I believe you will get what you want if you

1) set up the download to use a macro

http://www.srigranth.org/servlet/gurbani.gurbani?Action=Page&Param={:1..1430}

2) click the "level limit" on and set to 0 (this will have the effect of OE Pro not following any links on the single page ... it will only download param=1, param=2 ... param=1430

Let me know if this works!

Hi I am using this macro as suggested

http://www.srigranth.org/servlet/gurbani.gurbani?Action=Page&Param={:1..1430}
click the "level limit" on and set to 0 (this will have the effect of OE Pro not following any links on the single page ... it will only download param=1, param=2 ... param=1430

My Problems:
the server has some security built in that after 25-30 pages or so, i download only the footer of the page. There might be ip banning involved. how can i circumvent that or add pauses between down loads

How can i rename the files to .htm

thanks for all help
with regards
Manny

I would suggest you to set 2-5 seconds delay between downloads in the Options dialog and use 1 connection there. This way you will emulate human browsing.

To add .htm extension to the downloaded files, use File | Export with the Standard Extensions box checked.
