Tagged with html, include, jquery

This plugin allows you to include HTML scraped from a different website. The part to include can be specified by a jQuery-like expression. To prevent abuse all HTML is purified against malicious code and only whitelisted URLs can be scraped.


A CosmoCode Plugin

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.


All URLs that should be scrapable have to be defined through a regular expression in the config.


The general syntax is:

{{scrape>url query|title}}
  • url is the URL of the website you want to scrape. It must be matched by the regular expression given in the config.
  • query is the jQuery like query to select a page element on the given website. See the phpQuery manual for the available selectors. When you end your query with a ~ the innerHTML of the match will be used, otherwise the matched wrapping element itself will be part of the output. When no query is given, body ~ is used.
  • title is only used when your query matched the URL of an image file. In that case the image will be embedded and the given title be added. You can leave out the title.

FIXME examples should be added
