Default Program to make forum posts.


Newbie here so please don't post complicated responses.

I am making a program to post things in a certain format on an invisionpb powered forum. What I need is a method of how to post the body of the message, which includes BBcode. Is this possible? I sniffed the POST inquiry and this is what came up:

POST Statement: http://****.com/ipb/index.php?act=post&do=new_post&f=4

The message was Title "Test", with an underline "Test" in the body, and "Test" in quotes. I'm completely lost here, as this is beyond my knowledge, can anyone help me? BTW, being a noobie, I use a simple wrapper instead of winsock or such, so if possible please explain how I would POST this with a wrapper.

Hi,

I'm at a bit of a loss trying to understand why you'd want to automate posting to a Forum, something that is 'naturally' interactive. Perhaps you could enlighten me.

Regards
Doug

The reason is that I have a forum where all the posts are made in the same layout. It would be much easier to just fill out text boxes than to remake the layout each time.
