The "Print thread" option does not display the entire thread, only few first pages of content.
In case of longer threads, the result is quite obviously irritating.

I didn't know people even printed threads...

You could use a different browser. Or would that not effect it?

Sorry for spamming, but does someone print the threads? mg2:
Apart from the_fifth_horseman, obviously...

No idea... but that's very forum specific, I don't have any control over it. You might just as well report forum bugs to invision powerboard's official site as they are the ones responsible I sure as hell am not going to re-code it for them

The "print thread" does not print the content of the thread out on a printer. All it does is showing a printable version, which also happens to be more convenient when you are looking through the thread for certain information.

Go to [Options]-->[Print This Topic] to see how it looks.

The problem is, it cuts off posts after a certain date (no "next page" button here). The problem appeared with longer threads before, true, but now the cut-off seems to be a bit earlier, it seems.

I'll bet it's just a hard-coded LIMIT clause. I'll also bet that if you were to post a bug report that you'd be told it was a "security measure" for some odd-ball reason (which would superficially sound sane, but really isn't).

I don't have a copy of the IPB source to double check, though, and I'm not about to pay $300 for it, either.

Maybe it's to prevent printers from jamming? :P

Still, it is pretty bad when you want to quickly search through the thread for a particular something and find the displayed content cut off somwhere halfway through 2005.
