Hello dear Support,

I'd like to know, if it could be possible to name filenames of saved files from a project is possible. (or maybe renaming the files to save *before* saving them to the harddrive)

We're on a Site which offers some pages with single images on it and when we right-click in FireFox to save an image, FireFox offers a filename like "picture.php.jpg". Now, we can't save another image with the same name without renaming it by hand.

When we hoover over an image in FireFox, we see a tooltip, displaying the correct name of the image, we'd like to have as the filename.

In OE we tried a lot of things, but we could'nt get OE to save images with the "correct" name of an image.
OE saves files (jpegs with no extension) named like picture.php@src=aHR0cDovL3g0LmZhcC50by9pbWFnZXMvbWluaS81MC83NDcvNzQ3NDQwMzIzLmdpZg==

What we see, when we have a look at the page's sourcecode is something like this:

<title>site's name :: title of the image</title>

<h2 class="title">title of the image</h2>

<img title="title of the image" alt="title of the image" src="http://www.servername.tld/picture.php?src=aHR0cDovL2ZhcC50by9pbWFnZXMvNTAvODgyOTE3MjA4L2FtYXRldXItcG9ybi9Ib3QteW91bmctbnVkZS1hbWF0ZXVyLXRlZW5zLTIuanBn" border="0" width="784" height="555" align="center" /><br>
<a href="javascript:history.go(-1)"><img src="http://www.servername.tld/images/back.jpg" border="0" width="118" height="43" /></a><br>

We'd like to know, if it is possible to have OE recognize tags in the page source and take it for a filename.

Thank you very much in advance,

Unfortunately, this is not supported. Offline Explorer creates filenames from URLs.

Sometimes servers supply alternative filenames in the HTTP protocol headers. In this case Offline Explorer creates both files. The URL-derived filename contains a redirecting code that points to the actual file.

Sad, but good to know, thank you.

Is there any chance this "feature" will be implemented in the next versions?

We have no current plans for this feature. Mostly because there are no similar requests.

Anyway, please give me the page URL to look at its tags and see how exactly the image is downloaded. Perhaps, I will have other ideas on that.

Thank you!
