SiteCloner allows you to make a static clone of any website. Wether the original site is a static HTML site or was published using a CMS like Wordpress or Joomla, SiteCloner clones them all!
Once a site is cloned, you can choose to download the entire site as a ZIP archive to your computer. Once downloaded, you can access all the HTML, CSS, JS and images.
Instead of downloading, SiteCloner also allows users to send a cloned site via email. This comes in handy if you'd like to share a clone with a friend or colleague.
Cloning a site starts with adding a new site. Once a site has been added, one or more clones can be created for this site.
To prevent SiteCloner from cloning certain parts of a site, you can set one or more exclude keywords, this will result in URLs containing one or more of these keywords not being cloned.
SiteCloner also allows users to configure a timeout limit for each site individually; this will prevent the cloning process to run for hours. The default is set to 1800 seconds.Try the live demo Buy now - $39
After adding a site item, you can now starting creating clones.
You can configure actions the script should take once the cloning process is complete, like uploading the clone via FTP or sending it by email.
Keep track of the cloning process and cancel/continue at any time.
Completed clones can be downloaded (as a ZIP archive), send by email or uploaded to a remote server via FTP.Try the live demo Buy now - $39
During the cloning process, ALL LINKS are rewritten and turned into relative URL's, this ensures the cloned site will work just as well on a computer as it will on a web server.
As a safety measure, there's a maximum amount of seconds set that the cloning process is allowed to run for. When this limit is reached, the process will stop. The progress made so far will be save though, and you can continue with the process at any given time by clicking the continue () button for that clone. The time out limit can be set for each individual site and the default is set to 1800 seconds.
As far as we know, it's not illegal or prohibited by law to clone other people's web sites. That said, since most web sites are protected by copyright law, you are not allowed to clone a random site and use it's assets in your own projects without permission from the site owner.
Currently https is not supported; if there's enough demand, we might add support for secure http in the future.
As long as all these files are included following common conventions (@import for additional stylesheets, @font-face for fonts and url() syntax for images) any linked resource will be picked up and crawled. We have done extensive testing and found anything linked from CSS files crawled and indexed properly. If you do find instances where something is missed, please do let us know and we'll tweak the crawler to make sure those resources as are picked up as well.
Yes, absolutely. When you cancel the cloning process, the script will remember the progress it's made so far and so you continue with the cloning process at any given moment by clicking the the continue () button for that clone.
These numbers represent the amount of memory used by the crawling script. This is simply to track how much memory the script is using and make sure it doesn't consume too much.
Yes, we most definitely do. For support, please visit the general Chilly Orange Support page located at http://chillyorange.com/support/
