#148 closed enhancement (wontfix)

view paginated pages as single entry for printing

Reported by: Grod Owned by: mdawaffe
Milestone: Priority: low
Severity: normal Version:
Component: General Keywords: bg|2nd-opinion has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


When using pagination in an entry it should be possible to provide an alternate permalink that gives a printer friendly page. This page would ignore occurances of <!--nextpage--> in a post. This would be useful from an accessibility standpoint , for printing, and for those readers who prefer scrolling over clicking to the next page. The link should be added automatically to the normal permalink in the form of an icon or "print this" text.

halfway down the page. The modification is simple to make.

  • Keywords bg|2nd-opinion added
  • Priority changed from normal to low

Would a simple template tag, linking to a printable view, resolve this?

Basically, I think he wants this: Pages: 1 2 3 4 All

Where "All" would compress them all together.

  1. Gets rid of more_file parameter in the_content. It doesn't work and there are better methods for this (theme system, permalink filters, rewrite rules...).
  2. If optional all_page_link parameter is passed, display a link that concatenates all pages.
  3. New query is ?page=0 or /my-page/0/ . Could have gone for ?page=all, but that's not i18n friendly.

Uploaded new versions of 148b and 148c to remove some debugging.

148c.diff: I'm not sure about this, please discuss.

  1. All of 148b.diff
  2. To avoid duplicate content, rel="nofollow" on the "all" link and
  3. meta nofollow,noindex tags on the "all" page. This was done by tweaking noindex() and default-filters.php and throwing a hack into &get_posts.

Is the duplicate content issue a problem at all? If it is, is this a fair solution?
