Hello Oleg,

I want to learn more about how works the offline explorer program and I think we are fortunate to have this forum that every day solve so many issues that help us see the possibilities of this wonderful program. I got the idea to download the forum through this program and I thought in a little rudimentary procedure that consisted in enter the 6000 entries from http://forum.metaproducts.com/Post.aspx?ID=1 to http://forum .metaproducts.com/Post.aspx?ID= 6000 (Excel of course helped me because I could not type so much ... I imagine that exist a simple command with asterisks avoid having to enter as many lines but the program supported my rudimentary system ... ) and also entry and got http://forum.metaproducts.com/Default.aspx http://forum.metaproducts.com/Posts.aspx?topic=1 to http://forum.metaproducts.com/Posts.aspx?topic=30 but the problem is that for example this page has 41 tabs http://forum.metaproducts.com/Posts.aspx?topic=8 ... the first but I can see that the pulse 2 or any other I get Server Error in '/' Application. because the address is the same ... weighed perhaps by increasing the limit of my project to 10 or 15 would solve the error but unfortunately what was initially a comfortable 300 megabytes out of control and was redirected to other pages that have nothing in common... with my rudimentary procedure except I got my goal to see the index of your old messages ... I wonder if it is possible to browse all the index of the forum offline mode thanks to offline explorer...

Thanks in advance.
Kind regards
Frank

Yes, it is really easy to download these 600 URLs with one command in the URLs field of the Project:

http://forum.metaproducts.com/Post.aspx?ID={:1..6000}

This is URL Macro - you may find many of them listed in the Help file. The latest 5.9 Service Release 3 version has a fix that allows to download the 1 2 3... pages correctly. Previous versions failed to do that.

Hello again Oleg!

Indeed the latest version supports downloading of pages different with the same URL ... but unfortunately after much fight I have not been able to download the 41 lashes of this forum ... I do something wrong and no way to force the program to download these pages ...

I began the project with the URL:

http://www.metaproducts.com/forum/Posts.aspx?topic=8

And level limit: 1

Simply increase Level setting to get more pages.

It works perfect now!!! As you said increasing the Levels I could download all the pages that I was missing without problems. Sorry I had a beginner mistake. I had learned the concept of level concept refers to the logical structure of a web. Before I had read that the entry point to a website (usually the home page) would be zero. Each link on that page zero lead to a level pages. Each link in the page would level one pages level two ... and so on to all pages of the web. My mistake was to consider all the same level...

Oleg, thank you very much for your help.

Best regards

Yes, Level is how many links to follow away from the starting page.

Great that it works now.

Oleg.
