Save a whole website?

U2.com will be going through a change as they always do upon the release of a new album.

I wanted to save the current HTDAAB themed website. The whole website full of navigation just for my 'collection'.

Think this is possible? if so, how?

Thanks

You should just be able to Save Website As and make sure it's set to "complete". It usually saves the homepage htm, php, or whatever file and then a folder of files that contain the images and everything else.

Not the whole website though.

I tried BackStreet Browser on a smaller site of mine and it appears to work (canceled before it finished lest I suck the life out of my own bandwidth).

I'm not sure how it will work with a site like U2.com where authentication is involved in order to access content.

Well, you can if you go through and save each page, you just won't be able to navigate it as normal.

Although, I imagine if you have the right programmes and know how you could sort of 'reassemble' the site offline. But that would be rather labour intensive methinks.

The only way to totally save the website and ensure you'll never lose the info is to do 'print screen' and save pages/sections on wordpads or in paint. This is proof of what it looked like for you to save in your pictures or documents. I have tried to save whole sites before, but if they change, what I saved changed, and if they go down, there's nothing left but the icons.

^ You can save a whole web site as long as you actually have access to everything.
