Hi All
I was wondering if it is possable to save a website like this one to read offline and all the links on the board work? I'm a fan of a certain online game messageboard with a lot of helpful guides on it but dont have the time to read them all while at work and dont have the net at home. I cant play the game yet but still would like to keep up on the new stuff going on. any ideas on how to do this?

You can do it with IE 7 only...


Open Internet Explorer 7.0 and go to a webpage that you would like to be able to visit offline.


Choose the "Favorites" menu and click on "Add to Favorites" to bring up the "Add Favorite" dialog box. Rename the webpage if you would like by keying in the name in the "Name" box.

Click to check the box before "Make available offline" in the "Add Favorite" dialog box. When you do this, the "Customize" button to the right of the statement will become accessible.


Click the "Customize" button to bring up the "Offline Favorite Wizard." This is where you will set up the web page to be accessible offline. Click the "Next" button to begin the wizard.

Step 5

Verify that the name and URL of the webpage you want to make available offline is correct. If it isn't correct, press the "Cancel" button in the "Offline Favorite Wizard" to return back to the "Add Favorite" dialog box where you can make any corrections.


Decide if you want to make the links from the webpage available offline, as well, and click the corresponding "No" or "Yes" radio buttons. If you select "Yes," you can now specify how many pages, or levels, deep you want to set the links offline. Click the "Next" button to move on to the next step in the wizard.


Select whether you want to synchronize the offline web page with online changes only when you tell it to or on a certain schedule. If you choose the option of a schedule, the next page will take you to a place where you can set up that schedule. Click the "Next" button to move on to this page or to move on to the final page which will ask you to input a password, if required, for the site. The "Finish" button and the "OK" button will close the "Offline Favorite Wizard" and "Add Favorite" dialog boxes and add the web page to your favorites so you can browse it while offline.

Each site and each page is different, so there is no one-off solution. When you have tried each Save option in both IE and FireFox, maybe this can help your:

There are tools out there (just Google) which can print to a PDF file. How does that help you ? Well, you install this software. Then you go to the page you want to save, and you select the special designed "printer" from the selection. Obviously, it is not a normal printer, but it is a tool which can convert what would be your print output ... to ... a PDF file.

Great, no ?

And PDF's you can read with anything

You need a program for this, which allows you to specify to what depth you wish to save because links can lead to other links, pages etc.

It's a long time since I had one but if you Google something like "Website Saver" or "Website Extractor" you should be able to find a freebie if you are lucky.

Here's one but I can't vouch for it:

It all rests with whether you are allowed to install such a program at work.

arwenthecat,

The OP - rbs70 - is asking to save a website, not web page, for offline viewing. In any event I would be stunned if it was possible. If it was possible no one of sound mind would spend time and money investing in the internet only to have the whole web site copied by anyone for offline viewing.

It can be done - I had a prog on my ole W98 (possibly still have). Not popular with websites because downloading that amount hits their bandwidth. You usually have to specify the download level/depth. It then effectively re-assembles a linked website on your HD.

In any event, loading such a proggy on a machine at work might well be precluded.

EDIT.
I think this might be the one I had, when it was a freebie (and much simpler):
