Been asked before, no pretty answer I'm afraid.

I usually cut and paste the verbage, leave off the template html stuff, paste it into Word, or something.

Someone should make a PRR book.
If I can't fix it, I can fix it so nobody else can!

About searching:
As you have probably already found, the integrated forum search-engine can be a pain to use when searching for information in some of the long-long threads. Mike (user insideout) has come up with an elegant solution to this - involving the browser "Firefox" and a plugin called "ScrapBook". This really enhances searches over many-many pages, like the giant error-fixing threads.

Mike has put together an easy-to-follow howto, found at: http://mikeinak.googlepages.com/home


from the META "META"
firefox plug ins rulez !!

Firefox & Thunderbird are great. I find FF quicker than Explorer &, from 50 or so email spams a day, I get 1 a week!

Scrapebook works great with Firefox.

Here's another one.  If you're not happy with Adobe and its bloatware pdf reader, go here and use this free one:

It takes up very little space and loads fast.

It's still a lot of work to only save a thread.
An 'Whole-thread-on-one-page' option would make life much easier.

Maybe we can get Ethan to add this feature. With access to the database, making a nice pdf or minimum html without all the fancy forum decoration (which makes up >90% of the data) might be possible  :thumb:

I hacked a quick and very dirty script to paste several pages into a huge single page thread, the complete LA2A thread is here (430kB zip, 5MB html). Unzip and open locally. Some links, buttons and pictures might not work correctly
You can jump to the original post  on the forum website by clicking the white 'sheet of paper' symbol in the top left corner of the message window.
If there is interest in more threads (or the amateurish perl code), let me know.

Why BBCode?

It's just a totally simplesized version of HTML, so I don't understand that comment. :?
