Creating a Printer-Friendly Version of Your Page or Post

The WashU Web Theme is relatively printer-friendly; however, if your site is hosted on WashU Sites, you can add a button to a page or post that will allow visitors to print out a printer-friendly version of your content. Note that the printer-friendly version will not include any content in the slider.

Steps to Create a Printer-Friendly Version

  1. Navigate to the page or post you’d like to make printer friendly, and click Edit.
  2. In the content editor, enter the short code [printfriendly] at the end of your content.
  3. Click Update.

  4. Test the printer-friendly version by clicking the gray Print button when you’re viewing that page.

Note: If this shortcode doesn’t work, the Print Friendly plugin may have been deactivated. Check its status under Plugins in the dashboard.
