Forum 'Print All' Feature Request

Postby Charles Browne » 14 Jun 2010, 20:11

Hello,

A feature request for the forum.

In the current 'Print View' of the forum only one page of a multi-page thread is displayed at a time while in the print view mode, so that to save or print a seven page thread for example (in my case mostly to save) each page of the multi-page thread needs to be clicked on individually and a 'Print View' done for it.


While the current print view is fine and in my opinion should remain as it is, would it also be possible to have a print all mode so that all pages of a multi-page thread are displayed in a single html page.


I know nothing of forum software including phpBB but a quick search of the phpBB website located this old 2008 page (link below) that has an example of what I am writing about. Maybe a print all option is built into the current software?

Thanks for considering

Hi again Charles

It appears that adding mods makes the forum software more difficult to upgrade... and not upgrading the software on a regular basis would be very risky, security issues would certainly happen. Actually this is why we upgraded to phpBB 3 : some time ago a hacker attacked the forum, and at that time there were so many mods installed that upgrading was virtually impossible.

But we are still considering adding this mod, just be patient :)

I would forget about the print all modification then. That's why I asked if maybe it was an option in the current software version, as in built-in option. If I want to save a print view of a multi-page thread no extra trouble to just save each thread page one at a time.
