OK, here is what I need :

  • I'm on Mac (Mac OS X 10.6.8)
  • I want to completely mirror a website on my hard drive (this is what I'm using as a test)
  • I want all images and prerequisites there, so that the website is browsable when offline
  • I want relative links in all pages to be updated accordingly
  • (* optional) .html extensions to all files would be great, so that they can be easily recognized and opened by a browser

This is what I'm using :

wget --recursive --no-clobber --page-requisites --convert-links --html-extension --domains

The thing is :

  • .css files and images, etc do not seem to be downloaded - at least, up to the level I've left running (ok, maybe they would be downloaded if the process was completed, so we may skip this one)
  • NO html extension is being added
  • Links are not converted

So... any ideas?
