Archive the Web on Demand: The Wayback Machine’s Save Page Now is New and Improved
Note from infoDOCKET Founder/Editor, Gary Price: We would like to thank infoDOCKET friend Mark Graham for allowing us to participate in development of some of these new Save Page Now features that make the Wayback Machine an even more vital resource for the library, journalism, education, and so many other user communities.
You can now save all the “outlinks” of a web page with a single click. By selecting the “save outlinks” checkbox you can save the requested page (and all the embedded resources that make up that page) and also all linked pages (and all the embedded resources that make up those pages). Often, a request to archive a single web page, with outlinks, will cause us to archive hundreds of URLs. Every one of which is shown via the SPN interface as it is archived.
Have you ever wanted to archive all the web pages linked from an email message? Well, you are in luck because now you can forward that email to “email@example.com” and after a few minutes you will get an email back filled with Wayback Machine playback URLs.
