OE duplicating downloads

Offline Explorer is duplicating the site that is being downloaded.

For example it downloads 2 versions

first version is: website.com

second version is: www.website.com

Even if the website is designed that way, is it possible to filter out one of the versions?

So I just get website.com or www.website.com but not both?

Yes, this is possible. Select the Project and click the Properties button. Go to the Parsing section and click the URL Substitutes. Add the following rule:

URL:
*
Replace:
http://www.website.com/
With:
http://website.com/

The above is when the starting URL is http://website.com/...

If it is www.website.com then use another rule:

URL:
*
Replace:
http://website.com/
With:
http://www.website.com/

Great, just another quick question.

If Im downloading a specific category, so the url looks like:

http://www.website.com/category/

In the URL Substitution section, do I have to then type in this:

URL:
*
Replace:
http://website.com/category/
With:
http://www.website.com/category/


or can I just leave it the way you said it? and it'll automatically know what to do?

URL:
*
Replace:
http://website.com/
With:
http://www.website.com/


Also, the URL: * is just for naming correct? Not anything important?

Yes, * is correct. No need to specify the directory, just the site name.
