Hello @neao18!


Can you please give more details? Which site are you talking about? Is the information that you want to retrieve public or private(you need an user and a pass to log in to see it)? Does that site have an API that you can use? For example, here is the do.com API which you can use to make REST calls for whatever info you want to retrieve from that site: https://developers.do.com/


If it's got an API then the solution is clear: you'll need some custom apex code that makes the HTTP callouts. Start here: http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/apexcode/Content/apex_classes_restful_http_httprequest.htm


As I've said, it all depends on the specifics of the task- more or less: what site? :)
