556 How to Print your Blogger Posts Effectively
May 28, 2008 /

As many of the posts here are tutorials, I thought it would be useful for readers to print off individual blog posts for future reference. Sure, it would be possible for a reader to choose the "print" option from their web browser window, but this would have printed the header, sidebars and other irrelevant sections of the blog, wasting paper and ink and time.

Using a combination of CSS and JavaScript, I've developed a simple yet effective method of printing only the blog post (and comments) from each blog page.

In this post, I'll explain how you can also add effective print functionality to your Blogger posts in just two simple steps.

To get an idea of what this post would appear like when printed, use the "Print Preview" function in your web browser. Whereas the current page appears colorful and includes the header, sidebars and other elements of this template, printed pages from this blog will appear like this instead:

As you can see in this example:

  • The header and sidebar sections do not appear
  • Text is black printed against a plain white background
  • The post spans the width of the printed page
  • The post retains images and formatting
  • Only the necessary areas will be printed!

How to install effective printing format for your Blogger posts

Although it took me a few attempts to ensure my posts would print in this way, I have created this tutorial to make it simple and fast for you to install in your own blogs.

There are only two steps to add this functionality to your own Blogger template:

  1. Add a few lines of CSS code (to make printed pages appear in this way)
  2. Add one line of JavaScript beneath your posts (which creates a link for readers to print the post)

There are a few different options for the style of the print link, as I'll explain below.

Add CSS Style Code to your Blogger Template

To add the print styling code to your Blogger template, simply go to Layout>Edit HTML in your Blogger dashboard, and search for the closing </head> tag.

Immedietly before this line, add the following lines of code (copy and paste this directly to your Blogger template):

<style media='print' type='text/css'>
#header-wrapper, #header, .header, #sidebar-wrapper, .sidebar, #footer-wrapper, #footer, .date-header, .post-meta-data, .comment-link, .comment-footer, #blog-pager, #backlinks-container, #navbar-section, .subscribe_notice, .noprint {display: none;}
#main-wrapper {width: 95%}
</style>

If you like, you can preview your blog before saving. On this preview page, you'll be able to see the print preview displays only your blog posts (not the sidebar or other unwanted areas).

Finally, save your template.

Add a "Print this post" link

To notify your readers that your posts can be printed effectively, you'll probably want to add a "Print" link beneath each of your Blogger posts.

I've created three different styles for the print link, so you can choose the option which works best for your overall design.

To add the print link, go to the "Edit HTML" page again, and this time ensure that you've ticked the "expand widget templates" box.

Now search for this line:

<p><data:post.body/></p>
Immediately after this line, paste one of these three sections of code:

For a simple text link:

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<a href='javascript:window.print()'>Print this post</a>
</b:if>

For a button link

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<form> <input type="button" value="Print This Page" onClick="window.print()" /> </form>
</b:if>

For a snazzy link with printer icon

<b:if cond='data:blog.pageType == &quot;item&quot;'>
<span style='background: url(http://bloggerbuster.com/images/print.gif) left no-repeat; padding-left: 20px;'><a href='javascript:window.print()'>Print this post</a></span>
</b:if>

Once you have added this code, save your template. These links will only be visible on post pages (to enable visitors to print the full post and any comments which appear beneath the post), so visit one of your post pages to see the link in action.

You can see an example of the print link near the bottom of this post. If you click on this link, you will be prompted to print this entire post (and comments) using your default printer.

Why it may be useful to enable printing for your Blogger posts

If you publish tutorials or lengthy content, your readers may benefit greatly from being able to print and read your posts offline.

Using the methods outlined here, readers can print only the content of your posts, and not the unnecessary distractions of the sidebar, footer and header sections (which saves on paper and printer ink too!).

You may also want to print off your blog posts for your own benefit, such as to back up your posts in print format, or to demonstrate your abilities in a print portfolio.

Unlike other plugins I have come across, this method also allows you to print any comments under your post too. Comments can add a great deal of value to blog posts, and may contain reader insights which are not included in the body of the post itself.

I hope this tutorial has been useful for you! Please feel free to print this off for future reference ;) and as always your comments are most welcomed.

  3. Thanks yet again Amanda! I'm going to keep an archive on hard copy.
    Only at the moment the post is printed on two pages, with the first one empty, but for the blogger top line with search blog, flag blog etc.
    You don't have that above your blog anymore, so that may be the reason it doesn't appear on your prints.
    Is there a way to avoid this?
    Otherwise splendid!

  5. Thanks, Amanda. I'm toying with the first option only (no "Print This" link yet) as I have quite a heavy footer already with all the Feedflare stuff! Seems to work fine. Many thanks.

  10. Hi Amanda, it's me again. Thanks, your tips and tricks for printing post effectively have done on my blog. But, I'd like to ask you 2 questions, may you give me more tips and tricks or suggests (1) how to print post, only the text and/or image in the post, and (2) when we click the print button we can see the preview first before print the post. Thanks before.

