Hi Guys,

Anyone know of good software that allows you to download an entire site for offline viewing. I am rebuilding a couple of sites, and I am spending a lot of time working on them with out internet access, so being able to download the current versions and refer to them while I am offline would be great.

Thanks

Matt

Grab a decent ftp program (I like filezilla) and grab all the files direct from the server - that's really the only way to get the server-side smarts (e.g. php scripts). Replicate using MAMP on your own computer and away you go.

If you just want a HTML grab then site sucker works well

Acrobat Professional (part of my Adobe CS2) will download virtually a complete site as a large PDF. I've successfully used this method for the past few years.

Can you detail a few of the steps? I cannot locate the method in CS2 Help. Doesn't mean it isn't there... just my poor capabilities in search.
Ooops.. no need:
Adobe Acrobat Pro>Create .pdf>from Website>complete site
Duh.
