Downloading a HTTP directory structure??

I am evaluating the product and Im having a lot of trouble downloading the following HTTP directory structure;<magazine name>/<Issuexx>/Pages/

So...the items in the < > I have only put in to demonstrate the structure. Under the Pages directory all the files are image files which I would like to download.

I have set up a project to download through a proxy. For some reason the download does not seet to traverse the entire tree. I really cant be sure at all what I am doing wrong.

This is a great program.....but I'm finding it way to complicated to use.

You can try to set the Project to explore all possible directories - in teh Project Properties dialog - Parsing section. However many sites do not allow directory listing, so it could be useless.

Another way is using URL Macros. For example, in the URL:<magazine name>/<Issuexx>/Pages/

xx is a number from 01 to 12.

Then the URL to download will be:<magazine name>/Issue{:01..12}/Pages/

You may read more about URL Macros in the Help file.
