WoltLab Cloud Articles to PDF Files 1.1.4

Download articles as PDF files or print them directly from the browser.

Requirements

  • You must have WoltLab Suite™ Core 5.2, 5.3 or 5.4 installed.



Configuration

You can configure this plugin in the ACP under Configuration ⇒ CMS ⇒ Articles ⇒ Articles to PDF Files. You can specify whether the article teaser, the article image, the article date, "About the author", a header and a footer should be included in PDF files. An individual footer text can also be defined.

It's also possible to restrict the functionality of this plugin. When you create or edit an article, you can specify for the article whether it can be downloaded or printed. Via the user group permissions (General Permisions ⇒ CMS ⇒ Articles) you can control who can download and print articles.



Notes on this plugin

  • Pressing the download button will cause the PDF file to be generated server-side via PHP. Therefore, the following applies for downloading: Articles that use more complex or special HTML code may not display correctly in PDF files. JavaScript code is not executed. Similarly, CSS declarations, with the exception of inline styles, are not accounted. However, this is perfectly sufficient for normal texts.
  • Pressing the print button calls up the browser's print function.
  • Therefore the appearance of the page views in the browser, the PDF files and the printouts differ.
  • To display images in PDF files, the PHP option allow_open_furl must be enabled.
  • If an error occurs with the message open_basedir restriction in effect, make sure that all media elements on the page are embedded using the absolute URL.

    Initial release

  • Hallo,

    wir haben soeben das PlugIn installiert, aber der pdf-download enthält keine Bilder.


    Meldung: Image not found or type unknown


    In der Beschreibung heißt es, dass die php-option "allow_furl_open" aktiviert sein muss. Sollte das nicht "allow_url_fopen" heißen?

    Wir haben testweise beide optionen auf "on" gesetzt, ohne das Ergebis zu verbessern.


    Bei der Druckfunktion werden die Bilder angezeigt.


    • Ja, es müsste allow_url_fopen heißen. Ich werde den Fehler in der Plugin-Beschreibung in Kürze beheben. Danke für den Hinweis.


      Bist du sicher, dass die Änderung auch greift? Das kannst du im ACP auf der PHPInfo-Seite prüfen: /acp/index.php?php-info/


      Falls es nicht daran liegt, bräuchte ich vielleicht den Link zu einer Seite, auf der sich das Problem reproduzieren lässt. Gerne auch via Konversation.

  • Wird es ein Plugin Blog / Artikel zu PDF geben ?

    Gruß aus Aachen

    • Das möchte ich für die Zukunft nicht ausschließen, aber unmittelbar ist leider nichts dergleichen geplant.

    • Ich denke, da es den Blog schon wesentlich länger gibt als den Abklatsch Artikel würde sich wohl viele Anwender darauf freuen so ein Plugin einzusetzen. Also, lass dich beim Planem nicht aufhalten :)

  • Herzlichen Dank für dieses tolle Plugin
