Hello dear expert-exchange expers,

I am trying to do something with cURL and php. I will shortly tell you what my script does.

Script can login to destination with cookie
Script can fill the form datas on destination
Script cannot submit the form because of javascript.

The code on the destination is below ;



Can someone tell me how can I do post action with curl ?

Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks
<span id="subButton" class="jsButton"><span class="first-child">

		<a href="javascript:document.storyForm.submit();">Publish</a>

		</span></span>
 
 

//////////////////////////////////////// and for action is ///////////////////////////////////////
 

<form enctype="multipart/form-data" method="post" action="/post/url/" name="storyForm">

If you are using Firefox, I highly recommend the addon "Tamper Data"
This allows you to see POST and GET info, as well as destination, User Agents, Hosts, Cookies etc. etc.

Post action with cURL as follows, just remember to change the post fields to match that of the site you want to POST to:



<?PHP

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);		

curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, "username=USERNAME&password=PASSWORD&rememberme=TRUE");

?>

Hello dear expersts,

Thank you for your comments.

@cdaugustin

I took a look that web site. I couldn't figure it out how would I configure that to my script.

@DanielBlaze

I am using Live Http Header which is like Tamper Data but it does not show the post action. The problem is that I am trying to post javascript.

The javasciprt submit code like ;
javascript:document.storyForm.submit();

You could see javascript action on first message.

I would be really so glad if someone help me out.

Thanks anyway who tried to help me.

regards,

cURL cannot interpret Javascript on it's own, but if you know what the Javascript is doing, you can probably work around it.

Try installing tamper data and submitting the form like you usually do manually. See what is being POSTed and where to. Then you can simply use the cURL code I gave you above to bypass the javascript and continue like normal

I think you need a wrapper around cURL.  Like suggested using php or perl or even shellscript.  Sounds like other user is helping you.  Thought I throw that in anyway.
