Can you tell us what you want to do with the bot? What automated tasks you want to perform, and I'll try to show you how you can do it. RandomTime 10:14, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Well, I want to translate an article for a categorie to another. Only that now.----Danke7 (talk) -DragonBall 04:14, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
The basic procedure for using AutoWikiBrowser (AWB) is as follows:
  1. Have AWB log in as a user
  2. Make a list of pages to modify
  3. Set the options (specify what to do to each page)
  4. Start the process (AWB takes you through each page, previewing the planned changes, and letting you make further changes, such as adding a template). Once you get the hang of it it is easy. Manyman (Talk) 05:54, July 5, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, thanks. ;)----Danke7 (talk) -DragonBall 19:43, July 5, 2010 (UTC)

"Have AWB log in as a user" This doesn't work for me, and gives the message "The password you provided is incorrect. (an authentication plugin rather than MediaWiki itself rejected the password)" Joeytje50talk 19:47, September 28, 2010 (UTC)

Did you enter the correct password? It seems to work for me. —Manyman (talk) 21:25, September 29, 2010 (UTC)
Yes. But according to the message too, that is not the problem, as MediaWiki didn't reject the password. It's "an authentication plugin". It is also not capitals, also checked it. I used the exact same pass as i use to login on wikia itself. Joeytje50talk 18:18, September 30, 2010 (UTC)
Could be worth reporting it. —Manyman (talk) 10:04, October 3, 2010 (UTC)