  11. Thanks for a great tip - very easy to do compared with some solutions I was looking into!

    One question: I don't want to print the comments on my posts - what should I change to stop them being printed?

    Thank you!

  12. Thanks for the great tools for us bloggers. This is something I've wanted for a Looong time and it looks almost perfect but maybe I'm just doing something wrong. I've installed the print button on posts but it cuts off the right side of the screen... even the print button on your blog. It cuts off the right side of the text. I've changed the marhins in the page setup, I've even switched to landscape, changed to 95% value in your code higher and lower. Nothing seems to make it print the whole post left to right. I'm thinking maybe there's a flaw in the javascript? Do you have any thoughts? I've LOVE for this to work perfectly. The site I'm building for your reference is: http:www.stevemounts.com Thanks!

  16. Hi Amanda:

    I've been looking for something like this for a long while. I followed the steps and added it to my blog Jordan's View, but the "print this" is only appearing on some older posts and not on recent ones.

    I know I have quite a few widgets and additions on my blog template, could this be interfering with your add-on?

    I really want to use this. Can you help? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Hello Amanda! Thanks for your good initiative: I have a lot of print requests and I was/am getting desperate: your button doesn't work! I keep on having the same problems: the print example or printed page contains a first page with text that continues after the pages ends, but not on the second page - so, no print. Have you heard this problem before? Could you maybe help? I have a (professional) blog, www.theory-talks.org.

    I would be very much helped with some suggestions...

    Many thanks!

    Best,

    Peer

  18. For some reason, when I went to print, I still saw the header and everything else. Does it make a difference what template you start with?

  19. Amanda

    I was looking for a print code like this, I was using a code that printed the whole page. You've just saved my life :o)

  20. Hi Amanda

    Many thanks for all your hard work, I've found much of it really useful. Re "Print This Post, though, I'm only able to print page 1 of any post; subsequent pages come out blank except for the header info. Am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ken Head, I noticed the same thing. But only in Firefox.

    If I view my blog in IE7, I can print all pages of a post. But in Firefox, only the first page prints.

    I haven't yet figured out why this is, but if I do, I'll post my solution here.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi C. August and many thanks for the tip. I've been struggling with this in Firefox all day and wasting paper as well as time. I tried Safari, too, but had the same result. However, I'll give IE a whirl and see what happens. It'll be interesting if IE proves more useful than Firefox! Like you, I'll post here if I get a result.

    ReplyDelete
  23. OK, I solved it!

    This is a bug in Firefox, where it can't print a DIV or a Table that spans multiple pages. This happens whether or not you use Amanda's print CSS code. It's just more obvious when you try to print just the body of a post.

    IE7 works fine.

    The fix is to edit the following line of CSS code, adding the "overflow" bit:

    #main-wrapper {width: 95%; overflow: visible !important;}

    ReplyDelete
  24. @C. August:

    Thank you so much for this tip! I've just been reading your comments on this post and realized that my own blog won't print properly with this new template!

    Hopefully your trick will help solve all our problems :)

    I will update this post shortly with your helpful information!

    Best wishes,

    Amanda

  25. Hi again C. August

    You're clearly the genius of the group. The advice worked immaculately and I've printed in a couple of hours what I hadn't managed in a couple of days - without wasting a single sheet of paper, too! I don't know where your fix for Firefox came from, but I'll give that a try too.
    Very many thanks!

  26. Gracias. Ha funcionado, aunque me gustaría decirte un par de cosas: Para que no se imprima la navbar hay que añadir .navbar a las cosas que no van a imprimirse y si quien copia este código tiene dos sidebars y/o el crosscol activado, y/o elementos en el main, también ha de añadirlos a la lista, así como #comments, para que no se impriman los comentarios y .post-footer, para que tampoco se imprima.
    De todas formas, gracias por la entrada. Lamento no conocer tu idioma para poder dejarte este mensaje, pero espero que lo comprendas.
    Un abrazo.

  33. thank you very much!

    also.. dont forget to add #Adsense1, #Adsense2, etc to your header code to exclude your ads from printing. I noticed some of the adsense ads were messing with printing layout - so i removed them.

    THANKS AGAIN!

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is a GREAT site! Thanks for the great printing utility. I also noticed that it is flawless with IE7, but doesn't seem to capture the whole post when using Firefox. Any way for me to work thought that (I use Firefox about 95% of the time). Thanks again for all the great tips and information...you just made my wife's blogging experience that much better!

  35. I was really enthused about this post, but I messed around for an hour or so and didn't get the job done. I ran into 2 issues.

    1) I never got the print icon to show up. I could get comments to show up before and after where the print icon should have been, but no icon.

    2) While it was nice to just a single blog entry print, I still got over 20 blank pages.

