Maybe a stupid question but I cannot find the way to display a printable version of a thread or the Print thread button.
Is this possible on the forum?

Well you can first convert the thread into a PDF file.. then you can easily print it..

Here, use any of the following websites to convert the webpage into a PDF file.. there must be some software(s) available for this too but first give any of those websites a try...

- http://www.htmlpdf.com/
- http://pdfmyurl.com/

That is not what we (at least I) ask for. There used to be and is in other forums an option to display the thread with less graphics and other things and more posts per page - so that the PDF is not bloated, but almost "text only". That is what I miss and what I think to remember was possible in this forum earlier.

Regards,
Jan

Aha.. I just found out how to do that too!

Scroll down and switch to XDA 2010 theme... Now after the page reloads, see under Thread Tools and click on Show Printable Version.. Hope this helps you

(PS: To revert, just change back to the new XDA theme)
