    Is it possible to go to a website and download the index page and then automatically draw in all the other pages on the site?

    My memory says yes, but it also says I can't remember how :laugh:

    Is my memory just bad or bad and in error as well :tongue3:

    Might take a third-party program.

    Found a couple that run from $20-$50.

    Found this one that's free (http://personal1.iddeo.es/andresgarci/getleft/english/), but it only recognizes plain HTML, so I'm betting a lot of pages won't load properly.

    You might try this one: http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Vista/2865/wd.htm

    This one looks better: http://www.webreaper.net/

    I didn't see any particular features or add-ons in Firefox to do this; don't know if Internet Explorer will "crawl" or not, since I only use IE at work.

    I've never heard of a way to do this. . .

    In IE:

    To make the current Web page available offline
    1. On the Favorites menu, click Add to Favorites.
    2. Select the Make available offline check box.
    3. To specify a schedule for updating that page, and how much content to download, click Customize.
    4. Follow the instructions on your screen.
    [​IMG] Note
    • Before you go offline, make sure you have the latest version of your pages by clicking the Tools menu and then clicking Synchronize.

    Well, huh.

    I can't seem to find a similar functionality in Firefox.

    Don, thanks lots! The first one did just fine, already downloaded :thumbs:

    James, thanks for the tip, off to try that right now. That may have been what was sticking in the back of my mind.

    Thanks all!
