Can OE retry download based on file size or server error?
|TomH||10/03/2015 01:34 pm|
Sometimes when I am downloading a desired webpage, the server response is an error. The html downloaded in this case contains markup that states "server error...page not found..." etc. When I attempt to download it a second time it works successfully. Obviously this is a glitch on the server that I am downloading from, and not something that OE is causing. However, I would like OE to recognize the "server error" and attempt to download the page until it is successful - perhaps with a limit of 100 attempts. Is this possible with OE? How do I setup the project to recognize a server error so that it retries the download?
I did note that a "successful" download has a file size of 33KB or more. A "server error" download produces a file size of just 4KB. Intuitively, could the file size be used as a trigger to tell OE to retry the download? That would be a cool feature.
ps I also emailed tech support this same question. If tech support wants, please post your answer here for the other users.

|Thank you very much for this idea! We added it to 7.0 version:
You can now use Content Filters to define words to search for and retry if they are found.
Please let me know how it works for you.
