Subject Selective PDF
Date Sun, 14 Nov 2004 09:49:20 GMT
Hi,

When the following parameters are sets true/false the effect is applied across 
the project.
<disable-print-link>true</disable-print-link>  
<disable-pdf-link>true</disable-pdf-link>
<disable-pod-link>true</disable-pod-link>
<disable-txt-link>true</disable-txt-link>
<disable-xml-link>true</disable-xml-link>

How can one specify that only specific pages are effected?

Use case: A web site produces papers, articles, reviews etc. At first each 
page has a PDF link, the home page, contact us, about us, everything has a 
PDF link.

Evaluation of the users browsing behavior shows that the only time they click 
on PDF is when in the papers and articles sections. The webmaster wants to 
save on processing time and disk space. Since users only use the PDF in the 
papers and articles sections, it is decided that all sections, with the 
exception of papers and articles will not have links to additional formats 
such as PDF.
