It has been removed for SEO purposes

I know, but someone mentioned a simple html template mod could restore it. I have a site with chemical formulas on it and members print them off, they do not want to have to print an entire thread or adjust print setup to print it.. or copy paste the data.

I agree fully with sross. The ability to print a single post is fundamental for any system of record. We use the forum to document instructions and how-tos etc. If a thread has hundreds of posts, but you only need to print ONE POST, then this option is required. I can't believe it was cut for "SEO purposes". Someone wasnt thinking functionality.

You realize that there is a showpost.php script, right? It just needs a couple changes (edit out two areas), the addition of the $templater script to render the final template, and the creation of that final template.

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

The page showpost.php is all updated to vB4 coding and included in the vB4 download package. It has a couple of areas you need to comment out that 1) does a redirect (around line 120) and 2) prints as an xml if it does print out (at the end). So, both those areas need to be commented out. Then, just add the $templater code at the end to spit out a template, add the template name to the $globaltemplates array at the beginning of the page, and create the template and viola! You have a showpost.php page. You would then want to edit the postbit templates to link to the showpost.php page instead of the showthread.php page when you click on the post number.

I guess ideally someone would put this together in a product. Might talk to my freelancer about it. Thanks!

Lynne. Thanks for answering, and pointing out that there are components knocking around to do this. Unfortunately, I am not a programmer or developer, just an end user/admin who bought the product to put it to work. Like sross, I'll have to wait until some kind soul takes your pointers and builds a product/addin to implement PRINT THIS POST.

Please note that while vbulletin.org stays on vB 3.x I will be able to print the post with the solution! LOL

sross, please share any successes you have with your freelancer :

I would like to revive the original unanswered question. How to: print a single post?. While Lynne gave pointers, there is still no mod available to non-programmer admins like me (and sross) to allow "print this post". We really need it!

(Members are currently copying and pasting into Word, then printing. Now how silly is that? vB4.x needs a solution to this. Quite honestly, it should be in the core 4.x functionality and not relegated to a mod... although a mod would be better than nothing!)
