I am completely satisified with Ubot. I had a terrible time getting the software installed and the videos downloaded due to only having the availability of dial up. However, there is nothing that can not be over come if you make up your mind to do so.

So I am asking for some help. I am just not getting it. I want to create a classified ad submitter but just don't know where to start.

I have choosed the urls I want to post to,looked at the different sign up pages, a lot of the information is similar but then there are the odd balls as well.

It would seem that I need to create a form with the like information, then put exceptions for the different information.

After I create the form then whre do I go from there?

Or, does someone has a similar bot that I can go through the steps to see how it is done. I know if I can get a couple of these done that it will sink into my "Hard" head.

Thank You All

Hey Fran, you asked you will then receive! I'll PM you and give you a hand. To be honest, I've offered a hand to many already but very few take me up on it.

Terminator, just pop over to my website, www.ubotjunkie.com and check out the videos... not as good as terminator (I"ll be back), but hey, I have a limited budget! ;)

I think when we work hard then we get depression and get out of our patience and feel furious with little things. We must conserve our personality and stay calm with the people we don't like. I thin patience is one thing which can change your personality and steps towards success.

Yep. That is right. Ubot is really powerful, indeed. I have searched about it and have seen one doing URL scraping with it. This is an awesome software to have.

I know this article is like a year old, but so very true. I bought ubot years ago, and let it sit on the shelf for almost a year. Why? Because I failed at my first few attempts.. Never fully gave up though.

After taking a basic programming course, which helped me to understand basic terminology, including the importance of pseudocoding your ideas on paper, I felt that i had a better understanding of how this thing really works.

Do yourself a big favor, and spend a couple bucks on a instructor led course.. You will thank yourself later. Ubot3 is still powerful as ever, and once UBot4 is fully completed and bugless.. Its going to rock out.

So if anyone is reading this, and feels like ubot is too difficult, just treat it like your other IM businesses. Hang in there and make it work. Failure is never an option, just a delay.

Great post, great advice! Thanks!

There probably as many rant posts here as there is question and answer posts regarding ubot.

Give yourself time and permission to make mistakes when learning how to program with ubot. Truly it's a pretty powerful little package shortcutting a difficult job - automating web pages.

I've personally tried and purchased several programs that promised this feat, but ubot is the only one close to full delivery!

Here's the rub for you though. You have to learn rudimentary programming. There's no way around it. You will come in at a particular level of 'expertise' and that's where you start. Some will know less then nothing and other's will have written highly complexed programs in the past.

It really doesn't matter. What does matter is you give yourself permission and time to make mistakes! Yes, second time said. Here's my personal recommendation.

The tutorials that are here, and if you search youtube, I've put a few up. Step through them. Be a monkey at the mouse. Just follow along. Make mistakes. Change things around. Start to understand what the heck is going on.

Little by little, it will come. Will it be frustrating? YES! Can you get through it and make some pretty snazzy bots? YES!

Whenever you get stuck, don't be afraid to ask a question here. The ubot team and the community of users here are extremely helpful. Don't get upset with someone if they don't reply right away. Believe it or not, some of us get several personal messages from people every day! That's ok. But be patient.

But don't just quit when things get tough and you don't have an answer. Probably about 90% of the time, I end up answering my own questions, lol. But that's ok! I end up learning 10 times more because of it.

Also, don't be afraid if you get stuck to look at other places on the internet. For example, if you don't understand the proper use of an 'while' statement, google it. Read a few pages. Ubot isn't creating a new style of programming. They are simplifying what is already there.

Oh, and pick projects to try. Probably one of the most helpful things I did was to choose something to automate and just do it! For example, I'm currently creating a bot to deal with web 2.0 sites. I've just about completely automated squidoo. And squidoo is a toughy. Lot's of javascript!

That brings up a good point too. I'd recommend learning the basics of html and after, javascript. Can I program in javascript - nope. But do I know enough to deal with it - yup. But learn html first! Webmasters are making it extremely hard to automate their sites, but as many here have shown, if there's a will there's a way!

Best of luck and remember to give yourself permission to learn. Have patience with ubot and uself! ;)

Frank

I agree. You just have to be patient on things like these. You will much likely to find out the cause of any problem if you'll try to stay calm at all times.

I really wanted to append this thread for all who are interested....

One thing that is going to occur as you learn more and more and you program more and more, you are going to surprise yourself!

Why?

All of a sudden, you'll be looking at all problems with solutions in mind. Some of the things that you'll learn and create will absolutely amaze you.

Plus, you will find yourself programming in other outlets as well. I've personally migrated some of my programming to the c# platform. Truly amazing. I tell you, if I could combine ubot and c#, I'd be a very happy puppy!

But the real thing that I want you to take from the post is the fact that you need to give yourself a break. Try to fix little things and build up your skills, one step at a time. In the beginning, the steps are reaaaaalllly small.

But in time, your steps will get bigger and bigger! I've been at this for about a year and a half, and I'm shocked at how much I've learnt.

If you ever encounter a problem that seems impossible to fix - it's not an impossible problem but an impossible solution! Read that again, if you didn't get it!!!

Your solution is the problem, not the problem. Think and re-think the solution before you move forward.

Enough for now though and keep on coding!

Hi Everyone,

I know this is probably not the best place to ask this question but I started reading this thread and found myself in a very similar situation to "Newbie"...

I bought the trial 2 weeks ago and was relatively scared about the poor documentation and videos regarding the usage of ubot and decided to cancel...

I have to admit I love the idea of being able to create my own bots and as well offering my solutions for sale to other marketers yet I am a bit hesitant doing the purchase because of one more reason, there are 2 solutions that come in question for me, the first one is the standard solution and the other one is the developer solution...

my question is, if i buy the standard solution can i create bots only for myself? If I want to resell them do I need to have the developer one?´

I know you might be laughing right now, I dont know nothing about programming and I think already on selling what I could create, but my big motivation to get started and taking the time to buy and learn is knowing that I will be capable of reselling what I make in the near future...any suggestions on this, am I completely wrong here?

would be nice to hear your thoughts.

thanks

Sorry for the very late reply lmcmarketing, but if you wish to do your own bots, I recommend the pro version. You will outgrow the std version pretty quickly. If you are considering developing bots to resell, the dev is the way to go.

Hope that helps.

I'm not sure I follow on this...we have quite a bit of documentation now as well as videos. you should probably have a look at:

http://ubotstudio.com/resources.aspx

You can compile and distribute your bots with any of the licenses. The other thing is as a member (assume you purchase a standard license), you can upgrade at any time in the future and it does not cost you more to upgrade than it does to buy it outright. The differences in features are listed here (pro and dev commands are so notated):

I hope this helps.
