Alls;
just recently looked into the bludit article store on disk and found they "just" contain snippets of (in my case) HTML which is neat but misses all the information that are linked to the article as well (such as post date/time, description, tags, category, all the stuff). I assume they're stored elsewhere? Is there an out-of-the-box way to export all this into something like "self-contained" files for the sake of archiving / backup?
Thanks in advance,
Kristian

The data are stored in the databse file pages.php in the directory /bl-content/databases.

You can for example use HTTrack:

Thanks. Didn't really feel like using a web crawler for that though; maybe I'll try to somehow script this using the Bludit API then. 🙂

Sure, using a script is another posibility.
