Post Count Increase... vbulletin...?

Post by centurion » Mon Jan 10, 2011 9:01 pm

Hi, I need to make an iMacro that will automatically write posts into a vBulletin board. For my final year project my website needs to be tested for performance and spam. Therefore i need to make a macro which will automatically post to increase the post count of a user.

How can i do this?

Hi,

Have you seen our tutorials here? I recommend starting with the "Recording" tutorial. Just record the action that you want to automate with iMacros and play it as many times as you like.

Should you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to contact us again.

Best regards,

Hi thats fine, i know how to do that, but the setup in my vBulletin checks for duplicate posts so therefore i need to be able to write a different message in the post every time.
I assume i need to write a "loop" of some sort, to maybe pad a number on the end each time?

Any ideas, also is it ok for me to put these forum posts in my final year project to prove that i sourced external advice etc... ?

Hi,

Yes, you could use the loop variable if you're using looping, or you could insert the current time stamp or even generate a random number (requires the use of scripting interface). See also this topic for reference.

Sure, absolutely!
