Joomla 1.6 – Where is the PDF Icon Link?

If you were using Joomla 1.5, you will recall that under the article options you were able to show PDF, Email and Print icons for each article.  Now if you look at your article options in Joomla 1.6 the Email and Print icons are there excpet for the PDF icon.  It’s gone.  Where did it go??

In Joomla 1.6 they removed the article option parameter for the PDF icon.  PDF conversion of articles is no longer supported in core Joomla 1.6.  This is unfortunate since the PDF icon was such a useful function.

If you are looking for a Joomla 1.6 compatible extension that will help you convert articles into PDF files, I would recommend the extension called – Phoca PDF.  It enables you to set and create PDF documents in Joomla!.  To read more about this Extensions or to demo it, click here.

The whole Phoca PDF framework contains:

  • Phoca PDF component
  • Phoca PDF fonts
  • Phoca PDF plugins

The Phoca PDF extension is Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 1.6 compatible.  To download this extension package, click here.  Download the extension zip and upload it directly to your Extensions Manager.
