Recently I had to build a Joomla based website, the applied template was quite ok except the problem that the good looking HTML background was taken into account for the print page. Which is quite bad, a few searches later I got first useable results on adding a new Stylesheet with the
media="print" attribute set. Unfortunately this only works if the user presses the print Button within his browser, it’s not working for the Joomla build-in print preparation. As the standard templates for Joomla seem to avoid that problem there needs to be a solution, finally I found that entry: Customizing Print Popup on docs.joomla.org which revealed the magic behind the problem. You need to add/modify the
Component.php file within your template.
Hope this helps the one or other, and hopefully will pop over the retired solutions for Joomla earlier than 1.5.
