How do I save a webpage that uses programming for offline use? Answered

There have now been quite a few websites that I have really enjoyed and used, and then without warning they go offline, leaving me bereft.

There's a webpage that uses some sort of programming to allow you to make your own graph paper - is it possible for me to save this so that I can use it offline, please?

I have tried the normal save page stuff, but that doesn't work ;-)

Here is the link:

basically, you can't. Certainly that particular example hides the clever bits very well - they're done "server side", and not on your PC. There are LOADS of free alternatives though.

. Get a web site ripper/copier, eg, HTTrack Website Copier. That should grab the JS files that the page uses and adjust the links to grab them locally.

Ohhh was it done with JS not PHP server side? JS is still on my list of things to learn...

Thanks, Steveastrouk ;-) I appreciate your time and quick answer.
