Hi, I have problem with evaluating XPath with query. When I use this in xpath_tester script:
URL: http://www.seznam.cz
XPath: //*[@id='gadget-6']/div/div/h3/span[1]
Works fine, but this:
URL: http://www.seznam.cz
XPath: //*[@id='gadget-1']/div/div/div/div/table/tbody/tr[1]/td/div/div/strong/a
Result: "ERROR 2: No result!", because there are no items in $nodeList
I'm 100% sure XPath is OK. (using XPath checker extension for firefox)

Here is code of xpath_tester.php:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <title>XPath tester</title>
    </head>
    <body>
        <?php
            if (isset($_POST['xpath']) && isset($_POST['url'])) {
                $url = $_POST['url'];
                $xpath = $_POST['xpath'];

                $doc = new DOMDocument();
                @$doc->loadHTMLFile($url);
                $xp = new DOMXPath($doc);
                $nodeList = $xp->query($xpath);
                if ($nodeList != FALSE) {
                    if ($nodeList->length > 0) {
                        $node = $nodeList->item(0);
                        echo $node->textContent;
                    } else {
                        echo "ERROR 2: No result!";             
                    }
                } else {
                    echo "ERROR 1!";
                }

            } else {
                $url = "";
                $xpath = "";
            }
            
            echo '
            <form action="xpath_tester.php" method="post">
                <label for="url">URL</label><input type="text" name="url" size="100" value="'.$url.'" /><br />
                <label for="xpath">XPath</label><input type="text" name="xpath" size="100" value="'.$xpath.'" /><br />
                <input type="submit" value="OK" />
            </form>';
        ?>

    </body>
</html>
