I want to scrap a website (http://pkjobvacancy.com/). Everytime a new article is posted on this website I want to copy the text and image of that post, and send me via email on my email address. Please someone give me script for this..
Thank you

Yep, very good, you can use iMacros for that... :idea:
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...

You don't need to be a Programmer to use iMacros and to do Click-Click-Click while recording your Actions... :roll:
I'm afraid nobody will be writing your Script for you, ah-ah...! The Community is here to help you if you really get stuck somewhere, but if you don't try anything at all yourself, your Thread sounds like a "Joke" on a Technical Forum...

Will be nice on your CV as well that you used iMacros as you seem to be looking for a Job from the name of your Site... :idea:

I don't know, I will have a look at your Site once you'll have posted your FCI (read my Sig...) and your Script to understand what you want to do...
