I'm playing around with a PHP web scraper on a popular social media site. I can open and parse the public pages with a basic Curl function, but I can't get the scraper to work with the site's cookies. This project is just to:
1) Create a free account on the site.
2) Create a php script that can access the site using that account. I just need a web page content passed to a variable and I'll take it from there.
If you are not using Curl please explain why.
