How do I set up a watch item to POST to a form?

As a rule of thumb, the POST data string should be formatted in name=value pairs, separated by ampersands "&", e.g., it should be formatted like an HTTP query string.

The name=value pairs should be comprised of every <input>, <textarea>, and <select> tag. The "name" should be the value expressed in the <input>, <textarea>, and <select>, e.g.:

<input name="username"..> would have POST text:

username=somevalue

The URL specified for this watch item should be the URL specified for the "ACTION" attribute of the <form> tag, e.g.,

<form action="http://www.domain.com/formaction.pl">

would have the watch item URL of http://www.domain.com/formaction.pl
