I am so jazzed about the new feature, of being able to save all PM's and delete them off our server.  However, I've tried a couple times tonight, clicking on "Save all PM's," and a new window opens, and it says "Done" at the bottom, but the page is totally blank.  I'm using Firefox.  I'll try again.  Anyone else successful or not successful with this saving PM's?

I'm using Firefox too and my PMs just saved fine.  :s)

Better wait for the feedback from an Admin.

Kathy, thanks for reporting the problem. I am also using Firefox and it works just fine.

When you click "Save all PMs," the browser should load all your PMs on one page. After it loads completely, you can then save it as an html document.

The layout is very similar to the printed version of forum newsletter

Can you please try if IE works and keep us updated? Thanks!

I tried in both Firefox and IE.  I'm in my Inbox and I click Save All PM's, and I get a blank page.  Maybe, duh...do you have to select them first?  Wouldn't seem so.  But I can try that.  I'll try again and let you know.  Thanks.

Kathy, thanks for the update. Selecting the messages is not needed.

Have you tried at a different computer?

The link at the top of the newsletter is incorrect, Cham.  I did that at first also, but it takes us to the Montreal gathering, or some such -- I don't really remember right now what thread the link was to.

But, if you read the part in the newsletter about this new feature, and use the link there, it takes you to the right place.

As Ethan just said, I'll have to try it on another computer.  Weird.  Except that I don't want to save them at work, on that computer; but I can try anyway, see if the problem is my computer, though I wouldn't know why it would be.  Anyway, if it works at my work computer, I can bring my portable hard drive there, as that is where I was going to save the PM's anyway.  Cool.

Thanks for the feedback Kathy , you meant the link in the news box don't you?  The one in the Newsletter is fine.  I modified it for now in the news box and it's working fine.  Since many of us will meet in Brussels soon we might get answers, Fausta reported some issues too.

Sorry, I didn't explain that well.  Yes, I meant the "news box" link, not in the newsletter itself.  Thanks for fixing it.

You just had to say about Brussels, huh?  Shit, that's hard.   :\'(  (Sorry -- I'm lucky to always go to the meets I am able to go to...but I'm bummed I can't go to Brussels.  OT...but I actually even looked up flights the other night (about $1200 US I think it was).  As if.  Okay, bum-rant over.  My glass is half full, not half empty.  :)

Still not working for me.  ("Is it something I said?" :)

I tried on work computer today, and got the same thing.  I'm in my Inbox, and click on "Save all PMs."  It opens a page, URL "http://ennisjack.com/index.php?action=pmsaveall" but the page is totally blank.  Though it says "Done" down in lower left corner.

Which internet browser do you use?
I use firefox mozilla and once I click on Save all pms it opens a page with all the pms , all I then have to do is click on save in the file barre.

Thank you, Froggy, but I've been PM'ing with Ethan about this.  I use firefox also, but the page that opens up (not a separate tab, by the way) is blank.  We think it's because I have too many PM's for the function to work -- I need to clear a lot out before being able to save.  By the way, it works perfectly if I do it individually, but that's way too difficult at this point.  In the future I can do it like that, but not for this first mass saving.

Ethan, I'm posting this instead of PM'ing you -- I'd think this is info that might apply to others also.

I tried "Save all PMs" in my Outbox.  Duh, why didn't I think of that?  I had only tried it with my Inbox.  My Inbox has 100 pages, and the application won't work with that many PMs.  But my Outbox had only 25 pages.  (I had cleared it out considerably on a few occasions in the past when you've encouraged us to do so.)  Anyway, the Save all PMs worked perfectly this time, with my Outbox.  And didn't even take very long.

It saves curiously, though.  I had made a folder, "ennisjack PMs," and made two folders inside that, "Inbox" and "Outbox."  In my Outbox folder, the save function made one folder and one PHP file.  Just to check it before I deleted the PM's here, I opened them.  The folder is all the images from all the PMs.  Then I opened the file in Word Pad.  The headers are a bunch of gobbledygook, but the text of the messages is all there.  What do you say we should open the PHP file in?  What is a PHP file anyway?

Thank you for your patience.  :^^)

Kathy, glad to know at least something works.

When you save the PMs, can you save it as html file or web document? In a web document, all PMs will display including the images.

I guess a folder with all images from the PMs is nice but php file is not user friendly at all.

Darn -- I should have checked that out before I saved.  I guess I saved as html, and no, it's not a user-friendly thing, but that's okay.  (Sometimes I think the crux of the whole matter is to re-think "saving."  I've always been a saver -- save everything, physical and data -- but I've had to give that up the past years, with so much data flying over the web-waves. 

Well, I'll save PMs as web doc when I save Inbox.  I've deleted almost a third of the pages, though it's still too large.  Keep hacking away  ^^)

Yes please keep saving and hacking!

I did some testing using Firefox and IE and save the page as webpage (HTML only).

Firefox will save a webpage and one folder with all the pix. IE will only save a htm document.

70-page probably is the maximum that the saving all feature will work properly.

Okay, cool.  Of course there will never be so many pages in the future, so this is only a one-time hacking-and-saving thing.  70 pages maximum?  Good -- I cut it down from 100 to 75 the other night, but then went to something else.

What are the two choices to save again?  HTML and what?  I'd rather not have the text and pics separately, but still, it isn't that bad this way.

So...thanks.

Hope your trimming down is on track. In the Firefox,

1. select the location where you want the file save
2. name the file
3. in the field of "save as type," choose "web page, HTML only"

Even though all images will be saved in a folder (same name as the file), the web page will still display all images.

I feel the same, T.  I've been procrastinating deleting half my inbox.  I think now I'll wait until after your "live" session next week and find out what you've come up with, before I do.

I hate to keep saying it, but I'm so jealous!!!

smartestsonia,

sorry to hear that you were having problems accessing the site. The site has been on pretty much so I am not really sure what the problem was.

Is it now working fine or do you still have problems?

Thanks for your concern Ethan ^f^
It is working fine now but 2 weeks back it was showing online that the site is not found...It must have been a technical problem from the internet service provider in Dubai..The only thing that surprised me though was that it happened only with this site and every other site was accessible..
Thank God its working fine now..I will let u know if I face any other problems..
Thanks and take care :)
