General Help Downloading a Website
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:08:37 PM »
Hey there! I am very new and pretty dang noobish about all this. I am trying to figure out how to get a website downloaded and was hoping for some assistance. The website is So, I go into A1 Website Download, do the preset for SMF (which I believe it is according to the bottom of the website), then what? What else do I need to do? I want it to download all the attachments on each page and it needs to be logged in to my user name to do so. I also want it to stay on that domain and not follow some external link into internet oblivion. I am just hoping for some advice to make sure I get my settings right. I have looked at the guides and information but I know this is going to be a HUGE project and I don't want my computer to spend a couple of days working on it only to find that it didn't download any of the powerpoints or it somehow navigated off the site and is trying to download google or something like that. Sorry if this is a really dumb question!

Generally you just need to hit "Start scan" button after entering the forum domain and using any applicable quick presets.

If I understand your question correctly - you want to have attachments as well.

Are you using Windows version? If so:

Log in before starting crawl:

And then probably also use the "Scan website | quick presets" to also add other documents types

I believe above will work - but if you have trouble getting the project working, I will take a deeper look. It is generally simpler to download a forum that does not require login.
