[My Name 1,20]

[My Name 2,23]

Sorry for the My Poor English

Note : Have more content than this on remote page.

How to solve:

Use CURL to read the remote URL to fetch the HTML.

$url = "";
$curl = curl_init($url);
$output = curl_exec($curl);

Then use PHP’s DOM object model to parse the HTML.

For example to fetch all <h1> tags from the source,

$DOM = new DOMDocument;
$DOM->loadHTML( $output);

//get all H1
$items = $DOM->getElementsByTagName('h1');

//display all H1 text
 for ($i = 0; $i < $items->length; $i++)
        echo $items->item($i)->nodeValue . "<br/>";
