Latest Inquiries - Data Extraction Software

website has changed and now shows "Loading" for most data tables

Submitted: 3/12/2017

Hi guys.

I have a project I've run on a website for many years and just today started having problems with it. It appears they updated their website and I can't fiugure out the problem.

http://www.basketball-reference.com/leagues/NBA_2017.html 

The web page now shows "Loading" for many tables beyond the first tables on the page, and VWR can no longer display the tables further down the page so I can extract data from them. I've tried messing around with the javascript options in Advanced settings, but with no luck.

How have they changed the site that most of the data tables on the page can't be loaded by VWR?

Thank you.

I don't know that I've ever ever set the emulation. Just checking where I can set that?

I should have googled before asking. Found the setting in Tools > Web browser emulation. Thank you.

Hi,

I see nothing wrong with the site. See attached.

Please make sure your Web Browser Emulation is set to IE11.
