Do your website visitors need to print pages or posts?

If your website has a list of directors or members, customer may want to print the page. Printing website pages can be challenging. Websites are designed to be “responsive” or flex with the size of the device like a smart phone, computer or tablet.

Here's a great article about printing pages with WordPress websites

Often users want to print articles they find interesting. By default, WordPress itself and most WordPress themes would print your page as it is, with all the graphics, colors, and text in sidebars. In this article, we will show you how to add a option to your WordPress posts.

Some WordPress themes come with a separate CSS stylesheet for printing. This stylesheet is used when a user prints a page. Other WordPress themes, may not change your site’s appearance when a user prints it.

You can see how your WordPress theme handles print by pressing CTRL+P when looking at a page from your site. Your browser will show print preview of your site.

In that case, you can use a printer friendly option on your WordPress site. It will not only make your content printer friendly, it will also encourage users to print with an on-screen print icon.

Upon activation the plugin will add a new menu item labeled ‘Print’ to your WordPress admin bar. Clicking on it will take you to the plugin’s settings page.
