  1. Best answer
    All the major browsers have a function for saving a web page, including formatting, etc.

    An entire 'site'? Don't think that is possible.
    What constitutes a 'website'? The front page of Tom's has dozens of links to other pages, and each of those has dozens of links elsewhere. Some internal, some external.
    Where is the boundary between Tom's, and the rest of the internet?

    Thank you - my problem - I have a forum - the provider of that forum did an up grade and changed everything - Yes there will be lots of bells and whistles etc but I will be on a learning curve for that who knows how long -

    They saved all of my posts and categories but stripped every picture i had - they saved only text - ughhhhhh all of that work

    I have the forum on one pc that is the old one - all in tact - I want to save it just like it is and as I learn my way around the new upgraded one I can redo my 1,000 posts - I have many categories and maybe several pages within each category -

    It is not a blog - I call it a forum as there are members - they can contribute articles within the categories and members also can make replies / comments on the posts -

    I want to save it before my pc crashes or i reboot and lose it - I hope this helps with explaining and I hope you can help me - Please !! Thanks in advance

    Forum Address: http://souljourney.lefora.com

    this link will take you to the new upgraded forum - I am using windows 7 - I hope this is what you are asking for - it is a "free" forum

    I have a fairly new hp touch smart 600 pc maybe 2-3 yrs old but very good -- it does a lot more than I know how to tell it to do - (smile) - I still have the tab with the old version of the forum thank goodness but not sure how long it will stay there -

    also since I want to save the posts entries with pics etc would it be better to copy on dvd or just plain cd? if I go in to save each document // article in a word doc the pics will not save there so not sure how to save unless i copy / paste and send as email - but I just know there is a better way -

    thank y ou so much for any assistance you can provide
  5. I see. You are not runing your own server but using a 3rd party and thier software. I would copy everything in that old forum folder and contact lefora about how to make backups.

    Thank you but I am back to square one and still no answer -- My question from the beginning was HOW to copy -- and / or where can I find a tutorial that will give me step by step instructions to copy all info to dvd's or cd's
  7. I did find this on the net but no actual walkthru so I suggest you open a support ticket.

    You can get a complete static image of your forum at any given point in time via their backup utility at a cost of $40 USD. It comes in one of two forms:

    1) A static HTML representation of your forum complete with attachements/pictures that can be navigated even on your own computer -OR-
    2) A YAML version that - reportedly - can be "easily imported into databases".
