    I have 1,000 spun cvs to html articles in a sub-folder I want to upload to a bb/Buddy Press forum, as 25 replies to each topic or post, and create a linear list of 1,000 pages side by side. Is there a plugin for that, or how can I use scrapebox? How do I do this?

    What about getting a custom bot for that ?

    Incredibly enough, there is no plugin for that, checked in a Google search, and the Wordpress people are stumped. With scrapebox you can "spam yourself", I don't know if WebHarvy has an uploader. I would gladly pay for the robot, so this should get more attention.

    Create a bot (or get one from HAF) and convert the csv to an sql script. Execute the script in your phpmyadmin and it's done :)

    Scrapebox isn't going to work for this. It only works with forms that are open, if registration is required then it won't work as scrapebox does not support authentication.

    further it won't work with a csv, although you could get them into .txt format probably just fine so thats not really an issue.

    I was spammed badly 4 years ago when I had bbPHP, 1,500 bots in one day, which is in Scrapebox as one of the vulnerable (no XML/CSS?) forums, set up with or without registration. If I use this to create my own uploader to my site, even though bbPHP is uncommon, wouldn't that be an alternative?

    Is it your site I assume? The have been some hype related plugins for WP but I think those were mainly for WP comments directly. You should be able to get a custom bot for this, if it's your own forum then no throttling etc. needed.

    If you're into code, you could build a function based on bp_activity_add(). You can find the documentation here. It works like wp_insert_post(), which is easier to find tutorials about.

    Sure maybe. I mean you could possibly use GSA SER or Xrumer etc... for other forums that require registration as well.

    Thanks, Loopline. The caviat is that even though you are uploading CSV files converted to text for bbPHP through ScrapeBox, which is still superior to GSA and Xumer, bbPHP will get wiped out by robots. The solution is https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-ultimate-csv-importer/, a guy named Stephen figured it out on bbPress forum two years ago, the plugin has been around for a while (csv to forum, topics, and replies, breaks the files up into three).

    Makes sense. I mean Scrapebox is Awesome to be sure, but I agree I don't think its perhaps the most ideal for this application.

    I designed my own scraper with a PHP recursive http_get to access 60,000 records from a non-profit search engine database in 2004 (the same year, I built a merger just like in Scrapebox for Google AdWords, Google got rid of spreadsheets the next day). Google claims to index 500 pages every 3 days for new websites, each new domain, with 0 Pagerank, then 500/day with Pagerank>=1. This is powerful as the 99.99% of named individuals, their professions and/or their businesses, who are not well known, look up or others look up that information, corresponding to a seed keyword or "near me" connection probably several times a month. With a new domain/website a day, that's at least 3 million impressions a month, and probably hundreds of thousands of visits that accumulate over time.

    There is a need for recaptchas and captcha libraries to index Web pages with OCR robots that will post text to visible text fields, and hit "Post" or synonyms for similar words, to create a MLM sale's pitch, to Facebook, PBN's, Symposium, etc.
