Linkedin comments (click not working)

by djeedjee on Mon Nov 16, 2015 3:57 am

Hi,

In Linkedin groups, there are many comments in a discussion. I want to open all the comments at once so I can read faster. When I click on "See previous comments" it loads 10 or so at a time.

I just installed iMacro on Firefox (Win 7) and I was able to record the macro but it only keeps reloading the same 10 comments and not going to the older ones.

VERSION BUILD=8940826 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
URL GOTO=https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/102696-6021748319758356483?trk=groups-post-b-all-cmnts
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments

Also as there are multiple discussions in a group, do I need to create a new iMacro for each discussion (since the URL is different)?

thanks,
djee

FCIM...! :mrgreen:
=> iMacros for FF v8.9.4, FF42...?, Win7.

If you include the URL, you need to repeat the Click on the 'See<SP>previous<SP>comments' several times in the same Macro like this (and you'll need one Macro per URL...):
Code: Select all
VERSION BUILD=8940826 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
URL GOTO=https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/102696-6021748319758356483?trk=groups-post-b-all-cmnts
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
WAIT SECONDS=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
WAIT SECONDS=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
WAIT SECONDS=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
WAIT SECONDS=1
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
'etc...

Or you open your Discussions manually and you can loop your Macro without the URL for each Discussion:
Code: Select all
VERSION BUILD=8940826 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
'URL GOTO=https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/102696-6021748319758356483?trk=groups-post-b-all-cmnts
TAG POS=1 TYPE=SPAN ATTR=TXT:See<SP>previous<SP>comments
WAIT SECONDS=1

Or you could already open manually let's say 5 Discussions in 5 different Tabs and you could create a Macro that will click 5 times on 'See<SP>previous<SP>comments' for each Tab:
Code: Select all
VERSION BUILD=8940826 RECORDER=FX
SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
SET !TIMEOUT_STEP 1

TAB T=1
'URL GOTO=https://www.linkedin.com/grp/post/102696-6021748319758356483?trk=groups-post-b-all-cmnts

And you launch your Macro from the first Discussion...

Thanks, it worked! And yes i'm using Firefox 42.

Now I tried the same thing to expand all the "show more" links on the home page but that didn't work. Here's the code I tried, kindly advise. I also clicked on Play (Loop) in iMacro but that didn't help.

VERSION BUILD=8940826 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
TAG POS=3 TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:…<SP>show<SP>more
WAIT SECONDS=1

OK, good to hear and Thanks for confirming FF42, always mention your FCI when opening a new Thread, I don't react otherwise...

"didn't work" + "didn't help" is always vague... :roll:

But I see a "POS=3" for the '... show more' Button, meaning there are already a "POS=1" and "POS=2" Buttons before the one you clicked/recorded, and I'm not sure it will remain at "POS=3" for the next Run if you want to loop that Macro, you may have to adjust with "POS=4" etc... that you'll either have to hard-code or you can play with "POS={{!LOOP}}"...

Re: Linkedin comments (click not working)

I'm posting for a second time, because I don't see my other post and probably something went wrong.
=> iMacros for FF v 9.0.3, FF 51.0.1 (32 bit), Win7 (64 bit)

I need help too also with the same thing - I want to expand all the "show more" links on the comments under a post in LinkedIn on the home page.
I tried with the same code but I didn't succeed and I am not sure what exactly am I doing wrong.
These are my actions as steps:
- I enter the LinkedIn page with the particular post (and comments) in the browser and load it
- I then click on the iMacros icon
- I click on tab "REC" and click on "Record", after that on Stop
- Then I go on tab "Manage" and Edit Macro and add " TAG POS={{!LOOP}} TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:…<SP>Show<SP>more
WAIT SECONDS=1" to the code so the whole code becomes:
"VERSION BUILD=9030808 RECORDER=FX
TAB T=1
TAG POS={{!LOOP}} TYPE=BUTTON ATTR=TXT:…<SP>Show<SP>more
WAIT SECONDS=1
URL GOTO=https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/digital-marketing-plan-..(etc - the whole page url)"
- Then click on save and then on Play Loop as I also enter on Repeat Macro Current 1, Max 16000, because there are about 16000 comments
And..nothing happens, I mean there is an error msg. which says "element BUTTON specified by TXT:…<SP>Show<SP>more was not found, line: 3 (Error code: -921)"

I will be very very thankful if you could help me because I obviously don't do the right things.. :cry:

Nothing had "gone wrong", your first Post(s) needed Approval by a Mod..., and I'm not always on the Forum, ah-ah...!
(I've kept only your 2nd Post to avoid Duplicates...)

From which URL do you start (looping) your Macro...?

And the 'URL GOTO' at the end of your Script is probably not "correct"/necessary as if it is the same URL like your Start-URL, this Statement should anyway be placed at the beginning of the Macro rather than at the end, but loading this Page again for each Loop makes your Macro start all over again from the beginning and not continue from the previous Loop...

Hi, thanks for your quick reply.
This is the URL that with the post that I want to see all the comments as once, on the same page:
https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/digital- ... title-like
So I removed the "URL GOTO" line from the code but I still can't make it right. So if we just forget that I have tried to do anything at all, can you tell me what should I do in my case in order to see all the comments as once on the same page so that I don't have to click the "Show more" button again and again? :?
Please Please Please help
