Grab-a-Site 5.0 for Win 98/ME/NT/2K/XP/Vista/W7
Q:  Why do image map links not work properly?
A:
  There are two types of image maps, Server-side and Client-side. When you click on a Server-side image map, your cursor's coordinates are sent to the Web server. That Web server is running a program that interprets those coordinates and uses that information to determine what to send to your Web browser. You can whack and view a Server-side image, but it will not work correctly because the Web server program cannot run on your computer. A Web page containing a Client-side image map contains all of the information necessary to determine what to do when you click on a particular location within the image. That page will be whacked and viewed correctly, so you can use any Client-side image map. If an image map does not work correctly after whacking, it is probably a Server-side image map. The creator of that Web page can convert it to a Client-side image map.

Q:  Will Grab-a-Site download pages that are in different languages?
A:  Grab-a-Site will usually be able to save the pages on your hardrive, but it usually will not be able to change the links so that you can browse from your hardrive. This also depends how the site lists the links on their web pages.

Q:  Is there a way that Grab-a-Site can just download updated or new information without downloading the whole site again?
A:  Yes, the new Grab-a-Site 5.0 has a Refresh button which will download only pages that have changed and follow new links.
