Site with Java navigation panel

10/04/2010 01:22 pm
I'm evaluating Offline Explorer with a site that uses a java tree-structure type navigation panel. There's not much point in posting a link, as it requires a login. It's kind of like the folders view in Windows Explorer.

When navigating the site manually, the URL doesn't change, although links in the pages will redirect to other pages on the same site.

When I try to download from this site, the main page works but for any other pages I get:

Document not found
This page is not available offline. It might have not been downloaded or it was removed by a user. Possible reasons for not being downloaded: URL was excluded due to Project settings, document was not available online during Project download or the download was stopped before being completed.

Is there a way to download pages from this kind of site?

Please try AutoSave feature - select the Project that partially downloaded the site, click the AutoSave button on the Internal Browser toolbar and then click Browse. Offline Explorer Pro should download missing files.

Hi Oleg,

Thank you for the prompt response! I have tried a few things this week.

I’ve tried using Autosave, however, it displays the first item on the menu in the Java nav panel, then a dialog box appears, entitled “Message from webpage” with the message: TOC ERROR: Invalid response returned by server.

Carrying out the same sequence of actions in the built-in browser, without using Autosave, works normally (i.e. the way I would expect it to work in any other browser).

As a workaround, I’ve found I can navigate to a particular page using the Java nav panel, right click on the page (in its own frame, not the Java nav panel), then choose “+ Offline Explorer: Download the current page”

This works, but it's a laborious process.

Any other tips?

Perhaps, I could come with some better solution, but I need to look at how exactly the links ae done on this site - I need access to it. If you want, I can E-mail you directly to the address you left in this forum.

Sure! I can send screenshots, etc.
