    I have a imacro set up that allows me to add my link to about 20 bookmarks.. everything is working fine only that I have e.g {{!COL2}} which calls the info on my csv sheet
    The only problem is that the imacro is not posting this information, it is leaving it blank.

    e.g
    Code:
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:TEXT FORM=NAME:thisform ATTR=ID:tags CONTENT={{!COL7}}
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA FORM=NAME:thisform ATTR=ID:bodytext CONTENT={{!COL6}}
    This is how i'm using it.. any ideas on why it is not posting the info on the 2.0 sites?

    Your csv might be fine. Your macro might be wrong.
    Imacros scan the page and try to find the point where they submit your details.
    For example, site A might have
    Type:input: text form :name
    While the second might be
    Type:input: text form :your name*
    They are different and it will not work.
    Record the macros for each bookmark website seperately and test them too.

    Apart from that, make sure that you have defined how many columns your file has.

    it should be right, it's from a paid service thing..

    might be better to just pay someone $4 :)

    Hey there,

    First of all check out the csv file. If it's okay (meaning have at least 7 columns) then you should check the script itself.

    Try to record the macro for the site youself, and then replace the sample values you entered while recording with the corresponding values in the columns, e.g. {{!COL1}}, {{!COL2}} ... etc

    If you wish, you can post more information here, and it's quite possible to get this fixed for free...


    Regards,
    Mr.Profit

    Its hard to explain what might be wrong in your macro since we know not much about the websites you want to use but we might be able to help you if you post more information:)

    My first thought would be to check the .csv file. Is it in the right format? Does the macro work with at least one of the sites?

    Well if you did that using excel, it's QUITE possible that it doesn't saved the file as it should.

    Try opening the file with Notepad++ (or similar) and check out if it is in fact separated by commas.

    Also, check out if your content has comma in it, as this would make the file with more columns that it originally should have.

    And as me and others said, if you really need this fixed you should post at least samples of the macro and the csv, because we're shooting in the dark right now ...
