Print thread

I must be blind. I have looked everywhere and cannot find out how to print a thread. Usually, forums have a "print thread" button that allows you to print out multiple page threads as one output. Some reformat to a printer-friendly format, some include pics and attachments.

Where do I find a print feature here?

Right click on your mouse, select print or print preview and voila, its printed.

Thanks, but that does not print more than one page of the thread.

When I choose print preview (all) pages show up for printing.

I tried as Terry suggested and it works. Adjust your page fit to 100% so you can read it. This thread on my PC (XP, w/ IE 8.0) goes to 2 pages, maybe 3 with this reply.

Go to a MULT -PAGE thread, like this one:


See how it has three "pages" of messages?
Try to print it all at once with one print command.

Sorry you're having trouble with this. I just went thru this and it works for me. Using the thread below with three forum pages.


I right clicked and clicked again from the drop down menu up top on one of the squares that lights up with 'View Full Width (Alt+W)' and the tiny page you first saw gets bigger. Then I click on the SHRINK TO FIT drop down menu also up on top and choose 100% from its drop down menu. This size change, reduces the original 13 pages (three forum pages) down to five printable pages that are listed at the bottom and its all very readable. This captures all three pages you see in the thread in five printed pages. Then click on the print icon and your default (meaning automatically) should be set to ALL under the Page Range. Then click print and all five pages print.

Thanks for your persistence and patience.
Maybe I'm using the wrong description. I followed your example, and got the five pages. But that is NOT the entire thread.


Here is the last post at the end of your 5 pages of print-out. It is actually the last post at the first "page" of messages:


There are 3 more "pages" of messages that are not included on the print.

I'm sorry to be such a pain. I'm sure I'm just not clear in my words. Sorry.

Thanks again,
