Printing and PDFs - Can Tiki do it?

I thought I'd seen a PDF icon somewhere in the wiki page editing controls. Is there such a thing? I cannot find a 'PDF Generation' control under Admin | Wiki.

More than that, I'd like to know if there is a way of printing a group of wiki pages at once. Does Tiki do it?


beginning to get somewhere - maybe: http://doc.tiki.org/Print+Indexed

Tiki doesn't support PDF generation natively. However, you can easily use 3rd party tools such as PDFmyURL or AddThis to add this functionality.

To print multiple wiki pages at once, use the Multi-print feature.

It does clarify things, so yes, thanks, it helps.
I'm trying to find a way of printing 45+ wiki pages as a booklet, with the page/style formatting intact. So far have used Multi-print and a whole lot of style editing afterwards.

Perhaps you will find my experiences helpful:

The wiki pages on this website (www.n1mm.com) multi-print to a 722 page PDF document, using Multi-print, structures, TOC and MAKETOC. I describe the method used, and the quality of the results, in my recent posting in the "Documentation" forum. I have also written a Users Guide instructing our website users how to accomplish PDF creation. You will find the Users Guide referenced in that same posting.

My goal was to enable users to create identical PDF documents from tiki pages & structures, without any intermediate manual editing.
