Question: Hi, How do you use LISTS function? Thanks.
Answer: The list function allows you to download a list of web sites or web site pages. You can add the URLs manually, or import lists by drag and drop, even from your browser URL bar. The application supports both file and text drops. Then you can set a list name for the URLs of your choice to tell them apart. To download a list of URLs just click on the URL pull-down button on the right of the URL text and select the list name.
This function is useful for downloading set of pages in order to archive them. Downloading whole sites is not really what it was designed for since it can take a very long time from a desktop computer with a regular internet connection.
If you are viewing a Web site with your browser and you decide that you would like to make a copy of it on your hard drive, you have to manually save each page as you view it along with embedded pictures, sounds and so on.
This can be a very long and tedious process, and in many cases it's more trouble than it's worth. It doesn't have to be that way, however, as Web Dumper makes this whole process very fast and easy.
With Web Dumper you can download entire Websites off of the Internet, and save them on your hard drive for later offline browsing.
Downloaded Web sites are saved on your hard drive with their directory structure intact. Web Dumper automatically downloads HTML documents along with their embedded pictures, sounds, movies and so on while it screens them to look for any enclosed links to other documents.
Web Dumper lets you select which kinds of file you want to be dumped between more than 60 available standard types, the folder depth level, how links must be processed and if it must re-link your HTML documents for offline browsing.
