    Hey guys. Is this possible? I know you can make it into print friendly versions. But you still sometimes have 50 odd pages to get through.

    I tried to PDF the whole thread but it only let's me do that specific page....49 pages to go. Big hassle.

    I'd love to be able to put it on my kindle. Then my ride to work and home can actually be useful...

    Appreciate the feedback

    So you want to turn huge and interesting threads from BHW into PDFs so they could be sold on WF or DP ? Hum, interesting :D

    If you got Firefox

    File -> Print -> PDF (left-bottom corner) -> Save as PDF

    enjoy :)

    I was thinking the same thing!

    That only creates the first page in a thread not the subsequent pages.

    More is not possible from the board.
    You can try to write a macro in Firefox.

    Hi . . . hello

    Did you think to use a PDF Printer (Software).

    What you want to print is sent to the PDF Printer in place of your usual paper and ink printer.

    Do a search on Google or whatever and you should come up with a F R E E download.

    I don't promise anything, but I believe it could do the trick.

    Be seeing you.

    You can use SnagIt, google it.
    It allows to capture all webpage and save as many formats, also pdf.

    Try getting the Firefox AutoPager add-on. This add-on automatically loads the next page when you scroll down the page. You'll probably have to load all the pages first, then print it out as pdf.

    The print view is not the greatest option since by default BHW displays 45 posts on one page, while the print view only gives you the option to display 40 posts on one page. But with AutoPager you should be able to get a cleaner result.

    Ha that's the one. Cheers to all the replys. The reason was so I could be on my ipad which doesn't have wi-fi and still read these forums. No sense wasting commuting time when we can all be getting our learn on...
