I Created a PDF of The Sidebar

Reddit View

The Reddit admins have been getting worse over the past year, and now there's no better time to back everything up than ever. The sidebar has perhaps the most important information regarding the TheRedPill, and having it backed up is, therefore, very important.

I decided to then put my coding skills into work and create a single PDF file of the entire sidebar.


  • Available fonts: Times New Roman, Sans Serif and Baskerville

  • Download as: A3, A4, A5 or A6

  • Table of Contents

  • Numbered pages

  • View the PDF online without downloading

  • EPUB version available


  • Download EPUB version here.

If you haven't read the sidebar yet, now, as coronavirus spreads around the world, is the time to do it. Enjoy, and don't forget to save it offline incase anything gets removed.

Man. Thank you for this. Well-organized and super easy to follow for new-comers.

Making it an EPUB would literally bring this up a notch, with all that meta data and easier to read on an e-reader.

Don't know how many of y'all know this, but mailing a pdf to your kindle with "convert" in the subject optimises it for kindle reading

[–]Shashankmiller4 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

Dude, I successfully uploaded or sent this book to kindle n it works like charm but without a cover. That's not my biggest problem but I'm unable to view other documents I'm sending to it. Why so?

[–]rhnsachdev0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

Are you writing "convert" in the subject of the email? Are you sending it to the correct email address? Check other obvious errors like this as well

If your issue still isn't resolved, try sending different filetypes. Kindle usually doesn't accept some filetypes.

If nothing still works, maybe it's an issue with the cloud service, so load the file manually via your data cable.

[–]Shashankmiller0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I was impatient, it took a while to load in kindle but all of them opened I love how we can use this feature but somehow if we get to add covers to the books it would be complete

[–]philltered14 points15 points  (0 children) | Copy

Be the change you want to see. OP can you share the source files so people here could play with it and create formats that they want?

[–][deleted]  (3 children) | Copy


[–]Cyphe10 points11 points  (2 children) | Copy

Calibre is good. But usually makes the PDF to EPUB a slight mess, definitely usable, but not a legitimate EPUB. Just as if you'd use any PDF to EPUB converter. You need the source file to make it proper, else it'll be a lot of copying and dirty work.

[–]madmike113 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

The best way in my experience is to convert from PDF to HTML using Adobe Acrobat then convert the HTML to EPUB or mobi/azw3 using Calibre

[–]driticool45 points46 points  (1 child) | Copy

haha, now really, good fucking work

[–]entrep44 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

The only actual meta post on the sidebar

[–]ThePillAdvisor73 points74 points  (7 children) | Copy

If only I could upvote more than once!

[–]thesoloronin6 points7 points  (6 children) | Copy

Well, you cold technically downvote and then upvote, then you would’ve upvoted twice!

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (4 children) | Copy

Please grab your beer. Not the Corona, please.

[–]thesoloronin0 points1 point  (3 children) | Copy

Well I always loved that yellow German beer that’s served with a slice of lemon anyway.

[–]ThePillAdvisor1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Technically a Mexican beer owned by a Belgian holding company...

Odd world!

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's cristal bier. We drink it only with soft ones.

[–]ThePillAdvisor0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

You kinda sir are an evil genius.

Tested out the formula you’ve recommended on your comment and can verify the satisfaction is not the same hahaha

[–]Endorsed ContributorSKRedPill15 points16 points  (1 child) | Copy

Upload it on Library Genesis asap.

[–]Quo21098 points99 points  (1 child) | Copy

Things only a man would do

[–]TotallyMario17 points18 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks for this. Now there’s no excuse at all

[–]redvelvet_oreo7 points8 points  (10 children) | Copy

Make one for the askTRP sidebar as well.

[–]dream-hunter[S] 6 points7 points  (4 children) | Copy

[–]redvelvet_oreo1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Curious, did you use Python to do this?

[–]redvelvet_oreo1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

and THANK YOU! Amazing work.

[–]TruthSeekaaaaa0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

an epub version would be wonderful

[–]entrep44 points5 points  (1 child) | Copy

I didn't realise their sidebar was different. Is there a difference in theme, or just level?

[–]redvelvet_oreo2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Read it.

[–]Modredpillschool[M] 9 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks for this!

[–]trp_nofap_rewire20189 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

You're a real MVP. Thanks dude. Spread the word!

[–][deleted]  (5 children) | Copy


[–]VantablackPill0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yeah I do remember that.

I don't think a lot has changed though, as much of it is timeless.

[–]DeChef2-4 points-3 points  (2 children) | Copy

The handbook and the sidebar are different. They have different content so I’d suggest reading both.

[–][deleted]  (1 child) | Copy


[–]DeChef23 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Oh, first time I went there, I only downloaded the handbook. I had forgotten the sidebar was on there as well, my mistake.

Though I will say, OP’s has better formatting, but that’s just about the only improvement.

[–]cecili0m0nz0n5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

Just yesterday I was thinking about reading the side bar again, this will be very useful in these isolated days. Thanks, OP.

[–]∞ Mod | TRP Vanguardbsutansalt[M] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Great job.

