Tata, you are right. It works in CMSimple_XH. There is only a little bug I stumbled over. If you call your site and land on your first page, it can't print PDF, since it tries to do:

http://www.my_WebSite.de/?&pdf

Then you see an empty PDF-page. However, if you say:

http://www.my_WebSite.de/?Welcome&pdf

you see a PDF page filled with content. So the code needs some changes.

Code: Select all

Notice: Undefined variable: pdf in http://www.mydomain.sk/cmsimple/functions.php on line 54
I added:

Code: Select all

initvar('pdf');
So, this problem should be solved. Please, test it once more, Tata.

In addition I added:

Code: Select all

if($su=='')return '<a href="'.$sn.'?'.ereg_replace(' ','_',$h[0]).$t.'">'.$tx['menu']['pdf'].'</a>';
Also entry pages generate PDF prints now. And it works in CMSimple 3.2 and CMSimple_XH (in usefuncs.php).

The code in the wiki has been updated.

Works super!

It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

This is a very old topic but i guess it still would be usefull if this function works....
Any chance this can be working in XH 1.7.1 ????

Well, modern Browsers often already support PDF conversion – maybe you have to install a plugin, e.g. https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/webtopdf/.

Here is a short information about the plugin "simplePDF".
I got it from Holger Irmler - http://cmsimple.holgerirmler.de.
With the plugin I found no indication of the license and must be asked at Holger.
The plugin "simplePDF" works with CMSimpl_XH 1.6.x, 1.7 and PHP 5.6 error-free.

Best regards
Hartmut

:?: There's no license mentioned so far at all.

@Hartmut: das ist schon so lange her und ich hab' nicht mehr auf dem Schirm, was man bei dem Plugin beachten musste :oops: .
Hast Du vielleicht noch die Beschreibung von mir? Dann übersetze ich es und schicke Emile das Plugin.
Nur wenn das Plugin auch wirklich genutzt wird macht es Sinn, es überhaupt komplett fertig zu machen und zu pflegen.

Hallo Holger,

aus meiner Sicht halte ich das Plugin für den Anwender hilfreich, da nicht bei allen Browsern ein AddOn PDF zur Verfügung steht und es auch unter XH 1.7 funktioniert.

Deine deutsche Plugin Dokumentation und unseren damaligen Mailwechsels (enthält potentielle Inhalte für die Doku und Funktionsergänzungen) habe ich Dir per PN gesendet.

Viele Grüße
Hartmut

Hi Folks,
Amazing how helpful you are !! Thanks already!
I can not understand all german words but as far as i understood this will work fine.

I would love to receive a copy of the plugin and if it works good i will do translation to dutch so i can do something in return!
I appreciate your help very much!
