In the setting of the scraping task, it is often encountered that the webpage does not have a page turning button or the website cannot turn the page by clicking the next page button. At this time, we can use flowchart mode of ScrapeStorm to turn pages by entering page numbers in batches.
1. Create a new task

1) Set the component to batch input page numbers
Click the page number input box and enter the page number in the operation tips.

Then select “Single text list“.
Then enter the page number to be set in the popup. For example “1”, “2” and “3”.
Click “OK” and the software will automatically generate a loop component that populates the page number.
Then click the “Go” button on the page, select “Click the element” in the operation tips, jump to the corresponding web page and generate the click component.
2) Extract the list data
After the page number loop is set, we set to extract the list data, click the field on the web page, and select “Extract all elements in the list” in the operation tips.
The software will automatically detect the paging. This task does not need to set automatic paging, so select “No, extract only the current webpage”.
The scraping field can then be set on this basis.
