    My husband and I like watching the food channel on television.  If we see a recipe we might like to try, we go to their website and there is a Print feature that we have utilized many times.  One can also leave comments but those are not printed along with the recipe.  Am wondering if this would be possible with HubPages?  It would be a wonderful extra feature to encourage people to come here for ready access to recipes they like reading and might wish to collect.  It might also be good advertising for HubPages.  What do you think?

      Absolutely, Peggy W. I have also thought, "Wouldn't a print option on recipe hubs be awesome?" Hope it happens. Any more support for printable recipes on the Hub out there?

      That is a great suggestion. I think it would be used a lot. It would require a standard layout but that is okay. I publish many recipes and following a template would actually make it easier.

      There is definitely support for a printer friendly version out here!  I asked a question about this a few months ago in the "New Hubfeatures suggestions" forum, but never heard back.  I think that would make a attractive addition to recipe hubs for readers.  I have printed out loads of recipes over the years.  Keeping my fingers crossed!

    You should also be able to print it without a print button with adobe pdf print drivers installed. Recipes are like gold this time of yer so I understand

    This is a terrific suggestion. I use the print button on other recipe sites all the time. After I print a recipe out and make the dish, if I decide that I like it and want to make it again, I use my handy 3-hole punch and slip the page into a recipe binder that I keep on the shelf with all my cookbooks. I would love to have this option on hubpages. It would be great if they could set it up like other recipe sites have done, with the website name and contributor's name included on every printout.

      I think that it would also be good advertising for HP as you just said SmartAndFun with the HP website name and writer's name on each printed sheet.  Wonder how hard this would be to set up?  Since so many other cooking related websites offer it, it shouldn't be too hard to accomplish?

    Great ideas;  perhaps they can print them with just the name of the Hubber and the content (no ads, Amazon capsules, etc).

    For now, I print the webpages as PDFs onto my computer, so I always have them. Then I just print them out from there. Though I suppose I could do the same thing from the browser.

    Hi Peggy W, thanks for the suggestion.

    We already have a print-specific stylesheet that removes much of the content that's not useful in print. Have you tried printing a recipe? Which things specifically were you looking to also have removed? Could you paste a link to an example recipe site that prints like you're referring to?

    I also like this suggestion. I often copy and paste many of the good recipes I find on Hubpages, but it would be so simple to just push a print button.
