The Downloads screen displays a list of folders that contain your downloaded websites.
You can use these folders to organize your downloaded websites. For example, you can keep related sites in their own folders or, for sites that change over time, you can download the same site periodically into different folders.
There is always one folder in the list that is the destination folder (), which is where downloaded items are saved.
If you tap the Edit button in the Downloads screen, SiteSucker displays a toolbar with the following buttons:
Deletes the selected folders and everything they contain. The “ SiteSucker” folder, however, cannot be deleted.
Allows you to rename the selected folder. The “ SiteSucker” folder, however, cannot be renamed. It also allows you to make the selected folder the destination folder.
Allows you to create a new folder.
Viewing Downloaded Websites
If you tap on a folder in the Downloads screen, SiteSucker displays a list of the downloaded websites that are in that folder. These sites can be displayed as thumbnails or as folders. If you tap on a row in the list, SiteSucker displays the corresponding site in a browser. (See Browser below for more information.)
If you tap on the Thumbnails button, SiteSucker displays the list of downloaded sites as thumbnails. SiteSucker generates the thumbnail when the page is displayed in the browser. If the Return to Last Page Visited control is on in the Preferences, then the last page visited is shown in the browser when you tap on a row. Otherwise, the first bookmark for the site determines which page is shown. The path for that page relative to the enclosing folder is also shown in the list.
If you touch and hold the thumbnail for any site in the list, the thumbnail is removed. You might do this, for example, if you want to change the orientation of the thumbnail.
If you tap on the Folders button, SiteSucker displays the list of downloaded sites as folders. Folders that do not contain any bookmarks are disabled and cannot be selected.
The list may also include the “SiteSucker.log” file. Tap on this item to display errors, warnings, or other information that was logged by SiteSucker.
If you tap the Edit button in this screen, SiteSucker displays a toolbar with the following buttons:
Deletes the selected items or all items if nothing is selected.
Copies or moves the selected items or all items if nothing is selected. When you tap this button, a list of folders is displayed. Select the folder where you want the items to appear and then tap the Copy or Move button.
Exports the selected items or all items if nothing is selected. See Transferring Files for more information.
Imports items from iCloud Drive, Dropbox, or the macOS Finder. See Transferring Files for more information.

SiteSucker automatically creates a bookmark for the first file it downloads from a site. This file becomes the Default Page, which is the first page shown when a site’s folder or thumbnail is tapped in the Downloads screen. You can change the Default Page by creating a bookmark for a different file (by tapping in the toolbar) and making it the first bookmark. The Default Page is ignored if the Return to Last Page Visited option is on in the Preferences.
If you tap the Edit button, you can delete and reorder bookmarks. If you tap a bookmark while editing, you can change the name associated with the bookmark or make the bookmark the Default Page. You can also make the bookmark the Launch Page, which SiteSucker will display immediately after the app is launched.
