    Ok.. this might be quite weird to understand.. bare with me..


    I need an application that'll basically do two things:

    1- Put in a forum post URL (will have to be able to login to the form as many forums don't let guest viewing) and output the post in bbcode format, so I just copy the code, replace the file urls with mine and repost.

    2- this is optional: put in a separate field, my new urls and replace them in the output text from 1.

    pm if you need more details if needed and your quotes..


    note: no macros please.. they tend to screw up.

    and no visual basic unless you're certain it'll work with vista 64 bits.

    It can be PHP as long as it parses everything I need.

    update..

    I need someone to write a php script that'll do this..

    Where I put in an url of a post and it outputs the bbcode...



    I know that I can manually copy the html and parse to bbcode, but I need it like this.

    form -> post url -> bbcode output
