vB Version: 3.6.7 Rating: (7 votes - 4.57 average) Installs: 76
Released: 07 Jul 2007 Last Update: 07 Jul 2007 Downloads: 770
Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

Keywords: SHOWTHREAD, PDF, Abobe, export, download, thread

Description:
Allows you to download an entire thread in PDF format, viewable in any PDF viewer such as Adobe Acrobat or Foxit Reader.

Details:
Previously, there was a modification that performed this task however that modification is no longer supported and the backend used was seriously out-of-date and suffered from quite a few bugs. I've gone ahead and created this modification around an entirely different backend, one which works quickly and flawlessly.

Requirements:
  • PHP Version 4.0.4 or greater
  • html2ps (link)
  • ps2pdf (link)

Notes:
Please note, these prerequesits may already be installed on your system. If you're unsure, simply install the modification and upon usage it will inform you if something is missing.

If you happen to be fortunate enough to be using Debian, the above requirements can be installed with the following packages:

Usage:
Under "Thread Tools", simply select "Download as PDF" which will be located under "Show Printable Version". Easy, eh?



Installation:
  1. Download and unzip the pdfthread101.zip archive.
  2. Upload necessary files to their respective locations.
  3. Import the product-pdfthread.xml via the Product Manager.
  4. ???
  5. Profit!

Notes:
All template modifications are made automatically. They attach to pretty common text locations, so modified styles shouldn't* be a problem.

I don't think it ever worked to begin with. I went through the trouble of installing but if I had threads that were 10-30 pages long it would not save more than a couple of pages of a thread as pdf..

I second that question. Has anyone tried this for VB4? Or can anyone recommend another way/add-on to accomplish this?
