    I am running an iMacros auto-like Script on webstagram (Mac and Chrome) to build an audience for my Gun Collecting Community "gun_collector."

    It works great, I have customized it to run 24 hours a day (Comcast loves it I have received 3 "One of your computers has a virus notices). Unfortunately I am only getting an increase in followers of about 150 per day.

    I DO NOT want to follow people as a way to get followers, I only follow those who actively engage in discussion.

    I tried to do an auto comment script that I could integrate with my like script, however I got stumped because you need to extract the picture ID to pass through with the comment. I am a novice and couldn't figure that out.

    The code i need to figure out how to extract from the page is Bold:

    TAG POS=1 TYPE=TEXTAREA ATTR=ID:textarea_284303442171879261_21586238 CONTENT=Nice<SP>Picture!
    TAG POS=1 TYPE=INPUT:IMAGE ATTR=ID:284303442171879261_21586238

    What can I use as code to extract the picture id from each tag position?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Chris

    What do you mean unlimited comments? I am trying to be somewhat selective in my commenting (Defining specific tags)

    You can't have my bots. Sorry :'(
    I'm not familiar with iMacros (I'm not really a fan of interpreted languages), but from what it sounds like you'll need to match the pattern with a regular expression.

    I did a quick google and found this: wiki.imacros.net/Regular_Expressions

    I guess it's implemented into the "SEARCH" function. If you could paste me the raw code you're trying to pull the values from I may be able to help you further.
