Canada changed one of the form field names in their submit form. They also changed the name of the form from "addurl" to "addurl2". The field that changed is where the URL goes and it was previously named "addurl" also.

If you open your engine.ini file in your "user" folder inside wherever you have dumptruck installed, you will find the engine.ini file there.

The submit string fires off ok, but for some reason I get a "bad request" error reported by dumptruck. But I can past the URL string into a browser, and Canada reports adding the URL successfully. I'm lost... I emailed dumptruck about the situation. Maybe somebody else sees something I am missing?
Below is the submit information I changed to in engine.ini

Submit=http://www.canada.com/search/web/addurl.asp?addurl2=[URL]&email=[EMAIL]&todo=add

Yeah, I had a Dumptruck already loaded, so for some reason firing off another one, didn't pick up the change in the submit line to the "addurl2"..

When I fired off a fresh one by itself, it works fine....

The thing about dumptruck and the like is they do a GET request to Canada (and others) which receives a POST when someone fills out the form manually. It seems to work, but would be easy to screen against.

I got auto submission failures two days last week. I never took the time to investigate, but it seems to be working today. I wonder if they were toying with referral strings like Anzwers? Anyone else notice that?
