    I need to make a specific bot that will do a few things for me. I have the following idea.

    Go to a specific site and log in.
    Upload a file from a file on my computer, never duplicating titles.
    Save the title and the link to the uploaded file.
    Go to another website and use the title to scrape and save an image of the title, and a description.
    Open (just guessing here) a portable software to create some slides using title, link, image, and description.
    Save file in specific format in said portable software.
    Go to another website and upload newly saved file and insert title, description, append link to the end of description, add title to tags.
    Save title and url from newly uploaded file for export in csv.
    Repeat until all the files in the original file on my computer are complete.
    Export final csv with title and url columns.

    All in one bot, single threaded, and that is pretty much it.

    I can learn to use uBot of course, but wondering if it is just cheaper to outsource it, and then make sure the person can update it if need be, or what not.

    Or if someone can code this in something else with a simple gui. If so, something that can be easily updated.

    if you are just creating one bot and don't plan to build any others outsource. If your planning on automating a lot of stuff then buy it. If you plan to multithread get the http plugin and learn it. Much better than the browser.

    Also remember if you outsource that ubot is often a entry level software for people looking to make bots because of this you need to make sure the person is experienced. I have seen many bad bots blamed on ubot platform that are actually down to the developer.

    Do you happen to have a reference of an experienced developer? My budget tops out at the price of the standard version. It sucks, but thems the brakes at the moment.

    I would look at it but i'm to busy at the min. If you want developers PM I will give you a couple of the guys names who are pretty good.
