【Smart Mode】How to choose page type and pagination
Abstract：This tutorial mainly introduces how to set the page type and paging conditions in smart mode. No Programming Needed. Visual Operation.
In Smart Mode, ScrapeStorm will recognize by list-type by default. If you enter a single-page type, a recognition error will occur at this time; or for other reasons, even for list-type pages, intelligent recognition has a bias(we will always optimize the intelligent recognition function). At this point you can manually select the page type and set the pagination to help the software recognize the correct result.
