How would you have Price Comparison Pro update the prices automatically in the background without having users visit each page to actually refresh the prices? I noticed there is a Scraping Interval in the "Import" section of the plugin, however I have not been able to get it to work properly (or I just don't know how). The interval section is currently set to 1 day and the cache is set to 48 hours (or 2 days), but I have yet to see it keep those prices up to date or it may not be configured correctly on my end.

With that, is there a way to clear the scraping queue? I accidentally hit rescrape all, and now there are thousands of links in the queue but no way to get rid of them without sitting on the page and waiting for it to clear down.

Any help on this would be appreciated!

Make sure you have a cron job running on your server to process the queue. If you only have the WordPress cron set up then this relies on visits to your site in order to run. A real cron job is preferable.
