Link redirects problem

09/02/2012 03:34 am
I need to download all the files linked to a certain page.
The problem is that the links redirect.
For example:
-the page I want is:
But the 1st link on that page, when clicked, goes to: , instead of /dir1/file1.htm.

How do I download this page with unusual hierarchy?

Offline Explorer downloads sites in the way they are designed. So, if it redirects to, then it is where the file is actually located.

What is the problem with that?

If I try to download the file(s) using their "true" links I run into a problem: the page with the links which redirect to my files contains *many* links (tens of them). And the files' naming scheme is very irregular (file1, file_a, file_123 etc.). So I can't add just each and every link to my Project.

If I try to just download, then OE downloads many files besides those that are needed.

So what I need is for OE to download "just the files whose links are on a specific Internet page".

Still it is very unclear to me without looking at the site. Anyway, you may look at the URL Substitutes feature of the Project Properties dialog - Parsing section. It allows to change links on the fly.
