Well aware that I might risk being off-topic, but I found this forum to be the least off-topic, since it could be placed in the "feedback" category

Anyhow - using B2Evoluiton both for my own personal blog open for everyone to read, but also as a sort of diary for my kids so that family far away can log on and read and see pictures I soon realized that it would become their only photo album. SO I needed a way to export all the posts to PDF, fully customizable to my own needs. Since I'm mostly into Java, I ended up creating what I needed using...Java...

To have a backup of the code in case my really old laptop would die I uploaded the code to Google Code http://code.google.com/p/b2evolution-to-pdf/ Announcing it here as well in case someone out there is having the same need as me - maybe this might help them save some time. Must admit that I struggled quite some time in order to figure out how to create the 2 column PDF just the way I wanted it...the rest, fetching stuff from the database and such is just a walk in the park.

So for anyone to enjoy, again the link http://code.google.com/p/b2evolution-to-pdf/

thank you.i needed sth like that, i really wonder how the output is.

Will give it a whirl sometime.The "downloads" section is empty, but i guess i ll make a svn checkout and check the code for instructions.

U may use ContuttoPDF plugin, you will able to offer your vistors a full featured pdf. The PDF creation and rendering is done vy DOMPDF which is based on R&OS PHP PDF class.
There is one more utility, HTTrack allow you to download a WWW site from the internet to a local dirextory.
