just had an interesting throught jump into my mind and a few others thought it was a semi interesting idea

some threads go for pages and pages, it is great to have all that information online and available, but sometimes i dont have the chance to get online if i need to access it, so i was wondering about something like a pdf option/save as for a thread? didnt know if it had been considered before or not? even when attempting to print out a thread, i have to do a page at a time.

threads such as these

What might be more useful would be an additional display mode, akin to the printable version, where you can view the entire thread in one page, minus all the ads, unnecessary icons, etc. I reckon that would also tax the server a whole lot less than generating a pdf for download. Once you have the full thread loaded up, you can then take any of the free pdf creators to print to pdf.

I know that currently you can set number of posts per page to view, but that's more of an overall setting, rather than an on-demand setting, which would be useful for something like this.
