In general you cannot use wildcards with wget
, because the http servers do not provide a way of getting a list of files.
Wildcards are supported for ftp (though you would need to quote your url, otherwise the shell will attempt to expand the wildcard characters before wget
There are some specific arguments to wget
that support wildcards (such as the accept and reject list), but this would only help you if you were doing a recursive wget (eg, if there was a parent page or index page with links to all the pages that interest you), for example:
wget -r -A 'page*.html' www.kidsolr.com
(though it will have to recurse through all the files in order to find the ones named 'page*.html', which can waste bandwidth)
