New in Tiki18


PluginPDFpage is another wiki plugin for mPDF. Its function is to customize page settings for PDF output of any specific page (also works over multiple pages).

PluginPDF sets parameters for the wiki page, while PluginPDFpage changes the parameters just for a specific blob of text.

An example of usage is to switch from portrait to landscape for one large table, and to change back after the table.
