    Hi there,
    i´m hosting a wedding-community and my members like to save / export a thread to a PDF.
    I know, there are add ons to print a thread, but is there a way export a thread?
    Would be nice, if someone could help me, and sorry for my english:)
    Greetings,

    Nice Idea.

    But browsers such as Chrome offer in the print command option - save as PDF

    When we developed that add-on:
    Thread Print - ThemesCorp.com

    Our goal was at first to provide the capability to create the pdf. Our attempt more or less failed.
    There are libraries that provides the capability to create pdf from php but all them will fail on images due to server rights issue (security purpose you know).

    And as Au lait said, your browser already does that better than any php stuff :)

    @derandechser our free add-on I pointed to is more like a printable thread version display which, with a pdf creator free software, would let you print to pdf, with formatting.
