Description Platonides 2008-04-23 23:01:07 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #8463 +++

Additionally to fixing problem with external links, it would be fine if there was a way to change CSS used in 
print version. I see this as introducing [[MediaWiki:Printable.css]] page, similar to 
[[MediaWiki:Common.css]]. Users should also have possiblility to define their own [[User:X/Printable.css]].
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-04-23 23:47:56 UTC
Note that you can put print-specific rules into the regular stylesheets with @media selectors like so:

.myclass {
  color: red;

@media print {
  .myclass {
    color: black;
    font-weight: bold;

See docs at:

However, these will only trigger for actual printing, and not onscreen when the 'printable version' link is clicked, so this may not be entirely satisfactory.
Comment 2 Platonides 2008-04-24 20:30:29 UTC
Yeah, i was expecting that "solution" to come up, and that's also the issue. I arrived to that #8463 when i was reported that a media class wasn't showed on preview (they were uing printable=yes). Although the documentation at he was reading isn't too clear.
Currently, the only way to have them working on printable would be via javascript hacks.
