Migrating A Website Has Never Been Easier

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.
