Uninstalled and left junk files
By , for WP 4.2.2

I do like the idea, so hopefully the plugin matures.

I uninstall it and wasn't going to leave feedback, But there were hundreds of junk files left behind!

Luckily it was on a Test Site and Backed up.

This plugin come in simple, straight and superb way!

Very simple and useful but options are confusing
By , for WP 4.1.1

This is a very useful plugin for those who can make a static archive copy of a site no longer mantained withour the need to have a running WordPress anymore.

But when trying to build it, it should be explained in the FAQs what is explained on this page: http://en.staticpress.net/static-setting/

set here like “/var/www/html” and set Static URL like “http://www.example.com/static/”, the files are output under “/var/www/html/static”.

Or else you'll become crazy with some files under http://www.example.com/static/static and other poiting out to http://www.example.com/static/

That config is not very intuitive!

Great.

Hello my Dear,

After the installation of StaticPress, I see this warning:

Warning: mkdir(): Invalid argument in C:\xampp\htdocs\websites_test\test\wp-content\plugins\staticpress\includes\class-static_press.php on line 359.

Do you know what this does mean?

With regards,

awesome with minor bugs
By , for WP 3.9.1

Should be number one in the category.
Do exactly what it is supose to do.
Use relative url instead of absolute, no need to mess with setting in local wordpress, just run it (verify the output directory permissions, there is no warning)

an easy configuration :
http://localhost/<your path>
output dir: /var/www/<your path> OR /var/www/html/<your path> for me

Then, I uploaded the files with ftp, and it works!

I have encontered some bug with url starting with http://localhost
Fixed with :

find . -name "*.html" -print | xargs sed -i 's#http://localhost##g'
find . -name "*.html" -print | xargs sed -i 's#http:\/\/localhost##g'

this command replace in multiple files (delete in this case). It is explained here: http://rushi.wordpress.com/2008/08/05/find-replace-across-multiple-files-in-linux/

Also, one image was mysteriously missing, I added it manualy.
