downloading a site from archive.org

Hello,

I`m trying to download: http://web.archive.org/web/20020922072257/http://immopoint.be/

URL Filters - Directory
included keywords: *2002*immopoint*

After completion, when I browse the default.html in the internal OE browser, I only see the letters but no pictures etc.

Must I do some other settings to download correctly or is the problem with my system?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I think, you need to select "Load from any site" in the Location box - the Project Properties dialog for the Project - File Filters - Images section. Does this help?

Hello Oleg,

I`ve tried your setting but no change: only text (but not the right font and color) and no pics.
Additional, I get a long list of 2006xxxxxxxxxx maps.... :-)

The setting shouldn`t be neccesary because AFAIK all the pics are in /2002xxxxxxxxxx/
example:
http://web.archive.org/web/20020714020240/immopoint.be/images/homeani.gif
http://web.archive.org/web/20020714021021/immopoint.be/images/huisani.gif

Does this page work for you?
If it does, it HAS to work for me also and the problem must be on my side......

There is an easy solution - please change the Project URL to:

http://web.archive.org/web/20020922072257/immopoint.be/

- in other words - remove /http:// part from the URL and this solves the problem.

It still does not work :-(

The files are somehow redirected in OE. Let`s take huisani.gif. In the default.html the address is:

file:///C:/Program%20Files/avast/web.archive.org/web/20020922072257/immopoint.be/images/huisani.gif

but when I click directly on the file in the map, the OE browser gets the file from:

C:\Program Files\avast\web.archive.org\web\20020714021021\immopoint.be\images\huisani.gif

So, it seems like OE retrieves the file from another map. Which btw is the location on the original site on archive.org.
The file "huisani.gif" is mentioned in C:\..\..\..\..\20020922072257\immopoint.be\images\ but when I click on it, it doesn`t open and I get a red cross.

Anyway, since it`s redirecting to the correct location I can`t understand why only the bare HTML can be seen in the OE browser, without make-up (black lines, correct font(color)) and pics.

Any help would be welcome :-)

Offline Explorer handles this redirect with the help of its internal server. To view that site with images outside Offline Explorer, simply use File | Export. This will correct redirected links to real images.

If I export the site it works.....somewhat. Many files seem to be missing...
Oh well, I can always reconstruct the site manually, I guess.. :-/

But I have another, slightly related, question.

If I want to download a site with Autosave, when I click "browse" I get the following message:
http://bluehome.net/~samysamymricom230/bg.php

This says: Cannot find file:///C:\Program Files\avast\web.archive.org/web/20020922072257/http_3A/immopoint.be/ Check the path or the Internet-address.

Do you have an idea what this could mean?

Thanks.

Can you please tell me, how exactly I can reproduce this?

I do the following:

1. I create a new Project
2. then I click the Autosave button on the Internal Browser toolbar
3. and then I click the Browse button

Here you can see a picture of the message I get >>> http://bluehome.net/~samysamymricom230/bg.php

Can you please check, if you have Internal HTTP Server enabled in the Options dialog? This is necessary in order to make AutoSave feature working.

Yep, that did the trick.

Thanks.
