No longer maintained, not compatible with PHP 8 Like the title says, this plugin is no longer maintained and it is not compatible with PHP 8. This is the error it outputs using PHP 8.0: Array and string offset access syntax with curly braces is no longer supported in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/dk-pdf/vendor/mpdf/mpdf/src/Mpdf.php on line 2209 Please, pretty please, somebody fix this !!!

Update Hello Please update your plugin. Your plugin is the best, but your plugin does not support Persian and Arabic. After receiving the PDF file, a mark from the sites whose articles are in Persian ??????? Is displayed instead of letters in the received PDF. thanks a lot

Ahhhh, we had a good short run on this one. I think the developer probably is not interested/able to keep going on this one. Too bad that there wasn’t more support brought in an a commercial product developed. DO NOT DOWNLOAD. Please comment in forum if you find a working alternative. Thank you! Previous review ——– After searching for a few days for a plug-in that worked I’ve tried this one out (didn’t try it first as there is an alert that it hasn’t been tested on the past 3 versions of WordPress). It works!! We have a nice “Download this page as a PDF” + icon at the top of our terms and conditions and privacy policy pages. Just what we were looking for. Simple logo header and a footer that works, with page numbers. Can do more CSS formatting, and it also can take the formatting from your own theme. There is another product (or add-on) which I was a bit confused about, this looks like a great way to produce content from your own website, amalgamating posts together to create an e-book. **DK PDF Generator** <Auto-generates PFD with page content for download>
