.

Great Idea but...

Uses too many resources and slows down performance.
And looking at all unanswered topics on the forum page, I cannot rely on this plugin.

great plugin..
