I am a new member to WebmasterWorld so this is officially my first post!
I am attempting to login to a website automatically using login credentials which I have done successfully as here: <html> <head> <title>Auto-Login to www.mysite.com</title> </head> <body onLoad="document.frmlogin.submit();"> <form name="frmlogin" id="frmloginid" method="POST" action="https://www.mysite.com/login.asp" enctype="application/x-www-form-urlencoded"> <input type="hidden" name="username" value="MYUSERNAMEHERE"> <input type="hidden" name="password" value="MYPASSWORDHERE"> </form> </body> </html>
Now comes the tricky part I can't figure out - what I need to do is go from this successful login > Auto-Navigate to another page within my Account Area > Then Auto Submit another form. I should note... I am not trying to do anything dodgy here - I just want to automate an action I must take everyday so I dont have to worry about it.
I don't know where to start or even if the above is the correct first step - If anyone can offer any suggestions or solutions that would be fantastic!

It's not my site, but rather a business I am a member of and have my user/pw to login to my account area. I am required everyday to login, and submit a form, confirming I have taken an action (which is posting an ad). What I want to do is automate this - so "AutoLogin>NavigateToFormPage>SubmitForm".
The POST ACTION for the login form is .ASP as that is what they use on their site.
Haha, Dare I answer? Simple, I'm no expert and that did the auto-login for me which is my first step. As I mentioned Im not 100% sure If I am going about this the right way - so open to suggestions. I was thinking maybe I need to look at cURL to accomplish this? But again, any suggestions/examples on how I do that would be great.
