    Hi there, this plugin seems to work really well. A ex-client of mine is transferring away and I have offered to give him a static copy of his website (I have already given him the database). Where does your plugin actually put the static files and is there any way I can utilise this?

    Our theme has taken months to develop and used a lot of custom code which we cannot give away but I do not want to be difficult with the ex-client. He is happy with a static copy, would your plugin be able to do this please~? Many thanks!

    I love WGET for this exact purpose.

    This is from a Drupal post, but the same method is still valid.

    # Wget is generally available on almost any 'nix machine and can produce the mirror from the command line. However, wget seems to have problems converting the relative style sheet URL's properly with many Drupal site pages. Modify your theme template to produce hardcoded absolute links to the stylesheets and try the following command:
    wget -q --mirror -p --html-extension --base=./ -k -P ./ http://example.com

    http://drupal.org/node/27882 has more options.
