Child Theme print.css file

    As with the child theme’s style.css, I created a print.css and put it in the child theme folder. I want to exclude a div from the printed document, but not exclude all images. Here’s what I have in the child’s print.css file:

    Theme Name: Graphene Child
    Theme URI:
    Description: Child theme for the Graphene theme
    Author: John L. Rothra
    Author URI:
    Template: graphene
    Version: 1.0
    @import url("../graphene/print.css");

    /* =Exclude from Printed Version

    #actioncenter {

    After doing this and even after refreshing, when I do a print preview, the actioncenter div remains. Did I mess up somewhere?




    I gotta say, that was a valiant effort!! And thanks for at least trying before asking 🙂

    However, it’s not gonna work the way you’re going.

    Instead, insert this into your child theme functions.php file:

    function graphene_extra_print_styles(){
    wp_enqueue_style( 'graphene-child-light', get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/print.css' );
    add_action( 'wp_print_styles', 'graphene_extra_print_styles', 1000 );

    Then, take delete the print.css file from your graphene child directory.

    Lastly, add the

    #actioncenter {

    to your child theme style.css file.

    This should do the trick.

    Another way is to use the wp_head() action to add a link to your stylesheet. In my child theme’s functions file I have:

    add_action ('wp_head', 'printstyle' );
    function printstyle() {
    echo "<link rel='stylesheet' id='graphene-stylesheet-css' href='' type='text/css' media='print' />";

    I include that in both my bookblog and my personal blog, so they both use the same print style sheet.

    If there are only one or two items that you want to exclude from printing, you can always add them to your custom CSS option, like this:

    @media print {
    div.actioncenter {display:none;}
