Printer Friendly Version?

Hi I was just wondering if there is a printer friendly version of the MM forum. I would like to print whole threads. Other forums call it a lite version or mobile. Basically it takes out all the colors except the from photos.

To give an example it look like this from the Home Shop Machinist Forum. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net/pri...?t=39202&pp=40

Thanks Gerald

Thanks Gerald, I was quickly running out of blue ink and the stuff is not cheap.

Russell, are you seeing the pics in that version? I did see them earlier, but now they only show as links?

Gerald was the Printer Version always under thread tools or is this something new?

It has always been under thread tools - I made no changes because of your request.

Gerald I did a little searching over on the Vbulletin website. I looks like this is the way the program was written. Others are really upset that they cannot view pictures. Most are hoping in Version 4 the problem will be fixed. One member did post this but I didnt read anything to suggest that it works and I really dont know what it does.

I just moved to 3.8 and I find this quite an issue. Our site is pretty image heavy, that's why people come to our site to see the images. I am sure that Jelsoft could provide us with a patch that would allow the Printable version to display images. It shouldn't be that difficult.


For those who can't wait for Jelsoft to come up with a solution on this issue, here is a simple way to enable pictures in the printthread.php.

In printthread.php find:

Code:

$bbcode_parser =& new vB_BbCodeParser_PrintableThread($vbulletin, fetch_tag_list());

Replace that with (or comment that line out and under it add):

Code:

$bbcode_parser =& new vB_BbCodeParser($vbulletin, fetch_tag_list());




Should mention that the version I linked as an example has "Powered by vBulletin Version 3.5.4"

Thanks for doing the homework Russell!

I will look deeper into it once I am more awake later this morning.

I made that change to printthread.php, but I notice no difference in the display.

The official response seems to be "Currently Printthread is working as designed. It is not designed to include images at this time. You would have to wait until the feature is rewritten, it is not a bug that will be fixed in a patch."

I am afraid that we are snookered.

Still no pictures. Thank You for trying. This might be a good thing as well. Then I can print out the pictures that I find helpful and not waste anymore color ink. I have a HP printer and I think it is cheaper to go out and buy a new printer each time I run out of ink.

Yea, I dumped my HP for a Canon. The ink is cheaper. The pictures don't need to be in color, use BW.

Everyone laughs that I don't have a color printer...

...until I tell them that I have NEVER needed to buy a new laser toner cartridge
the toner does not dry up if I don't print anything for a few weeks
the printer never refuses to print a black and white document because it's out of yellow ink
I never need to run a "head cleaning cycle" that uses up 1/4 of the ink cartridge
laser toner is easy to "iron-on" to circuit boards to etch the copper
laser toner is wax- so it's waterproof....
