Spider & grab remote content as Joomla articles

Written by

Do you use Joomla? Do you wish you could get loads of great content - from anywhere on the web?

Welcome to NetSukii.

We designed NetSukii to grab web content remotely from literally any internet source.

Want to start your own news channel? Try the power of NetSukii with your favourite online newspaper.

Think it'd be cool to run a reviews site? Point NetSukii at a great reviews site, sit back, and let the content build.

Need to migrate your dynamic website to Joomla? Tell NetSukii where your site is, grab your content, and you're good to go.

From remote website to Joomla article in 3...2...1...

NetSukii is intelligent. Once you tell it the site you want to import, it'll go and spider it, to discover all available pages. Spidering usually takes around 3 seconds per page, or faster if the remote server will handle it.

Once the spidering's complete you can use the inbuilt filter to select the pages you want to import, or if you prefer, just import them individually.

Each remote page is grabbed, complete with images and related downloads, and saved as a complete, native Joomla article.

It just doesn't get easier than that.

More! More!

Ok, it does get easier than that.

Because NetSukii has template detection.

If you don't want to import the entire page, along with the original menus and framework, you don't have to. NetSukii's inbuilt template detection system will allow you to select exactly which content you want to keep, and which you want to throw out.

This way NetSukii will simply lift the content you want to keep, leaving behind any old menus and headers.

Want to find out how it works? Read on.

Your friendly web spider

NetSukii is a content spider. Just give it a website, click a button and the spider will automatically find all the pages it can.

Each page only takes around 3 seconds to process. In that time, the NetSukii spider will discover initial information about each page found, such as the content encoding, page title and metatags.

And if you want to import just one particular page, you can also just click the 'Add Url' button to add an individual page.

Seconds matter

NetSukii imports each new article in just seconds.

But NetSukii doesn't only grab the content.

It also imports the images, metatags, clips out the content, converts everything to UTF-8 encoding for optimal Joomla integration and saves it as native Joomla articles.

Queue the import engine and NetSukii will work 'hands free', leaving you time for the things that really matter.

Get selective

NetSukii has awesome template detection.

Just tell it which content you want to keep, and it'll discard the old menus, headers, footers, styles - anything you want to leave behind from the original site.

You can even select multiple content areas, and it'll meld them together. The inbuilt W3C validation engine will make sure your pages are valid HTML and can integrate correctly with your Joomla framework.

So buy it today! Look at everything that's included:

  • Scan, spider and import any remote website
  • Set it and forget it - automated spidering available
  • Import each new page as a native Joomla! article
  • Automatically set the article title, alias, keywords and description from metatags

Hi Barnaby,
we have documentation stored within Atlassian Confluence v.5.4.3 running on internal servers on HTTPS. Our goal is to mirror the content on public Joomla site.
So we have some structure on Confluence and slightly different structure on Joomla site. We have mapping between those.
Is this synchronisation achievable with NetSukii?
Can NetSukii access html + pictures and other article attachments managed by Atlassian Confluence and create articles based on the content?
Can I import article by article manually selecting target destination?
Can be already imported articles updated by NetSukii?

Let me add one detail. To access the content you have to log in (username + password) - entry field before import is just fine (we can use LDAP or local users).

Is demo available to get a feeling from the tool?

Hi there,

Thank you for your email.

If you have the files stored as HTML files on your server, I would recommend HTML 2 Articles, since it might be faster and easier to use.

NetSukii would need to be installed on a Joomla system that had access to your internal server, so you would need to set your firewall rules accordingly.

So long as the content is HTML based, and can be read by a browser, it can also be read by NetSukii.

You can import pages one by one as individual articles, or use a bulk import.

Previously imported articles will be re-imported as a new article. For best results, you'd have to delete any old articles first.

Unfortunately I had to delete the demo because it was abused by other internet users, but for that reason I offer a full money back guarantee with this product.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Yes absolutely, it will correctly understand the content and convert it to Joomla articles, and will correctly manage all accents and charsets.

