Hi Oleg, I wonder if there's a way to include ampersand "&" in the value of a parameter sent by POST request? Since it's a delimiter is there some escape character that could be used?

As far as I know, you should use %26 for it. For example:

http://www.server.com/process.asp
POST=param1=value1&param2=some%20word%26other%20word

The param2 text would mean for the server:

some word&other word

Best regards,

Thank you so much! I didn't realize I can use regular escape characters in the project url field.

Yes, Offline Explorer uses pretty standard commands and texts for the URLs field.
