 AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'xpath'
Dear Members,

I am very new to python. I am using the following code to extract the details of each product.

I am collecting product names from the original page and using each product link, I am collecting price, SKU, and frame information from the linked pages. However, I am getting an attribute error for the web-link command. One possible problem could be that the parsed link includes "".

I think the main problem is href="". The code would work if the link were href="/eyeglasses/fz1370"

Full python code:

import scrapy

class GlassSpider(scrapy.Spider):
    name = 'glass'
    allowed_domains = ['']
    start_urls = ['']

    def parse(self, response):
        names=response.xpath("//p[@class='pname col-sm-12']/a")
        for name in names:

            yield response.follow(url=link, callback=self.parse_glass, meta={'glass_name': name})

    def parse_glass(self, response):
        sku=response.xpath("//ul[@class='col-12 col-sm-6 default-content']/li[1]/text()").get()

            'glass_name': name,
            'price': price,
            'sku': sku,
            'frame': frame
I started working on python this week. I would highly appreciate if you can mention what specific change I should make to my codes to correct the attribute error
please always show complete and unmodified error traceback (in error tags) it contains valuable error debugging info.

on the previous line
you override name from the loop with the text. So on the next line (link=name.xpath(".//@href").get()) name is just a str. use something different as variable name, not name
Thank you Buran. I appreciate your help. The solution worked perfectly.
