This tip and trick will allow your end users to be able to Print, PDF, and email your Help Center articles. I actually had this on my todo list with some custom coding however I found the below solution which will work for my needs. This is a very simple and easy way for your end users to print out your articles. The process is very straight forward however as with other tips and tricks this may not be a good enough solution for everyone's needs. Hopefully a few of you will find it useful.
Step 1 Visit the following site.
- Select Website
- Choose your button (you can use any image or button that you like. More on this below)
- Choose your features
- Copy the Code
- From the “Tools Panel” select “Customize Design”
- Select “Edit Theme”
- Select “Articles” and paste the code that you copied from above.
- If you are using one of my themes or the Bootstrap framework, I added a div class to pull the print icon to the right of the page. You can add custom CSS to position the print button anywhere you would like. You could position it by the Title, at the end of the article etc.
That's it. This is a free service with the option to upgrade to remove any ads or the "powered by". For my needs the small ads only displayed when creating a PDF file for me. If you want them removed you can do that here: http://www.printfriendly.com/pro.
