How to mirror this complicated site

03/29/2006 07:02 am
Hello, j would like to mirror this big site :
I select : level 1 and in the Project properties "download all files", "link level limit is 7", File Filter is "load from any site", URL Filter is "files only within the starting server", "explore all dir".
Some question to know how work OEE:
1)which is the difference between the "level" on the OEE main page and the "link level limit" in the Project properties? If the site is deeper 7 clicks the "level must be more than 1 ?
2) why OEE have dowloaded the page (and the links below) and others if j have set files only within the starting server" ? j need this page for my project ?

Then I download the project. When finished, with the internal browser OE, J click on the home page, j fill the empty field of the COMMON NAME with the word "cat" and j press "Search", but the "page is impossible to see".
Can you help me to solve this problem?

Thanks a lot.

Here is what happens here. The other Level setting in the URL Filters | Server section allows you to load files on other servers. The first Level (in Address section) defines how deep files should be loaded on the starting server in this case and the other Level allows to load files up to 7 clicks deep on others. That`s why you get files from other sites.

I would recommend you to set Level on the Address page to 7, disable another Level setting and set all File Filters sections to "Load using URL Filters settings".

Search is impossible to download, because search on a site uses an internal site database to find desired pages. If you want to record a search and download its results, please see the Help file | FAQ | How to submit any HTML form... topic.

I hope this helps.
