Print, Damn Blogger...Print!

In the words of Jenny of Absolutely Bananas fame, DOWN with Blogger! Up with Wordpress!

My mother wanted to print my tribute to my dad on our birthday so that he could read it. Such a simple request. But would Blogger oblige? Of course not. It prints the first page fine, but the next few pages are nothing but my avatar. WTF?

So I imported the post to my Wordpress trial blog and guess what. It prints fine from there.

It seems my exodus from Blogger will be sooner than planned. Stay tuned...

DOWN with Blogger! Up with Wordpress!
DOWN with Blogger! Up with Wordpress!
DOWN with Blogger! Up with Wordpress!

Feel free to chant with me....

I'll be pleased enough to leave WP once I am done the travel blog. It's a PITA. Not saying that Blogger isn't also though.

I hear you about Blogger. I thought all this was supposed to get better with the Beta thing. Not that I really understand all of that-- Just want it to work!

I love your blog!

I've found the same problem just today! My wife has meal recipes site and our friend wanted to print the recipe out - but she couldn't. It works somehow in IE, but not in Firefox - and after Print preview, you can't even drag&select text. That's... well that's beyond hilarious. That's sad in 2008. Any layout I tried, it all was pretty the same way. I always considered printing to be normal thing - even to that extent I forget to check it here.

I'll give one shot for this advice: http://labnol.blogspot.com/2006/08/blogger-hacks-how-to-enable-printer.html
I'll see. ;-)
