Export MHT - some links remain absolute URL

06/21/2007 05:07 pm
I am talking about links that are part of the downloaded project - Not links that point outside the requested server and associated URL filters...

It appears that IE7 (WinXP SP2) is caching some information that Offline Explorer is tapping into during the Export process (incorrectly).

I did clear my temporary internet files cache, etc....

Sequence of events:

1. Downloaded project

2. Browsed offline (worked great - still does)

3. Exported as standard local export

4. Accessed the exported copy
4.a. This worked intermittently - See message about CRLF -> LF issues

5. PROBLEM - Exported MHT
5.a. Level 1 and Level 2 are fine
5.b. On Level 3:
- any links I accessed in step 4 show up as absolute URL's to original website
- any links I skipped in step 4 show up as relative URL's

6. Exported CHM
6.a Everthing works great there

I tried the MHT Export multiple times, with every combination of export settings possible. Same problem every time....

Thank you,

Can you also give me a particular example of the page and links from it which were downloaded, but translated incorrectly?

Thank you!

Oleg, I'll let you keep playing with the same one:

No problems on the main entry page:

No problems on this second level page:

Link problems start showing up on this third level page:

But, like I stated above - only those links I accessed in Step 4 gave the problem of resolving to the internet instead of to the locally captured site reference.

Thank you,

I tried to open this site, but it doesn't respond.
