Downloading a section of the forum

There is some forum. I need to download one section from it.

The addresses of section pages are:

http://www.somesite.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=3&topicdays=0&start=X

where X is a number of the topic that starts the corresponding section page. With each section page X increases by 32.

Each section page contains links to the topics, which look like:

http://www.somesite.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=Y&start=Z

where Y is a topic number. The topics are numbered sequentially in order around the forum.

Z is a number of the message that starts the corresponding topic page. With each topic page Z increases by 32. Number of pages in the topic can be arbitrary.

What settings do I need to put in the project properties page to download all the section pages and all pages of the topics available in the section? Thus it is desirable not to download other topics (not listed in this section), links to which can occur in the messages.

Thanks in advance

Please specify the starting page of the forum and in the Project Properties dialog - URL Filters - Filename section add two Included keywords:

viewforum.php
viewtopic.php

This should be enough to download the whole forum.
