    Please tell me we're not putting our time and efforts into helping someone write a spamming script! coder45 can you please reassure us what you're writing this for - what you're going to use it for? If you're spamming people's forums with this then as a website ownwer with several very spammed wikis I'd love to inflict a lot of physical pain you!

    From looking at some of your previous posts (and some of the replies) you have had problems in the past posting to forums using WWW::Mechanize. Did you read the documentation? Can you post the your complete Perl code please?

    If you want to have text in a field by default, use the value property. This is a text field that has "hello" in it:

    <input type="text" value="hello" />

    You don't need any javascript to do that.

    If this isn't your problem, well, you've posted an awful lot of javascript code, much of which has not much to do with anything, and not a lot of Perl. If you could just post the code that you need changing/fixing, it would be better.

    Can you paste  Dumper($form) ? . Which module  $form belongs to ?.  $form->find_input() method, Will find based on the 'id' or 'name'? of the html input tag.
