24 The Convert Website Dialogue Box

The Convert Website Dialogue Box

24

Get entire site Rarely a good idea unless it is small and self contained (i.e. no links to other sites) 3 ways to limit download Get only 1 or 2 levels Stay on same path (will remain within root folder) Stay on same server (will go outside root folder but only convert links to sites on same server)

25 Converting Websites: Helpful Hints

25

If you need to capture large sections of a sprawling site or one that links to many other places, capture small sections or individual pages and pull them together with Create PDF>Multiple files Use the Settings button, Page Layout tab to size and scale large web pages Links in document still active for downloaded pages

Converting a website: 3 examples

Create PDF>From Website http://www.ext.colostate.edu Good example of a large, sprawling site Get Entire Site would be downloading for days 1 level gets you only the current page 2 levels pull ALL the links from this page, including navigation buttons at top (65 pages total) Stay On Same Path/Server not very useful as most links are ON this path (SOSP gives a 47 page doc) http://www.radon.org/ Good example of a Get Entire Site candidate Only links are to meaningful docs related to Radon Includes slideshow downloaded intact Browse to kiddos/kiddos.htm Converted from local site, not from server
