Using Starting directory...

Hello,

I'm using and loving OE Explorer Pro. I've set up a template for a certain website. I update it once a week but I'm having trouble with one thing and I think I'm doing it wrong. I pick certain links on this website to download using the command "+ Offline Explorer: Download current page" in IE. Think of the links as sub-folders like www.server.com/members/folderA. Except the website gotten cute by splitting the contents into two subfolders like www.server.com/members/folderA/folder1 and www.server.com/members/folderA/folder2. Now when I use the "Download current page" I get this: "www.server.com/members/folderA/default.htm. In the template I used the Ctrl-S in the Directory filter. Now the problem is I get everything in folderA/folder1 but nothing from folderA/folder2. I noticed that Ctrl-S inserts ^/ so I tried ^../ and ^/../ but it didn't work because it still didn't download anything from folderA/folder2 and OE did download from folderB, folderC, etc...

I think the website and others are fighting against problem like OE. I don't know why though.

What am I doing wrong?

Can you please try to change it to ^/folderA/ and see if this helps. If not, please send me more details about the site and its links.

Thank you!

Hi Oleg,

Do I put this in the Directory filter's Include section? I still get downloads from other folders (i.e. folderB, folderC, etc...). Where should I put this filter?

Hi Oleg,

Never mind my last posting. It works if I take out folder1 when I use Ctrl-S. Ctrl-S put in ^/folderA/folder1 and I remove folder1 to make it ^/folderA and it works beautifully. What do I put in the template? ^/../ and ^../ both do not work. I know ../ is really a Windows command but can you add something to the Template code to make it work like a DOS prompt command.

Thanks

Well, I am not sure about this. This will be too rarely used. It is good that it works for you now.

Oleg.
