Hello,

I often have problems with downloading web pages of discussions forums. They have *.php and *.asp endings (for example " ...viewforum.php?f=1&sid=e583f0a6f0f3f726f5d4742040abaa61 ", " ...viewtopic.php?t=943 " etc.). I get too many files (and a lot off in queue) and too big size of downloaded project). I stop partialy downloaded project then the size are 20-50 MB and don`t know what to do. I think there must be some idea how to download all project not wasting disk space and time, becouse discussion forums are only text based pages.

Thanks

For example site:

It is easy to set filtering for the below site:

http://www.forumas.lietuvauzsienyje.com/phpBB2/index.php

Just go to the URL Filters | Filename, select Custom configuration and add:

viewforum.php
viewtopic.php

to the Included keywords list. This will prevent Offline Explorer from downloading anything outside the forum. On most simular sites it is easy to find simular filenames to filter only them.
