Snap a website

Postby thusgaard » Wed Feb 13, 2013 8:07 pm

Hi is there anyway to take snaps of a website:
1. a specific page?
2. 2 or 3 links deep?

I need it to run as a cron job.

J;-)

How about the Firefox extension DownloadThemAll? Looks like it might do what you want, but no, I haven't tried it myself.

In Firefox you can go to Tools --> Web Developer --> Page Source, and it will display the source for the page being viewed. From there you can use File --> Save As to save the code.
You will probably have to check the code to get the URLs of any images it loads, and download these separately if you want them.

Well, what do you mean by snapshot--the text, markup and images of the web page, or do you mean you want to take a screenshot of the web page?
