I tried to save my webpage "save as Webpage, HTML only" generated by php file. But when I save it and open it, it is blank. When I save it as "complete" then it is fine. Page is pure html/css after generating with php.

Everything from css to javascript is included into that page, none of it is called outside

what browser are you using? which page where you saving? do you have an URL to show. I just saved this very page as html "complete" but replacing the .html extension to .php and everything was there. I'm using Firefox 27 on Linux. –  PatomaS Feb 18 at 12:45
Is the saved file of zero size? @PatomaS The OP states that "HTML Only" is the problem. However, both work OK for me on Chrome (on this very page). –  w3d Feb 18 at 15:18
I'm using chrome, page I want to show requires login. –  FosAvance Feb 18 at 20:08
Sorry for the hasty answer, I tried both options and both worked. Thanks for pointing the mistake in my comment –  PatomaS Feb 18 at 23:52
"page I want to show requires login" - I imagine this could well have something to do with it. The browser might be making a second request for the page and failing authentication? Although it works for "Complete" so it is a bit of a puzzle. –  w3d Feb 19 at 0:49
