Our ‘Save as PDF’ service lets your visitors save your web pages as PDF without leaving your website and with just a single click. You get to choose from a lot of different settings to optimize your conversion and make sure the PDF looks exactly the way YOU want it.
Just put a link like below on your webpage and if a visitor clicks on it we’ll display the PDF of that webpage!
<a href="http://www.htm2pdf.co.uk/display">Save this page as PDF</a>
In our members area you’ll be able to set default page format, margins, header & footer etc. And you can also choose to set the defaults in the link on your web page. You just add the parameters you need to your link:
|url||URL of the web page that you’d like have converted – this must be a URL on the same (sub-)domain and include the whole domain including the ‘http://’|
Note: if you want to pass extra parameters to the URL you have to escape the ampersand (&) sign in the URL to %26 (more info in our blog)
|filename||Filename for the PDF|
|pagesize||Set page size like A3, A4, Letter etc. Please refer to the list of allowed page sizes|
|orientation||Specify portrait or landscape orientation|
|width||Custom width of the PDF|
|height||Custom height of the PDF, if you specify the width, but not the height, then we fit the whole page into a one page PDF by auto-adjusting the height of the PDF.|
|unit||Unit for size & margin settings. Can be ‘mm’ (millimeters), ‘in’ (inches) or ‘pt’ (points). We’ll use mm in case you don’t specify a unit.|
|cmt||Set the CSS media type so you can influence better how your content is converted to PDF. We currently support the values print and screen. If you don’t specify one, we take the one you’ve set in the members area. The default there is screen.|
See w3schools for more information on CSS media types.
|links||Enable links in the PDF with the value on or disable links with the value off. The default is to enable links.|
Note on measurements: in case you only specify a height then we’ll ignore it; In case you only specify a width we’ll assume you want a single page PDF. In case you specify one or more margins, but not all, we’ll assume the others to be 0.