    I ended up having alot more success embedding the HP print capability. Although I am not excited about the advertisement, a window popup allows me the posts and comments I want to print and the output is beautiful:

    ReplyDelete
  36. I didn't want the comments to print or the Subscribe to link at the bottom so I added,

    #comments and .feed-links to hide them from the print.

    I still haven't been able to get it to work in Firefox. I only get a blank page. So if anyone has a work around, that would be fantastic!!

  39. Thanks for this Amanda, but I have little problem: the printer only prints one page and the second always comes empty. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

    For the moment I had to take this option off my blog because of this issue, but I hope I can fix it in some way.

    Thank you!

  40. Amanda,

    Thanks so much for your brilliant tip. The printer-friendly page works well in Windows, but Firefox 3 on the mac still prints part of the background. Any ideas how to fix that?

  41. Amanda, I really need your help with this. I've cut/pasted both items where you instructed. It was very difficult finding the pdata.post etc.. line but after an hour of hunting, I found it. None of it seems to work. I don't see the print option appear after the posts. Is there a way I could speak with you. I'm not a computer wiz but really want to make this print option thing work on my recipe blog. http://BeABalaboosta.com

  42. Hi, It's me again... I finally got to where I can see the print button and I printed, however, the posts print with the text material that comes before all posts, and, the stuff that comes after. How can I exclude the pre post text from the printed post?

  43. I followed the directions and it works for the most part, but for some reason only the first page will print properly and all other pages just show up as blank. Any idea how to remedy this? Thanks!

  46. I just tried this in IE7, and it prints all but the first page, which is blank.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I tried implementing this, but I don't want to print out whatever comes after the "Print This Post".
    I would appreciate it if you could tell me what to do for this. It would save me a lot of trouble as I have lot of recipes on my blog.
    Thank you very much for this post.

    The particular blog I'm trying this on isn't a Minima template it's "Rounders" if that makes a difference

  52. I added the code and it looks good in preview mode, other than the first page containing only the top bar and nothing else and the second page being all that it will show. What about a third page? The post I wanted to print is longer than one page. Will this not work for posts that are more than one page?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Thanks Amanda, I was able to install the print button quite easily.

    1. I would like to know if there is a way to eliminate the images and print only text?

    2. I would like to eliminate the comments and backlinks. I tried adding the code Ashley suggested above but I couldn't get it to work.

    Do you have any suggestions for me. Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Thanks for the wonderful tip. Is there any way to take out the internet information ie. website address and time printed and the search blog box. It would be perfect if I could get ride of those parts! This is a great way to save all my journaling - thank you! Please let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Ok I figured out how to eliminate the internet info. It is the "Nav Bar" that I don't want to print. How do I do this?

  57. Hey Amanda,
    Just came across your site, and it worked immediately. Thanks for the code. I was wondering if there was a way to include a button (or link) at the bottom of the posts on the main page, so that a reader could print the specific post only from the main page?
    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Like Tom Paine above I also can't find the p data line. Has Blogger perhaps changed their template since this was written?

  59. Amanda,

    Thanks for the code. I've been looking for a neater way to print my blog.

    I put in both fixes. I still have one problem though - if a post is longer than one page, it only prints the first page although it spits out the rest of the pages with nothing on them. Any ideas? (It also did this with the sidebar format before I put your fixes in)

    Thanks, Bob

  60. Hi Amanda,

    Thanks for the code. I've been looking for a neat way to print my blog off. I did find that Firefox does not work well for printing blogs as it will only print one page. I had to revert to Internet Explorer to get all pages of a post printed off - with or without your widgets.

  73. Hi Amanda. I love this fix, however even after adding the overflow bit that C. August came up with, only one page prints in Firefox. (On your blog as well) Any chance of updating this so it will work? Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Removing the "overflow:hidden" under "#main-wrapper" lets me print out more than one page of a Blogger blog in Firefox. (I leave "overflow:hidden" in place for "#sidebar-wrapper" which I have set to disappear from printing anyway). The "overflow:hidden" is "fix for long text breaking sidebar float in IE" according to a comment next to it.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Even better: Instead of removing "overflow:hidden" from under "#main-wrapper",
    leave it there, but

    under your section
    style media='print' type='text/css'

    where you already have
    #main-wrapper {width: 95%}

    make it:
    #main-wrapper {width: 95%; overflow: visible;}

  95. Amanda,

    This solution works well in Firefox, but only works in IE versions 7 and below. For some reason, IE8 does not format properly.

    Any ideas? Can you update the post with a fix for IE8?

    Implemented on my blog: http://www.drugchannels.net

    Thanks,
    Adam

    ReplyDelete
  96. @Tara It works for you in IE but not Firefox --- which needs the overflow setting. Try this, replace:
    #main-wrapper {width: 95%} with the following statement covering your main and content wrappers to be safe:

    #main-wrapper, content-wrapper {width:95%; overflow:visible !important; float:none; border:0px; margin:0px; padding:0px;}

    I have more detailed explanations on my blog, but this should work for you.
