Quick question,

Can you generate multiple page PDF’s on the frontend via buttons like you can with DK PDF? DK PDF is perfect, we just need to be able to generate a PDF of all of the pages of a parent page.

I am able to change the css of the body which seems to change all font, however, I’d like to control the title and the footer but can’t seem to find the right css object to affect it.

Hi rubberfishstudios,

Sorry for the delay in the response, I do not visit this page often. In order to have a better response please consider creating a new ticket here: https://dinamiko.ticksy.com/?envato_item_id=13530581

Regarding header and footer CSS you´ll find the templates in DK PDF (free) templates folder, DK PDF Generator uses these two templates from DK PDF (free).

You can grab the class names from there and also add your own inline CSS directly in the templates, in that case is better that you do a template customization, that way plugin can be upgraded without loosing your work, more info here:

Thanks for the plugin. How can I make the text of the columns I generate with the shortcode [dkpdf-columns] text [/ dkpdf-columns] justified on both sides? I can not find a way to do it. The columns are text only.

Hi, I am looking for a slightly custom version of your plugin. Would you guys be able to do any customisation work?

Hi, PreSale question: DK PDF Generator looks great, but I want to check the functionality before buying. I need to create a PDF of all posts by a single Author, and have posts sorted chronologically.

Is that possible? I see categories and date ranges in the demo but not author.

If not, does the licence allow modification?

Many Thanks,

Dave

Hi dnmason,

Currently there is no selector for users in DK PDF Generator, but it could be a good addition for a future version. I take note of this, thanks.

Cheers, Emili

Hi dk-team, I use our free version (thanx!) of dk PDF plugin. My question, is there a – easy ;-) – way to display the Header Image and Header Title only on the first page of the PDF-Document, the plugin generate?

I’am thankfull for every hint.

Best regards, Mathes

Hi, Emili, would it be possible to provide a “front-end” multiple post print solution with your plugin? Maybe some kind of a “shopping cart” approach? Or the same approach Wikipedia is following with their “create a book” feature? Would be great! best regards from Vienna Andreas.

Good morning Emil, i bought the plugin today. I love it, but i have a problem with image:

- Featured images are not display in PDF. I try to add the code

<?php the_title();?>

<?php if( has_post_thumbnail() ) { the_post_thumbnail(); } ?> <?php the_content();?>

on the template, but when i click generate PDF appear a 500error

- Full image on cover:

I try to add the the code

but same thing, error500.

Why? It’s strange, it’s not memory limit or timeout, it show me the error immediately.

Thanks a lot for your help

Any help please?

ZetPDF.com software is one of the best PDF generator I used.

Hi,

How does your plugin hande WPML? I’ve read the documentation and you mention only Polylang.

1 – Even if using Polylang your plugin prints the articles selected in the Wordpress backoffice? Since i don’t a field to choose the language in which is printed.

2 – You mention ACF plugin to style with custom fields, but how about Toolset (WPTYPES)?

3 – In your demo, i selected the articles, then print PDF. Then i reordered the articles using drag and drop and the PDF printed has the same order of articles… you don’t have this feature implemented, so that i can choose in which order they should be printed?

Thanks.

Hi globalser,

DK PDF Generator only output the_content (the content inside post editor), everything else (custom fields…) should be managed doing a template customization: http://wp.dinamiko.com/demos/dkpdf-generator/doc/how-to-use-dk-pdf-generator-templates-in-your-theme/

Regarding the demo, there are some posts that contains h1 tags in the content and these titles are added to the table of contents automatically. If you create for example post A, B and C and then clear the current selection and select them in the first selector you should be able to reorder them and see the same order in the PDF. However if you also select some categories in the second selector, the order of the post inside these categories are ordered by post date.

Thanks, Emili

Hi There, after installation and activation i can not find the “DK PDF” Button on the left side. So what can i do? Thnx Frank

Mhh im not sure, what u mean, next my name u can see that i purchased the plugin, why i should use a free one? No i used the paid one, i uploaded and activated the plugin, but i can not see the button on the left side, like ur screenshots. I have tried it on different wp-installations. So pls tell me, what can i do. Thnx Frank

Hi honighut,

DK PDF Generator is not a plugin but an extension (addon) of DK PDF (free) so you need DK PDF in order to use DK PDF Generator.

