    (Semi-)automated text analysis - netnography
  1. Hello, I am a PhD and use NVivo for netnography (online ethnography) of forums. NVivo is great and so is Ncapture. However: Sugestion 1: ncapture enable to capture only 1 page at a time while some of the posts I work with can be 30 pages long. It would save me a lot of time if I could type in/ provide the URLs to Nvivo and the software would download all the pages I type in. I am not necessarily talking about thousands of pages - but a few dozens would help me a lot - and probably many other people working with online forums. Suggestion 2: when I capture several pages of a same thread, I need to fusion the pages into one pdf before I start coding my source. This requires to 1. import the webpages captured in ncapture format in nvivo 2. export the webpages as pdfs 3. merge the pdfs with a small app 4. import the merged pdf into nvivo. Again, that is quite type consuming and disheartening. I have not found any other solution and it would be great if you could create an "import multiple pages" and a "merge ncapture sources" functionality. Best, sibaiorb
  2. Hi everyone, Regarding merging pdfs, its appears that small apps were created which enable to do that. I am now personally using one called "Pdfs split and merge" However, I still don't know how to ask NCapture to download and print as pdfs all 14 pages of 1 thread at once. Anybody has an idea ?
  3. Hi everyone, I am currently analysing an online forum as part of my research and NCapture should prove to be very helpful in this regard. However, there are 2 issues which I am not sure NCapture answers: - Is it possible to merge several pdfs created by NCapture into one? Indeed, discussions on the forum analysed run over several pages and I would need to have all posts from a same thread registered in NViVo as 1 single Source. - Is it possible to capture several pages at once? I have 100 threads to analyse and each of them is 14 pages long. That will make me repeat the same procedure 1400 times if I capture pages one at a time... I'm pretty sure most researcher working primarily on website have asked themselves the same question and I am wondering how they answered them. Anybody has an idea? Wish you all a great day! Olivier
