URL without explicit filename and with query string

Please do not be confused by the odd subject... I will try to explain my problem:

The project loads a html file from the given URL1. In this html file, which is downloaded from (let us say) server1, there is a URL2 to a file on server2. The problem lies in the structure of URL2 - it is in http://server2/path/?option1=value1&option2=value2&...

No matter what have I tried to persuade OE to grab the URL2 document from URL1, nothing worked. If URL2 is stated directly in project`s adresses, everything works just fine. No need to say that this "workaround" is not acceptable for me.

I mainly played with File Filter - Text extensions, but what to add here when you do not have anything after slash and in front of question mark?

Can this be done at all? If yes how?

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Offline Explorer Pro should download such links without any problem. I think, the link is being written in the calling HTML file some non-standard way, like in a Java script URL calculation. Is it possible to see the page with such link? I would let you know what could be done.

Hi Oleg,

Sorry for the late answer... have been occupied with other tasks...

...and thanks, you were right - it was java script calculation. Unfortunately I can not send you the link - it is intranet of our company (even if I was allowed to do so, it would not help you).

Can you give me some general advice regarding java script recalculations, or do you need a striped "generic" sample of HTML to help me further?

I have come accross a somewhat similar sample on "http://www.mladina.si/tednik/200243/clanek/m-toncek/" (sorry, the text is in slovenian). There is a "javascripted" thumbnail picture on the right which opens a new window with a normal sized picture. How do you persuade OE to grab this "big" picture?

Thanks again.

I looked at the site. THe URL is linked in an easy way:
<A ONCLICK="window.open(`./img/m-izjave_display.jpg`,`Foto`,`toolbar=no,width=655,height=571`)"...........

This URL should be retrieved with Offline Explorer Pro well. I would only suggest you to get the latest version here:

Unzip the file and replace the old oe.exe file with the new one.
