    Hi J,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    For the challenges of varying descriptions, dimensions, types and tabs, as long as you can find the fixed related element, like the text "Description", "Shipping" as the image below shows, we can modify the XPath by following this tutorial:

    How to associate data with nearby text?



    As for "Templates are located in more than one spot on the page.", you might need to come up with the proper XPath to locate all the correct data fields via multiple pages, to learn more about XPath, please check:

    What is XPath and how to use it in Octoparse

    If you need help with modifying XPath for certain fields, feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
