    I love the plugin custom content type manager.
    I have a list of products shown and you click on one for more details.

    Works great! http://www.rayburns.com/test - is a listing of products

    My question is - when I click on one product - how can I print out the results - detailed page - on a printer or create a pdf version for people to print out.

    Is there a way to print these into a pdf? (I have the pdf software.)

    Using: Plugin Version:
    WordPress Version: 3.5
    Thank you so much for any help...

    Glad you're enjoying the plugin. To answer your question, No: creating PDF is not anything directly supported by (or limited by) the CCTM. PDFs really have nothing to do with the CCTM -- you'd need to build your own script to do that. There are some free PHP libraries for that I think.

    Thanks for the reply fireproofsocks

    Can you point me in the right direction for this? What type of PHP script would I search for? I am fairly new at this.

    Creating accurate PDFs is not trivial, and there are a lot of small little questions that would need to be answered before I could point you in one direction or another. Other devs may disagree, but generally any time a client wants to generate a PDF, then the flow is generally wrong and there's usually a better way to solve the problem. In other words PDFs may create as many problems as they solve. That may not apply to your particular case, but that's my two-cents.
