Hi Oleg,

got another question for you.

I am experimenting with downloading files from www.deviantart.com and I did a search for something small like pics of bottle caps. I come up with about 500 pics which is good for just an experimental download. On the search page, I just hit download page to see what it does. The problem is that OE seems ignore the .php script like &q=.

The URL of the search page is http://www.deviantart.com/#order=9&q=bottlecaps

and when it downloads, It looks like I am getting the pics from www.deviantart.com. Totally different page. OE seems to just slice off #order=9&q=bottlecaps and ignore it.

I stuck in the URL http://www.deviantart.com/#order=9&q=bottlecaps manually into the browser and it comes up with the correct page, so it does exist on its own.

Anyway to correct this inside OE?

It is not a URL, but some DHTML/AJAX script on the page. Everything after # symbol is not the part of URL, so it is ignored by a browser. Sorry.
