Downloadable threads ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Is it possible to download an entire thread to a reader such as a Kindle?
If so, could you please describe the procedure?

Thanks!
Steve

You could "print to .pdf" using whatever software you have to do that and transfer it to your Kindle.

Is there an estimate for when the functionality to download a thread to text will be re-enabled? The above work around isn't useful for threads that have thousands of posts.

I am sorry, their is not at this time.

The explosion of mobile devices has pretty much killed the need for options like these.

I had to drop my car off for service the other day and I found it very useful to be able to print off the printable version of the page without avatars and signatures to hand to the service tech.

Downloading to text was also the best way to search a thread for a particular keyword.

I'd download a thread to text, delete all responses older than a year (or whatever), and then use "FIND" to jump around to when certain products were mentioned.

Getting comments/opinions on the XPA-3 in the huge Emotiva thread, or the Denon 2313 in the long Denon XX13 Model thread would be a breeze... and it's way faster than search.

One more vote for getting this functionality back.

Any update, guys? Or a workaround for getting the whole thread into one file/view?

Thanks!

As far as I know, the programmers have no plans to add this.

Mike,

 

I was looking for the thread download functionality, and was surprised and disappointed that it no longer exists.  Please accept my vote to re-implement this functionality.  It is really needed.

+1, I would like this as well

I will add my yes and please vote to this request as well. Being able to download an entire thread to text was a feature I used to use all of the time to create a "manual" of informational posts for each new audio/video device I purchased. The text file was much easier to read and edit (without requiring internet access) than copying and pasting posts from a thread.

This seriously needs to be addressed. Threads I'm interested in contain thousands of posts mad.gif

Using the "New Page Filtering" feature of my browser extensions is an easier way to filter posts. When a posts page is loaded or reloaded the specified New Page filter is applied to the page automatically. Posts on the page that do not contain the specified string are not displayed. Once the string is specified, the filtering will be applied each time you navigate to a new forum post page.

This feature is available for Chrome, Firefox, Firefox for Android, and Opera. No Browser Helper Object has been created for the IE version of the extension, so the filter must be respecified each time a page is loaded or reloaded.
