Hi altogether,

does anybody know the exact command I have to use to download part of a website that consists of more than one page (with wget). Example:

I want to download a certain page which exists within a forum. There´s an article dealing with "stderr" within this forum.

The address is : "https://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/stderr-umleitungen/" AND "https://forum.ubuntuusers.de/topic/stderr-umleitungen/2/" as it consists of two pages.

What I want to do is download both pages with one command, but not the entire forum. How do I go about typing the correct command?

Tnx a lot. Rosika https://davescomputertips.com/wp-content/sp-resources/forum-smileys/sf-embarassed.gif

P.S.: System: Linux/Lubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, 64bit


Hi everyone.

in the meantime the problem could be solved. If anyone is interested:
The correct commands would be:

wget -Ek https://example.com/foo/bar/{,2}

for the download of two pages.

wget -Ek https://example.com/foo/bar/{3,4,5,6}
wget -Ek https://example.com/foo/bar/{3..6}

Either of the above commands for the download of several pages.
