Are there any plans for this to operate as a local (rather than network-based) service at any stage?
And also, can I point to a page that isn’t being captured for me, for some reason? theguardian.com/technology/ … a-and-iran - what’s throwing me a little here is that capturing it as a PDF or even Webarchive is capturing an entirely blank page, with just a single link at the top.
Due to the way websites can be constructed and content delivered, the clutter-free option won’t work with every site.
Thank you for letting us know. We’ll have a look as soon as we work on the decluttering service next.
Thank You, Jim and Eric.
It usually does a remarkable job of capture, and I appreciate what an incredibly difficult task it does - that link surprised me as usually Guardian captures are perfect. Perhaps that URL uses a different template Ming model, but I found it odd that all the capture encapsulation approaches gave pretty much the same results odd, which is why I flagged it up here.
Capture is the main function that sold me on DT - it is a remarkable and brilliantly implemented feature.
Thanks for the kind words. Developing clipping technologies is a bit like “Achilles and the Tortoise" but it’s something we will be revisiting in the future, as time permits. Cheers!
We have updated our decluttering service now and it loads the Guardian page as expected (minus a broken image but that seems to be related to the way they embed pictures).
