    This may work well for somebody who doesn't care if their site has third-party ads on it, but I absolutely can NOT use this for any of my clients' sites! And they're not tiny ads either, but giant! Very disappointing. Everything else worked perfectly. :(

    PrintFriendly has a dedicated team that works continuously for improving the product as well as provide email support to all users. Without any source of income that wouldn't be possible to keep up development and support.

    FYI, PrintFriendly premium publishers use PrintFriendly Ad-Free subscription that removes the ads as well as (optionally) PrintFriendly branding.

  3. @aisajib Are you associated with that plugin? If you are please contact the author and have your account made a plugin contributor. That would make your participation above board and more clear.

    That's a good reply!

    And that part is not so good. In my opinion. I prefer all advertising to be opt in and not "Pay to eliminate them". ;)

    But more importantly this plugin is not violating any rules here.

    @cwendt01 This plugin is "Software as a Service" meaning that the PDF is not generated by the plugin but the URL is passed to their servers and the PDF file is generated there.

    With software as a service it is acceptable to insert branding, advertisements, etc. because that's part of the service that this PDF Friendly provides.
