Help - download images from .php

Author Message
Tim 10/7/2003 9:24:00 PM
I am trying to download images from a website that uses PHP.

A link on a thumbnail opens up a window with image.

The link
http://www.website.com/dir/show_whole.php?section=16&id=121

The source of the new window
<img alt="" width=600 height=800 border=0 src="getimage.php?big=yes§ion=16&id=121">

On a browser, that new window has a image. If I right click to save the image, the file name of the image is "getimage.jpg". But in OE, it is a big empty square with a missing image icon on the top left corner.

So is there a way to download the images?

Thanks.

It looks like an issue with the Project settings. If you don`t want to share the real site name here, could you send us your Project directly to support@metaproducts.com ?

Please select your Project, click Copy button and then paste it to the E-mail message.

I will see what is wrong there and let you know what needs to be changed.

Best regards,

Please use Offline Explorer Pro:

http://www.metaproducts.com/download/opsetup.exe

It works quite well with PHP-driven Web sites. If you will have problems, please let me know the URL of the forum.

I just checked the site and all images are located on the same server. Can you please give me your Project settings? Just select the Project, click Copy button on toolbar and then paste it to the forum message. I will see what is wrong.

You can use the Wizard to create the corresponding Project. It should be easy to do.

i used the template for download images only but even still the program goes thorugh each and every page can u help me out thanks
Oleg Chernavin 12/15/2004 3:19:00 AM
This is correct. You cannot get links to images without loading Web pages first. Please select that Project and click the Properties button on toolbar. If the File Filters | Text category is unchecked, then Web pages will be not saved to the disk.

http://www.peachez18.com/members/pictures.php?set_id=286 (gallery)

http://www.peachez18.com/members/pictures.php?image_id=20457&page=1 (individual photo)

Thanks any help would be great. I am using Offline Explorer Enterprise 3.4
Oleg Chernavin 2/24/2005 10:38:00 AM
I would suggest you to specify the username and password either in the URL:

http://user:password@www.peachez18.com/members/index.php

Or in the Project Properties dialog | Passwords section - keep all other parameters in the section by default.

Oleg

I have experienced strange things with a few php sites as well.
One I had access to recently generated a million lines of php and downloaded one image about every thousand lines. I gave up after trying all the tricks I have learnt from this forum. Another did the same thing but never loaded any images at all.

Is there some new trick I need to learn ?

Any ideas please ?

Thanks

I'm trying to do the same thing and it doesn't work. Has anyone figured it out with this downloader?
Oleg Chernavin 4/10/2006 4:15:09 AM
Please try to allow script calculations in the Project Properties dialog - Advanced section.
