That will only print the numer of records allowed per viewing page, not the whole thread.  You can try raising the number of posts per page but if you try over a 100 or so the system defaults back to 20.

Only the print button within SMF prints all the records in a thread, but only in text and only if the thread is relatively small, some of my threads have 170000 posts in them and I want to print the whole thread as you would see when you do use the browser print button i.e. WUSIWYG.

I do understand that, but there's a problem in trying to print through the print view when the topic is large enough.
Many server setups out there will simply refuse to serve the page due to it's size then....

Not to mention likely your browser going nuts trying to handle a page that big.

Yes this is something I have inherited and I'm trying to reduce he size of the DB but the owner want to keep full records of what is there but woould accept a print out of a thread but ony as it is seen "on screen" not the print option within SMF.  One of our member died and they set up a book of condolence.  They then wanted this thread printed as a book for her family.  The only way I could do it was copy and paste each individual page into word then create a pdf for the printers.  It was 2000 pages and took me quite a while.

I could split the old archives and then recombine the resultant print outs but I just don't have the time hence me looking for an easy method.

You could have just printed page by page from the topic directly to pdfs and then combine them.
( And even first set a higher number of posts / page to save time. )

at 15 posts per page that would be 11540 pages even if I can double that it's still pretty impractical.

I know! as I say I inherited these problems.  The db is 1.1GB and I'm about to add a fultext search index taking it to 1.6.  Some of the threads are huge!

Has there any solution been found to this problem yet ?

I am having the same problem now.


Otherwise, do you know how to do it this way for SMF 2.x ?
