I have use Navigate URL's , urls's imported into database but nothing etc.. The application navigate all URL's perfectly but extract only the information from the first URL .

How will look the Actions Tree in order to extract all information from all links . I mention that All links have information structured identic and the links have the follow structure :

http://www.xxxxx.com/profile.php?id=1

Hi,

I've just added this FAQ's post. Please follow the steps described on the "My project is not extracting any / enough data." section. Let me know if anything is not 100% clear.

Thanks webmaster ,

But this is not helping me so much . The problem is that i do not know how to construct the Actions Tree :
I want something like :
- parse first url > extract data
- parse second url > extract data
- parse third url > extract data

I don't know what i need to use > Extracting and then Navigate URL's or using links into a database .....

Could you please help me with that .hsp template example ? please

Dana

You're probably putting the Extract action after the Navigate URLs one, while it should be a children of it. To add it as a children, select the Navigate URLs action, the right click and select New Action -> Extract.

Yes, you should be able to attach files in a reply. Or you could use a service such as this one.
