READMORE expanded in notes when printing pages

hello,

I don't know if the issue has been discussed before (all I've found on the subject of "print readmore" is this and this, but they don't seem to apply).

what I'm asking for is a simple feature: having <readmore> tags expanded by default in all replies when clicking on a nodes "(print) w/replies" link (that is, a displaytype=print&replies=1 page).

sometimes I like to print a PerlMonks thread to read it offline (say in the long, long trip from office to home). it seems to me a little nonsense to be able to print a whole thread but having to click (and print separately) replies that has a <readmore> tag. or, more commonly, losing parts of the discussion because I overlooked some <readmore> tags here and there.

I suppose this should be a simple patch, and it will surely make my long, long trips more entertaining :-)

cheers,
Aldo

    As a temporary solution, if you set Override <readmore> tags in your User Settings, it will apply to your printed nodes.

    The drawback is that it will expand readmore tags in normal display as well.

    If you can live with that, you may fulfill your needs without challenging pmdev's laziness and impatience. ;)

      thanks, gmax. I think I can live with it, but I wonder if browsing with the Override <readmore> tags turned on is an unnecessary waste of PM's horsepower and bandwidth :-)

      OTOH, I could investigate some sort of quick command line script to change my setting from "don't override" to "override" when I need to print from the Monastery. I will look into it...

      you may fulfill your needs without challenging pmdev's laziness and impatience. ;)
      hey, I was just giving them a chance to exercise their hubris :-)

    On a bit of a humorous note, if you drive yourself to work then I for one would prefer we not implement this feature. There are enough crazies on the road. On my way in this morning, I saw a guy with the WSJ spread across his driving wheel completely blocking his view of anything. He was apparently employing the force as a method of vehicle navigation.

    Disclaimer: I am in no way suggesting that dada is an unsafe driver. I am most certain that he is responsible like all the other monks here.

      I think the worst I've seen in that regard was on FOX news the other day. Woman was pulled over for erratic driving. Turns out, she was breast feeding a baby while she was driving! Could you imagine if she hit anything with enough force to deploy the airbag?! Ack, I could not believe it, how stupid some people are!
      sheesh... you can rest assured, I meant "long, long subway trips". I can really do no harm reading there.

      and there's more: when I come to my car (yes, I have to take both car and subway to get to my office -- that's the pain of living in a big city), I sit down and, if I'm reading something really interesting, I don't start the engine until I finished the page :-)

      cheers,
