I am using MetaProducts Offline Explorere Pro 4.0.
I downloaded a site and needed to export it.
I had checked off standard extensions for files with known file types.
The problem I have seems to be with what it identifies as a "known file type". It added .htm to multi-media files such as .mov, .rm and .wmv, so that after the export they are named .mov.htm, .rm.htm and .wmv.htm.
Is there a way to change the options so that MetaPro recognizes multi-media files such as the above as standard file types?
Thank you in advance,
Once again I exported a project to resolve problems with case sensitivity and came across problems with file extensions being added to multi-media files thereby making them inaccessible.
I am using MetProducts Offline Explorer Pro 3.8
Site downloaded: http://www.pco-bcp.gc.ca
I used the same export settings as before:
Filenames format: keep as-is
Use standard extensions for files with known file types
Preserve online links
Once the project is exported multi-media files such as .mov, .rm, .wmv have .htm added and no longer work.
As well, it adds .htm to graphics and other files, but on an inconsistent basis. Here's a list of files which have had .htm added and now no longer work:
.mov, .wmv, .rm, .css, .jpg, .gif, .xml, .wma, .mso, .wmf, .js, .swf, .pdf
Last time I renamed all the files, did search and replaces to change the coding for the "new" files names. Overall, it was a time consuming process.
Is there a shorter, more direct way to resolve this problem?
If not, could you please consider upgrading the export features in the near future? It would be great if there was a list of standard extensions which require .htm to be added to the file name (such as .asp) and a list of those standard extensions which do not require .htm to be added to the file name (such as multi-media files).
