Hi,

I've been using EasyNews and a couple of other download sites that require passwords over the past year, and really appreciate iGetter's ability to queue and pause and put in pending - so I was happy to pay for it.

However, when it comes to password management, I feel it has dropped the ball. I like the concept of the 'site manager', where one can input an address with a password and username - however, I have to put in such specific addresses that the site manager becomes useless. In other words, for every download from these websites, I have to input my password manually using the 'Item Settings'.

Anyway, it's very frustrating to see that my browser can remember my password for a domain, but iGetter can't. Is there any way to correct this? If not, will we see an update in a future version?

I should add that I did add the two domain names mentioned earlier in regards to EasyNews, and downloads directly from the ZipManager work fine. Any other download from their website results in the 'waiting / connecting' status until I enter the password manually in 'Item Settings'.

Qlfwyyd,
Did you try to enter in the "Site Manager" only the host (the URL till ".com/") of any of your easynews.com downloads. When you select the "Advanced" tab panel of a new easynews download (or its "Items Settings" dialog) do you see your user name and password prefilled?

Thanks,
iGetter Support

I just had a re-look at the server that I was downloading from - and I had put in an address for the ZipManager... zipmanager.easynews.com and one for members.easynews.com BUT looking at some of my downloads I realised most of them from that page were coming from 'downloads.members.easynews.com'. So anybody else having this problem make sure you try and download from anywhere - then delete all the stuff back to the server.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
