i want to batch download a number of jpg files.
and following the instruction in the help, this is what i type in when creating a new URL:

URL: http://12345.com/qwert/s/abcde/2/images/[###].jpg
Batch Download: checked
From: 001
To: 042

but then an error appears, saying the composed URL is invalid.
and iGetter crashes.
any help?
thanks.

Hello Tony,
Your example URL should look like this:
http://12345.com/qwert/s/abcde/2/images/[#].jpg

iGetter recognizes only the "[#]" sign (without quotes) for the batch downloads pattern. Write a minimum number of digits at the "Digits" field (i.e. 3) if you want iGetter to add zeros until this value is reached. Then write From: 1 and To: 42. That's all, but make sure that you don't have an existing download that falls in the batch URL pattern. You must either delete it or download it first. Otherwise, you will receive an alert that the download is already in the queue. Unfortunately after this alert iGetter v2.4 crashes, but we will fix it in the next release.

Regards,
iGetter Support

Bug with number "0" in batch in iGetter 2.4

I can't get iGetter to include a file with sequence number "0" to work - it always complains the composed URL is invalid, and then it crashes. Have had no problem getting all others to work.
