I`ve tried several settings but keep failing :-(

How do I download any of the forums at the following links?
Rumor mill has it that this website might disappear soon and I don`t want to loose the info/references at these forums. I do have a userid and password to the site.

Dear Chris,

The site has really complex authentication procedure. Anyway, there is a relatively easy way to overcome it.

Please browse to the desired forum in Offline Explorer Pro`s Internal browser and click Login link. Now enter your username/password there and hold down Ctrl-Alt while submitting the form. Offline Explorer Pro will create a new Project for you. Set Level limit to what you need (probably 7 or 10 or even more - I don`t know how deep are the forums). Then go to URL Filters | Server, select Custom configuration and add

forums.delphiforums.com

to the Included server keywords list.

Go to URL Filters | Directory and select "Load from all directories"

Go to URL Filters | Filename, select Custom configuration and add

airguningtexas
msg

to the Included filename keywords list.

Replace the first keyword with the name of the other forum, if necessary.

Then click OK button and start downloading the Project.

Best regards,
