Advice Needed

Post by tipud » Sat Aug 13, 2011 10:15 am

I am a newbie just checking Helium Scrape.
The site i want to scrape has a list when you search.
When you click on a link it opens in a new window.
When i try to open within Helium Scrape it opens the page in internet explorer.

How do i get HS to open within its browser to tell it what to scrape ?

I am using the trial version - which may not be fully equipped.

Thank you for help

if this is not javascript, using a Navigate or Navigate Each action without using the Simulate Click option should open it on the current window since these actions read the destination URL and loads it on the current window.

If it is javascript, there is usually a way to read the target URL and load it with some code. If you wish send me a sample URL and I´ll take a look at it.
