I'm new to Awasu and trying to setup a web scrape for the site http://www.dubaicustoms.gov.ae/en/Pages/default.aspx. I've downloaded the WebScrape plugin and just need some guidance how setup the ini file. Any help is much appreciated!

What information do you want to extract from the page?

The WebScrape plugin uses regular expressions to extract the information of interest from a page. There are examples in the wiki page, and the ZIP file comes with a help file, but you need to know how regular expressions work.

I want to extract any changes to the website. I'm new to this and will read up on regular expressions, but if its easy for someone that knows what their doing, I would be much appreciative for some guidance. :)

This plugin tells you if a page has changed, although not what's changed, which is not quite as good as WebScrape, but a lot easier if you're new to regular expressions.
