Picture of the error

The PDF cannot be viewed.

Ups, I made a screenshot and then found this line in the topic code:

Here's the complete Foswiki documentation in [[%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%SYSTEMWEB%/CompleteDocumentation?contenttype=application/pdf][PDF]].

Obviously one must have the plugin installed in order to get this working. Can the complete documentation be attached to the topic directly? Then users which have not installed the plugin will be able to view it too. The test link can be kept too but should be clearly marked as such.

-- IngoKappler - 03 Jun 2009

Ok, another misunderstanding. :-| You are referring with complete Foswiki documentation not to the complete Foswiki GenPDFPrincePlugin configuration but to the real Foswiki documenation about Foswiki. Could have seen that directly but had in mind this all refers to the plugin.

Anyhow, maybe it could be expressed in a way which is less confusing for people like me unless you believe I am the only problem here. wink

In the meantime I installed it even and it basically works. But using the link:
creates this PDF with just 2 pages not even holding the full TOC. I also looked at other topics which where not completely presented either. It seems only 1 page is rendered and the second will only hold the footer.

-- IngoKappler - 03 Jun 2009

I can reproduce this using PatternSkin.


There might be a problem with PatternSkin's css for print media. Using skin=plain will at least work around it.

-- MichaelDaum - 03 Jun 2009

The work around you suggested works, therefore I added to the GenPDFPrincePlugin topic in my installation the following:

Get a PDF by adding =contenttype=application/pdf;skin=plain= to the view url like this if the former link has issues as listed in [[][Item1680]]:
<verbatim class="tml">

Here's the complete Foswiki documentation in [[%SCRIPTURL{"view"}%/%SYSTEMWEB%/CompleteDocumentation?contenttype=application/pdf;skin=plain][PDF with appended ;skin=plain]]

This confirms to move the issue from GenPDFPrincePlugin to PatternSkin.

-- IngoKappler - 04 Jun 2009

This may be related to Item8615. Changing state to confirmed.

-- MichaelTempest - 24 Jun 2010

Item8615 was fixed in 1.0.10 and 1.1.0, so a retest should confirm this. Waiting for me now.

3+ years, no feedback, setting to No Action.
