    I've had a good search but can't find out how to make webpages available offline. Is it actually possible or not?

    I'd appreciate any help, thanks.

    Could you go to print them and then save them as PDFs?

    I don't think it's possible. IE for Mac was able to. Safari hides the cache, or at least I spent 20 minutes looking for it and wasn't able to pull webpages out from the cache.

    If you're using Tiger and therefore Safari v.2, just save the page (file/save as) :)

    Ah, yes, save as is now working...

    That makes me look albeit stupid, i think it was because i was saving as a source.

    Thanks guys.

    Awesome. For some reason, I always thought that didn't save the pictures, but it does. :cool:

    I remember doing something similar in Panther and it didn't download images.

    Not only does it save images, but it saves the images in the actual file, so you can send the saved web page to other Mac users to open up on their machines. :cool:

    Very very cool. I swear that hasn't been in Safari 2.0 from the start, has it? :eek:

    I'm so unobservant. :(

    Ermmm...maybe ;)

    And whilst we're at it, I might as will pimp this app. Paparazzi! lets you take screenshots of webpages that don't quite fit on one page. Akin to saving a file offline for those who aren't on Safari v.2 :)


    (oh and MadJew I'm not following you around the forums honest! :p )
