HTML to PDF Converter

Description

The “HTML to PDF Converter” WordPress plugin created by html2pdf.app, provides an easy way to convert any WordPress page or post to a PDF file. Simply install the plugin, configure your API key and conversion settings, and use the shortcode [html2pdf text="Save as PDF"] to add a PDF conversion link to any page or post on your site.

Plugin Settings

To configure the plugin, go to the “Settings -> HTML to PDF” page and enter your html2pdf.app API key. You can get the API key by registering an account on https://dash.html2pdf.app/registration.

You can also customize the PDF conversion settings, including the format, orientation (portrait or landscape), margins, and custom page size.

Usage

Examples

@media print {
  /* Hide everything */
  * {
      visibility: hidden;
      margin: 0;
      padding: 0;
  }

  /* Make only your desired content visible */
  .your-visible-content * {
      visibility: visible;
  }

  /* Optionally hide the conversion link from the PDF */
  .html2pdf_button {
      visibility: hidden!important;
  }
}

Good try!But!The website is not taken over directly, but probably rebuilt by html2pdf on their server. This means that only static pages can be transferred. But I have a website where a query runs on the posts. These variables are lost and the PDF page second only scrap. Too bad, two hours invested for nothing. Zero Star!
