Thanks Catrina! I am aware of this plugin :) Unfortunately I cannot use this since it is too complicated to use and is in the wrong language. This is bacause although young people can probably use this plugin well, the elderly cannot especially when it is not in their mother tongue. Our page is visited also by the elderly and they would need an easy to use printerfriendly-feature. It should be as easy as possible, so the steps to do should be limited to pressing the printerfriendly button and it already prints etc. I am now using one super easy to use plugin but it has to be added using code and so I have to add it again everytime PageLines is updated. If there was an already built-in printerfriendly-feature in PageLines, that would be fantastic! Thanks, -salt

Hi Danny!

I have tried this yes, but I got comments about it being too difficult to use. What was wrong with that (one problem at least) was that people could accidentally delete sections of the text without noticing it. At the moment I am using a plugin that turns the page to a printerfriendly one. And can be printed after that. Like so http://www.luominen....et-meret/print/. It is not pretty, but atleast people get the whole article and won't accidentally delete important information.

Thanks for your help anyways Danny and Catrina, it is much appreciated!
