Press and PRINT?


When you have a website, how can you make a button so it takes the main information?

So, say you have a recepty, and you ahve all the igridients etc..

How do you make it, so you print it, but you don't preint the navigation header images... ?

Is this done with Web technologies and no server side language?

I'm just doing front-end, or learning it.

:point_right: Anything to do with presentation or printing will be front-end.

A server may offer a special "printer friendly" version of the page content, but ultimately anything to do with the presentation will occur in the browser.

One way to omit items from page when printing is to use a CSS media query. For example, if you place this in your CSS:

@media print
    .no-print {
        display: none !important;

Then anything you give the class no-print to will show up on the screen, but not in a printed version of the page.
