As a web creative, you may pick a special interest in a specific website for different reasons. Maybe you like the design, maybe it is for a study or research purpose, or maybe you actually feel inspired and want to create or edit something similar. Web browsers come with a handy set of saving features, but for this post, we will cover the save as HTML feature which lets you save a website and some of its resources as used by the web browser.
Disclaimer: This post is not intended to promote copyright violations across the web, but rather to help users of the HTML Editor by PageSection when creating HTML website templates to upload and edit for various creative, and hopefully legal, reasons.
Navigate to the target website or webpage by inserting a valid URL in your web browser's URL search bar. You can also use a search engine to find the URL if you are not sure.
Many websites automatically open popups and modals after loading. The most common case being that about accepting terms, cookies and other policies of the website. In many cases, this is rather annoying to users, but it is also required by law especially due to recent issues arising in regards to user privacy concerns. But enough about that.
Right-click and select "Save As" HTML to save any webpage using your web browser. You can also use Ctrl+S on Windows or ⌘+S on MacOS to access the save menu. Be sure to save using the HTML file option (or even HTML Complete in some cases) so as to save both the html page and the various resources that can be saved by the browser.
In some cases, certain CSS files may not be saved. Be sure to manually identify what resources fail to load, as in return "404 not found" errors, when your html page is loading a web browser. This may not be a huge problem however so feel free to ignore it as the missing files may be due to offline loading and will therefore be resolved with online internet access.
PageSection provides web services. This includes a service that lets users upload files and create URL web links, or even upload an entire HTML website or template. All you need to do is place the website/webpage files in a single zip file, and upload them into your registered user account. Simple.
