    I need to mirror a site from my competitors website.
    The thing is I need to copy all the contents from his wordpress blog to mine,I mean all the posts,thats all.I will set up my own theme and my own plugins for now.Is there any way I can copy his contents to mine without going into his sites admin page.
    I read some ebooks on how you can mirror his website to my hard drive,do anyone know about those methods?

    To copy content easy - just Ctrl+C then Ctrl+V. And watch for the sam date of posting. But it's harder with theme. You can Scrap his theme and put it on your blog. But it's more difficult. Simplier way is to find the same template in the web.
    Of course it's difficult and takes much time. The ideal variant is to find his backup. But it seems tme it's impossible...

    He has some 8*80 posts where each page shows 8posts and he has 80 pages filled with content.
    Is there any way like I can get his posts all together?

    Upload MySQL database file via phpMyAdmin. Then, use the RSS feed to upcoming copy posts.

    If you do not have access to database, do it manually like someone above me said. Copy and paste!

    there used to be a plugin for mozilla firefox that would automatically reload the next page of websites ... its been a year since i used it, but it was pretty awesome as soon as you got to the bottom of the page it extended the screen to see the next one

    All the tools you need is autoblog. Just put your competitor RSS Feed URL and you are ready to leech his article. You can have 100% complete duplicate content.Well autblog is blackhat, so do it with your own risk.

    Everything is possible. Just ask Google for it: http://www.google.ru/search?q=syndicate+all+the+published+posts+from+any+other+WordPress+blog

    Not every autoblogging plugin can pull the old posts that already gone from the RSS feed (say there are 1000 posts on the blog and only 10 recent ones are included into its feed), but some are definitely can do it ;)

    Does it allow to extract the old posts which already shifted out of the feed?

    I don't want to be cynical but I would do a few methods.

    If content rich: use a website copyier program to download everything(server side would be stripped), and then you'd have all photos etc..

    If plain text, i'd odesk a personal admin at 4 bucks an hours this should take about 4, so for 16 bucks this would be done...

    But my main question is.... duplicate content hurts, so why duplicate? unless you're making the site to offensively duplicate..

    Copy and Paste is the only advice I can give.
