  1. Printer friendly

    Bill, the printer friendly button does not seem to work on the Recap fileds.  Only part of the text prints.  However, based upon what I read, your efforts far out shine the effort made by most of the aldermen (except 2).  Here we go again, kicking the can down the street!  Very disappointing council vote.


    1. Printable version of live coverage

      Hi Mike,

      You’re correct that the "Printer-friendly version" link, which works for normal stories, doesn’t work well with the live coverage events.

      However, there is a work-around.

      Open the event to read it. Then look in the very bottom right corner of the application window for the orange RSS icon (the symbol looks like radiating radio waves).

      Click on that, and choose the popup link that matches the title of the event (not the author’s name).

      If you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox, it will open a new window with a printable display of the full text of the live coverage.

      In Firefox 3.6 the entries are listed in chronological order (earliest first). In Internet Explorer 8.0 the entries appear in reverse chronological order (most recent first).

      In Google Chrome you get a very ugly display not suitable for printing.

      — Bill
