Yes, any content that was "captured" using ScrapBook can be viewed off-line since it was saved to your computer at the time of "capture."  At least for me it has worked that way, but I don't use it much anymore.

So be careful about capturing entire sites! Especially if you "capture" multiple layers deep.  Not only could this take up considerable storage space, the content you capture could be undesirable(think malware).

The ScrapBook :: Firefox Extension Home page may be of use to you.

This was the clue: :thumbup2:

accually capturing a whole site is a bonus 4 me as thats what i originaly wanted [but from other programs] but couldnt get any of them including page nest and httrack to fully work.

 

so 3 more question if i may:

--would scrap book copy a site that i must log into [which magazine]

--and, to copy a whole site, [but not follow external links], how many links deep should i set

-- and what are/should i copy styles?

 

i only need the reseach info from the Which site, not video, music, code etc etc

 

this is pretty good going as i only posted this request 10 mins before u responded

 

thanks

From the sound of it, you need to do a selective capture of some of the site content, not a site capture.  But I don't know the site or it's layout.  Without specifics, I can only respond in general terms.
 

  • If the site requires log-in before the contents can be viewed, then you would need to log-in before trying to capture the content.
  • I don't believe ScrapBook automatically discerns between external and internal links. Any depth you set above zero will capture links to the depth you choose.  In which case you would need to use the "In-depth Capture" filter option to stop the capture of external links.  As for how deep, depends on the depth of the nested pages.
  • Depends on what format the content(research info) is in(.doc, .txt, .PDF, etc.).  I would leave styles checked and from what you say you don't need, un-check everything else.

The ScrapBook :: Features (1) - "Capturing Features" page gives more detail on the methods to use for capturing.
