To archive websites, you can try Httrack (free), or paid for software
such as Offline Explorer or Teleport pro / ultra.
Easy to find on the Web, and check them out for your specific needs.
Another option is Zotero for advanced screencapturing and annotation.
Hope that helps

> Hi all,
> For my PhD project I want to analyse Polish and Turkish websites for sexual and gender minorities. The problem I'm facing right now is how to archive the whole websites? Is it possible? If yes, could you recommend me any good (and preferably free) software to do so?
> I also can save a web page (not the whole website) using my browser but then not all elements are saved (e.g. banners). The same is also true for creating PDF files using software like PDF creator (working as a printer). One of the option is to have a screenshots of home page and other pages I want to analyse. Do you think it will be enough? The disadvantage of this method is that if after a year I realize I want to look at some other sub-pages it won't be possible any longer.
> I'd be very grateful for your help,
