I don’t know if I would have to use a dedicated plugin for that or if I can achieve this already. But on certain dedicated pages or posts I like to have a link or button for a “print view” where I can hide widget areas like the sidebar and add a print friendly alternate header and footer. As I can not image that this will be achievable with a third party plugin I thought this might be something that one could do with the theme settings like a page with custom per post/per site settings just for the print purpose or a setting like we had in the past where you were able to do a specific layout setup for mobile devices. At the end I would love to have an option that would create nice PDF files from those dedicated pages/posts. That PDF would be then be banner and advertisement free, having these printer friendly header and footer and have nice page breaks. Usually when printing a webpage you have a page break often in the middle of a sentence. But as the first step would be just creating/displaying the printer friendly style that would be enough as you can create such a PDF when printing the page.
Any ideas for that approach or maybe already a finished solution?
Cheers and thanks!

you can definitely create your own print rules with CSS.
As to packaging it as a feature with checkboxes option, that would need to be a request frequent enough for Weaver to implement it ?
Let me know if you need help figuring the CSS rules to customize print on your siteNovember 28, 2016 at 19:04 UTC - Views: 14 #31679WeaverKeymaster
I would checkout one of the WP membership plugins for all questions related to alternate page display for logged in vs. not. They are really designed for that purpose.December 1, 2016 at 18:06 UTC - Views: 8 #31680Joerg_KnoerchenModerator
@weaver sure, anyway I thought it might be something that could be a nice future feature 🙂
Thank you @scrambler I think it is not worth the effort, I will find a plugin to accommodate that for now…December 1, 2016 at 19:31 UTC - Views: 11 #31681WeaverKeymaster
I kind of think that a membership plugin is the appropriate answer. That would amount to a lot of code for an issue that has been solved quite well by several membership plugins.
