Hi there -

Just testing your neat software - should help me a lot ;-)

But my challenge is when trying to mirror a postnuke site (php/mysql) what I`m really after are the theme.php and the css files. All are contained in the root/themes/"specific_theme" dir.

I get the css stuff ok even though they are one level down in the style dir but I can`t seem to pick up the theme.php . I have the filter set to include .php but still no joy.

Any advice?

Could you please tell me the exact page URL that should load the files you want?

Best regards,

Thanks for the speedy reply - the specific site is but it really applies to any postnuked site.

Any help much appreciated.

Sorry - don`t think I read you post properly - try again - I would expect the file to be at:


Each time (and every site) I try - I miss out on that file but manage to pick up:

http://www.nolagay/themes/hajblue/style/style.css (& styleNN.css)

Hope that`s the info you need ;-)

Maybe I don`t understand you well - I just tried to load Offline Explorer got the following CSS files:

There are also many images in that directory, but I don`t see any link to

I looked carefully for it in the page source.

Thanks Oleg,

Yes I had no trouble getting the CSS files - the only reason I mentioned them is because they ALWAYS site in the dir: root/themes/styles. Above that level, every postnuke site uses a file called theme.php, it sits in: root/themes - that`s the file I need - it sets up the layout and general structure of each page as it is rendered.

For example if you try OE on my (very) beta site and try to capture theme.php - I can`t pick it up with OE - but it`s definitely there.

Why is that file always missed?

Do you know some particular page on that site that contains link to that theme.php file? I haven`t found that link when loading the front page of the first site you mentioned. Offline Explorer cannot load a file if it is not linked to some other page.

There is a way to explore contents of all possible directories, but it you enter:

You get just an empty screen, no links.