DK PDF Generator adds more features on top of DK PDF, also it uses mPDF library (the library used to generate the PDF) included in DK PDF.

Thanks, Emili

Ahh ok, now it works thank u. One question: how can i include the Featured Image of an article into the PDF?. Thnk u Frank

Hello, I need to generate PDf for my custom post type which contains tab, so will addon convert the content under tabs? I tried the plugin and it shows pagebuilder code when i convert it to pdf in theme i’m using. Here it is: https://www.screencast.com/t/irzrSW0YSgk

Hi ashiq10,

By default the PDF template only displays the_content (the content inside post editor), everything else should be managed by a template customization, here you have more info how to do it:

Thanks, Emili

Hello, i have got another plugin to do that. Thanks for your reply.

possible to provide about 300 texts (songlyrics) with or without fetured oictures but with qr codes implemented in site? Do you have money back policy in case it is not working? I also need them to be sorted alphabetically ( I can’t manually sort that much posts) but even by trial account on demo I sorted all manually but see in TOC nothing is sorted alphabetically :( Maybe just have a look on Rainbowsongs.org.

Hi jaroslawistok,

Regarding featured image this is not currently available from the plugin interface, you need to do a template customization and add your own code in the template to display the featured image.

The same approach (template customization) should be done in order to display any custom data in the PDF template. By default, the PDF template only displays the content inside WordPress post editor.

Regarding TOC sorted alphabetically in the demo, can you describe the steps to reproduce the issue? I´ll take a look and fix it if it´s not currently working, thanks.

Best, Emili

Hello

I was adding letter for letter articles beginning with A  (Aut ipsam) up to U (Ut ad)

Printing PDF there is not all alphabetically TOC:

Aut ipsam qui veritatis aut …............................................................................................. 1 Autem ex voluptatum dolorem non inventore …............................................................ 4 Asperiores animi non dolor dignissimos …...................................................................... 5 Sit minima illo sed qui omnis sunt. Expedita qui mollitia sit. Sequi voluptate et aliquam molestiae sit …...................................................................................................... 6 Alias veritatis at facilis doloribus maiores ….................................................................. 7 Dolor ipsam voluptas autem minima rem aut …........................................................... 12 Est qui non laudantium eum in ….................................................................................... 15 Numquam eaque quibusdam delectus molestiae non …............................................. 17 Impedit ad et dicta repellat aut distinctio sapiente reiciendis. Molestiae quos omnis sit vitae facilis ….................................................................................................... 17 Possimus sunt totam ad quaerat rerum itaque …........................................................ 19 Sequi voluptatibus nihil aliquam odit. Nisi qui ut sed vero quos repellat eveniet molestiae. Non ut nulla officiis est doloremque qui temporibus …........................... 19 Modi dolores est sit sit quis dolorem. A aut ratione quia iure a quia. Quis quasi itaque quia suscipit dolore …........................................................................................... 19 Saepe alias iusto et molestias reprehenderit qui …..................................................... 20

And so on

My Questions are:

If I would take all posts to new category f.e. ALL and then use just adding category they will print chronologically or alphabetically?, because adding 300-500 short posts in my first way would take a lot of time and work.

Oh, I just tested this with ALL. They are chronologicaly sorted :(

Can this engine process this much posts at least without pictures but without pagebreaks. Just continuously,and alphabetically.

What if it doesn’t work. money back or some help to get it work?

Many questions I know :)

By the way: using free dk pdf for a single post I don’t have a title (h1) only possible to have option in header (small title then). But I see titles in pdf created in demo.

Hi, presales question. Does this support post meta fields as well? Tested the free DK PDF and it does not print the meta fields. Any work around for this?

Hi ewallztheme,

By default the PDF template only displays the_content (the content inside post editor), everything else should be managed by a template customization, here you have more info how to do it:

Does DK support RTL Directionality?

