Good but not for pages with shortcodes
By ,

It is a good plugin, but for me it is nearly useless for one specific reason unfortunately; It doesn't seem to process the page for shortcodes prior to PDF'ing or Printing it. I use a lot of shortcodes and ultimate shortcodes through out most of my posts and pages and this plugin doesn't pick them up. Any shortcodes that create panels, boxes, sliders, meta data, buttons, GUI elements, etc, simply do not exist on the PDF or Printed version of the page and in that case the user is better off using the print function of the web browser.

Perhaps the author of the plugin could fully process the page, including shortcodes prior to sending it to PDF or Printer? I don't know the technicalities of this.

If you do not use shortcodes then this plugin is 5-star. If you do use shortcodes then it's hit and miss.

Thank you.

NOT compatible with Page Builders
By ,

I received information from their PAID version of the plugin support team that they won't be making either version (free or paid) compatible with Page Builder plugins. So, basically the majority of WordPress sites.

Free version works fine, pro version wouldn't install
By , for WP 4.4.2

Free version works great but is very limited. You can't control the pages on which the icons appear unless you buy the Pro version. Not many people want the PDF print icons on their home page, nor on their picture galleries.

When I purchased the pro version, the "add-on" plugin would NOT install. I kept getting error messages about my server didn't support zip files. I tried manually installing the plug-in upgrade, and it just failed with no error message. I also deactivated the free version and tried to install the pro version (this was recommended in their documentation help). That didn't work either. Who needs the aggravation, switch to a different plugin.

There are other FREE plugins which provide a superior experience, and install without a hitch.

Good but...

not buying it. I'll lurk moar for something similar.

The included stylesheet is not nice
By , for WP 3.9.1

The default stylesheet, which is the only included, makes all bold text red and the font is very small on the print version. It gives you the oportunity to use your themes style, but I have a dark background making the print to dark. Else it works fine. It places two buttons for pdf and print on the page with your choice.
