saving HTML, but not PHP etc

On a website that uses both HTML and PHP I want to download everything, except Text that`s in another format then HTM or HTML!
Is it possible to parse everything containing in the Text File Filter, but only download HTM and HTML?
So far I had no succes. When I uncheck eveything in the File Filter setting, except for HTM and HTML, only those get parsed! The PHP files can contain media I would like to download (images, movies etc.) and are index files that contain the links to the HTM and L files.
I don`t need the PHP files, because most of the time they`re trouble, but would like to donwload the HTM and L files!

When you download a PHP or an ASP site, Offline Explorer saves all files as HTMLs on your hard disk and they contain no PHP code at all.

If you mean to skip PHP files (not download them), but parse them, then this is a problem, because you cannot parse a file if it is not downloaded.

I know the PHP files are actually in HTML format. But most of the time it`s a mess. All files still have the PHP extension and even some parameters behind the extension after downloading. They mostly get loaded in one directory, if no advanced options are set, and overload if prevent overload is not set.
Maybe this is handy implementing in a new version? Parse all, but only save the checked ones. Now I used the "DeleteAfterParsing=.php" command, wich works quiet allright!

I also noticed that in the manual the Undocumented Registry values section contains the ParsingMax key. But this value is not in the registry. In the registry is the ParsePause key, but this is not explained in the manual. Maybe it`s time to update the manual?

Can you also tell me what the status is of the Dutch translation of OEP? I saw that someone is working on it.

Yes, DeleteAfterParsing= command was implemented exactly for the things that you need.

The ParsingMax value should be added manually to the Registry. Offline Explorer will read and use it. ParsePause is not used anymore and it will be removed from the next version.

The Dutch translation is not up to date and the translator is not yet responding my E-mails, unfortunately.

That`s too bad.
If you want I can give it a try. You can send me all necessary info so I can check whether I can help you out, or not.

The email left in this forum is ok!
You should have 2 emailadresses of me, on regarding parsing MOV files. Please delete that on! I sent it from a wrong account.
