Hey, I'm in search for a program that can download all the images from a specified thread on a forum including all of the pages withing that thread. Possibly some program out there than can search within thread ID's? It would need to be able to download picture embeds. I've tried a few programs with little success(webripper-crashes or randomly goes off to different pages/threads and only detects maybe 1 or 2 pages. Imageripper-just doesnt work with threads, download them all addon doesnt work either).

Anyone know of a good program that can achieve this task for me? Thanks

Yeah I know about that one, it isn't what i'm looking for though. That mirrors sites onto your hard drive or copies them page by page. Im looking for a program that can download the pictures from the a thread without me having to go page by page, because some of them have a lot of pages. I've tried bulk image uploader but i got a lot of garbage with it, random icons it didnt follow links. Webripper seems to be best, but it i would have to manually enter a lot of pages. Some programs like httrack allow urls from a file list. Webripper however does not.

Does anyone have a good program? x.x

Sounds like you are wanting your cake and being able to eat it to.
Looks like you will have to write your own app if you need that fine grained of control.

Haha, sure seems that way. Sounds like something for python. Maybe someone will come along and rescue the thread with an amazing app..maybe.

I found this but probably is still way to much.

You would need something that is scriptable and you would need to know or be able program how many pages the thread is.
If you could script it in a batch file or phython and just tell it to rip the images from the main page and tell it not to follow any links you could create a loop and keep adding a number to the thread name. Well at least on this forum that would work.
