Required: scraping with images off

Post by blakeyuk » Fri Dec 20, 2013 11:47 pm


I know there have been a few posts about this, but it would be great to be able to scrape with images turned off. The reason I'm asking is that there is one site I'm scraping where there a standard heirarchy:

1) Paginated summary data, listing 25 entries per page.
2) Detailed for each entry scraped.

I've got everything scraping correctly, but the detailed page has some advert on it which it taking FOREVER to load, and Helium waits until that's finished before kicking off the scrape of that page.

As a results, the process is SLOW.

Hope you could add this as a feature set.
