    This question i not related to xenforo.

    Is there a way to print a webpage (as firefox or chrome does), in pdf, but server side ? Because browsers are printing a page exactly as it's shown up to the visitor, with complex CSS stuff etc...

    Best regards.

    You can grab the page source. save it as html then user wkhtmltopdf to save the contents as PDF.

    allewreK and gfc like this.

    That is what I was thinking about, but the problem with that kind of class is that it's not rendering complex CSS, only normals stuffs like borders and backgrounds.

    You'll have to ask in the google groups about that but i've used it to generate a 14-18 pages PDF's with, styles, css, google maps and images. it worked great.
