I am using a Selenium module in Python to log into Quora. It works fine for Facebook, but I am getting an error on the send_keys('my_email') line while trying it on Quora:

I am using the following script.

from selenium import webdriver

from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys

import time

driver = webdriver.Firefox()

driver.get('http://www.quora.com/')

time.sleep(60)

username = driver.find_element_by_name('email')

time.sleep(60)

username.send_keys('my_email')

time.sleep(60)

password = driver.find_element_by_name('password')

time.sleep(60)

password.send_keys('my_password')

time.sleep(60)

password.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)

driver.close

Sleep time is not a problem here, because I tried executing a script line by line using the Python shell.

Error:

The problem is that there are multiple inputs with name="email".

You need the one in the "Regular Login" section:

form = driver.find_element_by_class_name('regular_login')

username = form.find_element_by_name('email')

username.send_keys('my_email')

password = form.find_element_by_name('password')

password.send_keys('my_password')
