if you navigated to (link contains adult content) http://www.kink.com/channels

there are various categories under channels.

I would like to use offline explorer to download all content from a certain category, take for example a channel named "hogtied"

the specific shoots regardless of category are generically titled such as:
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40657
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40647

however the download link for the specific video in a specific category such as "hogtied" is named:
https://cdn.kink.com/data/hogtied/members/
https://cdn.kink.com/data/hogtied/members/

could you tell me what settings I should use to download only the videos from the category "hogtied"?

I would suggest you to use the Project Properties dialog and use the starting URL:

http://www.kink.com/channel/hogtied

Set Level to 10.

Then URL Filters - Directory section and add two keywords to the Included list:

/hogtied/
/shoot/

This should be enough to filter the desired category.

I attempted your settings however offline explorer was downloading from more than the category "hogtied", I possibly have communicated the problem wrongly:

where i wrote:
the specific shoots regardless of category are generically titled such as:
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40657
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40647

I meant

videos in every category/channel have the same basic url, so in the category "hogtied" the videos url maybe
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40657

whereas in an another category/channel (which i dont want to download) titled for example "publicdisgrace" the url would be
http://www.kink.com/shoot/40647

It seems the only means of differentiating between categories is the download url of the actual video, for example "hogtied" would be:
https://cdn.kink.com/data/hogtied/members/

whereas "publicdisgrace" (which i do not want to download) is:
https://cdn.kink.com/data/publicdisgrace/members/

I noticed that the .../shoot/... links in some category belong only to it. So, if we disallow downloading other categories (by using the /hogtied/ keyword) then no video from another category will be downloaded.

However I might be wrong. In this case, it would be easier to find a web page that lists all videos of a category and download it with Level=1 to limit unwanted links.
