I've been asked by readers quite a bit lately if there is a way to print the hubs--particularly with recipes, but a few since posting my How to Crochet hub last night.
I remember bringing this up before, and it was on the to do list.
So, how is that coming along?
Inquiring minds long to know. Thanks.
The todo list keeps growing:) I think it's a good and useful feature. I'm not sure where it is in the overall list, but it will be here some day. We ususally bump stuff up when people ask for it.
Thanks for reminding us.
I understand about the ever growing to do list! Mine is the same way.
Thanks for the update. I'll pass it on to those asking me.
We just rolled out our first pass at making hubs print more nicely. Please let me know if you notice any problems. It should filter out pretty much everything except the contents of the hub.
OK, this is strange. I recently started my own site to deal with this for the same reason and have stared putting a PDF/Printer friendly link on the bottom of by recipes.

But I would much prefer a Hubpages version.
Mark, we just used CSS to hide the elements that we didn't want to appear in the printed version. You can do that using "@media print", something like this:
That way you don't have to have a separate link or anything, you just use the regular browser print function.
Nice looking site, Mark. How is Joomla to work with?
So far, things have been printing pretty okay. Just to let you guys know. You probably hear more complaints than positives.
I know it helps to be able to print out recipes. Thanks!

Do you print out or back up hubs?I realised yesterday I had no copies of my hubs if anything happened to the site, so printed them out. Do you take precautions? I guess the problems with stats spooked me.

Don't know if this could be an easy addition or major update to HubPages, but I was hoping if there would be a way to add a capsule that is capable of being "printable."This would come in handy and very reader-friendly to viewers on Hubs such as Recipes. I could think of others as well,...

I just read a Hub about apple pie recipes that got a huge amount of comments, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a food & cooking related hub had such response when mines barely get 3 or 4 comments and are equally good quality articles. What am I doing wrong?!?!

I was thinking of creating some hubs about making doll clothes and wanted to attach templates that readers could print out on A4 paper and use for patterns. There doesn't seem to be any way to do this at the moment. Can anyone offer a good suggestion on how to do this? The idea is...

Dear Fellow Hubbers,I've put together <no links please!> which I use to drive traffic to my hubs and blogs. This list is based on about 1 year of trial and error with scores of websites. On my list you'll find lots of social bookmarking, social networking, social shopping, classified ads...

We're testing out a Facebook Social Plugin at the bottom of the sidebar on hubs. It shows personalized activity feeds (the most interesting recent activity taking place on HubPages) and personalized recommendations (hubs). You can read more about it and other plugins here.
