New Feature: Correct and *Concatenate* Multi-Page Articles

Our Article API automatically joins multiple-page articles into a single “text” or “html” field.

On some sites though our algorithm is unable to concatenate for various reasons (typically non-standard pagination design convention). Furthermore, any site with an overridden “text” field (via a Custom API rule) will no longer automatically concatenate multiple pages.

nextPage

We’re happy to introduce an oft-requested fix for this. From now on, if you create a ‘nextPage’ rule in our Custom API Toolkit (developer login required) we will automatically follow the specified link specified — and any subsequent links, up to ten pages — and concatenate into a single result. Moreover, you’ll only be charged for a single API call.

For more information check out our overview in Diffbot Support, or have a go in our Custom API Toolkit.
