Hookup in Scraping

Filed under: Jobcentre Plus Database Mirror — Martin Sullivan @ 9:00 am

Jobseekers Direct has changed its interface over the weekend, with some of the underlying technology undergoing some kind of refresh too. All of this, needless to say, broke the scrapers which feed the JCP Mirror database and ultimately the FTP, e-mail, RSS and ‘591’ services and so forth. It also broke the Jobseekers Direct redirection system, which uses a kind of mini-scrape system too. All should be up and running again, now. If you encounter problems, please do let us know.
