Question from a PRO member;
I'm having some printing format problems with some of the recent postings, including today's topic. When I go to print the document there is only an all black color sheet shown and printed. I thought something must be awry with my printer settings but it is not happening at various other sites that I am printing from.
Never having tried to print one of our posts, I wasn't aware that when you try to print a post or page it looks crappy and much of the printed page is in fact all black. Not good, considering how expensive printer ink is these days 🙁
The problem, it turned out, is the software that runs our site does a terrible job rendering the page so it can be printed.
At the bottom of every post you will now find a little "Print Friendly" button. Give it a try and see how it displays a nicely formatted document that can print, create a PDF or email a copy to yourself or a friend. There's also a box you can tick to remove any images, saving your color cartridge from unnecessary use.

thanks john. perfecto. much appreciated.
Thanks for this feature John.
I tend to print out a lot of what I read on internet sites. It’s not that I hate trees but I still prefer to sit and read print on a page that you can fondle, turn over, dog-ear etc. etc. I’ve had reasonable success even without the “printer friendly” option just by highlighting what I want and then checking the “selection” mode on my print options…….but it sucks like a Dyson if I do this on one of those loooong threads on, say Pedal-On, and forget the “selection” thingy
I wanted to make the suggestion ages ago but thought I’d look like a bit of a Luddite…..like, maybe, someone who’s only just graduated from an old Nokia or someone who can’t read off a computer screen and still orders catalogues that come by snail-mail.
Chortle all you like, but I have the old Masters Athletes Physiology and Performance site (maintained up until a few years ago by Stephen Seiler) well archived and filling up quite a few spots on my “library” shelves. Luddite…..or Wise Virgin?
