    I've always used HTTrack. It will take some time for you to become comfortable with the settings, though. And it can't download video hosted on websites like youtube.

    Are you going to mass scrape articles? You can do it with scrapebox, but with a lot of personal touching to make it work.

    For hand free, you can use SEO content machine, i used it for this purpose 1.5 years and it worked perfectly, not sure if they are still active now though. You can import 200-300 URLs and let it do the dirty work.

    no not really mass scrape. I want to have 5-10 blogs related to my niche scraped every few days and have the text re-written with spinbot or manually and have the same images used. I want to start a blog but dont really want to rank the website or compete in the blogsphere. I just need the blog to share the articles on my FB page and redirect people to my store.

    You can try WPEnhance Content Rocket. . It extracts text from YouTube on any niche. I have used it and managed to get lot of engaging content. Its certainly better than other content tools.

    Nope, I think it is not possible to just download a image from websites

    I would like to extract the article itself. Text and images.
