Pulling down website graphics

I have an app called PageSucker that no longer works since I upgraded to Mac Lion 7.2. Is there any other app. that does the same thing? (Brings over all pages, art files, etc., from a website to your local drive.)

Fetch used to do this. I haven’t used it in a long time, though. If you don’t mind installing some open-source software (compiling it in Terminal) there’s a one-liner I use in Terminal to mirror an entire site using the command-line application wget.

Thanks Walt, but I’m unable to use Terminal… for some reason, it just won’t run for me. When it asks for a password, I can’t enter anything because my system’s not password protected, hence it won’t run.

I’ll take a look into Fetch per your suggestion.

Regards.

Fetch doesn’t do it (as far as I can see)… but Web Dumper seems to be pretty good so far.

It isn’t possible to run Mac OS X without having a password set up. When
exactly do you get asked for the password? Do you remember the password
you used when you first set up the Mac OS?

I don’t have a password on mine - I left it blanks when I loaded the operating system.

I recommend that you go into System Preferences, click Users & Groups, select your user account, click the Change Password button, and assign something as the password. (Even if it is just “incorrect”, so if you get it wrong you’ll be told “your password is incorrect”. :slight_smile: )

It is likely that at the moment you can just hit the Return key when asked for your password. But Terminal may not accept such a cavalier approach to security - and it may cause problems elsewhere.

Well, I’m running Lion w/o any password (other than a return)… and a simple return doesn’t work with Terminal.

I would recommend that you create another user – without Admin privileges – and use that as your day-to-day login if you want to have an empty password. I did this for my daughter when we shared a Mac; and I also set the Simple Finder and Parental Controls on that user so she couldn’t get into any trouble or wipe out the checkbook.

Then set a good non-dictionary password for your original user, and only log in as that user when you are installing software or running updates. I can’t emphasize how scary it is to use a network-connected computer with an empty password.
