Make PDF Newspaper

'Make PDF Newspaper' uses Five Filters PDF Newspaper to create printer friendly 'tabloid' edition of your WordPress blog.

I get an fopen error and / or permission denied

If you get permission errors make sure that the script has writing rights in your blog directory. Try to creating a file with your chosen pdf filename (e.g. mytabbloid.pdf) manually, upload it with a ftp program and set the rights to 777 with CHMOD. A good tutorial for changing file permissions can be found on the WordPress Codex.

I get a Error 500 - Internal server error

This usually indicates that your server has timed out because the PDF it is trying to create is too big. Disabling link footnotes and QR Code generation may help.

Warning: curl_setopt() [function.curl-setopt]: CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION cannot be activated when in safe_mode or an open_basedir error

This is indicates that your host server isn't configured to run this plugin. You can contact your host to see if they can help or consider setting the 'Use external service' option within the plugin

How can I automatically generating new copies of the PDF documents (daily, weekly etc)

The Make PDF Newspaper options panel includes a link which can be used to trigger regeneration of PDFs using a 'cron job' via your host or with a 3rd party service.
