I have not used the spider in awhile, *but* from what I remember, it could spider *anything*. The problem was the output and complexity of getting the "rules" set up. You didn't have to hack it, just set up the proper rules.

Read the manual, and look at the examples. I don't have the spider set up on any site any more, to check.

If you look at the rules, you can see how you can pick the different areas to scan, what to scan, and such. It does take time to figure out though.

From my experience with using the Spider plugin, it caches the entire page into the database.
