I recently came across a very neat WordPress print plugin, Print Friendly and PDF Button. It is easy to use and install and lets your visitor choose between printing the document or creating a PDF file. The site visitor can also choose to delete blocks of text or hide images, ensuring they are getting the information they want. The site user interface is top notch and very professional looking.
I found the installation very easy as it is a plugin in the WordPress directory so you can search and install right from your dashboard. The configuration of the settings was straight forward and easy to. I really liked the flexibility of configuration:
- You can choose from several button or text link types or you can add your own graphic.
- You can also choose to have the button show up on various locations on the page and you can determine which page types show the button (Pages, posts, archives etc) or you can manually insert the code in your template files .
The only drawback was that the plugin displays advertisements during the printing process but you can subscribe to an Ad-free Pro version. My client found the ad version sufficient as the ads didn’t interfere with her content in any way.
I was very pleased with this plugin and recommend it for anyone wanting to allow site visitors to print their blog posts.
Note: I am in no way associated with this plugin or it’s creators and I did not recieve any type of payment for my review.
