Auto log-on to multiple sites

  AlanHo 16:28 10 Mar 2006

Is there any way of using a macro - or other ploy - to log onto three or more URL's in rotation for a set time each.

I want to use Internet Explorer or Mozilla to log onto a web site, then after a set interval (say 15 seconds) log onto a second site, then a third before going back to the original site ad infinitum until I manually stop the process.

If you use IE7 (Beta) you can set multiple home pages then click the different tabs as and when you like.

Flicking between browser pages like that only views each page from the computer temp files as originally downloaded - the page may have changed by then.

I want to literally log onto each web site in turn to ensure I am looking at the latest data.

Opera allows mutiple tabs and you can refresh each page (manually) as often as you like and they are in real time not from a cache. I have Opera open with about 15 tabs, it loads each in turn and I can move from tab to tab as I like. It has a setting for 'start the same as last time' or you can save specific 'sessions' and reload these as and when you want.

Unless I misunderstand you - your method still requires manual clicking on the tabs.

I am looking for a way of using a piece of software - or a macro - that will log onto several web sites in turn for a set time each.

I guess the limited response to this thread is an indication that it is a difficult - if not impossible - problem

Thanks for trying anyway.
