    Hi there

    Does anyone know of a printer friendly software that can work within a password protected area of a site? My current one no longer works now. I want to be able to strip images and navigation from my password protected pages so my clients can print the pages easily.

    Kind regards

    Use css to format your page. With css there is an ability to create a version of the page for the screen and a version for the printer.

    Look at this page:

    The print the page and you'll see all images and columns gone.

    There is info online for css--look for a tutorial.

    PS, amember uses css

    Thanks for that, Tom.

    I had no idea that there was an option like that.

    Excellent! Will look for a tutorial on this.

    Hi all

    Hi again

    In case anyone else is interested I found a really simple tutorial for this:

    I use dreamweaver so my tables all had "names". To make this work I changed the table from:
    <table border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="750" name="topnavigation">

    <table id=topnavigation border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="750">

    ... so the css styles could pick up the table, that held my navigation at the top of the page, and remove it when the webpage is printed or viewed in print preview.

    For someone like me who needs a css for dummies type tutorial :) it worked like a breeze and is easy, easy, easy, to add to your web pages.

    I am stoked! Thanks heaps, Tom, for telling me about this option.

    Kind regards
    Mandy :D