I just wanted to drop by and say thank you Barnaby for all your help with my Netsukii purchase and taking the time out of your day to help me with my own site and migrating data over. Netsukii is incredibly intuitive, the site I am migrating content over from is a troublesome site that is very restrictive and is somewhat of a mess and hard to get content to come over. So Barnaby jumped in and helped me move some content, he even modified Netsukii a tad to accommodate the special things that were going on with my old site where the content was coming from. Long story short the hosting on my old site is very restrictive and proprietary, and Barnaby did some work arounds and now I have have a method of getting my content over to our new Joomla site just the way we want it. If you purchase Netsukii, it will work, with out a doubt, it will work, Barnaby will make sure of that!
Customer service from Barnaby is incredible, just keep in mind if you are in the states, he is 8 hrs ahead of us here on the west coast, so he may be sleeping while you are looking for answers! Be patient, he gets back to your inquiries immediately as he is able, in other words, if he is not sleeping, he's working!
Thank you Barnaby for the excellent product, this was one of the best investments I have made for our new site, I'd do it again in a heart beat.

Can you import a list of URLs in Net Sukii?

Also, can you schedule Net Sukii to perform automatic updates to articles if you are accessing data from other dynamic websites?

Reply to Scott Carter

Barnaby Dixon

January 17, 2014 - 17:29

Hi Scott

Thank you for your question.

NetSukii works as a spider, so it discovers pages automatically. And although you can add new URLs one at a time, unfortunately you can't import a list of URLs in bulk directly. However, you could potentially set up a new remote site profile, and then import your URLs to the database using PHPMyAdmin.

Once an article is imported, you can then go back to the profile and re-import it, to reflect any changes but this cannot be done automatically, since it's not possible for NetSukii to know when a remote article has been changed. However, once you have your profile set up, you could simply just 'Import All' on a periodic basis, to ensure that any changes are reflected on your Joomla system.

All the best, Barnaby Dixon

Sorry for this rating, but so far the extension doesn't work at all. Half the pages I go to give a 404 error, the ones I can make a project from spider only 1 page. I have tried every conceivable configuration with no luck. Please help!

Hi there Kevin

Thanks for your email. Most likely either: your server is refusing outgoing connections, or else: the remote server is refusing automated connections.

Could you set me up with an admin login and I'll try and work it out? Also please let me know a few of the sites you're trying to import and I'll check them remotely.

Thanks & all the best

Thanks for the reply. It's able to grab 1 page and I tested it on a site where it grabbed more than 1, just not a site I care about. So I don't think it is on my side.

The site I really want is

I am trying to download speeches. When I do it at this level it just times out. If i go a level down
I just get 1 page. The actual speeches are in a different directory and that may be the problem. But any higher directory to start the spider and it times out.

Your help is truly appreciated.

Thank you for the information.

This is quite a tricky one, as they use rather complex URL rewriting. But it's very much possible to do.

Firstly, please add the main URL as your profile:

Then, before you run the spider at all, click 'Add URL'.

Enter the page you actually want to spider: briefing-room/speeches-and-remarks/

Make sure you add the trailing / since it's in essence a 'directory' not a 'page'.

Then, save the new URL, and spider just that one URL, by clicking the small ladybug icon in the spider column. This will spider all links in that one page, and nothing else.

Then, use the filter to select only the links that have 'the-press-office' as part of their URL. Then "Select All" and click "Import All".

Job done :-)

I hope that helps. Sorry it's somewhat complex. An important part of NetSukii functionality is that it will only spider and import URLs lower than the main URL - so if your site is it can't then spider and import from which is why you couldn't spider any pages.

Hope that makes sense! Good luck & all the best - Barnaby Dixon

Unbelievably wonderful experience with this product, and with the developer. NetSuki just works, easily and perfectly. Thanks again, Barnaby.

Can you do this?

