Hi there,

Just wondering if there is any way to save blogs, or individual blog posts, via the site? For example, can they be downloaded via pdf? I noticed under 'manage' and 'print' you can have a blog printed in book form via Into Real Pages, but what I'm looking for at present is just an easy way to download or otherwise save blog posts or whole blogs via the website, rather than (for example) manually going through copying and pasting blog posts into Word or Google docs, etc.

I've thought of this pretty belatedly, so I've got hundreds of posts I'd like to save - if I end up needing to save them all manually then so be it, but if there's a quicker way of doing it that I've missed, then it would be great to know!

An export functionality used to exist (save to PDF and save to HTML), but it had a massive performance impact on the server, so when site-income took a nosedive at the start of covid, and the site had to switch hosts, this functionality was unfortunately removed.

I don't know if Peter (the site admin) has any plans to restore it at present; I can imagine that if he does, he might limit it to supporters? (I have no knowledge about this, just what I'd expect.)

So, yes, at present manual is the only way - but just in case, check back after the weekend to see if Peter has chimed in about future plans.
