Blog sites with "auto-scroll" feature don't work after OE downloads them...

My wife noticed that after downloading a blog site that has an "auto-scroll" feature, all the files appear to be downloaded but the "auto-scroll" feature doesn't work which makes navigating the site complicated and impossible in a lot of cases.

Auto-scroll is when pages are automatically loaded as the reader scrolls. It will keep doing this so you don't have to keep clicking the next button. Some themes have this feature and some don't.

An example site:

After downloading this site, at the bottom of the first page, you will only see a small square with the text "The End". The auto-scroll does work if you browse the live site using the browser in OE.

The only way to partially navigate sites like this is to use the archive feature of the site and go day-by-day... but only for the first page of the archive (like the first page of the site).

It looks like OE is doing something to the JavaScript which is breaking this feature.

I did enable the "Evaluate scripts calculations" in the Parse section of that site's properties to see if that would fix the problem but it didn't make a difference.

I forgot to mention that this is using Offline Explorer Pro 6.0.3666 on Windows 7 64-bit.

Perhaps, some script or style was not loaded. I would suggest you to 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.
