I'm trying to figure out how to tell it which page to crawl, and I can't figure it out. The documentation states that it will download all links from a "top opened web page," but I don't know what that means?

For example, what would I do to download every direct link from my page at:

http://www.kan.org/6100

There doesn't seem to be any place to type or paste that into the "Process web page" window.

Thanks!

How to download URLs that point to scripts?

So I've figured out how to get a URL into iGetter. But how do I specify downloading of links that point to scripts? These URLs do not have an explicit file extension in them, so iGetter does not see them.

For example, iGetter does not see a link of the form:

http://www.llnl.gov/llnl-bin/WebPh?DB=ns&ns_server=ldap.llnl.gov&any=adams

Thanks!

Hello Waterbug,
iGetter Process Web Page is useful if you want to add more than one links from any web page to iGetter. As we can see from your example URLs, these are pages that include only html links without any downloadable URLs. iGetter can download any files even html, but you can't use it as a offline browser. Regarding the second example page, we saw only email links which iGetter can't add to its queue.

iGetter is designed mainly to download files as 'sit', 'bin', 'zip', etc. There are download links that redirect to another script page and then download starts automatically. In such cases you must switch on the iGetter Tools function 'Integrate with Internet browsers'. iGetter will intercept every automatically started download from your browser if its extension is listed in the iGetter Integration preferences. By default they are: sit, bin, hqx, zip, gz and tgz.

Regards,
iGetter Support
