Is there a way to increase the timeout for a slow-to-respond website?

Submitted: 9/1/2017


     One of my projects tries to get data from a website that is typically slow to respond.  The site often will take a minute or more.

     It there an option in Visual Webripper to control how long the web browser waits after executing a Link Template before it decides to give up.  I would like to be able to tell it to wait at least a minute or two before it gives up.  If there is a place I can add a VB wait script to get this behavior that is fine too.

     Please let me know,

     Thank you!

Yes, VWR has that feature. In the command, click Edit then click Advance tab then find the Delay after completed downloads, see screenshot.

Best regards,
