    Here is the case:
    I ll have to join the army in a few days, and do my time (9 months in total). The thing is, since it ll be a while before i can get online again, do you have any way i could download the whole forum in an archive/html format or something, and store it in my smartphone (iphone, but i guess it wont be able to connect)?
    I'd like to be able to "study"/read it to fill all this pointless time, so any help would be seriously appreciated...
    I tried forum pilot, httrack and a one or two other progs, none of which managed to fetch anything correctly (if anything at all)...
    Any ideas??

    Try site sucker. It's been known to download forums. Make sure you set in preferences to stay on blackhatworld and not download links outside.

    BTW- it's only for mac which sucks.

    try surfonline sof . it may help you. another good options i must say is you are only looking for text data no images.

    what you do is download IDM in which you can see the website grabber option. By which you can completely download all the site.

    Not sure if this will work, but I found this: http://blogs.computerworld.com/19698/chrome_android_pc_mobile_page_beaming
    There is a Chrome to iPhone app, not sure if it is the same as the Chrome to Android app described in this article. I also am not sure if you send the forum to your iphone using this app if you can then browse through the entire forum or just the page that was sent. Figured it might be worth a try. Hope you get it figured out!

    Damn I'm just trying to get it for my computer and I downloaded a bit already and they are .tmp files but they seem to be useless as when I open the .tmp files with internet explorer they close immediately as internet explorer opens and when I try with opera it just stays white. When I try with notepad it's just a lot of html or whatever coding

    bhw has security to prevent automated site ripping, for very obvious reasons. you run the risk of being banned if you're caught doing it. if you want to save individual pages for later reading, use ctrl+s from your browser.
