WP Scraper


Migrating A Website Has Never Been Easier

Easily copy pages of content with images from your old website and create your own WordPress pages and posts.

Most of the web migration software available is hard to use and needs advanced knowledge. WP Scraper makes it simple with an easy to use visual interface on your WordPress site.

  • Visual interface for selecting content.
  • No need to know CSS selectors.
  • Images are imported to your media library.
  • Simply add your url and start grabbing content.
  • Automatically populate the featured image, title, tags, and categories.
  • Save as draft, post, or page.
  • Strip unwanted css, iframes, and/or videos from content
  • Remove links from the content.
  • Post to a selected category.

Two Pro Versions Available

The WP Scraper Pro version lets you scrape 100’s of pages at a time with the Multiple Scrape, or on a set schedule with the Auto Scraper. The Pro version is also packed with extra features to remove ads during import, filter content, and even an upgraded url selection. Please visit http://www.wpscraper.com/ for more information.

The WP Live Scraper provides a shortcode that can be used in any post or page and will automatically refresh scraped content with a recurring cron schedule. This can be used for events, ratings, reviews, scores, prices and so much more! Please visit http://www.wplivescraper.com/ for more information.

This is one of my favourite plugins, it saves me hours of work where I normally migrate pages the old cut and paste way. This is a massive time saver. Not sure why some have said it doesn’t work, it does and I have scraped hundreds of pages.

This is a great plugin and it helped me in solving a few complicated problems in a client’s website. I, however, had to make a few minor adjustments to suit our purpose. One change that I had to do was add a redirect to the post edit page after saving the scraped content in single scrape mode. It’ll be great if the author considers this as a feature request. Thanks.

This isn’t a bad plugin – per-say! (you don’t say?) I cannot give it a full 5 star review, but it does derive (it), especially for what it tries to achieve. In use, in your admin backend on the purpose build scrape screen, you select the target web-page to (scrap), grab the title, grab the content: then save, but you can only save it as a (Post) – Not a (Page!) Which then necessitates converting it, but at least the image links get dragged over and saved properly. The advert at the bottom isn’t welcome, which then necessitates yet more editing. Now, I’m moving hosts and sites soon, and I am looking at dragging over only half of my content. Cloning is gonna be hard work, this could do it, but the Post -> Page means that it’s a pain. This feature is no doubt in the Pro version, but I don’t know. As I say, this Plugin ain’t half bad, but fiddly to use: especially if you’ve got a hundred or so Pages to go through. If you’ve got the time, then fire it up. Hope it helps.

I recently had an issue with the Live Scraper not functioning on one of my sites. I wrote to the plugin owner, and almost immediately, I received a reply from Robert, one of the partners. He was extremely courteous and he followed through with several emails back and forth, all within a short period of time. This challenging issue was resolved very quickly, and now, I have happy clients. I have used the WP Live Scraper plugin for several months now, and found it to be extremely easy to use with no issues other than the one I described above which turned out to be nothing more than CSS code.
