Printing Hirhurim

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

After a number of requests I thought it best if I clarify for everyone how to print a Hirhurim post. After each post, the bold phrase “Share and Enjoy” appears. Below this appear a number of icons linking to various services, including Facebook and Twitter. Clicking on these icons allows you to easily share this post. The first icon, however, gives you a printer friendly version of the post. Click on the icon that looks like this and you will see what I mean.

  1. Of course, I assume you are paying royalties to the estate of Douglas Adams for the use of the phrase “share and enjoy.”

  2. Thanks – works pretty well in Safari (v5) on my Mac.

    I hoped the print layout would also work well for viewing on mobile devices, but on my iPod touch (iOS 4.1) it comes out kind of funky. Whatever happened to the mobile version of the blog?

  3. The mobile version of the blog was through Onbile, which doesn’t let readers see comments. I’m open to other suggestions.

  4. Thanks!

    I just stole a look at your home page’s source code, and I’m guessing that you’re using WordPress. (Please tell me if I’m wrong!) I’m a WordPress newbie myself, but they do seem to offer plugins for mobile viewing, including this one, which looks promising, if not glamorous:

    There’s also a plugin for Mippin, which I suspect works kind of like Onbile (only better, I hope!): Now that I think of it, this may be easier to implement than the first plugin.

    And thank you again for providing an island of Torah in the great sea of the blogosphere.

  5. I think there is something missing from your comment, after the word “glamorous”.

    Thank you SO much! And please convey my appreciation to whoever found/recommended WPTouch. It’ much, much better than the plugins I had found. (I sure hope I’m not the only one who’s asked for a mobile-friendly version of the blog!)

  7. Someone stopped me last night to point out the iPhone problems with what I was using. He showed me that works well and I just took the PlugIn that they use.
