I don't know how much simpler it can be...
By , for WP 4.0

I have used tons of methods (plugins/recommendations/writing my own code/etc.) to attempt to print 'sections' of pages; with the amount of conflicting languages, it can be tricky at times (especially in WP or any CMS).

This plugin is VERY easy to use, and I can use it anywhere any number of times vs. a number of other plugins where you'd either have to tweak the source-code (bad), or only have one print option.

There is minor tweaking involved for what I have used this for that is easy for me to maintain on a particular project, but going forward on other projects, it will be left alone and perfect for all other applications.

I am seriously stumped at the '1-star' review below: this plugin ROCKS!

NOTE: I've cross-browser tested this plugin (FireFox, Chrome, Safari, IE, SeaMonkey, Maxthon & Opera) - no problems. Also mobile tested on native and add-on browsers (Android/Apple). No problems here.

Works but has shortcomings

Unlike what it says, if you do not define a target you get an "undefined" error.

I want something that uses the media@print section of my stylesheet. This gives you a raw, unformatted dump of your html output.

Unfortunately the other print plugins I've found won't print my events manager listings so I may try to hack this one .

Life-saving plugin

I scoured the plugin world looking for a plugin that would print my posts exactly how I needed them to be printed and this plugin delivered. I tried half a dozen other plugins. All of them fell short in various ways. This one was (almost) perfect.

With other plugins, I couldn't get them to print colored text, nor display tables in a print-friendly fashion. Other plugins also forced me to print header/footer info, when all I wanted to print was the post content. This plugin did the trick.

I would say though that you should have a rudimentary knowledge of code in using this plugin. Otherwise you may not like it. Specifically, how to set a div area etc.
