Hello I have a yahoo shopping cart site that I am currently working on converting to a Magento site.  I am having to grab the product descritions as well as anything in the body of each of the product pages.  Is there anyone that has an automated way of doing this so that I don't have to copy and past each of the product page contents into Magento CMS pages?

Thanks,

Write your own little scraper man. The Simplest Spider In The World thread here will set you off.

Learn the technique, you'll not need to ask when, next month, your "source" is a different URL Wink
