windows (Archived) A way to clip a web page automatically every time it changes (approx. weekly)

Recommended Posts

There is a website that posts a new article approx. every week. I'm trying to clip the page every time that it is updated with a new article.

 

Is there a way to automate the clipper, so that every new article is clipped automatically whenever it is posted?

TIA

Hi - welcome to the forums.  There used to be web pages around that would notify you if a watched URL changed,  and if they still exist you might be able to integrate that with IFTTT or something similar to trigger a snapshot of the page*.  I don't know of any way to get Evernote to do the clipping directly though - you might have to use some other app to do that,  and dump the result in an Import Folder,  which will create your note.

 

I haven't had any need to set anything similar up,  but a bit of intensive searching around may give you the tools for the job - if you do manage to get something working,  please share the details back here!

 

As an option you might consider setting  up a function to snap a web page once every month,  or two months or so,  to give you a timeline of changes.

 

* Web pages are created with so many different technologies now that I'll be impressed if this is still possible..

If that website has an RSS feed (most sites publishing articles do) this would be very easy to set up using IFTTT's Feed channel.
