How do I download a site using custom filename OR directory filters?

Hello.

I tried to download a picture gallery from a site resembling the following format:

Thumbnail page: http://www.blah.com/pics.html

1) Clicking on a thumbnail: http://www.blah.com/pics.html?i=something/image01.jpg
2) The actual picture location: http://www.blah.com/pics/something/image01.jpg

I want to get all the pictures located in the directory http://www.blah.com/pics/something/ . The image set does not have constant filenames (hence the need for offline explorer).

I want to use URL filters to download the pictures. But to get their real links, I need to spider through all the html`s for each photo.

So I thought of an easy way to do this: spider everthing that has "something" in its filename. The problem is that offline explorer recognizes object (1) above as a filename, and object (2) as a directory.

So I need a way for OE to get files that have "something" either in the filename OR directory. Right now if I type both in, it automatically assumes that I want filename AND directory.

Any help? Thank you.

Yes, this is possible. You will have to add two keywords to the URL Filters | Filename | Included filename keywords list:

pics.html
http://www.blah.com/*pics*/*

This will enable loading if a URL contains pics in both filename and directory parts.
