    Is there any posibility to download a wordpress site and edit it? I downloaded some time ago a site using httrack and uploaded it using filezilla but I can`t edit it afterwards, I would like to be able to edit it easily in the wordpress interface from the website. Can it be done, am I missing something or it`s impossible? The thing is I want to copy arround 10.000 links and not imput them and arange them manually.....

    It`s not my site. It will look like I`m stealing but the links I`m trying to get are all youtube like links, I just need to get them organized so I don`t manually input them and organize them by series. I can download it, and I can upload it on the web. The thing is I don`t know how to upload it on wordpress in order to update the content of the site easily from the wordpress interface. ...

    Are you scraping a site and trying to import that site into WP? It won't work.

    You need to scrape the site then import the links into a text editor and then export them as a text file. Then you can use that in WP.

    Or you could try this plugin:
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-web-scrapper/

    Or these might help

    You will need to test it. Does the site have an RSS feed?

    One of the Autoblog plugins should be able to do this.

    Look at the page source and see if you can find a link to the sitemap

    Also the Rss feed is here:

    Try the plugin I mentioned above and try this page:


    Not sure it will work because those aren't a list of YT videos.

    Those videos are embedded.

    I am tired now so don't have time to look at it in more depth.

    Experiment. Hopefully somebody will come along to help you.
