Download a site?

Does anyone know how I can download a web site? I want to be able to read it while offline. I've tried one program called FreshWebSuction, but the problem is that the site is forum and you have to be logged in to read the forum (so it only downloads the front page which asks to register).

File -> Save

Or on Firefox 4: Firefox -> Save site as...

You can use a program like Teleport: one of many so-called 'offline browsers' - basically webspiders that download the whole site. Regarding it being a forum, Google bots are usually allowed to crawl sites - google for hints!
If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.

Mipey that only saves a page, I want a site. I don't see the option in FF4 to "save site as"?

I tried Httrack, but I don't think it allows you to log into a site before downloading it.

Save Page As... is the stuff. I don't see the need for saving whole sites, most are dynamic and usually depend on server-side functionality. Wherever there is documentation or references, there is usually an offline version (pdf, .zip or such). So I can't really recommend anything, sorry.
