Request to update the script manual with the latest variables used in the current engine scripts

0
Hi @sven, I tried to read the engine scripts used in the SER, and found it's a bit difficulty to understand because many of variables are not described in the script manual, so could you please update the script manual to describe all variables, this will help us developer custom engines or refine the current enginues...
Here are a few variables not found in the manual:
------
[LOGIN_STEP1]

pass=%password%
name=%login%
mail=%your e-mail%
pass[pass1]=%password%
pass[pass2]=%password%
files[picture_upload]=%leave%
language=%leave%
timezone=%leave%
captcha_response=%captcha%

edit[name]=%login%
edit[pass]=%password%

*mail*=%your e-mail%
*pass*=%password%
mimemail_textonly=0
files[picture_upload]=%leave%
name=%leave%
timezone=%leave%
language=%leave%
adtype_select=%random_option%
adstatus=%leave%

signature[format]=*html*

    Actually everything is documented as far as i know. That stuff you have here are the names of the forms on the webpage like
    <input name="pass" type="password">

    Thanks for your answer, two questions:
    1). Does this mean I can add custom field in the script if I find a new field in the form?
    2). What does the "*html*|1" mean in the script?
    ---------------
    comment_body[und][0][format]=*html*|1
    ----------------

    1) yes of course
    2) It means it will try to match that field first finding *html* in the options and 1 next.
  • 0
    I am still confused with the second one, could you please give me a sample about how it looks like?

    SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    there is a select field on the webpage with....
    <select name="comment_body[und][0][format]">
      <option value="1">html</option>
      <option value="2">plain text</option>
    </select>

    So SER tries to make the selection based on the mask in that variable, it tries to select the "html" entry and not the "plain text" one.

    Hi @sven, I have questions about the [*_step1][*_step2]...scenario, let's take a look at the Joomla K2 script:

    ----------
    [LOGIN_STEP1]
    find link=Login
    find url=%targethost%*component/users/?view=login|%targethost%*view=login*
    alternative url=/index.php/component/users/?view=login
    ;1 = Download the new URL and continue with STEP2 or finish the submission if nothing else should be done.
    just download=1

    submit success=>Log out<|value="user.logout"|Edit Profile<|Profil bearbeiten<|Editar perfil<|<fieldset id="users-profile-core">|>Logout<|>Your Details<
    submit failed=Your account has either been blocked or you have not activated it yet.|Username and password do not match or you do not have an account yet.|Invalid Token|<div class="alert alert-warning">|<h4 class="alert-heading">Warning</h4>|data-dismiss="alert">׼/a>

    ;1 = if a submission is not detected as successful or failed it will still be taken as successful (appearing in log with “unknown submission status”)
    verify on unknown status=1

    username=%login%
    passwd=%password%
    remember=1


    [LOGIN_STEP2]
    modify step=3
    modify step condition=="username"|=username|='username'|="passwd"|=passwd|='passwd'

    modify url=/index.php?option=com_user&view=login
    just download=1


    [LOGIN_STEP3]
    form name=login - Login|FORM 1 - Log in|*Log in
    form url=*/component/users/?task=user.login|*option=com_user*
    form id=login

    seconds to wait before submission=%random-5-10%

    set unknown variable=%leave%
    ---------------------

    What exactly does [Login_step1][Login_step2][Login_step2] do? why do we need 3 steps?
    My understanding is:
    1). Login_step1 find the login URL like: /index.php/component/users/?view=login? then download it? fill the fields with specified value, then submit the form? then match the message to check if it's submitted successfully or fail?

    2). Why do we need the [Login_step2] and [Login_step3]? will the login_step2 and login_step3 execute no matter successful or failed of [login_step1]?

    Please advise, thanks.

    pay attention to the "modify step" and "modify step condition" statements.
    LOGIN_STEP1 is performed and then LOGIN_STEP2. On that second step the condition is checked if we are really on the login page, if so, we move to the last step and perform he actual submission, else we try to go to another login page.

    This is usually not needed but for K2 you usually have no login link or form. It's hidden and you have to try several login-urls till you find the right one.

    I understand the "modify step" and "modify step condition", what I don't understand is when the URL and form found in [login_step1], I suppose the submission will proceed?
    In this case, will the [login_step2] be executed?

  • 0
    SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    login_step1 - try to dl one possible login-url
    login_Step2 - check if thats correct, if so...jump to step3 and submit else try another url
    login_step3 - fill form and submit
  • 0
    I think I understand it, it works like this:
    [Login_step1] --- Download the link from the "login_step1".
    [Login_step2] --- Check condition on the page from "login_step1", if yes, go to "login_step3", fill form and submit, if the condition doesn't match, download the page in the "login_step2", then go to "login_step3" fill form and submit.
    Please correct if I miss something, thanks.

    Hi @Sven, I have a question for the K2 engine, I want to ignore the post step if the %user_id% large than certain number let's say 10000, how to modify the script?
    ----
    [Step1]
    modify step=2
    modify step condition=%user_id%>10000

    [Step2]
    Abort post article...

    you can do that by:
    modify step condition=*jform[id]" value="[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=profile.edit&amp;user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=profile.edit&user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*view=profile&amp;user_id=*|*view=profile&user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=user&amp;id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*

    Hi @Sven, it doesn't seem to work, I add the snippet in the [Step1] as following:
    ----
    [STEP1]
    modify step=2
    modify step condition=*jform[id]" value="[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=profile.edit&amp;user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=profile.edit&user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*view=profile&amp;user_id=*|*view=profile&user_id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*|*task=user&amp;id=[1-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]*

    .....
    [STEP2]
    just download=1
    ------

    I tested a few sites and checked the debug log, the [Step2] never executed no matter whether the condition meets or not...

    Please advise.
    Thanks.

    well you have to give step1 something to download...then the modify step is applies based on the condition. you might have to add an extra step here.

    THis is the script I modified, it still doesn't work, NO posts are submitted at all, I don't understand the concepts of [Extra_step*], what's it, when would be used? why don't just use [step1,2,3....x] instead?

    Please advise.

    What does the BLANK mean?

    SvenSven www.GSA-Online.de
    A blank is handled as a separator since a space is not part of a regular url. That ! sign is a negotiator and means that the next part shout NOT be part of the found URL.
