"Navigate Each" problem - page not going back

Post by johnnyo » Tue Jul 19, 2011 5:16 pm

I am trying to grab information from this running website:

http://www.runnersworld.com/cda/racefin ... -0,00.html

But when my program goes into the race page, I can't get it to go back and grab information from the next race.

Also, the site has pop-ups every time you click on something. I was trying to block these but don't know how. I don't know if this was affecting the scraping.

Here is my program.I appreciate any advice to point me in the right direction.

Thanks

Hi,

Turning the Simulate click option on in your Navigate Each seems to solve your problem. This is because these links use JavaScript to navigate to the details pages.

You can just ignore those popups. They won't affect the scraping.
