Basically, don't use a Regex: HTML is notorious for being difficult to process effectively if you treat it as text - it pretty much needs a browser engine to mostly render the page before it can be parsed effectively as it contains so many different ways to do anything.

Instead, I'd suggest you use an HTML parser (I use HTMLAgilityPack[^] in C#, but your language may need a different one) and scrape the sites that way - it's a lot easier to work with, and a whole load easier to change when the site admin alters the format, which happens a lot as features are added, removed, modified, or bugs are fixed.
Doing it with a regex means it might work for a week, and then fail - and then the whole regex has to be re-written, re-tested, fixed, and released.
