So, let's say I want to print out a thread for storage on a removable drive so I can refer back to it  and not worry about the buggar being deleted down the road...

 

Under VBulletin's forum programmes there is a tab for "Forum Actions" and one of the sub-menus is "Show Printable Version", which gives you each page in succession which may be saved, one at a time.

 

I can't find any such function for the IP forum software and am wondering if I'm just missing it or if each "page" of posts in a thread must be saved in the viewing format.

 

(Clear as mud, innit?  Do ask if confused.  I did because I am!)

I'm sure if you did a search you'd find the answer.

Trovão:  Nice try, but I want to download and save the page to my HDD as an (htm) and (php) file for future reference, NOT insert a link to the page in question.  The difference being that once the page is modified or deleted on the original site, the link becomes invalid.

 

 

Mad:  Thanks.  Singularly unhelpful.  You try it.

 

 

4knotSB:  My problem with seeing what you were talking about revelaed itself when I chanced to sign in using Internet Destroyer instead of Firefox.  IE does, indeed, show a line of tools directly under the reply box which Mozilla based browsers do not read or show.  Once I signed in with IE it came up on screen, but I STILL have a problem:

 

When using the "download" button, nothing happens, no matter how long I wait.   If I go to FILE; SAVE PAGE AS in the top bar, it does try to save the page, but 80% is a black area with only a very small portion as readable text.

 

ANy ideas on that?  (WIN7-64b , WIN7 32b AND WIN-XP3!)
