View Full Version : Need help auto-selecting values in form

06-19-2012, 08:09 PM
My Javascript sucks. I'm a PHP programmer. I'm frequently going to this site:


It requires that I choose a city and store first before redirecting me. I'm using this site multiple times daily and the form is in javascript. Is there a way to automatically input a the city and store so that I don't have to do it manually every time? Can someone point me in the right direction?

Most modern browsers have the option of remembering this information for you. Otherwise, it's (usually) up to the developer to use something like cookies to remember that information.

I'm using PHP cURL though - not a browser. I ended using a FF addon to extract my cookies as a text file. I was then able to post the cookies using cURL to get the data. I just have to figure out how to extend the expiry but this is a good temporary solution.
