What issue are you having with HTTrack? Some plugins like Better WP Security can block HTTrack and other bots (including wget) in the .htaccess from even accessing your site. But HTTrack will only spider what it knows about - that is, there needs to be a link to a specific subsite. Otherwise it won't find it.

Subject: [wp-edu] WordPress standalone html websites

Has anyone ever created an offline copy of a WordPress site that can be viewed as a standalone html website? A colleague has some beautiful sites that she'd like to take down yet preserve for offline viewing independent of WordPress. Short of printing all the materials out, it doesn't seem possible. Years ago, I used the free version of WinHTTrack website copier to create static copies of MovableType blogs. That solution worked great then but not so on WordPress multisite. Even when the sites are made public. Couldn't find any plugins that do this successfully either.  Thanks for any suggestions.
