It'd probably be better to turn it into a PDF file and upload to a large file hosting site
Kinda like Jesse did?

Thanks for the idea.

The Halo Maps Forum web site archive is ready to use. It's not perfect, but it does contain all the forums and topics and user profile pages, and does not have page loading errors or use JavaScript, and it uses HTTPS... and the HTML is legible! It is read-only, however, and will need to be updated on a regular basis.

But I have some scripted approaches, so all I have to do is run the apps and scripts and upload to the server. It only takes a few hours, really, from start to done.

I included only images. Many image links were broken, and the forum had a few instances of incorrect URL BBCode parsing.

To search the web site archive, you'll have to rely upon prefixing your search engine queries with "site:" for now.

This is useful for quickly browsing static pages.

In the future, I might just parse all the information and add it to a database... but even with all the very redundant HTML markup, the forum.halomaps.org directory is only about 700 MB. So only the content would probably be maybe half of that.

With the external images, over 80,000 files are involved.

15 seconds to load a page is too much.
