hi,

there are some threads that i find informative and i wish to archive(download or copy) for future reference.

is there any way or tools i can use or i really have to manually copy every post?

i read somewhere that a thread will be pruned after a certain period of inactivity.

Hi there,

You can try saving as a webpage instead of copying post by post. Thanks for your suggestion though, we will consider this function in our future updates.

Hi there, thanks mods for replying!

Right now i am using print version of the thread to save as either pdf or word.

but the problem i'm facing are some threads are really long as in there are like 50 over pages or even more after loading 50 posts in a thread. Some images or videos are not loaded as well

My suggestion is perhaps the admins can consider letting us buy credits to spend on archiving threads for our future reference to cover data storage cost rather than pruning them

hi there, it works but i can only use it on 1 page for a thread. is there any easier way i can archive an entire thread rather than page by page? sorry I ain't that good with IT.

I dunno. You can adjust to have more posts per page but I Guess you gotta go page by page
