(Says the lurker coming out of the shadows) I've been really happy with HTTrack: http://www.httrack.com/ Freely distributable open source. -T Tobias Eigen tobias at kabissa.org Kabissa - space for change in Africa http://www.kabissa.org -----Original Message----- From: thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-admin at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Kathleen Heytink Sent: Wednesday, January 22, 2003 10:34 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Tool for Downloading web sites I know some people have asked about a tool to download databased web sites. Since I found a pretty good one that is reasonable product, I thought I'd pass it along. <tip type="Web Utilities" author="Kath Heytink"> The tool is called Web copier from MaximumSoft http://www.maximumsoft.com/downloads/index.html You provide the URL and it downloads all the pages it finds at that URL by following internal links. It creates static pages out of all the dynamic pages, names them with a number, then changes all the links to match. </tip> I used the free (no longer available ) lite version that I had downloaded some time ago, but never used. I was able to download my entire site, complete with graphics and every dynamic page. All the internal links work. The only thing that doesn't work is the search - of course. I was able to burn the site to CD for our CEO to take to the National Sales meeting - where they will not have internet access during the presentations. Very Nice. There is a 30 free trial for the new version and the cost is $30 - very reasonable for such a handy tool. I have no affiliation to Maximumsoft. I'm just a happy customer - who will be putting in a PO request for the new version - and I thought I'd pass the info along. -- Kath ... work --> www.winebow.com home --> www.cyber-kat.com --> topkat at cyber-kat.com -- -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
