Add Print Stylesheet

Last Updated Jan 31, 2021

This plug-in with separate versions for Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.x loads a print stylesheet in the [template path]/css folder.

Most templates do not include a print stylesheet by default but a print stylesheet can be useful to remove unwanted elements from printed copies of your web pages. This might include dark ink wasting backgrounds, menus and other elements that have no use in a printed copy.

The main advantage of using AddPrintStylesheet compared to manually editing your template code is that the change will not be overwritten by template updates.

The plug-in is installed using the standard Joomla installer. You can install a newer version over an older version.

Upload the print stylesheet CSS file (e.g. print.css) to the [template path]/css folder.

In Plug-in Manager, edit "System - Add Print Stylesheet", add the stylesheet file name (e.g. print.css) and enable the plugin.

That's all there is to it!
