Responsive Site: Printing

Could you add a print-friendly css to the site, possibly behind a "Print this thread" link?

I want to be able to print threads but WITH IMAGES AND AVATARS. However, even when I adjust the top and bottom margins, some of the page text gets chopped off the bottom.

More specifically, my interpretation of the symptoms, is that if a post is long enough to not fit on a single page (at the configured page size), it gets truncated. Instead of wrapping the rest to the next page. Since I print to pdf, I get around that by making long pages, but that is far from optimal.

Thanks for the feedback.  Greatly improved with the latest update.

That was such a speedy fix.

Works great. Thanks, Jase.

That does print much better. There is still a small glitch with the bottom margin. Depending on just where the page break occurs (for long posts), the bottom of the page footers can overlap the page content a little. About a half a line.

My environment, Fedora and Firefox, does not provide an option to adjust the margins. At least when printing to pdf. I have extremely flexible control of page sizes (just type in the desired dimensions), but not the margins.

In reply to theseeker (msg # 5):

Hmm, not seeing that in Edge or Chrome, plus both of them allow you to adjust the margins if there was a problem.  Sounds like a pretty niche issue and not something I can readily test.
