Hello, is there anyway to easily archive the contents of a website without Saving As on every page? I know Spiderweb was archived, I think by Aran. How was that accomplished?

Thnx
Scorpie-chan~!

Dude, don't worry about archiving.

No one likes your stuff anyways. Why would you want to save it?

Basically the easy way is to make a bot do it for you.

Could that horribly crush a server?

If I've understood correctly, then what you need is an offline browser or a web ripper or some such application. I've not used either, but there seem to be lots of freeware ones for Windows and Linux but none for Mac. Devonthink Pro apparently does the job too.

I think this is really wonderful.

wget is available for just about every OS, and has worked fine for me the times I've wanted to do such things.

I'd recommend wget too. The only reason PPP uses a lot more fancy stuff than just a bunch of files downloaded with wget is to count, format and properly link those posts. In fact, the next PPP run will likely be done with wget as well, processing the files for the database afterwards.

You can also get Firefox extensions that do this pretty effectively. I think I used a scrapbooking one to archive the website for one of my math classes.
