So here are 2 websites I try to download

http://www.vanishingpoint.ca/
http://www.forgotten-ny.com/

Towards the end of downloading either of them, I will then notice that OE starts to download random pages and media from wikipedia and wikimedia. It just keeps going and going and you eventually notice it try''s to download every single wiki-related main site, even non-english sites. And as far as I know there are no links of any kind on either of these sites to any wiki site. I tried to put in the URL filter setting "http://*wiki*" and hoped that would help with stopping the download but it didn''t. What can I do to stop downloading from the wiki sites?

The easiest way is to allow downloading only from the starting server in URL Filters - Server section. Also, please see if File Filters categories use "Load using URL Filters settings" in the Location box.

Now I am having a slightly different problem. I want to download http://www.infiltration.org/ and when I do it it also downloads http://infiltration.org/ which I do not need since that has the same data, so I then tell it to just download the server http://www.infiltration.org/ yet it still downloads http://infiltration.org/

Please open the Properties dialog - Parsing section, click URL Substitutes and add the rule:

URL:
http://infiltration.org/*
Replace:
http://infiltration.org/*
With:
http://www.infiltration.org/*

This will make the download correct with no duplicates.

Oleg.
