Hi ioannispapaiacovou,

The spider for Front Page will not follow javascript based URLs nor will it follow full (http://) URLs nor can it correctly parse dynamic URLs.  If the site has a complicated navigation or link structure or runs off a database (i.e. WordPress Site), then FrontPage will have a hard time replicating it locally.

You have to remember that Front Page is a VERY old and limited product at this time.  It came into being when static pages were the norm for web development.  Nowadays, many sites (if not most sites) are completely database-driven and FrontPage has no idea how to handle that.

There are tons of programs that do what you want but if the site is protected in some way or uses javascript links that a spider can't follow, you can't do what you want to do.

In reality, if you had permission from the site owner to do this you would also have access to the server to do it.
