Blog-gone it- that’s a Great Idea! Print a Blog Post as a PDF in Just One Click

Printing blog posts can be beneficial for a few reasons. Some families don’t have internet access and may request that their child’s work be sent home. At times we also want to print hard copies of the work our students are sharing for display, documentation, or reference. In just a few simple steps, you can instal a print friendly button to the bottom of each blog post and page automatically so you can and your students can print anything anytime.

Here’s what you need to do to install the Print Friendly Plugin:

1. Visit your blog Dashboard and click on Plugins.
