Hello,

i`ve always wondered - if i include say word "home" in both include filter list, and exclude filter list,
which one will be used?

also, what`s this IgnoreLogoutLinks that i`ve seen somewhere in this forum?

thanks

And few more questions:

ParsingMax in registry doesnt seem to work? =/

What`s about Ctrl+Alt+Login that i`ve read?

are those some kind of tips that are listed somewhere i can`t find?

Furthermore:

auto suspending to file command doesn`t seem to work for me? :/

I have it like this:
Additional=Channels=10;ChannelsPerServer=10;DepthFirst;SuspendToFileEvery=10;d:\v.wdq

Also, how do i continue downloading, if i don`t have file suspended, and the session on site timed out? i can relogin to it, but how do i continue it so that existing files are not downloaded? if i select download only new files, then it doesnt work, because OE tries to download media files without opening the page they belong to, and the site kicks me out because of that :(

OK, I just *can`t* get it, no matter what I try. More questions:

I want to stop downloading as soon as "User Signin" appears in any page. So I enter
that text in Content Filters page, and check "stop download .." check box. And now all of
sudden NO PAGES WHATSOEVER are being saved! Log says rejected cause of file filters. WHY? :(

Furthermore, if I select to download only missing files, then is it enough to put file in the download directory and it wont be redownloaded, or does it also check those wd3 etc files? How do those work anyway?

Thanks

Few more suggestions:

would be nice to see all the links in project that were not downloaded (eg scan all the files in proper, and report all the files linking to the online site, so that i can see if any content is missing).

second:

sometimes media files are served by php scrip, for example:

<img src="showimage.php?id=1">

when it`s this way, OE doesnt know this is media file, and "skip media files" fails (they are redownloaded).

i think it shouldnt just judge by extension, but also by the way it`s used..

Woah, a lot of posts from me :-) but i have it rolling!

So I found another problem in exported CHM file.

The images on my project are being served like this:

<img src="gallery,page.show_image,id.xxx">

and they download like that filename aswell, which is fine.

Upon export to CHM, AFAIK they get converted to "gallerypage.show_imageid.XXX", (eg "," gets removed). And that works fine. However, in SOME pages (i have no idea what makes it wrong) the "," does NOT get replaced, and thus the image doesnt load. even more, after entering such page, i can no longer navigate around - i get IE errors =/

any ideas?

If any list (included/excluded) doesn`t allow the file to be loaded, it will be skipped. So, if you include and exclude "home", all links with home in the URL will be not downloaded.

IgnoreLogoutLinks is a special filter that disallows to follow any link that has the following in the URL:

logoff
logout
signoff

and other words.

ParsingMax still works, but it may add few extra files to the parsing queue, but not more than the ParsingMax + Number of connections.

Ctrl+Alt+Login and many other tricks can be found in the program help or in the Welcome page - Tutorials section.

SuspendToFileEvery - you need to have several lines:

Additional=DepthFirst
Channels=10
ChannelsPerServer=10
SuspendToFileEvery=10;d:\v.wdq

Content Filters - please check another box to allow pages with no such words to be saved.

To skip a file download, it is enough to have it in the Download Directory. No other file is necessary.

You can do this easily - Ctrl+F5, F9 - then you will have all missing links in the Queue tab.

>img src="showimage.php?id=1"

I am not sure about this, because such can also lead to Web pages that have redirects, messages that there no such link, etc.

Regarding CHM export - can you please give me an example of a page with such links?

Thank you!

Best regards,

but i will need to wait till it parses all the files no? and then it`ll auto start so i need to manage to quick f9 quickly.. besides, i might not even have the access to the site anymore :/

but so can image.jpg - it can have redirect, error message, etc..?

sorry, i cant - my account expired, and it was private site anyway.. i can only send you some example downloaded pages?
Oleg Chernavin 11/28/2005 11:18 am
Yes, you will have to wait for all files to be parsed. To overcome the issue that you have to press F9 quickly, set 2 seconds delay between downloads - 2 seconds will be enough to press F9 after Ctrl+F5.

Yes, you can send me the saved HTML page to support@metaproducts.com

But there are 20k or so files, it`ll take a long time to wait for that, and i`ll have to sit by and monitor :(

i`ll try to make a sample project with just few files and send it to you

Yes, I just received it. Did you supply your actual E-mail address there, so I can reply the E-mail, or I should better post my answer here?

And i`ve replied - I can also send you exported chm from those few files that still exhibits the problem..
Oleg Chernavin 11/30/2005 04:13 am
I am not sure, it will help. I need live files from Offline Explorer.

So is there no hope to export it to CHM..?
Oleg Chernavin 12/02/2005 07:31 am
I am afraid that it is so. But why you don`t like compressed EXE?
