UPDATES: I've ported killercoffee's Illithid Savant Information
thread, and brought over Gerdreg's Guide to the Soulborn
from Gleemax's cache at Wayback Machine.
Libertad, I don't know about easy
, but what I did when I ported all of these
was open all the spoiler tags, select everything in a single post, copy and paste it in a blank Word document, then copy and paste that
in the WYSIWYG version of the boards' text editor. Doing that will go a long way to keeping formatting and all that stuff, but I went further to keep things neat. I previewed the post (so the boards would convert the pasted stuff into its own code), toggled the view again so I could get the pure text version, copied and pasted that into a computer-based text editor (my program of choice is Notepad++) and cleaned the code there. You don't need any tags defining font face and most defining font size, and there's a lot of redundant HTML code you can cut too. I use a PC-based text editor because I can make batch modifications to the text, deleting all "Verdana" tags at once, for example. After all that is said and done, I will go back to the boards' text editor and add back the spoiler tags and fix something that possibly broke. It can take some time, but it is certainly easier and faster than doing everything by hand. Just be careful: tables like the one found in the third thread I linked above are pure HELL to handle, and will take a LOT of time to fix. *shivers*
Anyways, related question: couldn't the board admins create a few users for us in the old boards with posting privileges in locked threads, but without post editing privileges? If we could only hit the "quote" button and copy the resulting text, our work would be so much easier...
