PHP and paths location

I`m currently downloading a PHP site, wich most of the time is a pain!
On the current site OE Pro puts most of the files in the root, wich eventually will be something like 36.000 files, when the prevent overload options isn`t enabled.
Links look like:

http://website.com/index.php?show=file&path=/zips/folder2/zipfile.zip
http://website.com/index.php?show=file&path=/images/folder2/imagefile.jpg

OE Pro downloads the actual zip file, and keeps the php, including all behind the "?", and puts it in the root.
Is there a way to tell OE Pro to make a zip folder, and a folder2 folder, so it can put the file in there. And the same for the image, and all other files?

Thanks!

Yes, you can use URL Substitites in the Properties | Advanced section to change filenames and folders as you wish.

Great, almost works perfect.

I just don`t know how to interpret the following:

http://members.website.com/index.php?show=file&path=/images/session1/thumbnail_tn.jpg

What`s the best way to put this in the URL substitues? When I do like:

/index.php?show=*&path=* => /**/*/index.php

it makes all seperate folders of all the thumbnails?!

OK. Change this to:

/index.php?show=*&path=* => /**-*-index.php

Thanks, works fantastic!!
But what does the "-"exactly mean/do?

Furthermore, I have some links that contain 4 paramters:

http://members.website.com/index.php?
/index.php?show=****&gallery=***&section=**&image=*
/****/***/**/*

I know it`s not possible for OEP to substitue 4 parts, but what do you think is the best way to handle this!

Thanks again!

It simply separates two parameters with a "-" symbol in the output filenames.

Regarding 4 parameters. I plan to add it in future, but it will take some time, sorry.

Ah, I see now. So eventually all files will be like /image.jpg-index.php or /movie.wmv-index.php.
I guess that`s the only solution?

You can add another rule that will process such converted URLs.
