Hello All,
I am using crawl web operation to fetch reviews of a specific movie in rapid miner. For this I am using a Loop Operator in the main process and inside loop am using macro and crawl web.

Loop -
Iterations: 74 (as 74 pages of reviews are there for http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454876/reviews?start=1)
Limit Time: Checked
Timeout: 60

Inside loop operatior, I have generate macro and log from input to output and in parallel crawl web connected to output.

Generate Macro -
Function Description: macro name - pagePos and functions expression - %{pagePos} + 10 (I have initialized this macro)

Crawl Web -
URL: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0454876/reviews?start=%{pagePos}
Crawling rules -
follow_link_with_matching_url - .+reviews.+
store with matching_url - .+reviews.+
write pages into file: checked
add pages as attribute: checked


When I run this process I get no observations in output. Please help me.
