Steven, attached to our attorney profiles we’re trying to use another plugin that generates PDFs of pages, including images. However, we’ve realized the attorney’s image is missing from the PDF. According to the plugin developer it cannot grab the image via the “srcset=” method. So, my questions are:
* are we able to change the method to “src=” in Connections-Pro temporarily or will that break the function of the plugin?
* if we can do that as a stopgap measure while either the PDF plugin developer updates or we find a different solution, where could we alter that method?
* Or, is there a way we could have both srcset and src properties simultaneously

I suggest trying the Print O Matic Plugin, several users have had success in using it to create PDF version of their directories.
Removing the srcset and replacing it with src is not all that straightforward and require quite a few code changes.
If you add some code to this line. You would access the
$atts['srcset']array to get the image path and add it as a new array key
$atts['src']. Then unset the
Hope that helps!05/02/2016 at 2:05 pm #374982
Thanks Steven, I’ll check out the suggested plugin first.05/02/2016 at 2:24 pm #374985
I took a look through Print-O-Matic and its premium version. I don’t find any information regarding generating PDFs with the plugin. Are you sure that’s the correct plugin?05/02/2016 at 2:39 pm #374987
Yes, I’m fairly certain. I could have sworn that it a PDF out too. Perhaps the other were using it to print the page using Chrome’s built in PDF printer.05/09/2016 at 3:29 pm #375665
Hey Steven, what is the best way for me to ask the user audience if anyone has overcome this hurdle? In my case, I PDF generation has to be a simple process. It cannot rely on using specific tools on the user end. I’m surprised that I have not easily found another option. I’m hoping someone can point me in a better direction.05/10/2016 at 5:15 pm #375900
Probably the forums but getting a response other than me is likely very low. I have looked into creating a PDF tool for Connections but really have not pursued it because of low demand and more importantly the tools available to me as a dev to create PDFs are not very likely to work well enough or not at all on shared hosts where server resources are very very slim. This would cause a lot of headache for me providing support for users trying to use it on shared hosts.
