me again, i thought it might be better to specify better. i want to downlaod the thumbnails of royality free pictures to a certain subject, so i type in my keywords and the results are given back on pages

http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=Browse&Cache=1d906ebf881c4ae4755fe69d17468130&page=1

to

http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=Browse&Cache=1d906ebf881c4ae4755fe69d17468130&page=275


i want OE to download for me all the thumbnails on all this 275 URLs, which he will find starting from the first link because they link to the next ones of course. i thought about giving him

http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=Browse&Cache=1d906ebf881c4ae4755fe69d17468130&page=1

as the start URL and then telling him to just taks into consideration further URLS that have
http://www.istockphoto.com/file_search.php?action=Browse&Cache=1d906ebf881c4ae4755fe69d17468130&page=

(without pagenumber set in the end of the term). but how can i include URL keyphrase? i can just exclude URLs, why cant i include to restrict him to certain ones, i hope this works and i just dont know how yet :)) and also to consider: the pics are placed on server called www1.istockphoto.com this must also be considered in the "programming" of OE.


please tell me if this works, because this would make the program a valuable tool for graphic designers ;)

thanks
sofian


ps: in the best

Please use URL Filters - Filename section - Included keywords list. Add:

file_search.php?action=Browse&Cache=1d906ebf881c4ae4755fe69d17468130&page=*

This should work.

well it doesnt. can you try on exactly this example how you would do this successfully and tell me the exact options i need in the whole settings? i have to use page1 as starting page as far as i know, and at the images i have to choose download with url filter settings, and there i typed in your line but hesanitized_by_modx& #180s only checking 8 pages no download of pictures (the pictures have a different filename, so i think it cant work like this, the filename section is not the right one to use i guess, it should be an URL keywords include list, but there is none, just exclusion). maybe you can figure out, and if this is not possible yet to think about making it possible in the future, like i said, for designers its worth a lot.

thanks,
sofian

Use File Filters - Images to allow downloading them from any site. I opened the page you mentioned above in a browser and saw the following:

Search results:
The search query you entered did not find any matching results.

thanks oleg, i was in vacation for 5 weeks and came back now.

the link might exist just for a certain time, i dont know how istock is exactly arranging their internal workflow. i read now that OEpro can use macros in the URL box, so i will try to use the URL and let the page=1 by macro being processed up to 34 or whatever. with this it should work somehow, i?ll keep you informed, now i anyway have to buy a version, i like this program :)

Unfortunately, macros like {:1..34} will not work in URL Filters keywords. I would suggest you to use:

...page=[1-9]*
