Is there a url macro for the current url's referrer? One that works in url substitutions? I'd find it awful handy...

URL Macros work for referers only in the URLs field of the Project Properties.

Regarding your request about URL Substituites - please let me know what exactly you need.

Thank you!

I don't need to set the referrer, I need to fetch it. Like right-clicking a url in the queue. A token such as {:referrer} to get the current url's referrer in filters and url substitutions would be great for fetching websites such as deviantART which store artist submissions on several generic machine names.

Do you need the full URL in the referer or just parts of it, like {:refserver} {:refpath} {:refFile} {:refrequest} ?

Broken into pieces like {:refserver} {:refpath} {:refFile} {:refrequest} would be awesome! One could always string them back together if they needed the complete referrer. I'm specifically trying to get the referring server.

OK. I implemented {:refserver}, {:refdir} and {:reffilename} so far.

Terrific! I have to say, in all the years I've owned OE I've never regretted choosing it as my site ripper. OE's technical support is the best.
