I've got a whole pile of links to files in a text document, that I was hoping to download with igetter. What I did was put them in word, and save it as an html, then just load it in safari. I can click on the links fine, but igetter doesn't want to download all of them...

Any ideas?

Hello,
You can use the Safari's contextual menu function "Download all with iGetter" to process all web page links in iGetter. Or start iGetter and choose the same function from menu Tools -> Process Web Pages.

It's very possible that not all links point to files with extensions listed in the iGetter Integration preferences, so the method of clicks interception may not transfer all files to iGetter.

Okay, that doesn't really answer my question...

Lets say we have a file link, like say http://www.ctspgames.com/downloads/ptanksmac.sit which is for pocket tanks for mac.

Now, lets say I paste that link into microsoft word, and save it as a webpage, then load it through safari off my hardrive. I can click on the link and it loads fine. I can right click, and select download with igetter and it works fine. However, if I choose download all with igetter, nothing comes through.

Why? What should I do to make it work?

I also have this problem. Has there ever been a resolution?

When Safari saves a web page (as a page source) it saves the relative links as they are (i.e. downloads.html of http://igetter.net/downloads.html becomes file://<path>/downloads.html). And here the problem arises because iGetter can't process and download "file://" locations (since they appear to be on your HD). When you save a web page as a web archive Safari saves some extra information to know how to process relative links. iGetter reads what Safari link processor returns but it still contains relative to the "file://<local path>" links.

However, if the web page contains complete links as "http://fileavenue.com/file.ext" they will appear in the iGetter's Process Web Page list. You can make a test saving for example http://igetter.net/downloads.html.

iGetter works fine with Internet Explorer's archived pages since it shows the original root web page location instead of Safari's "file://<path to archive>/".

I understand your response, but the question is different.

This is a file with valid links saved as a web page by Microsoft word. It can be opened by any web browser.

The problem as themadthinker accurately described is this:

"I can click on the link and it loads fine. I can right click, and select download with igetter and it works fine. However, if I choose download all with igetter, nothing comes through."

These are valid links, not pointers to local files.

This could be a problem with Microsoft, but the links work fine for everything except the iGetter download all command.

Is there any way to load a list of valid html links from a plain text file into iGetter?

Thank you
