In general, if you want to download from a limited amount of links on a website - you add that entire website to the "Excluded URLs" like this:

chinesedrama\.info

And then add filters to the "Included URLs" that will cover all the pages you want.

In your case, if you want only drama and movies, I would use the following Starting URLs:

http://www.chinesedrama.info/p/movie-list.html
http://www.chinesedrama.info/p/drama-list.html

Since they have links to all pages you need. Leave the Exploration type as it is - Regular Site -> Entire site. Use the following Expressions in the "Included URLs":

chinesedrama\.info/\d+/\d+/(web-)?drama-[^/]+\.html$
chinesedrama\.info/\d+/\d+/movie-[^/]+\.html$

Basically that's it. You can also configure Extreme Picture Finder to save pictures from different movies and drama into separate folders using "Expert" mode in the "Sub-folders" section. Just like I did in this project:

chinesedrama.info - movie and drama

Right-click the above link, click "Save link as..." and then run the downloaded file.

Thank you for the help ^^. I am really confused about the regular expressions. I'll try to learn them on my own. Btw, I downloaded the images but some images are not downloaded as the site has toggle function to display more images. How can I download the images from the toggle function

Here is an example link:
http://www.chinesedrama.info/2019/01/dr ... ulder.html

they belong to these containers
<div id = "posterheader">
<div id = "stillheader">

Thank you!

I think you need to add the following filter to the "Included URLs":

Hi I included the filter to the included urls but the files downloaded from the filter does not save in the same name folder. Thank you!

Please correct that filter with a more generic one:

googleusercontent\.com/

Also everything is saved into correct sub-folder for me. So I'll need an address of the page where images are not saved into sub-folders.
