Webscrape - page not found feature request

Post by timrray » Wed Mar 08, 2006 5:08 pm

It would be very handy if the Webscrape plugin could notify you somehow (possibly the same way Awasu's channel error shows up) if the scrapped page is not found. I had a scrape set up for a page that no longer exists and I didn't know it until I visited the page.

Are you using the DownloadUrl facility provided by Awasu or are you having WebScrape fetch the page to be scraped? If WebScrape, I would expect it to fail with a pretty obvious error if it can't find a page.

As far as I know I'm using Webscrape. If you're interested in seeing what I'm talking about, I could email you the ini and the page in question.

The DownloadUrl parameter is defined in the .plugin file and therefore appears in Awasu's dialog when you define the channel. What are the various settings in your channel properties?
