Downloading threads

Post by Bisgea on February 4th 2011, 1:46 pm

There's this forum whose founder has decided to close down. I fear that he will delete it on Sunday. He does not want to give the admin account to someone else. So my question is, is there a way to download the forum, threads, and posts?

Software is available on the web for that if you search for it eg. http://www.httrack.com/ Smile

You can then save it to your PC for offline browsing :wouhou:

You can try what musket has said. other then that all you can do is just copy your post and past them to another forum or notepad?

What settings would I have to use to download just posts and images? Cuz using HTTrack, it also downloads pages linked by posts which are outside the forums.

May I remind you that double/triple posting isn't tolerated unless separated by 24 hours (Use the edit button) Wink

Erm, the forum won't run otherwise without a admin.

However, try what the others said.
