JDownloader2 question...

Does anyone here use JDownloader2?

I want to grab a bunch of image files from a website, and I would like to be able to enter a range of numbered URLs, like...


...without having to enter them individually.

What I'd like to be able to do is enter a single URL with a range, say, 0001 to 0600, and then have it download all of the files.

Back when I was using Windows 98, I had a download manager (the name of which I can't recall) that would allow to me to do that, and I would assume that a program like JDownloader would as well, since it would be extremely useful.

(PS, if anyone is curious, the website I want to do this with is wishbookweb.com. The site is kind of a pain in the ass to use, and I want to make my own custom .cbz catalog files with just things like action figures, video games, and electronics, so I don't have to flip through hundreds of pages of linens and coffee makers to find what I'm looking for.)

At a quick look, I don't see a way. There might be an extension that would facilitate that. Personally, I'd probably just use Excel or some such program to create the links needed, copy/paste into jdownloader.

Use IDM for this task. It has a "batch download" option which will do what you want to do. JDownloader is a bloated, slow, buggy mess, and I stopped using it over 10 years ago. IDM does not require a million resources, .NET, or any other bloated crap. It just runs, is lean, and does its job extremely well.