My client has Joomla 1.0.15 site and want to migrate into Joomla 2.5.
I have already set up Joomla 2.5.

The issue is content pages with pictures and links.

There are several categories needed to import articles from Joomla 1.0.15 site.

Can Net Sukii solve the issue?

Thanks in advance for your reply

Hi there,

NetSukii can certainly import your content with images but it will be easier to simply migrate firstly to Joomla 1.5 and then to 2.5 using Migrate Me, which will help maintain your current categories, links and menus, and should be an easier upgrade route.

All the best Barnaby Dixon

netsukii is amazing. I'm working on a portal page. this page parse news via rss. but not all of our members have rss implemented, the older ones even run static websites.
so i would like netsukii to parse special urls via cronjob and check if there are any modifications since the last run. and i need a backlink on the bottom of the parsed content.
so you collect ideas, maybe yout are interessted in this one.

How can I spider a website automatically and import the contents/Articals automatically without logging in every time.
I am talking about the, "* Set it and forget it - automated spidering available" that you talked about.

Your help is appreciated.

Hi Moe,

Please just click the 'Spider' button in the main toolbar. Joomla will log out after x minutes depending on your server config, but the spider will continue, and you will be able to see the results as they happen.

I would like to create a site where the front end would be like this>, where I did not need to create articles but only index the web's best articles, links and options to enjoy and send Facebook, Twitter and Google + ...
Is there any way to get this with some of yours components ?

NetSukii can grab articles and web content remotely. You'll still need to set up the stylesheets and template so that the content displays as per this remote site.

I have version 2.1. Could you tell me what has been changed in version 2.1.2?


Reply to scott

Barnaby Dixon

July 30, 2013 - 11:52

Hi Scott,

We just made a few small general bug fixes. If you see a big upgrade number (e.g. 2.1.2 to 3.0.0) or a moderate upgrade number (e.g. 2.1.2 to 2.2.0) it's worth upgrading as these could be major bug or security fixes, or functionality changes, but otherwise so long as your system is working well you don't need to upgrade for the smaller fixes.

Help! I'm using NetSukii and I'm having trouble with it. It doesn't seem to handle https: sites. If I don't specifiy https: in the "Which site do you want to import?" screen and the site is set up to redirect to to https then NetSukii errors out.

Also, will NetSukii fail to follow links if there is a "no robots" directive in robots.txt? I can't seem to get it to go past the home page of the site I want to spider.

Hi Scott,

Thanks - I'll make sure we can add the https:// as well as the http:// and release it in a new version.

NetSukii doesn't pay any attention to the robots.txt file, but let me know the URL you're trying to spider (you can email me direct at support at and I'll try to find out if there's any issues with the spider or the remote URL.

April 10, 2013 - 17:22

Hi there Donny,

Thank you for your question. Yes, your links are not changed at all during import. You can then use a component such as SH404Sef to ensure that Joomla converts your old links to the new Joomla article references in a beautified form (e.g. yourlink.html). Each imported article uses your original page name as the new Joomla alias, so that old links can be maintained if required.

Just wanted to leave positive feedback. I worked out that this would save me about 4 weeks of work so I took the plunge, and it was totally worth it. Pretty rare that a product delivers so well on its promise. Thanks, John.


February 28, 2013 - 08:43

What a great idea. I used netsukii to scan my three websites and convert them into one single Joomla website. It was very good. The old websites were very big, more than 1000 pages in total and it was all done in almost no time at all. I basically just copied my old stylesheets into the new Joomla stylesheets to preserve the layouts and then just had to build the menus, I used the automatic categories feature so I didn't have to do much else. A+ from me. Ben

Just had to say this was brilliant. I don't usually leave any reviews, but this was well worth the money. This transferred all my old pages in about 30 minutes tops. Thanks!

Yes - for example, you just type and it'll be able to spider the full site, and optionally import all the pages it finds (you can import all pages, or individual pages). If you want to import just a subdirectory, enter, for example,
