Download CMS pages as PDF files or print them directly from the browser.
- You must have at least WoltLab Suite™ Core 5.2.0 installed.
You can configure this plugin in the ACP under Configuration ⇒ CMS ⇒ CMS Pages to PDF Files. You can specify whether a header and a footer should be included in PDF files. An individual footer text can also be defined.
It's also possible to restrict the functionality of this plugin. When you create or edit a page, you can specify for the page whether it can be downloaded or printed. Via the user group permissions (General Permisions ⇒ CMS ⇒ Pages) you can control who can download and print pages.
Notes on this plugin
- Only text, HTML and template pages can be downloaded and printed. This means that it isn't possible to download or print system pages.
- The presentation of the page views in the browser, the PDF files and the prints differs. The following applies to PDF files: Pages that use more complex or special HTML code may not be displayed correctly in PDF files. Similarly, CSS declarations, with the exception of inline styles, aren't adopted. However, this is perfectly sufficient for normal texts.
- To display images in PDF files, the PHP option allow_furl_open must be enabled.
