    posting craigslist ads thorugh php scirpts...

    Hi,

    I would like to know how I can post to craigslist via php scripts.

    What variables do I use? Is there an API for craigslist?

    I know that this is possible because I have seen commercial php software that is capable of auto posting to craigslist.

    Any help to get me started would be much appreciated. Thank you!

    Ugh. I hate Craigslist spam. Good luck breaking the CAPTCHA images designed to prevent automated posting.

    Once you get past the captchas, you still have to read their confirmation e-mail, click the link inside the e-mail, and then click the "publish" button on the page opened by that link.

    So the answer is no.

    Hate to help, but not if you have a Craigslist account. Posts show up without an e-mail confirmation.

    lol no im not spamming.

    I want to post products for sale on there. I want to list 3 or 4 products per day. Doing this manually would take forever. Especially when I have to drag thorugh the database to extract products that meet my criteria for posting. building the form is not difficult, but I need to know how I can post to CL. Any directions would be appreciated. thanks
