I am taking Shannon Gifford's Speed tailoring class. The message board os very long. How can I save it? To print it out would be require alot of paper and ink. I would like to save it on my computer to a file. Some people have reported they can only get the first 50 pages to print. Because of all the valuable information in the massage board, I would like to have it for future reference. Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Anne. This applies both the class board, and to any other long thread.

1) click on "printable version" icon at the bottom of the page

2) click on "File", "Save As" (or some such command, such as "save with pictures" or "save page"; it varies depending on the browser you are using)

3) select a directory (folder) (the default should be fine) and give the file a name, such as "speed tailoring page 1". (It should save as file type HTML or HTM.)

4) Go to the address bar at the top of your window. It will start with something like http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/printableboard ...

5) Append to the end of this address the following: &pn=2

6) Follow the steps above to save the page to your computer (or you can actually print it out)

7) If the thread is long enough, change the 2 at the end to 3, etc.

HTH

I copied the entire thing (select all -right mouse) after making sure to add the &pn=2
I then pasted it into word as a document and saved it. It is too long to print

Hi Anne and Chimene
Thank you for your help. One more question. I can only get pages 1-50 to go to the new folder. I tried to cut and paste but again not able to send all of it. What do I need to do to get the pages beyond 50 to transfer? Thanks
Anne

Where are you getting stuck? Perhaps if you state the steps you have taken so far. Are you able to see pages 51 on your computer screen? You have to do that before you can save the pages.

Hi Anne, I saw pages 1-90. I clicked on printable version. Then I did File, Save As. I had put the extension &pn=2 and got pages 1-50 in my new folder.; then tried &pn=3 but only got pages 1-50 to go to to my new folder. If I go to page 51 and try to get the pages 51-90, I don't get a prinable version icon. If I cut and paste after selecting "save all" I only get to the date Jan 20 which is pages 1-50. I hope this helps you to know what I have done. By the way, what does the &pn=2 stand for?
Thanks Anne

I think you are putting the &pn=2 in the wrong spot.

It stands for page number = 2.

So, when you click on the "printable version" icon, it brings up a big long page that contains pages 1 through 50. This is considered "page 1 of the printable version". Save that, and give it any old name you please. I might suggest, for instance, "speed tailoring board 1".

After you finish saving, you will be looking at that big long page again: pages 1 through 50 of the board. And just to remind you, this is called "page 1 of the printable version".

So, you need to see "page 2 of the printable version". This is where the &pn=2 comes into play.

Oh - what browser are you using? Windows Internet Exporer? Not that it really matters, but knowing might help if you get stuck.

Up near the top of your browser screen should be the white bar with the address, which will have the address, or URL, of the printable page.
http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sewingclasses/printableboard.pl?t=xxxxx

(I substituted xxxxx for the real numbers.)

Click in the white box, then press the "end" key on your keyboard. This will bring you after the numbers at the end of the address. Then type &pn=2. Hit the enter key.

This will bring up the 2nd printable screen, which will contain pages 51-100.

Now go & save this. Call it something like "speed tailoring board 1".

Hopefully this helps. I will PM the actual address to you.
