"PDF Not Opening" Error

Ask questions relating to GrabzIt's Web Scraper Tool. Such as how to use the web scraper and API to extract data from web pages, images or PDF documents.

Hello - after downloading an entire website and unzipping the result, I get an error message when opening any of the pdf files that were downloaded in the process. These pdfs are coming directly from the download, ie they are not the result of converting the website to pdf. Can you help? 


Update: I found out that the pdf files that were downloaded and named with the usual ".pdf" extension work fine when changing the extension to ".html" and opening them in the browser.

Sorry about this. We have fixed the issue, reset your allowance and started the scrape again.
