We’re finishing few days full of little upgrades and new features with something very valuable – new print styles. If you tried to print any of the LJ pages in the past you sure noticed that it was a complete mess. I’ve finally found some time this weekend to work on the printer-friendly version.

Header, footer, menus, banners and other parts that are not useful in the print version are now hidden when you hit Print button in your browser. The remaining content is slightly reformatted to make reading on the paper easier.

Enjoy!

Hello Martin;
—-what can I say but thanks!!!

I am one of those who have had problems with the print offs in the past and while just looking this over in my ‘print preview’, the text and pictures are much cleaner. In the past I have resorted to reformatting in OpenOffice and other formats, but you just keep making it easier, to just stay here with all the features you are continually bringing forth. Knowing of your dedication to LJ and all those here, makes me some-time wonder when you have any-time, to pursue a life of your own.

I’m not one for finding and asking what’s wrong or lacking here with the website and so I just make-do with what you’ve made available to us here and then usually some-where down the road, you come forth with a better way of making the site….’user friendly’.

I will also mention that although I was not around at the initial opening of the website, hmmm….seems I joined in later October or November, this place has taken off by leaps and bounds, and there is ‘much good’, for all that come here. Some blog, (myself included) while other’s post pictures, some write articles in the forums and post videos with examples of helps, while many post projects, ask questions….debate, (of which I would like to see more of—-in the right spirit this can be a healthy addition to the body) and then other’s can shop through-out the site, and then there is all-ways more then enough room for those who like commenting or critiquing.

Now I’m sure that in the above categories of what we all do by coming here, I have left some-ones field of expertise out and for that….please forgive me, as this was not on purpose, but just the failing memory of an ancient rustic wood spirit. So with all that said, let me now kick some cyber-air-space here and make room for the next worker of wood who wants to come in and sound some words.

Thank you Martin, LJ and all those that happen, to make this such a great place to hang ones hat….
GODSPEED,
Frank
