Issue with Extraction Wizard

by hagchr on Tue May 06, 2014 5:43 am

Normally when I use the Extract Wizard (Text) on links it does not click on the link but extracts the text. Recently I noticed that for youtube videos, when I use the Wizard (Text) on the title links it now clicks on them. You can still set up the extract but it gets more messy as you manually have to go back to the page you want to extract from.

Eg. try to use the Extract Wizard (Text) on the title link of the first video under

http://www.youtube.com/user/CNN/videos

(I am using the Enterprise version 10.00.2738)

Any updates on this (issue from 2014)?

Eg. try to use the Extract Wizard (Text) on the title link of the first video under:
http://www.youtube.com/user/CNN/videos

It extracts the link text correctly but also clicks on the link which means you need to close the wizard, click back, then continue, somewhat messy.

For this site, if you try the first link, then the wizard works correctly:

Sorry hagchr, this has been stuck in the update backlog. We haven't gotten any other complaints/reports about it so the priority remains low. I'll bring it up again with the development team to see if I can get any movement on it.
