WebGrabber – WordPress HTML Scraping Plugin (Utilities)

WebGrabber is a WordPress plugin that helps you automatically get HTML from a web page and display it on your blog post/page. The main benefit of using this plugin is that it grabs fresh data from the source whenever you open your page so your data always remains up-to-date. It’s especially useful when your source is frequently updated like stock quotes, news, prices, rankings, etc.


Can I grab HTML from multiple pages and display them on one blog post?

No, you can grab HTML only from one URL per post/page, but you can grab multiple elements from the same page by defining more css selectors (separating them with a comma: #id , .class , p)

How can I get the entire page of a website?

If you want to grab the entire page of a website just leave the optional “HTML element” field empty.


WebGrabber cannot grab the following types of content:

Videos: YouTube, Vimeo, and most other video sharing websites.

Flash: The contents of flash files (the flash file itself can be retrieved).

Content Visible Only to Registered Users: Profile page, inbox, etc.

JavaScript Generated HTML: Content that is generated using AJAX, Angular.js, or other JavaScript techniques can’t be retrieved. You can check if a page uses these techniques by disabling JavaScript in your browser. If you can still see the content then you can scrape that page.

Note that if the html you want to grab contains images with relative paths, they won’t show up on your page.
