If you want to get straight to the question, please skip all the way down to the bolded and italicized question past the code.
I am experiencing problems with wget and html files. I am using Ubuntu 15.10.
I am trying to gather data from a database, but instead of using "get" search, it uses "post". This simply means that I don't have URLs to work with for wget.
I have created html file to search through "post" method to bypass the "get" restriction of the site. This means that it loads the initial html file, and since it is searching using "post", the stuff I want wget to download comes takes a while to load.
I understand that wget works by searching the html file for http links, but is there a way to get wget to let the html page load for a second or two, and continue with downloading the page.
Here is the html code that acts as my link to the page I want:
So if I run this html file with wget and -i, it looks for a link within the html code, without even letting the html file run.
Can I let wget use my html file as an url and load it to download it?
A prompt response would be much appreciated as I need this data ASAP.
