Webscrape: link+title on a page & description in another

Post by Moal » Mon Jan 09, 2006 2:06 am

Hello,

Using a Webscrape config file, is it currently possible to generate a feed where link and title exist on a page and the description on another? In other words; Can description value be extracted from another webpage reached by following the item's link?

For example;

1. Extracting links and titles from this message board http://www.investorshub.com/boards/boar ... ard_id=369

2. And using/following links extracted above to extract the content of each message such as the content of this individual MB post:
http://www.investorshub.com/boards/read ... id=9165377 . and placing the content of this single MB post in the description part of the formed feed for that item.

That would be awesome

Thanks for any help

Sorry -- title, link, and description are all generated from the pattern matches. I can't fetch the description from the link without rewriting the code.
