    So I was trying out automator to make this project go faster. I was trying to get all of the url links on a webpage that have an attatchment to dowload to a specific folder on a desktop. Anyone know the order in safari autamator actions to get this to happen? Is it possible with out writing my own code, cause I can't write code. :eek:

    This should be doable in Automator.

    1. Get Safari to the URL you want to extract links from
    2. Link this to the action that gets links
    3. Link this to the download links action
    What I don't know how to do is to select only links with an attachment.:confused:

    Well I know that there is a filter option for the url but I just can't seem to get it to work. I will keep pluggin away.
