I want to download all jpg files of URL "www.link.com". However the jpg download links start with "dl.link.com". When I use the following code, it does not download any file. I assume because the download links are different from the URL in the code. Any solution? Thanks.

wget -r -p -A .jpg" http://www.link.com

You didn't mention the OS you are running this on (Windows/XNIX). Please provide your OS and OS Version details. –  Kevin Fegan Mar 30 '13 at 7:56

Is there an example you could provide that I could test against? –  Vinayak Sep 7 '14 at 6:01

In the command line you provided:

wget -r -p -A .jpg" http://www.link.com

you have an unmatched double-quote-mark (") following .jpg
Perhaps you meant:

wget -r -p -A ".jpg" http://www.link.com


wget -r -p -A .jpg http://www.link.com
