I have a quick question. I would like to download the Must See movie thread into txt format so that I compile a list of all the movies recommended by TPers, but I don't want to have to go through every page and use select all - save as (as I did before), that's a bit messy. Is there any sophisticated way to do it or do I have to use the flintstone tools?

Thanks for your help, it's very much appreciated.

Hi Pardus,

There isn't a way to do this now, but it can be done quicker than what you've done now maybe....

Most people don't notice it, but you can set the amount of posts to higher than the default 10 per page. I just noticed now that it actually says threads/page which is probably not very clear either. Anyway, you can click on this and set it to maximum 40 per page. It will load a bit slower than 10 but you can basically save 4 x as many posts in one go than before using the same method....

Does that help?

Yes, it does, Sam. Thank you very much for that.

Now I can go ahead and compile the list, hehehe... And go and hassle the staff at the DVD rental place (although they are quite likely to have most of the movies, except for the more unknown (in Europe, that is)Chinese ones.) But I will give it a go...
