I used this command to download a webpage recursively in 5 levels to navigate it offline:

wget -r -p --convert-links http://www.pythondiario.com

But the images are not downloaded properly.

How do I fix this?

    This doesn't work because the images on the site you mention are hosted on a different site. Aug 26, 2017 at 16:32
  • Ok, so how can I fix this?

  • You use some other tool to mirror the site. Aug 26, 2017 at 17:32
  • Thanks to your explanation of my problem, I found a way to solve my problem using wget. If anyone has the same problem, here is the solution: Use the "-H" command to allow the download of files from different domains

As Satō Katsura noted in a comment, some images on this page are on a different host. By default, wget does not follow cross-host links (this applies to image retrieval as well as recursive traversal).

To make wget follow cross-host links, pass the -H option. It is recommended to pass the -D option as well to limit which hosts are traversed, otherwise you risk downloading a lot of linked content.

wget -r -p --convert-links -H -Dblogspot.com http://www.pythondiario.com

Note that -H and -D apply to recursive traversal as well as images. You can further restrict cross-host links by adding -R or --reject-regex options.

See “spanning hosts” in the manual for more details.
