    I've got a list of vBulletin forum links which I've put in the link extractor addon and set it to extract internal links containing "rss".

    It gathers some rss links from SOME pages, but for some pages it shows 0 rss links gathered, even though when I manually check that page source, it DOES contain a link containing "rss" in it.

    If you want to give some example pages that would be helpful. But scrapebox won't execute scripts such as javascript. So if the links are produced by javascript then scrapebox can't see them.

    Also if they are terribly malformated (which I have seen) then it may miss them.

    It doesn't matter anymore, I ended up using the custom grabber to get all links containing "rss".

    It works much better this way.
