    I am trying to read some text from a website, but can't seem to get HTML read to find it. I tried EasySetup and manual setup to no avail. Finally i just set the CSS selector to body to see what was showing up. Apparently the site is throwing a 308 redirect and HTML Read doesn't seem to know what to do with that. I don't know where the redirect is supposed to go, and I'm using the site's main URL as far as I know.

    Is there any way to get it to follow the redirect or maybe bypass it?

    I used this and it worked. Can you try?
    Code (Text):

        A1: AutoTools HTML Read [ Configuration:URL: http://www.bible.com/
    CSS Queries: .votd-verse
    Variable Names: verse
    Use Javascript: true
    Request Desktop Website: true Timeout (Seconds):60 ]
        A2: Flash [ Text:%verse Long:Off ]

    The mobile website loads perfectly on my phone with all the same classes, so I didn't think to try request desktop version. It takes about 5 times as long to load, but it does work this way. Thank you so much.
