Post subject:  How do I d/l from different directory levels all in one Task

I been searching the different forums to see if I can find help. I have found some hints but not exactly what Im looking for. I want to know if there is a way to use a task to download all pictures within different site directories. Here is my example;


http://*MAIN_DOMAIN*/DIR_LVL_A/DIR_LVL_ ... /PAGE.HTML


If I change to DIR_LVL_D2, DIR_LVL_D3, DIR_LVL_D4 and so on, there are more pics is there a way to make a task that will look in all the directories without me having to make multiple tasks? I hope I explained this clearly

Have you tried something like this in the URL on the Options Tab:

http://*main_domain*/DIR_LVL_A/DIR_LVL_ ... /DIR_LVL_D[1-4]/PAGE.HTML

That worked like a charm! I was close but you nailed it for me! Thanks a lot! Also what is the order of numbers? Is it 0-9 or 1-0?

Thanks! :D

Not sure what you mean by "order of numbers" but I would think 0-9 is correct. After 9 would come 10...

Thanks for your help. This has helped me a great deal.

Anyone else reading this;
I have something else to add to this.
I am trying to download a directory structure where each directory has a different word instead of number. It looks something like this;

http://*main_domain*/SUBDIR_NAME/DIR_NAME/

the DIR_NAME randomly changes. It is not sequential with numbers or letters. Is there any way for PicaLoader to search any subirectory under http://*main_domain*/SUBDIR_NAME/ and retrieve pics under there? ie.

http://www.cars.com/Makes/Honda/---.jpg
http://www.cars.com/Makes/Acura/---.jpg
http://www.cars.com/Makes/bmw/---.jpg
and so on...
