Hi Alexander,

please have a look into the 'Recursive Accept/Reject Options' docs.

You could set the domains to be followed by using --domains.
Also --include-directories and/or --exclude-directories might be a help.

I am not sure that you can achieve your goal with a single call to Wget.
Missing files / directories could be downloaded using separate calls to Wget.
--input-file combined with --force-html and/or --base might be a help.

Regards, Tim
