I'm running off Joomla 2.5. I suppose with CSS I could align it to where I want it. Perhaps an additional trigger could be added where one could paste it in with the following code: {pdf}

I've seen Jcomments and other extensions do this. With another extension called nt3template I can have it auto generate on my page making it so that I can place it anywhere in the article.

Also in my example below the full path is visible if you hover over it.

Could this be made to work with other components such as K2?

Nice job! There's a bit of a problem with displaying pictures that are linked from external websites. It seems to add the site url to the image source which looks like this:

Image not found
http://www.alpinejosh.comhttp://images.summitpost.org/large/811977.jpg

It should read it as:
http://images.summitpost.org/large/811977.jpg

As for the pdf icon next to the image, I too would like this. Phoca PDF does this as seen here:

Thanks for the detailed feedback. I think I should be able to fix that image bug with a bit of work since it seems like a common problem.

As far as the icon goes is that a what type of joomla installation is that running on? The button would be easy with a core hack but this is not desirable. Its tough in 2.5 because there is no trigger at that part of the code.

Installed the plugins and published told I need dompdf. Got it upzipped into /library/ dompdf as requested admin crashed with

"Notice: Constant DOMPDF_ENABLE_REMOTE already defined in /homepages/43/d132734153/htdocs/MountainArks/Bathurst01/libraries/dompdf/dompdf_config.inc.php on line 196

Fatal error: Class 'DOMPDF' not found in /homepages/43/d132734153/htdocs/MountainArks/Bathurst01/plugins/system/pdfcontent/pdfcontent.php on line 112"

had to disable dompdf with ftp to get the admin interface back...


Further investigation shows that only "System - PDF Content" crashed the admin interface "Content - PDF Button" doesn't.


Thanks for the compliment. I bumped your support request to the support forum for reply.
