Crawling and storing onclick element data

Hi, I was wondering if you could help with this page:
http://www.hockeyligan.se/elitserien-arena/38238/live/
specifically, I would like to store the data under the tab marked "Sammanfattning" but cannot get Rapidminer to crawl to the data.

Have you tried the web extension? Do you have a specific problem? Can you share the process you have already used?

Re: Crawling and storing onclick element data

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

I'm currently using Crawl Web and follow_link_with_matching_URL to arrive at the
http://www.hockeyligan.se/elitserien-arena/38238/live/
page.
When I attempt to use store_with_matching_URL on the page, the data contained in the tabs is not stored, only the data in the margins.

When I inspect element, it shows the data in the tabs as list items where the data is generated by the onclick event.
Not sure how to capture that data from that event.

Re: Crawling and storing onclick element data

Hmmm, it seems that this page does some crazy javascript magic to load the content after the page is loaded and since our crawler does not execute javascript inside a page, you are not getting your content.

The only way to get the content is to check which URLs the page is calling to get their content and try to crawl this pages which typically deliver their data in the JSON format. The developer tools of chrome (or any other network tool) could be useful to monitor the network traffic.
