I try to download just a single page inside a very big site.
The page however has an address (filename) which is a number that chenges every day.
I was wondering , is there a feature in Offline Explorer that will allow users
to give explorer the NAME (text name f.ex."blondes") of the link and to have the page,
which that link refers to, downloaded ?
A site has directory "blondes". The address that the "blondes" link points to is ****.com/women.asp?choice=BL54309485 today. Tomorrow the link will have some other numbers in it.
How do I tell Offline explorer : GoTo ***.com
and look for "blondes" link in its content and then download that link?
Can I create some kind of rules to make OE look inside content or html tags?
Thanks in advance.
If you still have problems, please let me more details on that site, so I could help you better.
I will give you detailed information on a similar site.
Here is another example using the William Hill site(online bookmaker - www.wilhill.com).
For example :
My objectives :
1. I want to download ONLY the page that lists
the odds for the Champions League soccer matches.
2. I want to do it everyday at the same time 5 pm CET.
1.1 You go to the home of the site - www.willhill.com.
1.2 You click on "Football" -
address is : www.willhill.com/iibs/EN/allspostrsandcoupons.asp?sport=FB
Then on that page you have links to different links.
1.3 I want to download the page which the link "Champions League -Match Betting"
( located in section Match Betting) points to.
In my case it has address :
2.1 Scheduling is pretty straight forward. The trick is that tomorrow the number after FB
It is obviously impossible to task OE to download the URL of a single page.
It might have one address today and another tomorrow (or next time I open it for that matter).
Therefore, I was thniking that if I can tell OE to follow the links NAMED
"Football" and then "Champions League - Match Betting" I will have that page.
For, the NAME of the links are the only `constants` here. Always the same NAME.
Is that possible? Probably from a command line?
Because I don`t see any options in the interface...
The other think that scares me is that it is a script that generates the URL addresses
to certain pages online. I am not sure if Offline Explorer could cope with
that challenge. Then again I am new to OE...
Why would people script generate these addresses ???
I like to view saome pages offline when I have time (on the train ).
Would that work for you or you really need only a couple of links and loading all bettings is not a solution for you?
( and I further planned to have an internal link to every downloaded page)
was making the whole process automatic, no human intervention.
Just automatically downloading a specific page to a certain location.
There will be no person to browse and choose the correct page from a few.
The "couponchoice=FB" definitely reduced the size of downloaded data.
But still I need only one single page.
The WillHill site is not exactly the site I would like to use OE for,
but is a typical example. I know a lot of people face this problem
on a daily basis - not being able to get their offline pages due to
site administrators `hiding` content behind always changing filenames.
Looking closely at all possibilities it seems that "following link NAME"
is the most plausible solution.
It asks for a smarter way to map the site links I guess.
Please if you find any solution to the `link NAME` feature e-mail me
at firstname.lastname@example.org .
And Oleg thank you very much for your timely support.
Keep up the good work man!
Offline Explorer is an incredible product that helps many people!
Now you will be able to use the keywords like:
Please let me know how it works. Thank you!
