Hi all,

I am trying to put an application form on the web for my local angling club site,the form looks ok when viewed on-line but when I try to print, it shows on two pages with the whole of the screen on (adds included).

Can anyone explain how I can get it to print on one sheet so it could then be sent through the post.

Thanks

you have to be clever with your CSS

Please post a screen dump or url so we can see it in action

It's basic but does the job..

you need to cover the basics regarding HTML layout and CSS and also tables

You need to look at fluid design where the content expands to fit whatever container your in whether that be a browser window or a print screen.

If you want to do this properly you need to get the basics down

Is there anywhere I can look to find this info??

I am a total "newbie" when it comes to this........

Don't be fooled by the site....I took it over from someone else

all i can do is post a table structure which may help although this is against my better jugement as i am a teacher and would prefer to start someone from the basics. I dont like giving people code to cut n paste as i think this is wrong..

ok

paste this into your page code

<table width="400" border="1">
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
<td>&nbsp;</td>
</tr>
</table>

you will now have a table which you can enter your form fields into each cell and which should print ok

if this is still confusing then you are not at a level where this would benefit you and all i can sugest is to start learning the basics

You shouldn't have to change the structure of your document.
All you need is a print stylesheet, and this is web standards basics.
