Hey fella we all started somewhere, well done :)
Excellent work, that may come in useful for others too, could be worth posting on DevArt.

I've been trying to do this but with info from my PSN profile with no luck at all!

The page I've been trying to pull information from is http://us.playstation.com/publictrophy/index.htm?onlinename=parry101

I've tried everything as described in the link a few posts up but nothing is displayed.

Looks good to me! Now you are addicted. The first one was free... ;-)

I'm afraid this site might be difficult to get. The actual information is displayed in an HTML frame that is called by javascript, and the frame cannot be loaded separately on it's own as far as I can tell. So there is really no way for WebParser to get the info using the url above, and if I put in the url to the frame page http://us.playstation.com/playstation/psn/profiles/parry101 It redirects to a sony playstation front page.
