I’m trying to help archive Ukrainian-based websites, and started using the ArchiveWeb Chrome browser plugin to do so. I’ve run into an issue where I have the message that ““Webrecorder ArchiveWeb.page” started debugging this browser” and the website is trying to load and at the same time, the Recording status shows “Idle, Continue Browsing”. The first time I started recording, the status updated with the number of URLs, but now there’s nothing.
In short, I figure I’m doing something wrong, but I can’t find any documentation to help solve my issue. How can I capture a whole website using the ArchiveWeb plugin?

ArchiveWeb.page doesn’t collect a “whole website” it is meant for curators to collect very specific regions of the web. You probably will want to look at browsertrix-crawler or the service browsertrix-cloud for automatically crawling a lot of pages. Does this help at all?
Thank you, that is helpful! As I understand it, Browsertrix requires more technical knowledge than I currently have, so I’ll let the group I’m working with know that.
