    A way to export a thread

    I was doing some research to see if there was a way to export a thread and cannot find a method. I wanted to check to see if anyone knows if there is a way to do this. I have my entire build history documented in the build thread and would hate to lose this in case something happened to the server or one day Pete decided he has had enough of us. I saw where you can view the thread in a printable version but this does not list everything on one page plus it does not include the photos. I could go page by page and copy and past into a Word document but that would take some time.
    Thanks

    I could tell you how if I knew what software the site is running.
    Its in php so that means a relational database which is good.

    Hopefully the admin will chime in.

    Good questions. What happens if you print to PDF - no pictures? I'll ask some of the more computer-savvy admins.

    That works but you still have to go page by page and for each page of the thread you get 5 pages of printing. I would then have to combine all of the pdf's into one document.
    Thanks
