I try to scrape this site by Selenium.

I want to click on the "Next Page" button, for this I do:


it works for many pages but not for all, I got this error

WebDriverException: Message: Element is not clickable at point (918, 13). Other element would receive the click: <div class="linkAuchan"></div>

always for this page

I read this question

and I tried this


el = driver.find_element_by_class_name('pagination-r')

action = webdriver.common.action_chains.ActionChains(driver)

action.move_to_element_with_offset(el, 918, 13)


but I got the same error

There are 3 possible solutions for this: 

1. Use Actions() method

WebElement element = driver.findElement(By("element_path"));

Actions actions = new Actions(driver);


2. Before the click is performed let the page load completely using Waits 

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlywait(15 TimeUnit.seconds)

3. Because of a Spinner/Overlay on top of it, the element is not clickable:

By loadingImage ="loading image ID");

WebDriverWait wait = new WebDriverWait(driver, timeOutInSeconds);


Hope this helps!
