The other day I posted on printing blog posts, and have some more to say.
Today I came across a blog that had heaps of posts I was interested in, so I wanted to get acquainted with this blog, so I went through the categories and went through the date archives…there was so much good stuff
(too much to read online, print format is easier on the eyes and good for the train ride home).
But then my next problem was that I had to page to see the next 10 posts and print again, now you can’t do this with RSS2PDF as it only shows the last 10 posts, if there was RSS archiving then it would be OK.
So I clicked to the next page, got the URL and entered it in HTML2PDF and did a print, then clicked to the next page of posts, entered that address into HTML2PDF and did a print, and so on.
I was thinking would this be much easier if I could just set a page range…eg. print me all posts from page1-5
…and even apply this to a tag or a category, enter a category URL and print from page1-5
…or even a full post search result.
Then the other thing is that you have to read from the last page to the front page, and you have to read from the bottom of the page up…a totally inconvenient experience.
What blogs need are a reverse button, from the homepage you could read a blog from the first post downwards, and click to the next page, you could choose a month or date URL and read it in (non-reverse) chronological order, or choose a category URL and do the same
…this is a problem as well in RSS Readers, if you haven’t read a feed in a while you may need to read an earlier post to make sense of the current post.
