Allow users to view plain text and html versions of articles (6 posts)

    I need an easy way for users to get a plain text version as well as the original html of the post (note: not the entire webpage containing the post, just the post itself).

    Ideally, I'd like the plain text version to be a downloadable file, and the html to be output to a new webpage that has the html in tags, though a download will be fine, too.

    Any suggestions?

    I had a thought that maybe this could work by making simple modifications to one of the printable page plugins.

    Why this is necessary: I let other people republish my articles on their sites. Many of these republishing sites add hundreds of articles a week and that makes it practically impossible to bother with cut and paste etc.

    Which of the plugins are you talking about? I've given up trying to get his email plugin to work so I'm hoping it's not that.

    I believe vrada was referencing Gamerz's WP-Print.

    That was a good idea. I didn't use Gamerz's but another print script for wordpress and am tweaking it a bit to create plain text and html versions...anyone know how to tweak this to get it to output in a more specific format, such as plain text with X characters per line? Anyone know how you could output it as rtf? PDF?
