Possible Duplicates:
Looking for software to facilitate printing of online content
How can I download an entire website

Hi,

I'm looking for something that I can point at a URL and it crawl the site and create a single PDF of the of the site.

I would imagine it would be something like a Firefox plugin .. but with similar capabilities to wget.

edit

Good grief... how ready we are to close on superuser. I'm looking for a combination of both printing and crawling. I can crawl a site and download it via wget, and I can print to pdf (via pdf create). I'm looking for a combination of them both.. even if I need to wget to a bunch of .html then do something else.

The reason why I'd like it automated is that I need it quickly (within 30 minutes would be good) and we're talking 100+ pages.

One very valid point was that the order would be very hard to control. It's not so relevent here as one of the actual use cases is to print out all the site and spread it out on the table and rip through it with red pens making adjustments.

Oh... and the possible dupes pointed out.. some are possible dupes of other questions... none are really canonical answers.

@ran: Tell me about it! Since you and quack have the magic close vote there's barely anything to do. :) –  Josh K Mar 31 '10 at 1:40

I don't think you can do that.

(Before you object) ... it's not so much as a problem of converting to PDF, but more of a problem of how would that PDF be structured. How would a convertion program know which page (from some link) goes where (in what order).

I guess, some more problems would arise, but this is the first that sprang to mind.

Of course it's not possible (I explained it to him in my answer), but I don't think he's online anymore. Don't understand what's with the maniacal downvoter though ;) –  ldigas Mar 31 '10 at 2:00
    
For what it's worth, it is possible to use this option to download an entire site - there is just an 'entire site' radio button and then it will follow links and render those pages as well. Not convinced it is the best way however as I tried it on a very simple 5 page site and it took ages. Also for responsive sites, I couldn't see how to specify the width of the browser so the renders I got were for the mobile version of the site only –  Addsy Jan 16 '13 at 11:08
