How do you extract an entire website with Catscradle?

Do you have to extract each single file separately or can you also extract an entire website at once?

Rather use an "offline viewer". Feb 18, 2004

I wasn't aware that CatsCradle offers this feature. I suggest you use what is known as an "offline viewer" to download the entire web site. Personally I prefer Webstripper (which is adware).

I suppose Feb 18, 2004

you are going to translate a website by extracting the content from the server.
This is not the correct way. It is quite possible, that you omit some parts of the site and it is also quite possible that something goes wrong when the translated text will be put back on the server.
The only correct way is to translate FILES - you should get them from your customer.
If I am wrong, please forget this message.
Best regards
Andrzej

I agree. If you're going to do a translation on the files, ask the client to give you the files (in zipped format, possibly).

Extraction Feb 18, 2004

By extraction, do you mean to download a whole website from a server?

In this case I have to disappoint you: You either have to download every file manually, or use the browser that Samuel suggested.

On the other hand, I agree with the others. It is always better to ask the client for all the necessary files. This is the safest way.

get files from client Feb 18, 2004

I agree, it's always safer to get files from the client, but in this case, what kind of files does one need to request?
Is it the complete webpage or the htm files only?
