    Been messing around in ubot for 2 days now trying to figure this out.. but the ajax element script is killing me. I am trying to expose the URL of each of my followers and export it to a text so i can easily manipulate it. I am able to scrape the user names.. but some are unicode and all jacked up looking.

    Anybody know an easy way to export the urls of all your pinterest followers manually pulling the info from each?

    Thanks

    Usernames or emails? I used one recently posted facebook email scraper method here using inspect elements (console) to get pinterest usernames. It works with pinterest to get usernames.

    For scraping the usernames, the following php script worked for me:

    <?php

    $url = 'your pinterest followers url goes here';

    preg_match_all('/"username": "(.*?)"/', file_get_contents($url), $user);

    $i = 1;

    while ($i <= count($user[1])-1){
    echo $user[1][$i].'<br>';
    $i++;
    }

    ?>

    Using Ubot, you should have the "http GET plugin", and use that to grab the data. Using the browser will always give you the troubles you are experiencing.
