How can I copy content from a forum that requires registration?

peter101 September 29, 2011

I tried both wget and HTTTrack, but both have the same problem, they only copy the first page that required registration and yes I typed my username and password on HTTTrack and nothing change. Any ideas?

Sorry if this question is similar to a previous one, but I have only two days until the forum is gone forever and I didn’t know if I get any response from the other thread.

    were you able to back up the forum before it closed? Please let us know which tool worked for you, if any. Thank you!

    Register an account, log in, and copy and past.

    I can only encourage that you try other website copiers in search for one that will actually authenticate you. If you provide a link to the forum I could try it myself as well.
