Print template for spicific page.

Post by Tata » Fri Jun 29, 2018 5:05 am

I administer a page of a restaurant. There is adjusted a script publishing a daily menu every day at a specific time. The menu looks like this and is called into the newsbox on the right at the specified time.
I would like to have a "print button" on the page thet would print the very page with some unique styling (e.g. banner, logo, footer, blank background, another font sizes etc.).
The direct link .../?!!!_denne_menu&print doesn't work as expected (400). It must be written as .../?%21%21%21_denne_menu&print. Evidently some setting is wrong. But how to set the styling for "print" only for this only page?

That's expected behavior, since the exclamation mark (!) is a reserved character according to RFC 3986, and as such must be escaped. You can use urichar_org/new to remove all exclamation from the URL.

It's a bit tricky to style the printview of individual pages. Maybe the simplest solution is to link a separate stylesheet on the newspage, for instance:

Code: Select all

#CMSimple $hjs .= '<link rel="stylesheet" href=" . $pth['folder']['template'] . 'mystyle.css">';#
(not sure if TinyMCE likes that, though)

I think that renaming the page would be much simpler and safer.

There is a problem with the editor though. Inserting the code after the page title there remains after saving only

Code: Select all

#CMSimple $hjs .= '';#

Please try:

Code: Select all

#CMSimple $hjs .= chr(60) . 'link rel="stylesheet" href="' . $pth['folder']['template'] . 'mystyle.css"' . chr(62);#

Auch eine Möglichkeit, einzufügen in template.htm.

That wouldn't work for the print view, though, since the print view doesn't use template.htm (but an own minimal built-in template instead).

Oops! I've fixed the code snippet above now.

Half way good.
The stylesheet "mystyle.css" is accepted and works fine. But for the "daily menu" page it works all the time (&normal or &print).

The print view sets class print for the body element, which you can use to apply the styles only to the print view, e.g.

Code: Select all

body.print p {font-size: 2em}
body.print a {text-decoration: none}
