Feature request: URL indices

I`ve been using OE Pro for over a year now and have had a lot of success with it. It is hands-down the best site archiving utility out there, but I`ve learned there are tricks to using OE effectively if you want to archive a site where you aren`t familiar with the layout. For example, one particular site I wanted to archive was split across 4 different accounts on the same server, each with a unique name. I had to run through the site manually checking links to see if they jumped to different accounts or servers but were integral to the site itself. It was then I thought how helpful it would be if I could see an index of links, both offline and online links, throughout a downloaded project. Using that list I can amend my project URL filters to include whatever I missed. I can`t imagine it would be that difficult to implement. Even better would be the option for a parsing of the site simply to create an index prior to downloading any of it. That way I could maximize the effectiveness of my URL filters at the start. Regardless, I am happy with OE and we are fortunate to have such an application with such powerful features at a reasonable price.

Thank you for your kind words! We plan to add a feature to pre-download a site to create its Site Map without loading images and other stuff. This will help you to make the filters more visually.

However this will take some time.
