My 1st question is: Has anyone ever used as their iPage web host? Hoping for any comment. My 2nd question... How would I go about coding a page to NOT print the header and footer of a page that is printed through a browser? I am working on an online application for a company, and they want to be able to print invoices. It doesn't look very professional with the header and footer on the page (page title, page number, URL, date)..

Any help would be greatly appreciated....thanks!..

I'm stumped. I'm not so sure what is the answer to that question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

They are talking about the url thwat is printed on the very bottom of everypage when it prints. that is there by the browser and I don't think even css will take it off...

Comment #2

Well then... it all depends on the setup of the user!? Non? In the print setup stuff?!..

Comment #3

I don't know if the user can control that...without copying and pasting to a Word doc, or some other editor...

Comment #4

Yeah but.... what about this (see attached)!?.

Or.... you can create your invoice with PDF and Perl... make a script that'll dump your stuff in a PDF format?..

Comment #5

That's exactly what I was looking for....

...I never knew that was there. I guess I would have never looked there. Thanks for your help, karinne!..

Comment #6

Woo-hooo.... we figured it out! Alright! Another satisfied customer!..

Comment #7

Yeah, but you are going to tell the user to clear that out all the time before they print? no that is not the option to go to. I beleive css can change that and I am looking...

Comment #8

Really? Wow.... that'd be nice to know! At least the page setup is an interim solution until we find something else!..

Comment #9

The users aren't going to be printing their own invoices. This will be done by one of the employees of the company I am doing the work for, on the company's PC..

...this is the solution I need....thanks for everyone's input!..

Comment #10

All is well then.... but scoutt.... I'd still like to know!..

Comment #11

I'd love to find this out with CSS as well. You can disable it with local IE settings:.


And clear out the header and footer textareas...

Comment #12

Nope you can't, which is what I thought..


That will tell you what you want. and it is an ActiveX solution.

SUpitch15, that is fine then...

Comment #13

Thank you for your efforts...I hope I didn't seem ungrateful or unappreciative. Karinne's solution was all I needed, since it only has to be done on one machine..


Comment #14

No problem, it is sensible to do it on 1 machine as opposed to the whole net doing it. good luck..
