    HELLO i'm wanting to create my own forum leacher using visual basic 08. Basicly i want to create a program to pull topics and posts off download forums and copy them to my forum hosted at smfnew the program needs to be able to login to the forum which i want to leech and copy topics i choose using the web address while at the same time login to my forum at smfnew and put the posts copied into the forum board i choose using that web address. It needs to regonise basic bbcoding such as [code*][/code] tags. it does'nt have to be anything special just needs to copy one topic to the other.

    you'll need to do a bit of coding to leech
    autologin-->sendrequest-->getdocument--extract info

    err ok then the process of trnsferring the posts is manualMean you should click a button or something?)
    for vb.net the easiest would ve to have a web browser control then access page elements (but you can use webrequest to get the content then use the same method)

    and if you like you can use a php script to leech then customize it to send the results to your app
    ny or method not going to be easy but not soo hard
