Does anyone know how to make a backup of a thread?
I have a few threads I would like to have in a offline format. I would like to save one thread with 6 pages, does anyone know of a simple program to use that can copy all the text for me. I don't need the avatars, youtube videos or icons just the text. I would like it to be in a single file, not multiple files.


I have already copy and pased most of it, but it would be handy if I had everything that was stated in the thread availible without my sloppy copy and pasting.

Thanks in Advance!

Go to Save Page As in your browser and download to a desktop folder or a flashdrive.
When you open it later it will show the page in you browser but you'll be offline.
The URL will show C:// etc. You can copy and paste it into a new .doc, edit it there and combine the collected pages into one document.

Re: Does anyone know how to make a backup of a thread?
for a small thread like that, the easiest way is make a new folder on your hard drive (call it by the thread name to make it easy to find)and in that folder make new ones called page1, page2, page 3 etc for the number of pages you want to save
then if you are using firefox top left is `File', click on it, in there is `save page as'
click on that and save in the folder you made for that page
bingo entire page is saved

internet destroyer (IE) has the same, `File' then `save as'



go to next page, and repeat using next folder

saves the entire page including everything- pics, avatars, links

Thanks Guys, I kinda figured I'd have to do it that way. Sometimes you can drum up a snazzy little program that does all that for you. I did try through IE to save the pages but it gave my PC and little hemmorage. Alot a data for the clip board, I'll have to go and try it on my quad core later. I guess sewing each of the lages togeather might be the best plan.

Thanks A bunch!

I've done this a lot-you don't try to save the whole page to clipboard -that will clog memory-but; if you go to File click on Internet Explorer you'll see Save As..., if you click that it'll give you the option of saving the whole page as is into a Folder.
You can make a new one on the Desktop by left clicking you mouse with the cursor on the Desktop and you'll see a little dialog bxox with New... go to Folder and it'll make a new folder on the desktop. If you bliue line the Folder there you cabn chane its name and save stuff there.

Re: Does anyone know how to make a backup of a thread?
yea i saved the 12 pages that way, ill try importing them into dreamweaver later on my lappy and stich them into a single file. I want to be able to save the entire thread in a single file for easy storage and sorting in a offline format. If all else fails I may just copy and paste the info into word.

I have ran into programs that allow you to copy a single website, you can sepcify how many links deep to save also, trying that on GLP would either do two things, it would render my pc into a state of cardiac arrest or run up a massive bandwith tab at my isp. lol
