Print icon to exclude ads

Greetings from a sunny South Africa,

First off, let me say that this site, along with the VSRI and V-Strom Owners Site UK, have been extremely informative so far.

I have two forum related questions that I am seeking assistance on.

While I understand that the ads help pay the bills, when I want to print any posting that I find interesting, I don't want to include any ads.

From within my profile, how do I go about switching off displaying these ads.

And, when I print a thread via the print icon, the print displays the photo(s) included as shortcuts. This is frustrating as I want to print the complete thread and not just text.

I notice that this is also the case on the VSRI forum, yet the V-Strom Owners Site UK the resultant print includes the photos with the text. The only time that it doesn't is when the link no longer works (photo with drawn) or the flicker account closed.

Unfortunately I have been finding many of the links and picture are becoming no longer valid, hence the desire to print an article now while the relevant information is available.

Can you please help?

Use your browser's print function instead of the Show Printable Version thread tool. That will print pictures instead of links. As far as ads go, there is ad blocking software out there. Since this site is provided to you because of ad revenue, it is not about to offer a function for you to turn off its ability to show ads.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Good day, I still need some help please. I have tried to print articles containing pix, using the advice provided. I still have an issue with ads PLUS now I also have to contend with the "menu" from the right-hand side of the screen being included in my prints (Premium Vendor Showcase / Recent Discussions / Buyers Guide). This sucks! I want to print the article so that I can go to my workshop and reference it against the job that I'm attempting on any of my DL650s. Now instead of printing an article of, say 3 pages, back to back, I end up with a print of 5 pages back to back. The pix don't automatically get resized and are sometimes there are large blank spaces with the pix carried over to the next page, due to the "menu" being included. Someone please attempt to print any article and see if you also get the same result. Alternatively explain what am I doing wrong so I put this issue to rest. Thanx

Use google chrome with adblock plus AND pay for a premium membership to remove the ads.

To print, first copy the entire text you want to print, hit ctrl P and then print just the selection

Thanx for your reply tenny80. Switchable ads aside, it would appear that the printing issue is a lot of hard work. Not worth all the trouble. Pity though, I think that this website has so much valuable knowledge to offer any V-strom owner. God Bless

"Computers will make us a paperless society" said my circa 1960-ish 5th grade teacher, as she attempted to teach us binary. I was pretty defiant in those days. Wish that mean streak had encouraged me to invest in ink futures.

I just save thread links in folders with appropriate titles; oil, buffeting, clutch "chudder", etc.

There are ways to save individual post links from massive threads. Not all posts are gems...except here on stromtrooper.com

An original quote by Nostromdumbass;

Facebook: making humanity yearn for the times when people used to talk behind others backs.

Finally, as far as I'm concerned, this thread can be put to rest. By switching to "Mobile view" most of the items that troubled me are gone. I only have to save a larger view of any pix that for part of the article. Thanx to all who took the trouble to reply to my query. God Bless

If you click on thread tools at the top of the first post, then printable version it may help. I also seem to have hidden my side bar but I'm on my iPad.
