Project name

This name is displayed in the project tree.

Levels

Depth level. Shows how deep from the start page the links will be downloaded.
For example:
The page A refers to the pages B and C.

  • "Start page only (level 0)" — only the page A will be downloaded together with all its images, javascript, css.
  • "Start page and [1] level(s)" — the pages A, B, C will be downloaded together with all their images, javascript, css
  • "All levels" — the pages A, B, C will be downloaded together with all the pages linked to them no matter how deep the link will lead. Thus, "All levels" should be selected only when you have specified restrictions in the URL filters, for example, limit downloading to the "Start host", in this case the entire web site you specify will be downloaded

URL Filters

Protocol Filters

You can select from the list of protocols (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP) those via which downloading is permitted.

URL Filters

An URL consist of protocol, host name, filename on the host, query, fragment/anchor .

<Protocol>://<Host>/<Path>/<FileName>?<Query>#<Fragment>

Example: http://www.somehost.com/dir1/dir2/forum.php?a=1&submit=yes#some_anchor

Protocol Host Path Filename Query Fragment/anchor
http www.somehost.com dir1/dir2 forum.php a=1&submit=yes some_anchor

Let us see how URL Filters work in the following examples:

Let the Start page be http://www.myserver.com/dir1/dir2/forum.php

This filter permits downloading files only from the starting host and from the folders located below. It means that http://www.myserver.com/dir1/ will not be downloaded, while http://www.myserver.com/dir1/dir2/somedir/somefile.htm will.

This filter is similar to the previous one, except that it is forbidden to download files with the name *readme*

This filter permits downloading files from the starting host and from folders below the starting host. As well as the files located below http://www.someserver.com/folder1/folder2/, i.e. the file http://www.someserver.com/folder1/folder2/simple.htm will be downloaded as well as the file http://www.someserver.com/folder1/folder2/anotherfolder/

This filter permits downloading any files from the starting host and from any folders, except the files *faq*

This filter permits downloading all files and directories from the starting host.

This filter permits downloading all files and directories from any host.
