XF 1.5 Subpoena: Export Member's Threads/Posts & Conversations

#1
As a site owner, I've received a subpoena to turn over all content for a certain member. I've gone through and PDF'd all of the threads/posts, but I need a way to do the same with their conversations. I have db access, but I'm not real handy with queries... and I'm sure they'll want to see the content in a legible and understandable format.

I'd be grateful for any guidance or suggestions.

Thank you!

Well, I used the "Print Thread" add-on to get the threads and posts printed, but I don't have an option to print/PDF from within the inbox.

Any ideas?

Do you actually need to print the view, or just the contents of posts/PMs? If you just need the contents you can probably export a CSV through phpMyAdmin

Also, although the styling might not be as neat as it would be through an add-on that specifically formats a thread for printing, most browsers will "print" to a PDF file regardless just via their native print option (at least Chrome does this).

Doh, it's been deleted

You may be able to do this with Conversation Essentials.
Yeah, I saw some pages come up about that add-on in search, but then I found out the add-on had been removed.

Well, I need the basic info included who was involved in the conversation and when it took place.

I could do this, but it would require me to go into hundreds of conversations and print each one individually.
