    I get a lot of "no engine matches" messages. What does this mean?

    It means that either your list or the URLs you are scraping do not match the platforms you currently have selected for the active project.

    no engine matches is a normal message.

    Think of a platform like Wordpress as an engine. Say you import 100 URL's you scraped from the search engine and none of those URL's are wordpress, all of them would say no engine matches.

    The way to fix it would be to try and improve your footprints so you're scraping more Wordpress blogs or just add in a bigger list and you're bound to find some targets.

    Is there any place where all this information is documented and broken down or I am doomed to search the forums ever 1-10 minutes?
