Downloading ALL attached pictures of a forum?

  1. Aug 2, 2009 #1
    I need help Downloading ALL attached pictures of a forum, the pictures are posted on the website under \attachments. I have tried using Extremepicturefinder and picture ripper, but both programs have trouble following the links and threads. All of the pics are posted under a single category but in different threads. The only way I've found is downthemall but thats a grueling process of going through hundreds of threads! anyone have any ideas?

    Depends on the forum as some store them in the file system and some in the database. The latter would be very difficult. The owner likely wouldn't be happy if there are lots of files.

    FireFox has a plug-in called "download them All" try that and see if it works for you.

    You could also try Snap Links which is available for Firefox.