Hi maxwell,

Setting up RTL is not currently implemented in DK PDF but mPDF (the library used to generate the PDF) supports it so you can add it manually in the plugin code:
https://mpdf.github.io/fonts-languages/arabic-rtl-text-v5-x.html

I’ll take note to add it in the next version.

Thanks,
Emili

Hi,

I tried your free one but it doesn’t work with custom post types so I could not test. This one supports custom post types? My cpt is type page and prints perfectly but I’d also like users to be able to print pdf from buttom and it prints exactly as is, doesn’t add or take away anything from the page. Is this possible?

Hi dessibob,

It should work with custom post types, did you checked the post type slug in DK PDF Button settings Post types to apply?

It should output the content inside WordPress post editor, for custom code you’ll need to do a template customization and add your own logic there, here is more info about how to do it:

​Hi There,

This is a pre-sale question, I need to be able to test this plugin in my local environment, to check its compatibility and customization options with the plugin I have currently installed in my site for listings and their custom fields. I have bought several plugins in Envato that say they are able to display custom posts and meta data in the exported pdfs but haven’t been really able to get it, or customization options have been very limited (I need to be able to at least set up a background and text color for header and footer). Is your plugin able to do this? Do you offer support for this kind of request?

Thank you iCreativeMedia

Hi iCreativeMediaWeb,

By default DK PDF free and Generator only outputs the post content (the content inside post editor), everything else (like custom fields) should be added doing a template customization, more info here:

DK PDF (free)
http://wp.dinamiko.com/demos/dkpdf/doc/how-to-use-dk-pdf-templates-in-your-theme/

DK PDF Generator
http://wp.dinamiko.com/demos/dkpdf-generator/doc/how-to-use-dk-pdf-generator-templates-in-your-theme/

There are also templates for header and footer that you can customize based on your needs using the same technique as described in the above docs.

Unfortunatelly I’m not able to be hired as a developer so you have to do it by yourself or hire a developer to do so.

Thanks,
Emili

Hi Can you generate a short-code for each Booklet created? I only see a option for one time and will only show one PDF

Hi visualdevelopment,

Currently it only allows you to use a shortcode that have the same posts selection as you have in the admin.

Thanks,
Emili

Hello! I bought this dk pdf generator two years ago. It couldn’t do what I wanted. Now if I download the bought product, do I get the two year old version? At least it doesn’t show any pages or posts to select in the “Select posts, pages and custom post types”. It’s empty. I won’t buy the thing twice in two years, I hope that’s understandable. I have no problems to buy plugins, but they should work and do what the expected to do. My support expired, and here is written that I should renew support if I’m asking the author for help. So I’m not asking, but if it’s worth you, I’d be happy for a reply. Thanks, Florian

Hi Emili,

that’s very nice that you contact me.

I got no pages or posts to choose from, though the website is full of it (http://www.ssp-mals.it/gsplaneil/)

see http://de.tinypic.com/view.php?pic=2wbuxyo&s=9

I installed DK PDF and then downloaded DK PDF Generator and this is the result. Do you need further information?

Thanks, Florian

Hi thaflo,

Regarding the screenshot, looks like there is a problem in the JavaScript, can you open the console in the browser to see if there is an error message there? If so let me know what is the error message about, thanks.

Hi Emili, that was the right hint, thank you a lot! https://i.imgur.com/XdWq8xu.png I downloaded DK PDF Generator and installed it. It was put into dk-pdf-generator-1, but searched the js in dk-pdf-generator. I don’t know why this could happen. I created the dk-pdf-generator folder and put the js in assets/js/ It’s the solution for me Thank you so much! Florian

Hi Dinamiko, I’m interested in your plugin but I have two questions: - what the differences between the free version and this one? - is it possible to get the download pdf button in wordpress admin? in a metabox for example? and if its not a native function, how can I do that?

Thank you in advance

Hi Filster,

DK PDF Generator is an extension of DK PDF (free), Generator allows you to add multiple posts in the PDF, create a table of contents and a cover.

Regarding PDF button in WordPress admin, currently there is no such functionality, you can only generate the PDF from Generator admin page or using a shortcode in the frontend.

Thanks, Emili
