    i finally realized the potential with macros so i got imacros for firefox.

    my first set of macros are strictly used for social bookmarking. i have a list of the top 30 sites and have set up 15 so far. each site has an individual macro that fills out all info and submits it. its pretty much 99% automated unless theres a captcha.

    heres where im stuck: i need help linking these macros. i want to one run script that will launch all my macros so they can do their thing in separate tabs.

    if you can help, i will provide you with my social bookmarking macros.

    thanks!

    Imacros has two great resources for help.... Their wiki (hxxp://wiki.imacros.net/Main_Page) and a forum where the devs frequently answer questions (hxxp://forum.iopus.com/)

    Now having said that I am afraid that according to the devs, there is no way for a macro to run other macros. I'm in the same boat as you and wanting to run multiple ones. Two options that I have come up with.

    1: You can enter in the following line at the beginning of your macro
    SET !ERRORIGNORE YES
    This will have it skip any errors and go to the next line. This is what I am doing and the idea is that if a site changes anything that would break the macro it just keeps going on to the next line until it hits something it can do, preferebly going to a new URL for the next site.

    2: They have said that you can create a .bat file or compiled exe I believe that will do each one. That requires the full paid version. A separate program that triggers macros will probably be in order and what rufus is getting at.

    The firefox version is quite limited, think you're gonna need the scripting edition of Imacros (it was in the downloads section on here)

    I use an excel spreadsheet with all my proxies and other variables in, then just press a button that runs a VBA script to call the imacros using the data in the spreadsheet. Any extracted data is then outputted back to the Spreadsheet.

    every macro has a unique url, it's in edit-share macro, you can use that with firefox openurl option with a new-tab argument

    Read this
    http://wiki.imacros.net/iimPlay%28%29

    In the http://wiki.imacros.net/iMacros_for_Firefox built-in http://wiki.imacros.net/iMacros_for_Firefox#Javascript_Scripting_Interface you have the option to add the relative path to the iimPlay command. Example: If your Javascript (JS) file is in the main directory, but the macros are in the "test1" subdirectory, then please use iimPlay ("test1/yourmacro"). (Note: This feature will be added to the general Scripting Interface in the near future, too.)


    So your JS code will look like:


    iimPlay ("test1/yourmacro")


    For example to extract a value from a website and then execute your code if the returned value is greater than 1:

    iret = iimPlay("test1/retrievevalue.iim");
    if ( iimGetLastExtract() > 1 )
    {iret = iimPlay("test1/yourmacro.iim");
    }



    Also to have your macro open a new tab and then switch to it and open a site:

    TAB OPEN
    TAB T=2
    URL GOTO=http://www.NewTabSite.com

    The easy way is to build a master iMacro and copy the ones you want in sequence. Put a couple of '>>>>>>> as dividers and stick a couple of PAUSES in there if you need to stop for captchas or whatever.

    If you have the scripting version (found here) it's not that hard to string a few together. You'll be starting with a text file and chaning it a ".bat" file. This will change it into a mini application which can be run and controlled in the application scheduler area of Windoze.

    An example of a .bat file is this:

    echo Start Go To Yahoo imacro
    "C:\Program Files\iMacros\imacros.exe" -macro GoToYahoo
    "C:\Program Files\iMacros\imacros.exe" -macro GoToGoog
    echo Done!

    GoToYahoo was an iMacro and GoToGoog was another iMacro that I created. These ran together when I launched the .bat file. This is all explained in an encryptic manner on the iOpus site.

    I managed to figured this out a month ago and got it to work once for a test. If you guys start asking me questions I'll just go "I dunno, I'm on a Mac right now"

    Anyone interested in the iMacros video tutorial site that I started to build, but kind of lost interest in temporarily? I can put the videos that I created online somewhere.

    I think copying all ya macros into one single macro will be easy to go and faster than each in different tab since each site as a captcha to be filled so if you are entering captcha manualy it will be easy if u have all macros in one.
