Skip a link

Post by tonymcmanusrec » Wed Aug 27, 2014 12:28 pm

I would like to scarp information from a site where the information is uaully in the same format. However occasionally the info appears differently and I would like Helium scraper to simply bypass this page. When I run the process helium scraper stops on the problem page and will not move past it.

Any ideas how I get it to move onto the next link?

What you can do is use the If / While premade at File -> Online Premades. Create a kind that selects an element that only exists on a page you want to extract, and set the If / While premate to run the extraction actions only if this element is found.
