There is no in-built feature; your query would need to be treated as a change request to the way in which the site currently functions.

For a brief day or so just after the site was recently re-designed we could display all the comments in one continuous list on one page (by changing the "?ppp=" posts per page query string parameter on the address of any given thread) but that (presumably, undesired) functionality was removed very soon after I pointed out this could be achieved (beyond the standard 20, 40, or 60 posts per page).

Do you use Mozilla Firefox &/or Google Chrome as a web browser?

Have you considered the "AutoPager" Add-on?

Why doesn't Autopager on Firefox work since they changed the site? (HotUKDeals.com thread)

AutoPager :: Add-ons for Firefox (Mozilla.com)

AutoPager Chrome - Google Chrome extension gallery (Google.com)

Sorry, I'm not understanding what you are trying to relay.

You wish to waste a tree printing a large collection of comments? ;)

I'll try again...

When the redesigned site was first made live there was only 10 comments per thread.
This was then increased to a selection from either 20, 40 or 60. This is still the case today.

As soon as the change to allow "posts per page" settings was made available, I mentioned (in another thread) that you could amend the resultant Uniform Resource Locator (URL) page address to any thread to display all the comments at once.

This was useful for many reasons, but obviously used too many of HotUKDeals.com's server resources & the facility was removed.

No, there is no way to display all the comments in one thread, now.

If you tried the "AutoPager" Add-on I mentioned you also need to load in a "profile" for this site so that the Add-on knows how to interpret the HyperText Markup Language to display multiple pages at once.

Please refer to the HotUKDeals.com thread I posted above for details of the profile (kindly donated by another member).

come on OP why would you do this? That's freaky, Hotukdeals already archives all the threads, forget where they are now though.
