Re: Emails scraping

Hi, It seems to me that you are setting the "Property" column of the "Extract" action to "Url". This will extract the URL of the current page. In order to extract the text of the element, it needs to be set to "InnerText". If you want to extract the URL that a link (such as the blue links in the Goo...

Re: Selection Mode Doesnt Work Sometime

The best thing you can do there is wait for Helium Scraper to finish a cycle, stop it right there and save. It will remember the current page when you save it.

I've uploaded an updated version of Helium Scraper. Now, when creating a Navigate action you have the "Simulate click" option. Some websites, like Amazon, require an actual click on the Next button in order to navigate. Just so that you know, this could have been done in the previous version by repl...
