I’ve toyed around for an hour or so, watched tutorials, and checked out the Plugin tutorial on Macdrifter and I cannot seem to grok quite how to accomplish either of my use cases.
I’m a wine enthusiast and when I someone mentions a wine I’d like to run some (very different) kinds of investigations:
Search for tasting notes on that wine (i.e. text string) on a few sites:
a. Cellartracker has a specific URL pattern for Tasting Notes that takes the wine string (with +)
b. Wineberserkers has a posting pattern that starts with "TN: " and the wine string
Search for places that sell the wine to get to their pages: this a a list of about 20 sites, some have pattern driven search engines, but I want the search results page… really cool would be if I could even ID that there’s actually a dollar sign somewhere on that page visible to the rendered page (looking for $36.99 where I don’t know the 36.99 yet).
So I’ve created search sets based on crawl and zero results are returned for something very common. When I change it to search, I get results from wikipedia and no, I don’t have ANY other plugins selected and no link follow.
I’m guessing I’m just messing up on some basic concepts here. Can someone point me to a decent overview of how to accomplish what I’m looking for?
