    I use iMacros for FireFox to automate things. Basically what I need to do is play multiple macros in a row. They are all long separate sets of iMacros. So I need a code like this:

    run macro 1
    run macro 2
    run macro 3

    Each macro has about 1000 lines, not sure if it matters and I do not want to combine these macros together. Thanks!

    Why don't you just compile them into a single macro?

    Use javascript.

    Lookup basic javascript syntax and iimplay().

    Too much to explain, I just do not want to.

    Thanks but not the answer I was looking for. Is there not a way to make a script for iMacros for FireFox to execute this?

    Could you try to clarify what you want to do?

    From your OP it sounds like you want to be able to run a lot of iMacros scripts sequentially by just running one iMacros script. In which case you could run a javascript file through iMacros which is just a list like:
    iimPlay("Macro1");
    iimPlay("Macro2");
    iimPlay("Macro3");
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 2

    That is exactly what I want to do. I just tried it out (replacing the macro names) and it did not work. What am I missing here? And THANK YOU for taking the time out to help me!

    OP, you should not use iimPlay inside an iim file. Instead create a JS file to control the flow of your macros. Shoot me your skype, I'll do it for you :)

    Cheers.

    When creating the new script to play them all did you change the extension from .iim to .js?

    Nope, but I just tried that as well and nothing. Is what you wrote previously all I need to write the script? Thanks!

    That should be all you need to write in the file. Are the macros in a subfolder? If so you need iimPlay("subfolder/macro1")
