    hi everyone
    I have some service books for my stereo equipment that are strung out on the net in a HTML address, I need to convert those web pages to a PDF file that can be used off the net.
    I found a site that said just up load the address file and we will convert to a pdf, but the site keep rejected my (firefoximage ) files.
    I really dont want to have to use the net to look at something, as that sorta like cloud storage .

    this place rejected the file, note the lack of any info on the folks who own it :eek::eek::eek:

    https://html2pdf.com/

    any one know of a easy not all afternoon way to do this

    Jim Davis, I go to their site frequently and have not had them flagged by my 360 antivirus, have had the files installed on my pc checked by virusTotal, and ran scans with my AV and Malwarebytes, all clean so far, so maybe it is just Avast?

    Hello,

    Have you heard of -- or tried -- using WinHTTrack? If not, it is a program similar to the GNU wget that can crawl an entire website and download it! Of course, the user can set parameters so the application will crawl a particular subdomain, or website folders, and so on. Admittedly there is a rather steep learning curve, however it's worth considering for those who find numerous pages from particular websites which they want to have a offince copy of.

    If the website is rather small, you can juse type in: "https://www.[website_name].com" and the program will crawl and download the entire website into a folder on your computer.

    Yes, I'm aware this program will not solve your problem regarding converting the website to a pdf -- however it will enable you to have an offline copy of the website in case you're unable to acquire a .pdf file at this time.

    Here is the website for winHTTrack:
