Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Occasionally, I'd like to save a Slashdot page to read completely, offline, later.

Is it possible to expand all comments in one action, instead of manually clicking each one?

At the top of the comments, on the bar with the 'Post' and 'Load all comments' buttons there is a slider with two draggable handles:

  • The right one sets how many are hidden (score threshold)
  • The left one sets how many are full/expanded.

Sliding the left one up to the same position as the right one will make all posts you have set to display, be expanded.
