Some online shops have pdf pages - how?

Some online shops have pdf pages are these automatically created by their cart or are they manually creating them?



When viewing a product they have a link to the pdf version of the online page… how is it done?



Thanks

For example with Adobe Acrobat… when installed, you will be able to print any webpage as a PDF document.

Oh right, so the shopping cart does not make them but you have to manually make them…



When you say installed, installed on my home computer or on my server?

On your PC…

Create a subdirectory in your store called “docs”.

Put your pdf files in that directory.

Create whatever links you want in pages blocks and use /docs/ as the link name.

Hello Badmaash,



No need to create it, no need to stock it, no need to have Acrobat. :rolleyes:



Some Shopping Carts have this feature build in, as Virtuemart.



The PDF is rendered on the fly, like a HTML page in a dynamic web engine.



Here is a Virtuemart product:

Here is the PDF of this product:

[SIZE=“3”]This dynamic PDF file is automaticaly created with FPDF.[/SIZE]



I know, this feature is not included in CS-Cart. It’s a pity, because that’s very useful in a SEO purpose, because, sometime you have 2 listing: One for your HTML page, one more for your PDF file. Cool :wink:



Hope this help,
