I've often wondered this myself but never really had a need to do so. Anyway, suppose you would like to download a thread and save the contents, maybe use the text to gather a lengthy reply while offline. I couldn't figure out how to do so and my searches lead me to believe it really wasn't an option.

I added some code that should allow anyone to do so now. Follow these easy steps to download an entire thread as an easy to read text file.

1- Go to the thread you want to save
2- At the top of the first post, click on where it says "Thread Tools" drop down arrow
3- You should now see an option that says "Download this thread"
4- This should download the entire thread as a text file and prompt you where you would like to save

Please let me know if anyone has any problems or questions.

And partial credit goes to Revelarts!! He brought up the idea and gave good reasoning, I simply added the code. Good call, Rev!!

It has never even occurred to me to download a thread and save it, let alone how to do it.

It's like the world now has so many more possibilities! Thanks!
