Printing Blog Posts

I like printing blog posts and reading them later, but too many blogs don’t provide functionality to print well formatted posts. I end up printing sidebars, advertisements and other clutter along with the post, thanks to lousy print formatting in browsers. What a waste !

It is actually quite easy to add a “Print This Post” button to a WordPress blog. One great option (the one I use on this blog) is WP-Print. Make sure you read Installation and Usage instructions. Brilliant job !

Another option is HP Blog Printing. This works with some other blogging platforms also. I like the simplicity of WP-Print more than the feature set of HP plugin. HP also requires you to sign up.

How do you format posts for printing, when a blog doesn’t have such feature ?
