    Anybody know if it is possible to download PDFs (for example) from a list of URLs?

    I tried to pose this question to the scrapebox forum, but apparently there have been 2 registration attempts from my IP in the past 24 hours? :confused: lol.

    Any guidance is seriously appreciated.

    You have a list of direct links to the PDF's, or there are multiple PDF's on each url?

    ah ha! So clever!

    I had to go down a bit of a rabbit hole to figure out what you meant, but now that I'm out the other side, I'm so impressed. I'll need to get my list better sorted out, but in the basic, your command works perfectly.

    You've taught me to fish man. Thanks a bunch!

    seems you found a solution, but to your first question, no Scrapebox will not actually download the pdf files.
