Extract URLs and then perform a task on the URL

Post by garys100 » Wed Feb 11, 2009 11:33 pm

I am a newbie and I tried to dig around to see if I could fine the answer myself. I apologize if I this is posted elsewhere.

I access a page that dynamically builds a list of users. It shows me the users info as URLs I can click. I tried making a simple macro, but when the user list grows, it does not grow with it.

I am looking to extract the URLs that match my structure for example mysite.com/page.aspx?userid=######. I want to "open" each of these URLs and post a status update into the record. The post function is easy, I can see how that works from a macro. However, I have not been able to find the proper extract syntax to either extract the entire URL or extract the userID and then use the values gathered in my post sequence.

Thanks in advance.

iimSet("userid", x)

URL GOTO=mysite.com/page.aspx?userid={{x}}

Not sure it will help, let me know anything else is required
