Variables in wget post data
I am working on a simple bash script to download images from the website Tumblr. The idea is to use read to get login info from the user, and wget --post-data to log in, and this is what I have:
read -p "Tumblr login email: " EMAIL read -p "Tumblr login password: " PASSWRD wget --user-agent=Mozilla/5.0 --save-cookies cookies.txt --post-data 'email=$EMAIL&password=$PASSWRD' --no-check-certificate https://www.tumblr.com/login
However, it is sending "$EMAIL" and "$PASSWRD" instead of the strings for the variables, is there any way to get it to send values that have been inputted by the user?

important: Do not use :
together with --post-data. It will override
issued by wget. Post-data will not be received by HttpServlet
