Just a thought - I copied the image from the attach folder over to the buttons folder, and it looks ok

It looks ok, but it is a little to small.

Just like the image I've put in the zip.

The pulldown menu is not completely straight.

Great idea.

What format does it print? Regular thread view, custom view, or "print thread" view?

Does it have a limit on thread size in the number of posts?

It looks very much like the printthread view.

Currently it adds ALL posts of a thread into one pdf.

LOL @ amykhar Is this called revence? :P

No it can't, it needs a modification to class_bbcode.php.
For the PDF generation it needs different template for
the quote, php, html & code block.

There are no hooks at that locations


[edit]

Although, it could be done WITHOUT the class_bbcode.php modification!

In that case you need to replace your templates of bbcode_html_printthread, bbcode_code_printthread, bbcode_php_printthread & bbcode_html_printthread with the ones of the PDF thread.

than open pdfthread.php in your favorite editor and search for:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

There it is, a download as pdf without any code modifications...
(Only the look of your printthread will change and might need some further template modifications)
