downloads from external weblinks
« on: February 18, 2021, 10:59:55 AM »
Hi, a newbie question maybe - I am only just starting out with website download but cannot find the answer to my question.

I am mainly looking to bulk download pdf documents and where these appear in the internal tab, they are being saved to the designated folder.
For a number of the websites though, the pdf's appear under the external tab, presumably because the pdf itself is hosted elsewhere?

Although there is a list of the available pdf documents (and you can click on them individually to open them) I cannot see how these documents can be downloaded as a batch to my local drive.
Otherwise this is an awesome programme - one that I have been looking for for a number of years - ever since webripper started failing.
Thanks in advance

Quick note:  If you need help configuring a project - email us: https://www.microsystools.com/home/contact.php

Meanwhile try enable this option before starting the website crawl: Scan website | Data collection |Verify external URLs

(If e.g. used images are hosted on external domains they are still downloaded to local disk. But in those cases A1WD knows they are part of the website even when using default settings.)

Thank you for the response. I've tried that and it doesn't seem to make any difference to the result that I get.
I will send an email to contact as requested to see if you can see were I am going wrong perhaps?

Just to repeat on here for the benefit of others - a huge thank you to Thomas for his off site support in resolving my issues.
On the strength of the support alone, I've now bought a licence and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to others considering using this software.
