    Help! My threads about to disappear!

    Evenin' all.

    I put a thread on here in which people kindly copied me some useful info, but the last post was a month ago tomorrow so it's about to disappear!

    Is there a way to save it? Can I save the thread or parts of it onto my computer? And can I send it as an e-mail attatchment to my (hopefully)cousin in New Zealand?

    The answers to these and many other questions are outside the bounds of my limited IT competence!

    can you just add a post to it now to keep it on the front page, then you will have time to sort out how to save it?

      Are you sure that isn't considered cheating?

      Oh what the hell - good idea, I'll do it now!

          what you can do is open a word document and copy and paste into it all the information you want to save.

            Aaah - slight snag - my computer has somehow lost word (it's getting a bit old & frazzled - aren't we all!).

            I could try moving over to the lap top - I think that's got word on, but I usually avoid it because it deliberately annoys me. ( Don't bother trying to disprove the malevolence of inanimate objects to me, cos I'm not having it!).

              OK - I'm going to take a deep breath & try to get the lap top to cooperate. I may be gone some time......If I'm not back on here in 30 minutes, send out a search party!

                Wow, that must be a record - it's only taken me 12 minutes to log on!

                Right, I'll have a go & let you know how I get on.

                  Karen,

                  the forum states "Threads will be deleted 1 month after the last post."

                  this means that a thread can be 3 months old and still running, as long as you keep adding to it or nudging it, it doesnt mean that it will be deleted after a month and thats it.

                  this will then enable you to copy the thread and save the info

                  hope this helps

                      Thanks Julie - I guess I'll just have to keep nudging it up till the laptop decides to behave itself. I've gone back onto the PC now & I'm just ignoring it.

                        was it word, or wordpad you have lost?

                        have you tried working from the start bar and looking in the all programs list??

                        start>>>all programs>>>accessories>>>wordpad

                          Hi Karen

                          I have been wondering how I could help but even if I copied it to e-mail to you it would be on word, so you couldn't open it.

                          However, if you click on user tools above, you will see that it says e-mail this page. Could you perhaps just e-mail each page to the person you want to see it and to yourself so that yopu have a copy?

                              Sorry - it's thread tools, not user tools :o

                                  My pc lost "Word" some time ago. I used the search facility to find "Microsoft Word" --- and it did.

                                    Can't you just get someone to copy/paste the info and e-mail it to you ?

                                    Then print it ?

                                    oops sorry didn't realise Chrissie already said that ... I think

                                    Or just print the thread ?

                                        If someone copies it into a (e.g.) Word doc and saves it as rtf it should open into most WP packages. And it shouldn't be able to be a carrier of macro viruses, either.

                                        (Just don't use that technique for anything with graphics: instead of the file-size shrinking, by quite a bit, usually, it will grow astronomically, because the graphics get converted to bmp.)
