This question already has an answer here:

I know that wget can fetch a remote page and its dependencies and rewrite the html so that image src attributes reference the newly downloaded images.

I am trying to convert local html files that reference images on the Internet. I'm using

wget --mirror --page-requisites --convert-links \
     --directory-prefix=foo \
     --force-html \

All of the referenced images are downloaded to the appropriate places in foo/ but the src attributes in my_file.html aren't being changed.

Can't you use regex to fix them? – Misha Jul 10 '11 at 4:35
Yes, I was hoping that I could use wget's built in functionality, but I ended up replacing the attributes manually. – Kevin L. Jul 11 '11 at 14:30

Try this:

 wget --recursive   --page-requisites --html-extension=on --convert-links="on" --domains="" --no-parent  

This will bring you an entire website locally. just tried it, working fine.
with local resources

I already have the website; the problem was that the links weren't being rewritten. in my_file.html – Kevin L. Jul 11 '11 at 14:29
@Kevin L. Please provide the site url that you want to download. BTW, if the links made in JavaScript, you cant do it with wget. nevetheless, provide the url. – fatnjazzy Jul 12 '11 at 4:09
