    Takes very long time and end with errors.

    Simply Static just used 15 minutes. WP Static Site Generator used over a hour.

    Simply Static just generate around 500 files. WP Static Site Generator loaded everything in my uploads folder.

    Also, lack of information while processing.

    I want to make it works but I cannot. Please help. Thanks.

    Hi @umcms,

    Thanks for trying out the plugin.

    It is a compromise in design to try and avoid any missing files, or including too many.

    If you’d like, please try the latest development build, which may still grab everything from /wp-content/uploads, but has some major speed improvements, even with a larger amount of files:

    For the 5.9 release, I’m aiming to revert the aggressive crawling/copying of files to be optional as to which extra folders you want to force to be included – there are many themes which are a bit tricky to crawl and require more options around exporting.

    The above linked file is still very much in development, but if you have any feedback on it, please join the support community at: where we can have a discussion about this or anything else related to the plugin.

    I’m happy to try and work with you to get your site exporting properly.

    Thank you, I will try the new version.

    I think a function of exclude file or folder is needed.

    In my case, I must active the backup plugin and WP Static Site Generator will include all the backup files.

    I want to exclude the backup files from /wp-content/uploads

    Or any options to crawling pages starting at homepage?
