Hi,

Is it possible to store an enitre website for offline viewing (ie on a laptop in a tube tunnel!)?

I know you can sync a web page and save a number of levels deep, but this tends to be huge, since it wanders off into advertising links etc.

What about a plugin, maybe for Firefox, that saves all pages like this:

www.mywebsite.com/*.*

Any ideas?

Thanks

Simon

Hi Simon.
In the past I've used WinHTTrack for that. It is not a browser plug-in but a seperate freeware app.
There's a learning curve that takes a little practice but it's not overly difficult by any means.
I have numerous websites burned to cd, mostly tech stuff with downloads included, that I use it for.
Like all website copiers, it'll need firewall permission. Please respect the individual websites copyright restrictions when using it. :thumbsup:

Fortunately a linux wizard arrived and helped me, using his magic spell, 'wget'!

Very clever!
