Smile Problem in saving "complete" webpage


A webpage like this:
http://top7.com/top/3375/Female-Singers-Of-2012

I saved it as complete webpage,
but when I open it later,
some pictures can not appear.
Why?

I tried with IE, firefox, chrome etc, also faced the same problem.

you have to bookmark it, in order to view the pictures in the web page as they are fetched from different databases.

I book mark it, but i want to view it offline,
so I saved it as a complete HTML webpage.
But when I open it offline, some pictures do not show up.

That is not possible dude.
you can't do that..until & unless you make changes to the html code(path's for the pictures should be local) to view the page as online & even you have to save the pictures in you machine.

The easiest way to save a "complete" page is to use the Mozilla Archive Format extension. This saves and bundles everything up into a zip archive (with a .maff extension) that can be opened by any browser that has the add-on installed. Or it can be unzipped and viewed directly in any browser.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...rchive-format/

Notice too that it also supports the Microsoft .mht format, which works in a similar way.

I just did this using firefox on the webpage you included in your original query and it worked fine. If you hadn't loaded the entire web pages, allowed all scripts to run, etc; i.e. if some images were not showing when you performed your save, then you won't see those images in the saved complete form. Further, you cannot change the name once you save unless you change the name of the folder that is also created. And by the way, the folder created does contain all the embedded content, so it's not merely in that one HTML file, it is also in a same named sub-folder. So if you save complete then copy just the HTML file to somewhere else without also copying the sub-directory matching that web page name, then that's why you're not seeing what you expect.

I use IE to save it,
it can be opened offline but some pictures are missing.
I had made sure the webpage was loaded fully before saving.

This is the Linux-Newbie section and you are not a newbie and also know that IE is Windows. So if you are using Windows and it wont work for you ask in the appropriate place or even on a Windows IE forum.

Reporting this trhead to recommend it be moved to General or somewhere apart from Linux-*

Saving as *mht format is ok.
But only Maxthon and Avant Browser can open it.

Did you miss the part where I said the MAF extension supports .mht too?

When saving a webpage, you can choose to save a "complete webpage" in html format, I assume every details in the page will be saved and when you open it later offline, you see exactly what you saw before.
But this is not the case, sometimes it is even difficult to be opened by IE/Firefox, waiting for long time and it opens with missing details, like certain pictures are not shown.
