I'm able to record the macro with Selenium just fine. The problem is when I try to play it back on another site, the open command is using the path from the original site I recorded. This causes the macro to be placed on the original site again. I have been on Google trying to figure this out, with no success. How do I change the open command to not use the site url in it??
p.s. I have tried both changing the base url and making it blank, doesn't work.

The base URL is the most

The base URL is the most obvious thing I can think of of that might be causing the issue, but it sounds like you've tried changing that. Also, you might want to check the paths in the subsequent commands just to make sure that it didn't record an absolute path somewhere along the lines.

Definitely post back here if you get it sorted out. You can also paste in the test if you'd like others to take a look.
