First of all: Welcome to BURP and this forum.

When coming to a new forum don't start posting immediately if you have a problem.

First take a look at the "Known problems" page.
If it doesn't cover your problem, go for the forum and read the articles with problems from other users as they may cover your issue.

When you've read those threads and still don't have a clue to you thing than take a thread that is similar to your problem or at least does go in the same direction.

When you're still not satisfied make a new thread and name the problem.
Thread with the topic "Help please!" or "Got a Problem" are no help for those who are willing and maybe able to help.
When you buy a book, you want to know what it is about before you buy it, right?

Have a good time here and keep crunching! :-)

Andy

Sticky posts are on the way, and when they come this will be the first post to get one ;)

Thanks Andy, <i>hopefully</i> this will help to de-clutter the forums

The original post would be more helpful if you have the links work. I would also like to suggest either get the HTML to render or drop the tags out of the post.

Unfortunately AndyK can't edit the post because it is about 8.5 years old and was posted in the old forum where the formatting was indeed HTML.

On topic: I'd like to add that there's also a quite useful tutorial section of the forums too, this is a good place to get inspiration for different ways to do things.
Additionally you can also have a look at the list of open bugs and issues, maybe the problem is not covered on the known problems page but is still in the list of tracked bugs.
