    How do I start the print process?

    Sorry to ask such a basic question, since there is no setup with the plugin how do I select a listing and print it?

    we are using the AgentPress theme with Genesis versis 1.9.1

    I have loaded and activated Genesis Printstyle Plus

    our url is http://realestatedailynews.net

    we would like to be able to print individual listing sheets

    my email is tmbohan@gmail.com

    @oldirishlad:
    Hi there!

    Sorry for delay, notification was received today from WordPress.org!

    However, back to your topic:
    The plugin has no settings page because it needs none! The main purpose is to enqueue the print stylesheet(s) and take care of stylesheet dependencies.

    So all additions/customizations are done via CSS anyway. See the FAQ here for more info on how to do that: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/genesis-printstyle-plus/faq/

    I haven't used it or tested yet with the "AgentPress Listings" plugin which I assume you're currently using?
    I'd suggest to go the way with style additions (see FAQ!) and then add rules for the styles of the AgentPress Listings post type.

    Hope this helps for the moment.

    Thanks, Dave.

    I looked at your FAQ section and for a novice user it does not explain much at all.

    (1) Add a print stylesheet file print-additions.css to your active child theme's root folder and you're done. It will be automatically enqueued after the packaged plugin styles so you are able to override them.

    How about explaining this in detail, video or maybe pictures on how to get your own setup going and installed.

    Thanks

    @Manup456:
    Hi there!
    Thanks for your feedback.
    PLEASE always open up a new thread here, don't add to existing threads! Every question/ issue should have its own thread, otherwise it becomes confusing for new users!

    Any customizations will require knowledge of CSS especially for print!

    Just create a new css file, the file name has to be print-additions.css
    To make this, use a text or code editor for that (TextPad, Note++ on Windows for example...).

    To this file add the CSS selectors/rules that you want to overwrite regarding the packaged print style sheet of the plugin. For existing rules from the plugin you might copy them, modify and add !important to that (most of the time...).

    You can also add new stuff in your custom CSS file.

    You have to be familiar with CSS of course. There are many online tutorials for that out there. Google will help... :)

    When the file is ready, upload it via FTP to this folder in your WordPress install:

    /wp-content/themes/--your-child-theme-folder-here--/print-additions.css

    That's all!

    Note, if you want to make completely your own print style sheet with my plugin, the above process would be exactly the same, but you then name the file: gpsp-print.css

    Hope that helps :)
    -Thanks, Dave.
