    On older IPB boards it was possible to get whole muli-page thread on one page (Print Preview or something similar), it could come in handy if you need to search within a thread or just quickly browse it.
    Does anything like this exist on XF?

    Kind regards,

    Mike

    Sounds like a tool to kill a server.
    Wouldn't that be a huge load on the server ?
    I'd use it alot.
    Less Ads displayed.

    A safer request might be to double the number of posts listed from 30 to 60.

    Keep in mind, moving page to page in Xenforo is so fast, it makes your request less "needed".

    IMO

    If it was only available to admins, not really.
    But that is my choice anyway isn't it ?
    Whenever googling for something and my results land on a VB site I ALWAYS select printable version and click on show XX number of posts per page.

    Easier to read without all the crap and cheesy graphics and avatars and crappy sigs and NO ADS.

    If the site owner has the printable version disabled I go to the next google search result.

    For example:

    This is so much easier to read:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/printthread.php?t=1700174&pp=50

    Than this nightmare:
    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1700174

    Good example gordy.
    I see no ads on your xda printable thread.
    I suspect if more people used them .... that option might be removed.

    That wasn't the request.

    Point is: It's my site, if something I add to it lunches the server it's MY choice. ;)
