In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to add a “Printer-friendly version” button to your Drupal articles. This produces a super-clean version of your article, with any of the site design. The main reason you’d want to do this is a courtesy for your readers.

Without this solution, you’d likely need to create a separate CSS file with styles specifically for the printed page. Fortunately, the “Printer, email and PDF versions” Drupal community module makes this much easier. It will automatically create a printer-friendly version of each article [[ This is a content summary only. Visit http://OSTraining.com for full links, other content, and more! ]]

First let’s talk a bit about strategy, and then I’ll share a couple important results we’ve seen.When to stopHere at Highrise, we split test constantly.

Even if it’s changing a word on a single button.But it’s super easy to get stuck. We run dozens and dozens of experiments and often end up with nothing. No changes. Or the new stuff just makes things worse.So when do you stop? It’s helpful to come up with some baselines. We look at other products out there, our past, and our sister product Basecamp. How are we…

The following is a guest post by Trishah Woolley. Over the years, Trishah has collected a ton of code snippets that to the job of adding IDs and classes based on some variable information, like the URL or data from WordPress. Each of these snippets were either either collected from documentation or a similar online resource, or written by Trishah based on standard features of the language and API’s involved. Over the time I have been doing WordPress web design, there are occasions when I have needed to add an ID or class to the <body> tag. For example: This often happens when integrating a 3rd party into WordPress that creates its own pages that WordPress doesn’t recognize. Or I need more nuanced classes for the site design I’m creating. To change the look of these pages in a way that the styles are scoped just to that page, we…

For more than 30 years, the Cactus Cafe has been the soul of live acoustic music in Austin. A local gem in a sea of music tranquility, Cactus Cafe provides a unique, intimate experience that both artists and audiences are unlikely to find anywhere else. It’s a rare place that showcases music in the way that every true fan hopes to experience their favorite artist: live, up close and personal. It’s a place where audiences can savor the music they love. But cactuscafe.org did not provide any information about the venue or give customers any indication of the awesomeness they were about to experience. And while Cactus Cafe’s word-of mouth reputation has reached every corner of Austin, they lacked the ability to connect with artists and customers online.
