    I'm here, http://www.headfirstlabs.com/books/hfhtml/.

    I want to grab all the ZIP archives for all the chapters in the book--at once. Can SD5 do that? I'm pretty sure it can.. and I tried using the ADD FROM URL feature to do it, but I don't speak RegEx (yet) so my attempts were failures.

    Anyone know how to do that? I can grab them all manually of course.. and probably could have done so in the time it took me to post this ;), but I want to know how this is done in SD for the future.

    TIA

    If you use Firefox, you can install the FlashGot add-on. With this enabled, you can highlight multiple links and right click, choosing 'FlashGot Selection', which will send them to your specified download manager. :)

    SD5 can do it.

    First goto SD5, and choose "Add". You will see the "New Download" popup. Goto the link you posted, and copy the individual link location of all the chapters you need. Paste these links one and a time on the "New Download" window. That's it.
