Suggestions for Print Option
April 29, 2009, 12:44:06 AM
Hi Vic

When one presses the print button, it displays all the posts.

It would be even better if user could select which posts they want to print or not. That would save a lot of paper. Maybe each post can have a check box for selected print option.

Just an idea.

Thanks

Hello OZ,

Good news is we already have that functionality on our board, only not for print, but for choosing which topics to split by moderators. But hey! It is there, output needs to be redirected and some other tweaks.

Actually, this post-selection by user is scheduled for the "PDF E-Book creation from thread" to be completed once we upgrade and start connecting our forum's core with external applications at the new server :thumbsup:

When you see "Generate PDF from thread" you will more likely want to check that print button. As soon as I tweak it to select posts for PDF by regular members, select for print can be added easily, so it is a "yes man" for this year. We upgrade this week hopefully, I'm setting up the new server software as we speak. Just need to recompile apache and add spell checking (yes, I'm not forgetting it this time!) and acceleration engine, etc.

So Oz, my mate, your suggestion has been taken and rest assured I'm in to continue actively developing our forum as long as people show their support.

Best regards.
Victor
