    Do I understand it right: you want to download a complete Website without pictures?

    Firstly, many websites having some protection against downloading in full!
    Secondly, a website without pictures will not be complete and therefore even will not work correctly!
    Thirdly, for to get the structure, you'll need to have also the pictures!
    And last but not least: Without a few exceptions, all websites are property of the owner and the use from 3. party without proper permission is against the Copyright Law and therefore an criminal delict! Every legal website will have and copyright note, mainly on the bottom of each page!

    There quite a lot apps available which doing what you're looking for. Just use our great friend Google for to find some! But keep in mind what I wrote above: many sites having some kind of protection which will prohibit you for to download completely.

    Well that didnt really helped me at all. Who cares about copyright lol I think Im not going to jail cuz of that. The reason I want to copy a website its because yesterday I was able to visit a website that was shutdown recently, but I still was able to visit using Wayback Machine(I dont trust in this anymore its useless:mad:) and today it says "Page cannot be crawled or displayed due to robots.txt." Lets say I want to save this forum or a warez site, what settings to use in order to save only the first page of each thread to save in size? Even if it doesnt has the structure/layout for easy navigation, I only care mostly about the links.

    There special apps for to save just part's, like Links, of an website! Search for such Apps!

    My remarks about the structure, copyright etc. were just for to point to the fact's that many of today's sites having some protection. It's anyway up to you to break any law or not, not my business!:D

    As I wrote: Do your work and search for an other apps till you find one which do what you want and fulfil your requirement! Or use Payware as an alternative!!

    If you are using FireFox, ScrapBook 1.5.8 works very well. There is another "updated" one, ScrapBook Plus version 1.9.23.40 that adds a few things to the original. I prefer the original one though, so YMMV.

    Try Backstreet browser. Works fully functional for 30 days, then uninstall and run regvac and reinstall for another 30 days, rinse and repeat.
