There was a recent discussion concerning using wget to obtain pages from yahoo logged into yahoo as a particular user. Micah replied to Rick Nakroshis with instructions describing two methods for doing this. This information has also been added by Micah to the wiki.
I just tried the simpler of the two methods -- logging into yahoo with my browser (Firefox 18.104.22.168) and then downloading a page with wget --output-document=/tmp/yahoo/yahoo.htm --load-cookies <my home directory>/.mozilla/firefox/id2dmo7r.default/cookies.txt 'http://<yahoo url>' The page I get is what would be obtained if an un-logged-in user went to the specified url. Opening that same url in Firefox *does* correctly indicate that it is logged in as me and reflects my customizations. wget -V: GNU Wget 1.11.1 I am running a reasonably up-to-date Gentoo system (updated within the last month) on a Thinkpad X61. Have I missed something here? Any help will be appreciated. Please include my personal address in your replies as I am not (yet) a subscriber to this list. Thanks -- /Don Allen
