Well...kind of.

You have to do a page at a time but you can set your page length in your user CP.

Just go to your browser edit function and do a 'select all' then paste into the word processer of your choice. You get a bunch of stuff you don't really want but once in a word document or whatever, you can edit out the headers etc.

That is basically what we did when we moved the content from the OLD free site to this one. Over the years, I've saved several things like this.

I have save a BUNCH of stuff just as Kerry described.

I'm still trying to find out how Ryan has the HAMB set up to "view all" posts/pages in a thread as one. Make saving much easier. Alas, I haven't had any luck yet.

Just ran across this thread and would like to add...

If you have AdobePro on you machine, you'll find a "convert" button in the upper LH corner of your browser screen, immediately below the menu bar.

Use that button to create a pdf of each thread page, saved to wherever you chose in your machine.

I've saved a ton of stuff like that and am grateful to have it for now.

Will miss it once I retire, however.

Another way is, if someone with a Ipad like to do this kind of readings when you are offline is to take screendump and then look/ read the "photos"
To do a screendump just hit the "home button" and the "on/off button at the same time.

It will be saved as a photo so it is easy to read and if needed zoomed too.

Cheers!
