Pagetty has a very simple purpose - it allows anyone to create their own RSS feeds for web sites that do not provide their own.In order to create a feed you just need to specify the URL of the page you want to follow, define a set of rules that specify how the content should be extracted (scraped) and you are good to go.
You do need to have some basic HTML and CSS skills define the necessary content scraping rules as they are based on standard CSS selectors. To get you started, we have prepared this tutrial and set up some sample definitions that you can browse on the "Define content" tab.
All rules that you define in the "Define content" screen have the following syntax:
ul#articles liand so on. More complex selectors like nth-child and attribute selectors are also supported.
When you configure your feed you need to define at least the following required fields on the "Define content screen": a) URL b) Item selector c) Title selector d) Target URL selector. These selectors produce the minimum amount of data to generate a RSS feed.
Note: The item selector works in context of the entire HTML page, all other selectors work in context of a single content item.
Below the feed settings a content preview of the feed is always shown. This shows you how the selectors you have defined work in real time and allow you to expermint and test different selector configurations easily.
After you have set up the content definition and can see a expected result in the preview area, open the "Configure & Save" tab, specify a name for the feed, your e-mail address and hit "Save". An RSS feed will be generated and the according subscription URL will be sent to you via e-mail. You can also edit the feeds you have created - the edit link is contained in your e-mail notification as well.
