Problem to adjust OE 6.2 for downloading

I downloaded an URL, mostly manually to avoid downloading unwanted pages. But I'd like to add some more pages automatically.

I downloaded all pages e.g:
http://.../123.html
http://.../124.html
http://.../125.html
....

All these pages have links to pages I didn't download but like to download automatically:
http://.../123.html?print
http://.../124.html?print
http://.../125.html?print
....


How can I make OE download the pages with the file extension " html?print " without downloading the other pages I deliberately skipped during download?

Thank you!

You may use URL Filters - Filename section in the Project Properties dialog. For example, adding to the Included list:

?print

Will restrict loading only these links.

Thank you for your reply!
Alas, it didnt work: I put ?print to the Included list and unchecked the level value box - OE only downloaded the one html?print-file linked from the very first page.

Has the problem something to do with the fact that I downloaded the very first page with level 0 setting and then downloaded all the other html-files manually? But on the other hand all files that I downloaded manually are linked with each other.

I thought you used a kind of URL Macro to download all these pages, like:

http://.../{:123..999}.html

No, I didn't use a Macro - I only wanted to download certain links. I downloaded the very first page (Level Limit 0). Then I selected some download links in the Levels tab and clicked the Download button. Then I opened a new branch in the Levels tab and repeated selecting and downloading links....

Well, may I propose a new feature for OE?
Next to the Projects, Map and Levels tab a new tab in which all downloaded files AND non-downloaded files appear in a column. This new tab should have the possibility of sorting the files by name, file extension, date etc..
I am sure this feature will be of great help for anybody who likes to select their download links manually.

I see, downloading from Levels will not follow links from these pages.

Yes, we plan to make a full database that shows all files (including skipped and missing ones - with a reason) and a dialog that displays the lists and dependencies.

Thank you!
