I see in the FileCopies section of the project properties that you can have multiple copies saved as you like.

My question, if I'm downloading www.aserver.com/image1.gif, can I make the image1.gif become 2006053115_Image1.gif.

Basically a year, month, day, time prefix.

Thanks for a great product.

Well, you can do this only if you update the downloaded .gif file - its previous version will be renamed.

Oleg,
Thanks for your answer. This would be a valuable added option (for me anyway :)
If you ever get board and wonder what next... then maybe this could be added.

Thanks again.

You can use URL Substitutes for that.

I'm not sure what you mean. Can you please explain or provide a reference?
Thanks!

For example, the following rule should work in Properties - Advanced - URL Substitutes:

URL:
image*.gif
Replace:
image
With:
{:0day}{:0month}{:year}-image

Oleg,
From my tests, URL substitutes only work by changing the url to download, not the filename of the downloaded file. For example, I want to rename the downloaded file "file1.gif" to 2006053112_Filename.gif

Is this possible?
Thanks!

You need to uncheck the rule. This means that only filenames will change, not the URLs that Offline Explorer downloads.

I think I'm still bad at explaining what I'm trying to do:

The url and file name that I'm downloading will never change. I want the file that is downloaded to be changed (file name) after it is downloaded. From File1.gif to 2006060215_File.gif (this change will occur only after the download... basically a renaming procedure when the download is complete.

Thanks!

Yes, this is what I am talking about - uncheck the rule and it will work only after the original (unchanged) URL will be loaded - the file will be renamed.

Oleg,

Thanks for your help. Your tip works great.

Is there any way to make the year 4 digits? 2006 instead of 06?

I'm using {:year} currently.

Bryan
Oleg Chernavin 06/06/2006 02:05 am
Yes, use {:longyear}. You can read about all URL Macros in the Help file.

Hello Oleg,

Did this change with the release of 4.3.2421?

Because now no matter if I check or uncheck the rule in the URL substitutions, OE Pro tries to substitue the request and comes back with 404 Not Found.

Previously if I left the rule unchecked, it would only modify the downloaded file name (which is what I want).

Thanks!
Bryan

Oleg,

Here are the details for the above post:

URL: http://www.srh.noaa.gov/ridge/Conus/RadarImg/centgrtlakes_radaronly.gif
Replace: centgrtlakes_radaronly.gif
With: US Cent Great Lakes/{:longyear}_{:0month)_{:0day}_{:0hour){:0minute)_Cent Great Lakes.gif

Basically forcing the new file name and into a new folder with date info in front of the file name....

I've added the rule and uncheck the checkbox.

I think, this happens because the Web page on yor disk contains the changed filename - you have to redownload the site.

Oleg, as far as I can tell, I'm doing what I previously did. I've copied my project and posted here. Can you see why it is not downloading and renaming the downloaded image?

Thanks!
Bryan

This is simple to fix - change all ) symbols in the rule to }:

US_Cent_Great_Lakes/{:longyear}_{:0month}_{:0day}_{:0hour}{:0minute}_CentGreatLakes.gif
