Item793: Print crops the page in PatternSkin and thus in Foswiki.org skin
Current State: Closed
Released In: 1.0.1
Target Release: patch
All printouts on foswiki.org are cropped today. See here:
See it yourself at: http://foswiki.org/Community/FAQ?cover=print
Please be more specific in your bug description. Instead of "Create a working print feature in Foswiki and on our website", which implies print does not work, we have a "Print crops the page" bug.
What's worse: this bug is in pattern skin when you use a frame around the content plus the sidebar at the right.

Reopened because the problem reappears in 1.0.9 (at least with Firefox 3.6). To reproduce it, open (for example) http://foswiki.org/Community/FAQ?cover=print
(which looks alright) and check your browser's print preview. The problem occurs with Firefox 3.6 (Linux and Windows) in a number of different setups, it does not occur with previous versions of Firefox. Currently, I can't reproduce it with browsers different from Firefox, even though I am pretty sure I have occasionally seen it in Internet Explorer. With PlainSkin
, even Firefox 3.6 produces correct printouts, see for example the print preview of http://foswiki.org/Community/FAQ?cover=print;skin=plainskin
Firefox is generally known to have some printing issues, especially when printing pages with frames and iframes or pages using position:absolute (see, for example, bugreports 539703
, 428965 478641
on bugzilla - some of these bugs are still alive in 3.6 and bugzilla has a number of similar reports).
Even if this turns out to be a Firefox bug instead of a Foswiki bug, it might be worth considering to fix PatternSkin
in a way that allows Firefox3.6 users to print. More and more Firefox users switch to 3.6 and who knows when Mozilla will fix it.

We try to keep track on which bugs are closed in which versions. Basic configuration management
This bug report was followed by a fix and released in 1.0.1. It is OK to reopen a bug if the fix made is not OK and no release has been made yet. But this is not the case.
This is one year later.
The behaviour seems different. If I have a 10 page document, Firefox 3.6 only prints the first page, then the WebBottomBar
on the next and stops.
I will transfer this to new bug report. Item8615
