Simply Static: The Static Site Generator for WordPress

Never worry about WordPress hacks again.

Create a static site that’s hack-proof and lightning fast with Simply Static.

Features

Create a static site with the click of a button

Simply Static is the easiest way to create a static site. It crawls through your WordPress site, creating static copies of your pages and including assets like stylesheets and JavaScript files.

When it’s done, it bundles your static files into a ZIP file or transfers them to a new directory on your web server. You can then use those static files to serve a public-facing site while keeping WordPress hidden away somewhere safe.

Automatic URL replacement

Any time Simply Static encounters your WordPress URL it will replace it with a URL of your choice. You can choose to use absolute URLs — www.example.com/hello — relative URLs — /hello — or offline URLs so that you can browse your static site without an internet connection.

Specify additional URLs or files to include (or exclude)

Simply Static scours your WordPress site for pages to include much like Google would. But if it misses something, like images loaded in via JavaScript, you can add additional URLs, files, or entire directories for it to include.

And if there are parts of your site that you want Simply Static to ignore, you can specify URLs (or URL patterns) to exclude from processing.

100% Safe

Simply Static does not make any changes to your WordPress installation. Try using it to generate a static site. If you like it, keep it! And if it ends up not meeting your needs, uninstall it without fear. (But we’d love to hear how we can improve! Drop us a line anytime.)

“It worked well for me. It did a better job of matching my permalink structure than my attempts with wget.”
