I asked vb.com and they said no but...
I think there should be a downloadable manual so I could print it out and study how to work on this GREAT bbs offline.

Well ... I would like something like that so I knew the interaction between files a little better when screwing around with the forum.

Then again - If I was writing, hacking or looking at code I would be on my pc and likely on the net and could pop into the hacking forum to ask should I get stuck somewhere =)

But my problem is for the "manual" it is only available as web pages. NOT downloadable (unless I am missing something).

If you were so inclined you could just find the part of the manual you wanted and simply print if off.

The first thing I was refering to would show table fields with lines drawn from table to table to show the relationships between DB tables. See attachment for example.

I did a google for flow chart. I'm not good with explaining stuff, so I found a picture illustration! woohoo!

I realize that but I just wanted THE WHOLE MANUAL in printed form without having to go to EVERY web page and print them.

Don't think it will be released, just copy the stuff you need to Word and print it?
