    As a new guy, I'm reading a lot of old threads now and trying to "catch up". Here's an odd question - can I "cache" content or take a snapshot of the forums so I can read them offline? (like when riding in a UA ghetto bird 752 on Sunday?)

    Given that there were 74 views and 0 replies, it appears I asked a dumb ass question!

    There's not a way to do it as part of the forum software, but there are ways to have your browser cache content or other ways to save multiple pages of content for offline reading.

    ETA: Any way to utilize an RSS reader to accomplish something like this? (To the best of my knowledge, not at the moment.)

    Last I checked the RSS feed didn't contain the actual post bodies. A major gripe of mine.

    I don't use it very often and don't think I have ever tried it in off-line mode, but does the iOS app cache messages?

    Or a question that no one knew the answer to. :D

    Cached message forums can be a pain sometimes. Diigo offers some caching (for a fee) but I've never tried it on forums. Hopefully one of the tech people on here can provide some more clarity.
