Having problems creating PDF from website with query-string URLs

I have a website that I would like to create a PDF from. I am using the Create -> PDF from Web Page..., selecting the site's home page, and capturing 2 levels, with "stay on same path" and "stay on same server" checked in order to limit the scope of the crawl.


Where the pages are at and, this works fine. However, where the pages are at and, the page represented by the query string URL is not converted to the PDF.


This is a problem, given that the site I want to archive as a PDF uses query strings for most of its pages.


I have been able to individually convert a single query-string-based page into a PDF using this method, but doing this for every page on the site would be almost impossible given the sheer number of pages on the site.


Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround other than separately capturing each page (which would be prohibitive effort)?


I have tried this in both Acrobat Pro X and Acrobat Pro 9 for Mac, with the same results.
