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?
