Hi there..

I am trying to download the site www.constantcontact.com.
I have a trial membership with them (username: mbriceno; password:5003090)
I noticed that they jump from server to server, but OE doesn?t seem to be able to pass through the login page. I tried the Alt + Ctrl when submitting the form, but it did not work.

I will highly appreciate if someone can orient me how to procceed...

Yes, it is a bit tricky. Anyway, the following URLs field lines should help (4 lines):

http://ccprod.roving.com/roving/wdk/API_LoginSiteOwner.jsp
POST=loginName=mbriceno&loginPassword=5003090&forwardError=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.constantcontact.com%2Fdefault%2Fprocessing_login.jsp
IgnoreLogOutLinks
Referer=http://www.constantcontact.com/default/processing_login.jsp

Best regards,

> Thank you very much.! It worked.

But I am forced now to know the magic trick!. What did you do? Can you explain me a liitle bit about the " &forwardError=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.constantcontact.com%2Fdefault%2Fprocessing_login.jsp" and the "IgnoreLogOutLinks" thing? (Teach the hungry man how to fish and you will feed him for life)
Where I can get more information about this tricks?

One more thing.....
Do you use any kind of http sniffer program to keep track of the different jumps from server to server? Do you know about software such as "http Interceptor"? Will this be a good direction to take if I want to learn about the subtles of difficult-to-download sites?

Please Help..... I am starting to become addictive and I need moooore. :)

This was simple - I noticed that the server goes to a page, which also submits a form with your logon data. To intercept the second form submission, I pressed Ctrl-Alt keys after I submitted the first form. Then I waited until the second page loaded and submitted the form - I got the new Project and released Ctrl-Alt keys.

I am using my own utility if I want to study a traffic between a server and a client. But it is quite ugly. :-)

Thanks Oleg. I?m really impressed with the quality of your support.

I am writing you because I stumbled with a new obstacle in my way trying to download www.constantcontact.com

Once OE gets to the page:

www.constantcontact.com > email campaigns > create

is unable to continue downloading. You will find there a "start" button that I?m sure is blocking the process.

Can you help me out one more time?

Thanks in advance

Sure. Try to enable forms processing in the Project Properties dialog | Advanced section. This should help.

Hi Oleg. I checked the form processing tab, but it didn[t work. Any other ideas?

OK. Another way is to create a new Project that would load the page after the START button - browse the site online in the Internal Browser and when you are on the page with the above button, press Ctrl-Alt on your keyboard and click the button. You will get a new Project to load the corresponding page. Adjust its settings, click OK button and download it.
