Where is 'index.html' entry point

When you download a site, Web Dumper creates a new folder with the name of that site, creates all the folder hierarchy to match the initial URL and then downloads and saves the first page as 'index.html'.

You can look at the original URL and go to the related folder manually, you will then find the 'index.html' file. Just double-click on it to load the site first page.

With current Web Dumper version it is even easier. We have added a 'Downloads' button right in the window toolbar that will take you to the right place as soon as you click on it.

If you are viewing a Web site with your browser and you decide that you would like to make a copy of it on your hard drive, you have to manually save each page as you view it along with embedded pictures, sounds and so on.

This can be a very long and tedious process, and in many cases it's more trouble than it's worth. It doesn't have to be that way, however, as Web Dumper makes this whole process very fast and easy. With Web Dumper you can download entire Websites off of the Internet, and save them on your hard drive for later offline browsing.

Downloaded Web sites are saved on your hard drive with their directory structure intact. Web Dumper automatically downloads HTML documents along with their embedded pictures, sounds, movies and so on while it screens them to look for any enclosed links to other documents.

Web Dumper lets you select which kinds of file you want to be dumped between more than 60 available standard types, the folder depth level, how links must be processed and if it must re-link your HTML documents for offline browsing.
