I’d had an idea spark while working on my cooking site. I decided that it would be really cool to set an alternate style sheet for my brother’s site for printing — only it would print only the post content and prefix a scan of his letterhead up top.
“Genius!” I thought to myself. “After getting the Now We’re Cookin’ print template nailed down, this will be easy peasy.”
After wrestling with it for about an hour, it hits me — I had been messing with the background-image attributes in the header class, and most browsers are configured NOT to print background images. Thus, any background attributes are naturally going to be ignored by the printer.
D’oh! :mad: *proceeds to slap self*
Yep, I am such a goober.
Anyways, I adjust the header template by putting the letterhead image in its own class. In the main style sheets I set display to none, and fixed the printing style sheet to the desired specifications … and Voila! Printed out a nice letterhead for every page on the site.
Hey, I’m allowed to have my blond moments too … :razz:
