Hi,
Blackmask.com has good collection of E-books for download. Using OE Pro, even though it is possible to download the e-books, it takes painfully large amount of time as links are redirectd to some other place.

I wish to download all the *.lit (MS Reader format) books from Blackmask . Can you help me with Filter settings so that only ther equired files are downloaded ??

Thanks

All the MS Reader .lit books have ID=a1 to ID=a12999

A good use for a Macro URL.

http://www.blackmask.com/cgi-bin/links/jump.cgi?ID=a{:1..12999}

Un-check all File Filters except User Defined.
Set User Defined to Load using URL filters setting.
Un-check all existing User Defined extensions.
Add extension lit

Set URL Filters - Server - Load files only within the starting Server.

Download 12,000+ free MS Reader ebooks.

Well, actually with the filter setting you gave me, the project doesn`t go further. It gets aborted the very next moment.

Can you check this ??

Thanks

How many files it loads before the abort?

Well, it doesn`t download a single file. OEP looks for downloading
http://www.blackmask.com/cgi-bin/links/jump.cgi?ID=a{:1..12999}
and gets aborted immediatley without downloading a single file.
Let me know where I have gone wrong...


Thanks a lot

It still downloads fine for me. Here are easier settings.

File - New - Project.
Addresses (URLs):
http://www.blackmask.com/cgi-bin/links/jump.cgi?ID=a{:1..12999}

Un-check all File Filters except User Defined.
Set User Defined to Load files only within the starting server.
Un-check all existing User Defined extensions.
Add extension lit

Download.

Hi,
Still doesn`t work. Can I mail you the screenshots of my settings (print-screen ) ??

There is an easier way - just select the Project, click Copy button on toolbar and then paste it to an E-mail message. Send it to me to support@metaproducts.com .

I am sorry for the delay answering. The problem appears to be very simple - in the Project Properties dialog | File Filters categories you disabled all kinds of extensions except .lit. However you are downloading URLs that contain .cgi extension. The solution is very easy - add .cgi extension to the File Filters | User Defined category and the download will go well.
