OEP not downloading most of a site

The site I`m after is <http://www.elecciones.gov.cl/>. OEP is only downloading 42 files, when there are at least a couple hundred there.

If you click on the first link in the body of the above page, "Sitio Historico Electoral" (which takes you here: <http://www.elecciones.gov.cl/indexf.html>), you`ll get to at least one of the pages that are giving me trouble.

The page has several frames. At the top, the links "Candidato", "lista/pacto", "partidos politicos", and so on are not loading. They are Java links, I believe.

At the top left, the varios pages under the drop-down box are not loading.

And finally, there`s a set of links that go down the left-hand side: "PAIS", "I Region", "II Region", etc. If you click on them, you get sublinks (which OPE is indeed downloading), and if you keep going you`ll end up with a list of places with Java links. Check this page out for an example: <http://www.elecciones.gov.cl/g-region9.htm>. OEP is not downloading any of these links, which have the following form: javascript:Consulta(`5815`) .

What`s the problem here? And how do I get around it?

Thanks!

The problem is that the site uses complex script calulations to make links. Such calculations are not yet supported, but we are working on this. We cannot tell when a solution will be available, however. Sorry.

Thanks for letting me know what`s happening with the site.

Cheers.

I would really love to help you fast. We are in the process of testing new code that evaluates Java scripts calculations. It will be introduced in 3.0 version. However that site uses different parts of scripts in frames when one frame calls script inside another and this complicates things a lot.
