I'd like to figure out how to generate a printer-friendly version (by "printer-friendly" I mainly mean the fewest number of pages ... I"m running a little low on toner tonight) too. I've just been perusing the "Separate vs Connected Knowing" thread on the Teaching Online forum. It's fascinating but very long. My print preview showed 10 pages. I stepped down my browser font and got it down to 6 pages.
A printable format of a forum could omit stuff like "Display replies in nested form" options and the ratings options and the reply link. It could also omit the jump menu and search field at the top. It seems to me a printable view could be a new display out of the data file, just pulling these relevant fields.
I've tried to enter this and other suggestions at http://bugs.moodle.org
but I've never been able to log on. When I select "Create an Account" I enter name and email but never get an email containing a password
At the bottom of the page is a login prompt that asks for a password. And I tried entering the email address I've used in the past when trying to crete an account and then clicking on the "email password" button but I never get any mail. Martin even wrote me once and told me to login putting a letter in front of a password and I tried that and got nowhere. I make an awful lot of mistakes. Maybe I messed it up somehow.
