    Default Archiving ASP.NET pages, HOWTO?

    As part of a CMS solution for a client, I need to provide an archiving tool, so that static snapshots of the ASP.NET pages in the finished website can be taken, for storage and possible later offline browsing. <BR><BR>Whilst I have tried a number of the available archivers (aka. offline browsers, web-grabbers, etc), they all fail on one crucial account where ASP.NET pages are concerned: <BR><BR>None of them are able to resolve links of the type: <BR>&#060;a href="javascript:__doPostBack(&#039;LayoutFrame1:E wepMultiPage1:_ctl5&#039;,&#039;&#039;)"&#062;Page 3&#060;/a&#062; <BR><BR>and ASP.NET pages are rife with these. That means that these links always point to the live site, and cannot be viewed offline, since the archiving tool cannot resolve them and convert them to a static page. <BR><BR>HELP anybody! Does anyone know of an archiver that can resolve these links? <BR>Thanks.

    You might have a catch-22.<BR>doPostBack will cause the form to be POSTed back to the server.<BR>A post requires a new response from the server.<BR><BR>The link you posted seems like paging, you could change it to use links so that the Page# is passed in the URL... :S
