URLs ZPID Format Requirement Limiting Run Results

Closed

When I input the results of the connected actor "Zillow Zipcode Scraper" into this Detail Scraper, it seems that some properties are not being scraped by the Detail Scraper. After further investigation, it seems that the Zipcode Scraper produces two types of URLs that the Detail Scraper then uses - ZPID types with the _zpid tag at the end and a regular type with no zpid tag at the end. When I try to rerun the actor on just the failed scraping properties (URLS which are all without the _zpid tag) Detail Scraper states that the format is incorrect. However, it seems that some Zillow listings do not have URLs with _zpid tags, and therefore our scraping is incomplete.

Hi Steve, I'll have this discussed with our delivery team. Would you please share a run link/ID, where you've encountered this so they could fully investigate this case? Thanks!

Hello Steve, our team has looked into your run a bit more and we believe adding this feature would make an excellent addition to this scraper. Unfortunately, it will require quite complex code update and it's hard to predict how long it will take us to implement it. I'm expecting roughly a month (given the complexity of the update and other priorities of our team), but I can give you a more precise timeline next week.

Happy to inform you that this feature has been recently implemented.
