    Thank you, Andy, for working with me on creating this invaluable add-on! My members have been asking for our posts to be turned into a book and with this add-on I can easy export the threads I choose! The add-on works like a charm. Thank you!

    Hi Andy, great add-on, simple and effective!

    One option you might want to consider making available is the option to strip out the usernames from the thread when exporting.

    This would help preserve user privacy in cases where it is sensitive (sometimes we as administrators need to show a thread to 3rd parties, but don't want to divulge the user's names.)

    Hi Andy another great option for all of us.
    Looks like a great addition, maybe even as a core. I agree the removal of user name if possible would really complete this addon.

    Ummm... so copy and paste? Why would I need to install an addon to do something that's easy to do anyway? . . . You know.. like I highlighted the instructions and copied them into this thread.

    Becase 1) at least in FF, I can only highlight / right-click / copy / paste the viewable page (it doesn't scroll as I click/drag to highlight) and 2) doing such results in a paste like this:

    Hey AndyB... I found an error with your mod.

    You are using the template modification system to add your tool menu link... but you also delete the existing template hook in the process. This means other addons can't use the hook.

    Nice addon but it would be nice if you can export to a document like pdf or word.

    Would it be possible to add the ability to display the attachments inline?

    Because for a 20 page thread that would be cumbersome?

    Agree.

    Have some users interested in us installing this - but I'm a bit worried: Given say a 384-page thread with 7,600 replies, is this going to crash the user's web browser putting all that text into one giganto textbox?

    Hello and thanks so much for this addon. I just wondered if there is an option to export the threads as HTML not text. Would be very helpful to do this. Thanks.
