    I know there are zillions of threads about iMacro scripts etc. but I'm not going to ask for someone to write it for me.

    I'm no expert but I can figure it out and make it myself. I just need some expert-level help from someone who has been using them for much longer.

    Making a script to like photos was a piece of cake and I found no problems on making it by myself in less than a minute.

    What I'm trying to do now is commenting on random photos and that's where I'm stuck.

    The problem with commenting is that it's always stuck with the specific link for the specific photo and that's not what I want. I need some RANDOMNESS (or whatever you wanna call it).

    Is there a command on iMacro to do a specific action on a random object? Not sure if I'm explaining myself correctly so let me give you an example of what I want to achieve.

    I want to open a certain set of images (let's say the latest images with hashtag #girl) and that I want to make a pre-written comment on one of those photos. So I want to input a comment on a blank space next to the image. I can do that but the comment is 'stuck' with the link of that picture and the next time I run the script it will comment on the SAME picture again which, again, is not what I want.

    I hope you get the picture now :)

    Liking is much easier as the thumbnails are always in the same place and you can easily like random photos by setting the proper parameters. You can even play smart and choose the X & Y parameters. But when the layout is for commenting the blank spaces (for writing comments) are always in different areas and I can't figure out how to solve this puzzle.

    I know there are again million of scripts out there (even for free) but I don't like using someone's else work but instead wanna do it by myself with your help.

    Maybe then some more people will get inspired on actually trying/doing something on their own instead of begging everywhere for scripts/bots/whatever.

    Thanks a lot in advance,

    That is an example to use Random in imacro:

    SET !VAR1 EVAL("var randomNumber=Math.floor(Math.random()*10 + 1); randomNumber;")
    WAIT SECONDS={{!var1}}

    The code above is random numbers between 1 to 10...

    well... Do you need strictly iMacro?
    you can write a simple code to comment randomly always into the blank spaces without errors.
    Just try image detection function. I use macro scheduler and macro recorder with great results..

    PM if you need help. i really like using those software to automate and mimic human events ;)
