File Type

The File Type section of the Settings dialog provides the following controls:

Filter

Use settings under this tab to specify which file types SiteSucker is allowed to download. (SiteSucker uses media type to identify different file types, since this is standard information included in the Internet headers.) The following options are available:

  • Allow All File Types - Download all files regardless of file type
  • Allow Specified File Types - Only download the specified file types
  • Disallow Specified File Types - Never download the specified file types

Note: SiteSucker always downloads HTML and CSS files regardless of this setting.

If the Allow Specified File Types or Disallow Specified File Types setting is selected, you can choose from the following options (shown with representative media types):

  • Archives - application/zip, application/tar, application/stuffit, ...
  • Audio - audio/aiff, audio/mp3, audio/wav, audio/au, ...
  • Images - image/jpeg, image/gif, image/tiff, image/png, ...
  • Video - video/avi, video/mpg, video/x-ms-asf, ...
  • Custom Types - as specified under the Custom Types tab

Custom Types and HTML Types

If the Custom Types option is selected under the Filter tab, then settings under the Custom Types tab let you specify which file types SiteSucker should allow or disallow.

Settings under the HTML Types tab let you specify which file types SiteSucker should treat as HTML. When SiteSucker downloads one of these files, it scans it for links.

HTMLTypes

To add a new file type to the Custom Types or HTML Types, click the Plus button and enter the new media type.

To remove file types, select the media types that you want to remove and click the Minus button.

To select a custom type to allow or disallow or a file type to treat as HTML, check the box next to the media type in the table.
