Post to PDF
Is there a plug-in on wordpress.com to allow readers to download a post as a PDF file similar to the Create PDF plug-in from http://en.pdf24.org/?
Sorry, there is no similar option available to WordPress.com blogs.
You can have a post to pdf option in a different way, though.
You have to do for individual posts, though.
Any Social Bookmarking for wordpress.com is a DIY solution and it offers a “save as pdf” option along with other options.
If you don’t like the method, you can use printfriendly browser tool to create a pdf for a specific blog post
You can then link to the printfriendly url for your blog post to a text-link that says “save as pdf”.
The reader can click that link and download the pdf.
Are you going to need post-to-pdf option often? If so, I can create a code so that you can launch a post-to-pdf button in your blog post in one click.
I have just created a post-to-pdf bookmarklet for wordpress.com blog posts. You can use it to add a post-to-pdf button in a post in ONE click even before you leave your blog editor.
You can find the bookmarklet here:
“Post-to-PDF” bookmarklet for wordpress
You can find the bookmarklet instructions here:
How to allow your readers to download pdf version of your wordpress.com blog post
Alternately, you can use a text link instead of a button link. To do that, simply use the code below:
<a href="http://pdfmyurl.com?url=PASTE-POST-URL">download this page as pdf
Simply replace the phrase PASTE-POST-URL with the actual url of your blog post to make it work for your blog post.
When clicked, both the button link and text link opens a “Save File” dialogue box with which your reader can save the blog post as PDF.
Sorry, the code for text link is incomplete.
Try this code instead:
<a href="http://pdfmyurl.com?url=PASTE-POST-URL">download this page as pdf</a>
