If you want to save a complete web page IE6 will do it. Just go to File and choose Save As and take the option Complete Web Page. All the files will be placed in a folder and the links on the page will be renamed, but the page will work the same as the one on the web. If you want to duplicate a website in your computer and know how websites are constructed you can do it manually, but it's quite tedious. I have done it. I don't know if there is any application that will do it for you.

Greetings! :tazz:

Internet Explorer will do it for you. Try this.

1. Click on Favorites.
2. Add the page you want.
3. Check "Make available offline"

It will synchronise the page so that the whole thing works.

i think i did not state clearly enough. I mean i want to download whole webpages in a website to my hard drive. Even when i click a link while offline it still can direct it to the "clicked" webpage. I dun want to click and add all the pages manually. Can Firefox or IE do it? or i need software like Anloer or Surfoffline as recommended by phybyr0ptyk.

The problem there is in the way the links are made in the page. If you're downloading the page for direct linking to the site in your 'puter you have to make all the links "absolute", whereas most websites use "relative" linking. Also, many websites don't allow "hotlinking" so they won't work for you no matter what you do. It's easy enough to use the replace function in Notepad to make the links absolute, but you'll be lucky if they allow hotlinking.
