The #1 Print and PDF button for your WordPress site. Printer Friendly pages without coding, css, or print.css. Fast, easy, and professional.
I refuse to use plugins that choose to rely on code stored on the publishers site. This causes havoc if/when the plugin is no longer updated and thus forces a lifecycle on the plugin.
The images and all code could be stored local, like 99% of all the WordPress plugins, but this author chooses not to do this.
This also causes slowdowns and lack of functions when the plugin is used in a corporate environment, behind firewalls and proxy's which only allow specific access to the outside world, or in some case there is NO access.
It is not only in poor taste and design, not to mention the author can pull statistics on your site's users, as the external link happens every time the button is shown.
I just installed this plugin on a WP 3.7.1 multi-site and it works like a charm. The print and pdf functionality is exactly what I wanted for some product pages. Good work on this plugin!
How about telling people that you put advertising on the print pages to people who use this. That is a totally unprofessional print process. Who would use it like that?
I would think at minimum you would state this on the home page of the plugin and say that in order to remove the adds, do this for this cost. But I installed the plugin and ran a test only to find out and I am now pissed! I looked around your plugin page figuring I missed something and found nothing, not any indication of such and not even a clear indication as to where to upgrade. I read other comments here from others about your recurring cost and decided to just uninstall and go for another option.
I have no problem with a one time fee...but a monthly recurring fee is greedy and against the mantra of the wordpress community.
I setup a monthly payment with this plugin - yes 5 dollars to print (are we in the stone age) - the payment agreement was that they would remove the ads on my site after payment. Well, I have paid and the ads are still there, so at this moment this plugin pay system is a scam. They are taking my money monthly and not providing the service they said they would. Beware Buyer, beware.
now, I will use print friendly for printing, either
Nice looks and intuitive settings and usage.
Beware of the Ads that appear when printing! ,
especially if the ad is linked straight to a competitor of your company (which happen to me)
The plugin works well and is easy to configure.
What else to say, wonderful.
Beware - this is a cool plugin that adds very nice print, email, and PDF functionality to posts or pages, BUT when site users click on any of the functions (to print, email, or PDF a page/post) then ads appear......
Also, if a site user clicks on the ads, whether intentionally or accidentally (the ads are LARGE), then it takes them AWAY from your site.
The only way to have this plugin ad-free is to pay extortion.....err...I mean a monthly (or annual) subscription fee to get the Pro version.....
