    The Option to Download

    Would it be at all possible to provide an option to download stories (either by chapter or story)?

    By that, I ask whether there is a code that can be inserted that allows the user to download a story in the archives (either in full or by chapter) and save it onto disk or desktop? I only ask because I know a few sites that have this option. I was wondering if something like that could ever be made available on MNFF.

    Thanks!

    *This has more to do with the main MNFF archives than with the beta boards, so please move or remove this if it does not belong here.

    It's not a download function exactly (and I'm not sure how feasible one would be) but in the mean time, if you click the print icon, it will open a new window with a 'clean' version of the fic. On each chapter page there is an option to open the chapter individually or the whole story and there is also a whole story print icon on the summary page. From the print option, it's relatively easy to copy and paste the whole story across onto MS Word to be saved. It's all fairly simple if not quite as quick as a download button.

    Adrian won a QSQ! Thanks to Minnabird for the beautiful banner. Click on it to read Stolen Magic - the story of the second wizarding war through a very different character's eyes.

    Additionally, if you have a pdf printer installed on your computer, you can save the "print version" of the story (to be created like described by coolh5000) as a pdf file, depending what you find easier to read.

    Yeah, I saw the print/html function. I'm just lazy. ^_~

    Since we have a method to do what you are wishing to do, I am going to lock this discussion.

    There seems to be a couple of options to choose from, at least.
