Thanks for the further feedback. I'd half forgotten that existed, I myself use the "Save Copy As" command which was added latter. The "general" Export was doing compatibility checks, but it lacked the context of knowing what the existing format was so it could only do basic checks on the new format (e.g. min / max colours). I've reworked the flow so it has the additional context and now it can run the full set of checks.

This will be present in or higher.

The "general" Export dialog flow is a little annoying so at some point I'll tweak that further.

Thank you for your help.

However while the warnings display when using "save as", it doesn't appear when using the "export wizard" feature.
WebCopy / Changing image route from URL ...
Last post by nanarumi - March 15, 2024, 08:38:18 AM
Hello everyone,
I've been using WebCopy recently for my website and I need insight on something.
Is there a way to change the image route setting before proceeding with the copy process?
Because I want to change the image route from URL link to local folder

Here is the code snippet from my downloaded HTML file.
<meta name="image" content="">
The local folder name is ZHvSjR5ZrsoxwKbJa3xmo.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the bug report. Warnings should have been displayed but there was a nice subtle bug causing them sometimes not to be displayed. However, there wasn't an explicit warning regarding swatch names, so I've added one of these too.

This will be present in or higher.

This is a problem with the editing components the Palette Editor uses, there seems to be an error in precision or rounding when converting between RGB and HSL. I can reproduce the issue, so just need to do some more diagnostics then come up with an appropriate fix.

WebCopy / newbie help with exclude rule
Last post by maphew - February 16, 2024, 08:12:15 PM
I'm having trouble constructing an exclusion rule pattern that does what I want.

I want to exlcude any url that starts with

In Edit Rule I have the expression ^http://www\.google\.com/url\?q.
I'm confused about which Compare type I should use. No matter which one I pick, the Rule Checker shows "Not Matched". What am I doing wrong?

That's great, looking forward to multi threaded crawling! This would make a huge difference.
WebCopy / hx-get attribute
Last post by rooot - February 02, 2024, 12:40:00 PM
Do you plan to support the hx-get attribute? It makes the browser issue a GET request to another URL and inserts the contents into the current page. This can also happen recursively, with those loaded contents in turn containing hx-get attributes that load contents from more URLs.

Explanation from here:

QuoteThe hx-get attribute will cause an element to issue a GET to the specified URL and swap the HTML into the DOM using a swap strategy:
  <div hx-get="/example">Get Some HTML</div>This example will cause the div to issue a GET to /example and swap the returned HTML into the innerHTML of the div.

Quote from: granimati on May 11, 2020, 11:10:09 PMI have a site that updates files about once every month I'd like to download frequently.

I'd like to make sure that I'm only downloading new or changed files, so I went to

I did the following selections in my current project:

  • The Save link information in project option should be set (General) - this is selected in General > Links
  • The Empty website folder before copy option should not be set (Copy) - this was in Folder Options
    The Always download latest version option should not be set (Advanced) - in Advanced as advertised

However, when I try to run the project again to see what's new and updated on the site, WebCopy creates duplicates of the files (example: filename.pdf and filename-1.pdf). I'd like to skip over the files I've already downloaded without creating these duplicate files, only downloading the latest files.

Hope that makes sense!
I understand your concern about WebCopy creating duplicate files when attempting to download only new or changed files from a website. To avoid the creation of duplicate files, you can try the following steps:

1. Enable the "Rename existing files" option: In the WebCopy project settings, navigate to the "File Options" section. Look for an option similar to "Rename existing files" or "Rename files with conflicts." Enable this option to ensure that files with conflicting names are automatically renamed instead of creating duplicates.

2. Adjust the "Rename format" settings: In the same "File Options" section, you may find an option to specify the format for renaming conflicting files. This allows you to customize how the files are renamed when conflicts occur. You can choose a format that includes a timestamp or a unique identifier to ensure that the renamed files are distinct from the originals.
