The engine analyzes the HTML files crawled from web forums, deduces the wrapper (template) of the pages and extracts the information about posts (e.g., author, title, content, number of replies and views, etc.).

We discuss the system architecture of the extraction engine in the context of a forum search engine and present various components in the extraction engine. We also introduce briefly the extraction process and discuss some implementation issues. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.3.1 [Information Storage and Retrieval]: Content Analysis xing - abstracting methods. General Terms Algorithms.
