Can OE traverse depth-first?

Some sites will detect whether the parent page is opened or not and then allow to be downloaded.
Can OE add new explored urls depth-first?

Can you please tell me what do you mean? Do you want Offline Explorer to load some page first, before loading all others? Or something else?

Dear Sir,

I think the site I wanna download detects IE by using some variables in form(memory?).
For instance, if the parent page has a variable named FILENAME and posts it from a form, then the child page will inherent FILENAME from memory.
If there are 10 parent pages with 10 different FILENAMEs, because OE transfers breadth-first, the 10th FILENAME will become to be the only one working FILENAME when OE handles the child pages from 1 to 10, not the expected FILENAME1 to FILENAME10.
If OE transfers depth-first, like some robot-spiders, the problem will do not exist.
My question is whether OE can transfer from breadth-first to depth-first or not.
Or can I get the urls in queue first, without downloading, and then edit them?

Thanks for reading my poor english.

Best regards.

Well, we planned to add a feature to sort or move items in the Queue, but it looks like we will be able to do that only in 3.1 version. So far, Offline Explorer doesn`t explore all links to the maximum depth first.
