Hi,

Can you please help me download this entire thread?

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1457438

It currently has 625 pages already, and all I could have downloaded is the very first page of the thread. I can't browse offline the succeeding pages unless I download it manually.

Could you please provide me the settings/configurations on how to download this automatically.


Thanks and regards,
Marvs

The easiest way would be to create a new Project with the URL:

http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1457438&page={:1..625}

Set the Level limit to 0 to skip following other links and start the download.

Best regards,

Thanks very much for your help. By the way, what am i gonna do to keep my offline in sync with the actual thread?

One way is to change the last number to 1000 and run the download from time to time to refresh the pages.

thanks Oleg. I'm following your instructions now, however I noticed that the pictures embedded on the posts (especially if uploaded via image sharing sites like imageshack etc.) are not downloaded. is it because my limit has been set to 1? what if i remove/uncheck the limit, what are the repercussions of doing so?

regards,

Can you tell me what page contains such image? I will check this. Usually, Level=1 should follow the link and get it.

Oleg.