Here's the corresponding thread in AskTRP:

You are the man.

Thanks brother. Much force to you.

Thanks. Now I got something to read during quarantine

[–]Senior Contributordr_warlock2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

High quality, organized, with highlighted internal links in the table of contents.


[–]throwlaca2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Holy shit, incredible quality.


[–]Tuno933 points4 points  (4 children) | Copy

How can I send it to my kindle? Thanks.

[–]Eclipsespirit2 points3 points  (3 children) | Copy

Use calibre to convert it and send the mobi file to your kindle

[–]MojoThundercat1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Can you break this down for the retards please

[–]reddstudent2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Calibre is a software program that converts e-books. File types matter for devices to decode them. Mobi is the file type to convert to for kindle.

[–]Eclipsespirit2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Visit calibre-ebook.com and download the program

Import your pdfs into the program

Convert the books and select mobi as the output format. Also, you should select your specific device for the output so that the formatting remains perfect for your kindle.

Send the books to your kindle account through

  1. Your email @kindle.com
  2. directly through calibre
  3. Download send to kindle program from amazon and use that.

Hope this helps.

[–]arted1234 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Wow! Hey thanks for all the hard work man! Call me old fashioned, but when I'm able after all this I'll be printing off myself a bound copy of this. Very stoked-- many thanks bro!

[–]JzKy241 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I realized that I've been procrastinating on my sidebar studies lately. I'm gonna take it seriously now. Thank you so much!

[–]RednaxB1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

And now someone needs to make it into a book.

[–]suryoghurt1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

What did you write in, python?

[–]colinnb1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

It really needs to be an audiobook

[–]thatdeterminedguy1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Add this one on goodreads as well

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Saving this stuff offline, or on an open cloud storage service (whatever that's called), is crucial.

Maybe another step is getting this stuff printed in physical form. I don't know much about what's technically copyrighted, though.

[–]leagueplay081 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Half of the sidebar wasn’t even working on mobile for me anymore. Reddit can’t stand this community and I think we all know one day they will take it down. THANKS FOR DOING THIS SO WE CAN ALL SAVE IT TO LIVE ON.

[–]MidgetCassanova1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

You're a legend. Thank you for doing this.

[–]DreamingDarker1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you so much for this! As a newcomer to this sub but longtime adherent to many of its lessons (due to best teacher, life) I feel thankful I got in just in time to grab this. I also feel sad that this place might disappear soon. I'm so sick of this shit, have to stare at my screen for five mintues to check and doublecheck to make sure my comment doesn't violate any of the broad and vague rules or upset the wrong groups. I think I'm good. But anyway thank you again for this.

[–]redpillobster1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was looking for exactly this. I opened up all the tabs on my computer and I was in the process of reading them. This is a HUGE HELP! Thank you.

I second the ePub

[–]nicksaiz651 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks man. Very helpful to have all this knowledge backed up

[–]Noitrasama1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

This MUST BE part of everyman's collection. Personally, whenever I come across a worthy article, j use my browser"s plugin, epubpress, to convert the post into epub book. I then have them synced to Google drive using an app (DriveSync). Later I'll use calibre to combine them into one book.

U never know they may close us. I tried to have my friend join TheRedPill & reddit made it impossible. Of late, this sub doesn't even appear among my subs.

[–]lefty9291 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

This is unreal. Thanks brother

[–]Work_ln_Progress1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

Why is the body of 'the missandry bubble' missing? The link provided is broken and only the first page of the document made it into the pdf. This is a very important article, it would be great if this could be fixed.

[–]dream-hunter[S] 2 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

Just fixed and re-uploaded.

[–]Work_ln_Progress1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thanks dude, that's awesome.

[–]AmoxicillinAddict1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Appreciate this so much. This will make re-reading the sidebar much easier in the future. I think I'll print it, put it in a binder, and keep it with my other Red Pill books.

[–]ProfuseGloom3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Man, upvoting this isn't enough. I'm giving you a follow as well! Well fucking done!

[–][deleted]  (4 children) | Copy


[–]DeChef24 points5 points  (2 children) | Copy

Basically font size. A5 makes for easier reading on small screens while A3 is better for large screens like computers since PDFs don’t automatically resize.

Edit: A4 is (probably, haven't tested) best for tablets.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

font size

paper size. A4 is 8.5" x 11"

[–]DeChef20 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Alright, the more you know

[–]aus_shredder1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Amazing. How can we convert to ePub?

[–]1pluvoaz0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I have currently have a pdf/mobi/epub combo version dated Feb 2015. I have the mobi on my Kindle.

[–]lazyexe0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Thank you for you efforts. Note that "The Misandry Bubble" section is incomplete in the PDF. I can only see the first four paragraphs of the original article.

[–]thesoloronin0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

This gets imported directly to my iBooks now! Guess I know what’s accompanying my Dalgona Coffee tonight till dawn tomorrow!

[–]Giagle-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Few hours ago that's what I was about to do (read side bar) Thanks a lot bro!!

[–]InternalMovement-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

Awesome stuff. When I downloaded it, it come up blurry and most of the pages are blank. I'm on a Mac - if that matters.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
