I've sometimes used this bash script, which originally I wrote to 
download a section of a site concerning some hardware I owned when the 
site looked like it was about to close down, which in fact it did, so in 
due course I was glad that I'd had the foresight.

I usually find that it gets related images, etc, except where they 
aren't stored in the same sub tree as the root document.

(Note, beware unintended line wrap)


#	The name of the directory containing this script
# echo "Directory: ${DIRY}"

#	The filename of this script
# echo "Filename: ${SCRIPT}"

#	User Agent string  -  Chrome
UAGENT="--user-agent='Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:56.0) 
Gecko/20100101 Firefox/56.0'"

#	Options for wget command
OPTIONS="-F -r -c -nc -t 3 -T 60 --retry-connrefused -w 20 --random-wait 
--waitretry=60 --no-check-certificate ${UAGENT}"

#	Input list of URLs to retrieve
if [ "${1:0:4}" != "http" ]
		if [ -f "${1}" ]
				LIST="-i ${1}"
				OPTIONS="${OPTIONS} ${LIST} ${*}"
				echo "WARNING - url list file '$1' not found!"
				exit 1

#	WGET the files in the list of URLs
echo "echo ${OPTIONS} | xargs wget > \"${LOG}\" 2>&1"
echo ${OPTIONS} | xargs wget > "${LOG}" 2>&1 &
