Description
Related to http://dev.tikiwiki.org/bug1184 . Opened a new one since those comments below are updated of a new trial I made today - Jan. 7th, 2009

Issues detected while dogfooding "minimum-clicks for pdf from doc.tw.o/Documentation structure". An opportunity to improve the current features for production.

and
http://doc.tikiwiki.org/tiki-print_pages.php

Printed to html using SeaMonkey browser 1.1.12 and to pdf CUPS/pdf printer, both under Ubuntu 8.04 GNU/Linux
page numbers refer to a pdf produced today out of there:

-----------------------------

  • page 39: .htaccess from dynamic content is not shown in the full page. Can this be modified at printing time so that the full content is shown on the page?

  • page 41: a CODE block longer than a single sheet of paper is cut at the end of the page, not showing the rest of the content. Can this be modified at printing time so that the full content is shown on the page?

  • Some pages didn't have the title manually displayed. Those ones doesn't show the title of the page (as section of the full pdf)... Maybe the best workaround is to add a setting for the user to select whether he/she wants adding all page names as titles to the pages, or not. For our case, maybe it's easier to remove extra title (easy to identify when you have too title too similar one after the other) than having to figure out where a new page starts... (see plugins pages...). Example: page 127: PluginJS is shown, fine, but not PluginLang, PluginListpages? Plugin Manager?, on the following pages...

  • copyright license is needed at the end?

  • It would be nice to allow at structure-printing time to select which version among the ones allowed by the PLUGIN VERSIONS (where applicable), had to be selected for printing. Right now, it might be useful for people looking for an updated documentation for their 1.9.x, so that all plugin versions were pre-set to display the content from 1.9.x. Moreover, after April (only some months to go for that) we will have the same issue with people looking for 3.x documentation, or just 2.x. Well, this is just to raise this point for the following months, so that, the better for us for producing our own documentation, the better for other communities producing their documentation using Tiki and coping with their versions also... (Firefox, for instance?)

  • when the content is copied and pasted to OpenOffice (using OOo 2.x and 3.x), there are images or tables which are wider than the page size.

  • Is it possible to have page breaks added before headings of level X (and let the user select a page break just before a heading level 1, and 2, for instance).

Update on Dec 7th, 2012 (Tiki9.x LTS):

  • RFE still valid....

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
