crawl web and get links data with macro

I want to get data from google policies in many languages.
I am using  crawl web operator which points to the greek language policies.
I am setting the language as label and filtering to get only the url's which contain policies.
So i end up with an exampleset that has all url's for greek policies.
What i want to achieve is to get all data from these policies and get them in one file.
I found that "get page" operator works perfect for what i want but it is only for one url.
The "get pages" operator has a problem with utf-8 encoding and gives me wrong output.
So i tried a macro to loop for the exampleset i have.
But i cann't figure out exactly how a macro works and the process never compiles.
This is my xml code:

    Hi @crazy_m1ner!

     

    Below you find the updated XML for your process. There were some small problems. For one, the execution order was wrong, so the Get Page operator was executed before the test macro was created. Also, the output of Get Page was connected to the example set port of the Loop Examples, which produced another error. Now it works. :)

    It does work 
    But the html output code is still wrong encoded
    Even when i try another language i still get wrong encoded html
    I get the same output as get pages operator(in terms of encoding)

    Hi @crazy_m1ner,

     

    The Get Page operator has the parameter "override enconding". You can enable it and select UTF-8, and then you will have the right encoding.

     

    If you use UTF-8 frequently, you can also set the default encoding of RapidMiner to UTF-8 in Settings -> Preferences -> General -> Encoding.

     

    Regards,

    Sebastian
