It`s always hard for me to d/l forum with OE.
Here`s an example:
Say, I`m trying to d/l its sub-forum: Newbie Forum. But in urls, it`s impossibe to tell the difference between sub-forums -- they`re all something like ...forumid=45 or ...threadid=70898.
And I just cannot d/l the whole forum - it`s too large in most cases.
Is there any tips on that?
Would appreciate any response.

I agree with you. Forums are always hard to define exactly what you need. Anyway, there is a simple way to load that forum - browse to the forum page that lists threads in Offline Explorer Pro`s Internal browser. Now select the area that contains all links to threads with your mouse - you may start selecting from the "Thread" word on the blue background and end with the "Showing threads..." on the simular blue background. Now drag that selection to Offline Explorer Pro`s Projects tree and drop it there. You will get a new Project that will load these links. Set its Level to 1, click OK and start loading it.

Then repeat the same with 2 other pages on that forum. It is a semi-manual work, but this is the simpliest and quite visual approach.

Let me know how this helps, please. Thank you.
