Publish PBworks Pages As Printable PDFs

28 Dec

One of the most popular feature requests we’ve received over the years is the ability to convert a PBworks wiki page into a PDF.

One of the most common complaints we’ve received over the years is that the printable version of a PBworks wiki page doesn’t look that much like the on-screen version.

Today, we killed two birds with one stone by releasing the ability to convert any PBworks wiki page into a printable PDF.  This replaces the old “Printable version” with a more attractive PDF, which you can either print or download and share.

The “PDF version” is available at the bottom of every page, and to every PBworks user, paid or free.

Thanks for your suggestions, and helping us make PBworks an even better service!

    But the linked images in the page are not shown in the PDF file!

    Initially, there was a bug where images with a space in their name were not being included. We’ve since fixed that. Is this that bug, or something different?

      No. In fact, ALL images, linked or uploaded, with spaces or without spaces, are simply not included in the PDF file.

    Nice feature, however when you include other pages into a pbworks page using the include page plugin, they don’t print, just the icon for the plugin.

      Good catch. I’ll log it in our bug tracker/feature database.

        Thanks for your quick response. In the meantime, is there any way to still access the old print version of pages with navigation and other visual elements removed? I am working with several long reports constructed using the include page plugin that I need to be able to print.
