Hello, i wanted to download the whole site http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org/ because i redesign it and want to catch all the pictures. But the site is not downloading fully, even with the most generous settings. Now i checked the log file and i saw entries like http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org//articles/meditation/yogic-yang-spiral-meditation.html

These files can of course not be download due to the double slash here: worldfederationofyoga.org//

I have no clue where it comes from. And i tried to remove the ending slash from my project settings, but it doesnt let me. Well it let me, but when i close them and open again, again the adress is http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org/ with slash, added automatically.

Can you give it a try and see if you can reproduce and solve the problem?

In most cases double-slashes are the result of web development errors. However sometimes they have some special meaning and reflect the web page contents.

This is why Offline Explorer keeps these URLs as they are designed while downloading.

The next version will have an improvement with such URLs - it will still download them, but no duplicates will be loaded, like:

http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org//articles/meditation/yogic-yang-spiral-meditation.html
http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org/articles/meditation/yogic-yang-spiral-meditation.html
http://www.worldfederationofyoga.org////articles/meditation/yogic-yang-spiral-meditation.html

Would it work if you use Project Properties dialog - URL Filters - Directory section. Add the following to the Excluded keywords list:
