Printing Squishdot Articles?
How-To Posted by Ed Learned on Wednesday January 15, 03:52PM, 2003
from the dept.
Has anyone tried to print (or export to a file that could be printed), squishdot articles?

I am trying to find a way to get a hard copy of all squishdot articles on a site I've implemented. Has anyone done anything like this?

    Have you tried File --> Print from your browser?

    What would you like to have happen?

    This code posted to the mailing list has proved to be very helpful in my similar endeavors:

    (It doesn't do the threading you're probably hoping for...)

    Set the size to a large number for all values.
    Check the source for more variables to plug in.

    I'm still not sure what the mystical "getObject" call does, but that's the key to getting at the objects properties.

    <dtml-with "this()">

    <dtml-unless your_subject>
    <dtml-call "REQUEST.set('your_subject', '')">

    <dtml-in "this()(subject=your_subject, meta_type='Article')" size=10
    start=hasi sort=id reverse>

    <dtml-with getObject>

    <dtml-if sequence-start>
    <dtml-if previous-sequence>
    <a href="<dtml-var URL><dtml-var
    sequence-query>hasi=<dtml-var previous-sequence-start-number>">Previous
    </dtml-if previous-sequence>
    </dtml-if sequence-start>

    <h3><a href="<dtml-var site_url><dtml-var thread_path>/<dtml-var id>"><dtml-var title></a></h3>
    <dtml-var author>, <dtml-var date_posted><br>
    <p><dtml-var showSummary></p>
    <p><dtml-var showBody></p>

    <dtml-if sequence-end>
    <dtml-if next-sequence><tr><td colspan="2"><br><a
    href="<dtml-var URL><dtml-var sequence-query>hasi=<dtml-var
    next-sequence-start-number>">Next articles</a></td></tr>
    </dtml-if next-sequence>
    </dtml-if sequence-end>
