    After I downloaded wp-print plugin, I can't seem to get my print icon to show on my blog. Nor can I control the post I want printed. Any suggestions?

    HI Lester - I have this plugin and it works perfectly - I love it!

    Is it possible to have it open the "printable" version in a new window? If you can tell me how to do that (I would guess somewhere to add a "target="_blank" maybe?) then I can modify the wp-print.php file.

    THis plugin totally rocks!

    Fab Plugin. Thank you.

    One request. Could you make it so we can print drafts? I like to print them out when I travel so I can edit them while on the plane.

    But right even if there is print draft feature is in, you need to manually type in the URL and append the /print/ at the back of the URL.

    Gamerz,
    When you re-generate your permalinks does it affect the permalink structure that you have in place.

    This plugin no longer works after upgrading to WP 2.5. I'd love it if the author could update. Thanks!

    Hi Lester,

    I just installed WP-Print in my WP 2.5.1, and it works great, as always! Thanks. Is it possible to open the printable version in a new window? You answered this question some time ago, with a procedure that does not work in WP 2.5.1. Any other suggestions? Thanks again,

    Supersyd

    Under WP-Admin -> Settings -> Print -> "Print Text Link Style".

    Choose Custom

    Replace: <a href="%PRINT_URL%" rel="nofollow" title="%PRINT_TEXT%">%PRINT_TEXT%</a>
    With: <a href="%PRINT_URL%" rel="nofollow" title="%PRINT_TEXT%" target="_blank">%PRINT_TEXT%</a>

    Hi Lester

    I have wp-print working well and have it for use in my posts/comments area - works great except:

    1. For wp-polls - when in the Polls Archive the coloured bars for each of the results do not print. Just the text on the page for all the results not the bars.

    2. The print icon has empty space around it (above and below it) so that the text 'print this post' does not sit exactly beside the icon or on the same line as the icon. The text 'print this post' sits lower not on the same line. So the print icon appears to be higher up - above. Note I have the same problem with the email icon.

    I appreciate my assistance. Thanks so much.

    1. No idea whether this will work, go to print-post.php, find </head> add above it <?php wp_head(); ?>
    2. I don't provide support on styling/design issue as there is just too much work. You can style it whenever you like. WP-Admin -> Settings -> Print. Under Print Link, "Print Text Link Style" choose Custom.

    With regard to item 2. I am not trying to re style/design it. I just want the button and the text to be together on the same line next to each other. This would be a natural thing to see - the button then the text at its right side. At the moment it looks very silly with the button up in the air.

    By default the icon is beside the text, Example: http://lesterchan.net/wordpress/ using the default theme. Perhaps some of the css style defined within your theme is styling the image/text style globally

    Yes, you could be right about that as I know that everything I have setup from your various plugins except the w-email problem (see other query in wp-email) is working the way it should be. Your plugins are very nice. I am using a fluid theme not a fixed theme and have noticed that this type of theme seems to sometimes generate problems that the fixed themes don't. I know this because I do test the new plugins on various fixed and fluid to see if they generate the same problem. Maybe plugins are mostly made for fixed themes. I not sure. Anyway if anyone can shed some light on the situation I would be very pleased. Thanks.

    I'm having an issue w/ WP-Print. I'm on WP 2.3.3, and initially installed WP-Print for WP2.5. I deactivated it, deleted the folder from my plug-ins, and tried to install WP-Print 2.2.

    However it will not showup in my Plug-ins Management page. Any ideas?

    I'm able to add & activate other plug-ins.

    @Venesa it is still possible to style by assigning a CSS class to the link. Just that you need to trial an error to get what you want. No pain no gain =)

    @vuhoops Read the readme.html under Installation tab and take not of the path.

    thanks for the help GamerZ. I must be dense, b/c I don't see anything under the readme that I'm not doing. I have everything in a wp-Print folder in the wp-content/plugins.

    Oh well.

    yea it has been fixed in wp-print 2.30 but you must be running WP2.5 to use it.

    @whooami: Thank you =D
