Yes. It's possible. I want to have printer-friendly versions of all forum stuff and improve the printer-friendly versions of the articles. It's on my list. But I have hundreds of things on the list so it hasn't been tackled. I've been taxed with content stuff rather than tech stuff and likely will be for the foreseeable future. There are a ton of things I want to pursue, however, and this is definitely one of them.

Thank you for the note! These things help me prioritize stuff. For example, I personally never print things, but I know many, many users of the Internet do.

Cheers

Your wellcome Nathan!

I use some of the articles in my Traininggroup, to emphisise some technical points in the fencing. And sometimes when I travel I have some of the topics in print to read. It is good fun.

How about allowing a PDF version of each article to be dowloaded? I know there are a few articles on techniques and a few reviews I'd like to have handy like that.

Wonderful idea that's already on my list but is relatively low in priority for me. To do it justice requires a fair amount of coding to the basic way content is delivered here on the site. There are some articles, in particular, I had thought of manually doing as PDF docs but I just haven't found the time to do it.

Thank you for the offer.

The conversion is easy.. I can have the site do it automatically with a simple coded routine. But that delivers a very, very ugly and armature printed product and not one I want to see distributed as branded with the myArmoury.com logo.

It's the taking the assets in, doing the typography, re-doing the graphics, paginating the articles, removing links, changing online-only behavior, and reformatting all to work well in a printed medium that takes the time.
