Why does my Selenium URL_to_be statement not work?

Selenium does not seem to register that I manually go to the publish0x.com page. Does anyone know a solution?

My goal is to manually do the captcha at the login page and afterwards, when I log in and land on the main page I want the script to resume.

    Wait = WebDriverWait(driver, 10)
    Wait.until(EC.presence_of_element_located((By.XPATH, inputXPath)))

email = '
password = '

options = Options()
options.add_experimental_option("detach", True)
## options.add_argument("user-data-dir=/Users/vadim/Library/Application Support/BraveSoftware/Brave-Browser")
options.binary_location = '/Applications/Brave Browser.app/Contents/MacOS/Brave Browser'
driver_path = '/usr/local/bin/chromedriver'
driver = webdriver.Chrome(options=options, executable_path=driver_path)
E_Mail_vak = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//*[@id="email"]')
Pass_vak = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//*[@id="password"]')
frame = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//iframe[contains(@src, "recaptcha")]')
Captcha = driver.find_element_by_xpath("//*[@id='recaptcha-anchor']")
wait = WebDriverWait(driver, 500)
post = driver.find_element_by_css_selector('#main > div.infinite-scroll > div:nth-child(1) > div.content')
title = post.find_element_by_css_selector('h2 > a').text
author = post.find_element_by_css_selector('p.text-secondary > small:nth-child(4) > a').text
slider = driver.find_element_by_xpath('//*[@id="tipslider"]')


There are two ways I can think of, one by adding an Input statement like this:

options.add_argument('--disable-gpu')#For properly seeing the outputs
input("Please do the captcha and press any key...)

In this way, the user would complete the data and then press any key for the script to continue.

The other way is by adding a try and except statement.


except NoSuchElementException:
    #do something like
    print("Captcha Failed or Incomplete...")

In this, replace the element id “some-element” with any element that is present and only present after the user logs in, for e.g elements like Profile_nav or Settings are only present when someone logs in. So if the element doesn’t exist then it would mean that the user didn’t complete the captcha.
