So, when I download the zip file from liteaddress.org and open it up in my browser, the page that opens has the header of bitaddress.org and it says its a bitcoin wallet instead of a litecoin wallet. I want a litecoin paper wallet. Advice please.

Liteaddress was created from Coblee who forked it from bitaddress.  You can trust liteaddress. I have paper wallets in storage with a copy of the site offline.

Sounds like an incomplete fork if above is true.

But why does the zip i downloaded say bitaddress.org instead of liteaddress.org

If i send litecoin to a bitcoin wallet address, the address isnt valid on the litecoin network is it? Unless i am ignorant.

It says bitcoin because Charlie Lee made modifications to bitaddress to implement in litecoin on liteaddress.org.  Liteaddress works for litecoin, I can assure you that.  It just says bitaddress because the original fork from there wasn't fully completed by changing all the bitaddress verbiage to liteaddress.  It WAS however completed enough in the sense that it fully works with litecoin.

I have to jump in here, as I'm attempting to create a paper wallet (sorry for the bump !).
Not only does the offline version say "bitaddress.org", but the wallets it generate are definitely bitcoin wallets.

Kinda useless for Litecoin Tongue

Any idea where a proper offline version of liteaddress.org can be had ?

hmm, that is very weird indeed.
i believe this is the repository: https://github.com/litecoin-project/liteaddress.org

i've also sent a message to coblee (the litecoin creator) about this.

I see what I did - I actually downloaded the release v2.9.8.
Can confirm that cloning master produces litecoin paper wallets Smiley
