Table extraction ... Can't select the table

Hello, I'm trying to extract the data from a table on a website, but I can't get the wizard to highlight the correct part. The website is http:\\www.poloniex.com and the table is the 'Markets' table to the far right of the page. Would someone be able to have a look at this and see what I'm doing wro...

Re: Adding minutes to !NOW

That worked just fine. Some durations are over 60 mins, but not very often.

I'd like to say "Thank you".

Re: Adding minutes to !NOW

I've looked again at the above page.

I was thinking to use a prompt to ask for the amount of time to add on.

The prompt works and a variable is set, but still not able to add the variable to the time.

I then thought about subtracting the variable from the time, that didn't work either.

Re: Adding minutes to !NOW

I have looked at that wiki entry. When I see all the symbols and words I get confused, I'm sure when you know what they mean it's just a case of translating the code so it says "get the time and add this value to it, oh and by the way the value is 20 minutes".

Adding minutes to !NOW

Hi,

I'd like to be able to use the !NOW command, but add 20 minutes to the time.

What would be the correct syntax for this?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Opening sites in new tabs

Thankyou so much for the information you have so far provided. Would you be so kind to write the script for me? It is very cheeky of me to ask. I've understand the logic of what you are saying but when it comes to the creating I just can't do it, I get "lost" with all the different symbols and the s...

Re: Opening sites in new tabs

Thank you very much for the long reply, loads to go on. I've scan read your reply and will digest more at work tomorrow, but to answer the "if there is an easier way" comment, I had a suspicion that imacros could handle the whole thing in one script, and would be keen to take that route, but I was k...

Re: Opening sites in new tabs

Great thanks for the help. I'm now a stage further and would like help with the next part. It may be better if I explain the whole thing.

Opening sites in new tabs

Hi All,

What I'm trying to do is by using a list of sites have imacros read the list and open a new tab in each list. Would someone be kind enough to let me know the script that can get this done?

Many thanks.

Re: Finding text and Highlighting it

Thanks for your 2ct's worth. I think that javascript is also the way ahead, but to be honest my skills are at the "copy code, paste it in and if it works great, if not find another bit of code and paste that in" (bet that doesn't win me any friends). I found this ... function highlight(container,wha...

Finding text and Highlighting it

Hi,

What code would I need to use to have iMacro search a page for some text, then if the text is found edit the html source code so that the found text is wrapped around a highlight tag.

I have iMacros for Firefox, Hazel and Automator/Applescript to use.

Thanks for any pointers.
