Hi everyone, I almost have this figured out, but please give me a hand, I am using OEPro...

AN example of what I am trying to do is to DL everything from galleris realted to
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk25/

This issue involves trying to DL a group of images that have a parent directory that creates a 404.

so that if I paste:

http://www4.kinghost.com
or
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/
or
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/

In the URL's it does not work...


I understand that by pasting a URL such as

http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk25/

I can get all of the images in that particular gallery.

and that if I paste a chronological string of entries such as

http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk20/
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk21/
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk22/
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk23/
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk24/
http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk25/

In the URL field I can get all of those gallerries.

however, how do i code it so I can get the whole string of galleries in one entry..

It is close to the entry below.

http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk(20.25)

by the same token, how would I do that for the following

http://galleries.highdefcumswap.com/mgp72/

Thanks in advance, I know I ALMOST have this.

This is very easy to do. Offline Explorer Pro supports URL Macros to do enumerations, etc. You can read more about them in the Help file. In your example, the URL would look:

http://www4.kinghost.com/teen/besteens/atk{:20..25}/

Yes, we chose the {: combination, because it doesn't occur in real URLs.
