Feedback on RemoteFileAttachPlugin

-- JosKunnekes - 30 Jun 2007

oooo, i like that smile Somewhere on twiki.org I archived an external web page that I wanted to link to. I wonder if this could be extended to archive a web page (and maybe its images) to ensure that documentation that refers to somewhere else continues to work...

I love this idea of Sven. It would ease the situation with on-line references, the old "don´t refer to on-line content, it can change any time". I guess you could check out BatchUploadPlugin, maybe it would help.

You could use this plugin to archive a webpage, but you will only get the HTML. I think Sven has a good idea for a kind of 'archive page'-plugin. It could take an url and some options about what and what not to retrieve, and then use something like "wget -p -k http://www.example.com/" to retrieve the page and its dependencies (like images), attach all the retrieved files to the topic using BatchUploadPlugin, and after rewriting the relatieve URLs in the retrieved page(s) to point to the attachments you would have an offline copy of the page to refer to.
