Yes, just put the url in the file list, and set the output filter to write to a new file.

Hmmm
Did you actually try it?
The result is always blank, while option "analyze file" produces "Internet error 0" message.

is not a file. It's a remote folder.

TP requires a list of files or a wildcard to be specified.

But can TP even input files over TSL or SSL ?

And how do we know that any files in that folder are free from malware?

I know that, yet I was asking about downloading web-page (not a file). I cannot agree TP needs just files as I successfully downloaded web-pages with the links similar to the one you see above. The problem is just with some pages and this is one of them. I guess the matter is secure protocol used (https) but not for sure.

Yes, TextPipe can download any url. It only checks for :// in the string, so https should still work.

No idea why https is not working.

I also have issues with accessing sites using https

It seems like Textpipe is simply ignoring filenames beginning with https as there is no file input record created in the status tab when processing.
Furthermore, it skips these filenames in a split second (no time for even sending the request to the server).

Sometimes a https website can be accessed using http, if http resolves to https, but not always...

Here are a couple of restaurant sites for example:
testing in a browser...

--> This works:

http://seasalteatery.wordpress.com
resolves to
https://seasalteatery.wordpress.com
200 OK
Textpipe can access this website using filename: http://seasalteatery.wordpress.com


-->This does not work:

http://www.spoonandstable.com
resolves to
https://www.spoonandstable.com
301 moved permanently
Textpipe can not access this website using filename: http://www.spoonandstable.com
This is what is received:
<html>
<head><title>403 Forbidden</title></head>
<body bgcolor="white">
<center><h1>403 Forbidden</h1></center>
<hr><center>nginx</center>
</body>
</html>


Finally however, the problem really "seems" to be that Textpipes isn't even attempting to make a server request for https.

I have confirmed the https redirection issue, and updated the code for Windows 10 where it now works perfectly.

Thanks for fix Simon,

But this does not fix the bigger issue where https urls are skipped all together (unless this has been fixed since TP v8.9.9).
They simply are not even logged during processing the input file list. i.e. original request from nikolas1612 for https://sev.life/

Thanks - this was still an issue, and took a little bit to get it working.

Now it's all ready for TextPipe 10.0!
