    I believe in both IE and Firefox you can save a page by clicking on File >> Save page as >> Web page, complete.

    Just one page. Unfortunately that's probably the most efficiant way to do it. You can cut down on the amount of pages by changing your posts per page to 50 on the Options > Display Settings page.

    Adobe is slightly more efficient (if you have it) since opening a web page there lets you right-click on the page and view all the links on the page--just find the links for page numbers and highlight those, and it'll load them all up.

    This is really handy with PMs, since I don't have to click all of them. You can save an entire page of 50 PMs with 2 clicks, and go do something else while it loads each page by itself. It's really handy.

    But if you have to save PMs without adobe, that would be bad. I tried that once, and it drove me nuts. :(

    The IE and Firefox method isn't too bad for threads, it's just annoying to have to name the file every time you save the next page. It shouldn't take more than 30 mins to do a 10,000 post thread though.

    I'm actually getting a lot calmer now that I am able to save everything I want. All I need is the time to do it.

    He's talking about Acrobat, and that really is the most effective way of backing things up.

    But I honestly don't think you need to unless you just want a personal copy. The move is being done with German efficiency and precision, by someone who deals with massive coporate intranets and servers on a daily basis. He's the owner of one of Europes largest internet message boards, and has handled much bigger projects successfully in the past.

    Chill peeps, it's nothing to stress about.

    I'm getting the giggles imagining that being said by someone Scottish.

    Go back to UBB with OpenForum. Here's an example, [link=http://episteme.arstechnica.com/6/ubb.x]http://episteme.arstechnica.com/6/ubb.x[/link].

    Good stuff.

    I haven't read any of this thread, so my apologies if this makes no sense.

    which adobe acrobat? I've got a fanfic with a lot of replies (my only fanfic that has gotten that many) and I really want to back up the whole thread because I want to keep the replies. I'm willing to buy the software because I'd like to have a backup copy. For memories and such.

    Liz, if you don't want to get Adobe, you can use your browser to save threads.

    I went to adobe online and you can register to get 5 free pdf files made. And I did that with my RPG thread from over a few years ago that still holds a special place in my heart it being the first ever JC RPG that was held in the YJCC. Now to rummage thru my pms and find the ones that are most important. I may save that for my next day off.

    When we've moved, can Fanfic get an Obi-Torture board, just so we know what to expect when going into the story? :) It'd make things so much easier on the reader!

    I suggest reading. It tends to convey information.

    Don't worry about it.

    You can't do anything about it anyway.

    I'm sticking my entire PM database into one pdf... in theory, you could stuff every thread you wanted into one, too. Five free ones sounds like a great idea.

    L T S(teal) : Large Server with Space for JC Archives that are still sitting on my server, right there, entirely unaccessible to all peoples except me (but look really nice).

    Also L T R(ent without pay) people who still care about the forums and able to follow strict instructions on the methods to save threads in which they could eventually be integrated into the archives with minial headache and hassle from me. (I'm lookin at you KW) Please e-mail, as seen in profile.

    yes, could someone please give us step by step instructions on how to save our stuff to adobe acrobat? I have adobe acrobat, too; think it was part of my MS Office, but I can also get a copy from my work. Some of us are not very computer operational geeks/geekettes. I know just enough to be dangerous to myself as a keyboard user. thanks. :D

    PDF is a good way to save the threads so you can read them again later, but they will not enable you to upload them back to a new board.

    Weird, but there's not a single thread, post, or PM I care to save. I make the post, enjoy the thread, and move on. I can understand Fan Fic and things like that. But the spoiler forum to me is a post it and go type of place. I have no interest in reading about last week's weather.
