I want to make a PHP script to archive a thread at another forum (it's over 50 pages), but in order to view the thread, you have to be logged in to the site.

Is there any way I can log in remotely from my own site, so I can run the script from my site's server?

Just figure out the variable names in the site you want to log into ie the form field names of the un and pw. then as you go there pass your username and password along in your script.

Hey it just might work
