Default How to Archive Posts Offline & 500 Max Limit

My coach has a few modifications and many are documented here on the WOG. So I wanted to find the posts which describe those mods and archive them to a hard disk or thumb drive for later use offline. Perhaps I will also print them out so I can hand a “book” to the eventual next owner . For our M380 members, this information might also be of interest so I’d make the final PDF product available here on the WOG.

Finding the first 500 is easy, just follow John Finn’s excellent primer: HERE. One can search by thread or individual posts organized in ascending date order from your very first WOG posting. Working in ascending date order, one can then select which ones to save to an offline device in PDF format. I found that idea HERE. That I can tell pictures which are clickable at the bottom but which are not imbedded, will need to be clicked on and saved individually. Perhaps someone knows a way to do that automatically? So all it takes is time to sort through and save the pertinent posts or threads. However...

To Moderator/Administrator - Unfortunately, I could not find a specific “Enter date to start looking” function. “Ascending” returns the oldest 500 posts/threads and “Descending” the 500 most recent ones. But what about those in-between? How do I find those?

Van, the 500 limit is likely a default, but it settable. I checked with Randy to make sure he didn't have a problem with me changing it, so the limit is now 2500. That is an arbitrary number, which I chose by setting the number above your total number of posts. I doubt that the number will cause any issues, but if anybody sees a problem let me know and I will change it back.

Hey Don--

What other search parameters are configurable or adjustable?

Actually, I do wonder if I have the power to search for a keyword and return results in a different format. Chronological order would be the nazz!

Glad to see you're active moderating

Very few relevant configurable parameters. Only other one I could see that might matter is the number of items returned per page, currently 25. For Van's purposes a larger number might help, but for most searches it is plenty long enough.


Advanced Search does have sorting options, and default is chronological descending.



As far as moderation goes, I've never really been a moderator here. My admin privileges were originally so I could setup embedded YouTube videos, and Randy decided not to revoke it. I only jump in when it is something like this thread, where I could see the answer and made the change only with approval.

Way back in time John Finn and I had a plan just in case something happened to us,or to John.
Those plans included Don,as an admin guy in the backup mode.
Don has been a great friend and hes sharp as heck on the running of the forums.
He can be on the admin group as long as he wants to be.
Thanks Don for the help and friendship.
