    HOW TO EXPORT THREADS & CONVERSATIONS

    BDRP features an add-on which allows members to export threads in a plain text format that is ideal for saving roleplays. It is recommended that you periodically save your roleplays using this feature. Outlined below is a step-by-step guide to using this feature, including information on copying conversations to threads in order to export them.


    EXPORTING THREADS

    1. Select "Export Thread" from the Thread Tools drop-down menu.

    2. Copy the content to paste and save to the program of your choice, such as Notepad or Google Docs.

    Exported threads may automatically have the "Female x Male" prefix attached even if you do not select this option. This is a bug. Simply edit the thread title to remove it or ask a staff member for assistance if necessary.


    EXPORTING CONVERSATIONS

    1. From the conversation's page, select "Copy to Thread".

    2. Review the options and select "Copy Conversation to Thread".

    • Select "New Thread" to create a new thread from the conversation or select "Existing Thread" to merge it with a thread already on the forums.
    • Select a destination forum, typically either Roleplay Execution or Roleplay Area Archive.
    • Edit the thread title if necessary.
    • Leave "Copy Timestamps" ticked to preserve the original message dates or untick this box to mark the exported messages with the current date and time.
    • Choose the "Future Message Handling" option that best fits your needs. Be careful! If you elect to delete the conversation, it cannot be recovered later.
    3. Follow the steps outlined above for "Exporting Threads".

    Unfortunately, there isn’t one that I’m aware of. :/
