so abcd.jpeg was renamed to abcd.html (and this html was included as an image into another html).
online this picture shows up normally but oe isn?t getting it correctly.
while downloading i can see the these (image)html?s are queued but when they are to be downloaded there comes this message:
1.connecting to host
2.host connected (the filesize shows up correctly ~300kb)
3.aborted (but WHY?)
i have already tried to add .html to the file-filters dialog but it didn?t work.
has someone an idea how to get these files?
ps: even better would be if OE could recognize these files and automatically rename them to .jpg (for example if it finds the "JFIF" tag at the beginning of an html-file, but this would need an update while the downloading should work without one somehow)
sorry for the double post but i forgot the topic on the first try and couldn?t enter the thread (if a mod sees this please delete one of the posts)
Regarding changing extensions - this will cause Offline Explorer to change links in downloaded files to point to files with changed extensions. It is double-work.
in the third post on this page (from "Stiffler.Cum") there are these images.
if you do right-click properties on them you get the url: like "http://stiffler.web1000.com/Stiffler/Natalie_Raitano/raitano_natalie4.html"
these are the files which are not downloaded in OEP for some reason.
not to forget: i have not set any limits (filesize or dimension) for images at all so this cannot be the cause.
it looks like it?s working as it reports the correct file-size for these files but than aborts the download for some reason. the question is why? i think i have no setting which should filter this files out but OEP still isn?t loading them.
and hiding them behind an html-extension is quite common on boards atm because you can use free webspace (like fortunecity) without having to fear that tey are deleted because of the bandwidth they consume.
on some image intensive boards almost every fifth image is posted in .html style and the number is increasing.
Sorry that it took too much time.
Here is the updated version:
Please unzip the file and replace the old oe.exe file with the new one.
excellent support here :-)
i just found a post on a board about this update (paul is advertising your program very well).
is there an update for the enterprise edition aswell?
thanks in advance,
I`m wondering if this issue is the same as downloading images like this one:
<IMG SRC="/generate.asp?imgid=100" width="100"..>
those are images created on the fly, or per request. you can find many of them now in the web. currently OE doesn`t download those kind of images. will the new update help?
For example, if you download from http://www.site.com/dir/file.htm, you will need to allow loading from all directories to get the above image.
