View Full Version : play-by-post backup feature

02-16-2009, 01:37 PM
considering the furor that was caused by the removal of that rpg/character sheet site recently, i was giving thought to backing up the play-by-posts that i am running, and participating in. however, it seems that there is no easy way to do so.

i can save the html file, i can show the printable version and save that... but i was thinking that it would be great to have a feature that allowed the textual saving of an entire thread, or even sub-forum. saving it page by page certainly works, but takes a lot of time.

ideally, i would be able to select an option that would allow me to save the entire sub-forum containing my play-by-post game in text or html format, including all pages, in a single click. sort of like how i can select all my inbox messages and save those as a single text file.

is this a possible feature, please?

The printable version is going to be your best bet. That allows you to see up to 100 posts at a time as well.
