    I understand that there is a forum software add-on that will enable printing an entire thread. Any chance we could get that feature? Thanks!

    I'll second that request. It would be a nice feature.

    And to clarify print an entire thread in a printer-friendly format.

    David has been putting off upgrading to the newest version of Xenforo because a lot of things will change and some of you are, um, resistant to change and unnecessarily vocal about it. :)

    Third party plugins tend to fail in upgrades because they're built for the current version so I highly doubt any new ones will be installed until we get upgraded.

    I'm surprised XenForo doesn't have that functionality built in since vBulletin did.

    vB had it for back in the dial up AOL days. People would rather send a long thread to the dot matrix printer than tie up the phone line. :cool:

    Theoretically this could all be done at the theme / template level as well with a print stylesheet instead of a third party add on. However, if an upgrade is in the works within the next year It would be worth holding off and just adding it into the theme after the upgrade.

    I have upgraded a XenForo Community from 1.5 to 2.1 in the past year. And the biggest gripe everyone had was the notifications / alerts. They no longer drop down on hover and you have to click on them. Adding back the auto drop down would require custom coding as it's no longer built in.
