As an easier alternative to this, you can use Print link plugin https://www.seblod.com/store/extensions/21189 that can be applied to text or buttons
This tutorial walks through how to create a "print" button within your SEBLOD Content View.
- In Joomla, the /templates/$template/component.php file controls the layout of the print view of an article (see this Joomla documentation for more information)
- You can access this template, with the contents of your Content View, by adding the following variables to the end of your URL: ?tmpl=component&print=1.
- So, in your Content View, add a custom link to your printable page which looks like: would be www.yourwebsite.com/your-article-content-view?tmpl=component&print=1 - one way to achieve this is by using a position override and the code:
<a href="/<?php echo JURI::current(); ?>?tmpl=component&print=1" target="_blank">Print</a>
- You can then alter the layout / formatting of your print page by editing the component.php file of your Joomla template.
If you'd like to render your Content View contents in a pdf file, please follow this Joomla documentation as a guide.
