Hi

If you go to this website using this url
http://www.checkgfw.com/?#baidu.com
then it will auto filled the form with "baidu.com"
I will then need to click the SUBMIT button then I will have this result
" ¿¿,¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿"
I need to click the submit button every hour, is there a way that I can go to a url ( i can upload a script to my website) or a google chrome extention that help me to check every hour (by clicking on the submit button and notify me if there is a changes. I will use a google chrome extension to auto detect for changes)
Thanks

They have the site set up so that you can't load it in an iframe or post to the page from somewhere outside of their servers.

A chrome extension might be possible, but I'm not familiar with writing one of those. You could, however, do something with Javascript. checkgfw.com is running jQuery.

1. In Chrome go to http://www.checkgfw.com/?#baidu.com
2. Right click on the page and choose "Inspect Element"
3. In the tools that come up, choose Console. You may have to expand the tools to be able to see it.
4. Use the following Javascript in the console

setInterval(function(){$('#submit').click()},3600000);

Open in new window


This will wait an hour and then click the submit button every hour.

Doesn't look like it ran at all. Did you hit enter? That is what runs the code.
