Hi Shawna,

... the best (and professional) way are dynamic PDF's. Its a bit
of work, but you can be sure that everyone can print them. You
could create a PHP script that converts your dynamic web page
into a static, printerfriendly PDF or you could try a pdf-printer,
print the page to file and send it back to the browser.

Yes: this means a bit of work, and I think there are several other
ways out there, so keep your eyes open. This was just my suggestion.

> Subject: [PHP-DB] static or dynamic "printer-friendly" webpages?
> Question for all you php experts out there:
> My organization's website is based on mysql/php backend - 95% of the
> webpages are generated dynamically using templates and
> database records.
> We have been asked to create "printer-friendly" versions of
> these pages.
> Now for your opinion/advice: should we (1)create another
> template called
> "print.php" for example and generate there print friendly
> pages dynamically
> or should we (2)create static html copies of each database
> record so that
> they are "print friendly"?
> By "print friendly" I mean I want a page that doesn't have
> the text cut off
> the right hand side of the page (nevermind, for now, that the
> original page
> shouldn't do this
> in the first place :) )
> Thank you so much for your help!
