Wordpress Anthologize Plugin - How to Remove Span from Copyright in PDF Export

Adrian Video Image has posted a new item, 'Wordpress Anthologize Plugin - How to Remove Span from Copyright in PDF Export'

I am playing with WordPress Anthologize plugin for writing my PDF ebook within WordPress.  I love everything about WP Anthologize except for 2 annoying issues: the messed-up “copyright” word in the front page and the Anthologize logo on every content page.

In this post. I log the steps I took to clean up the messed-up “copyright” word.

In the exported PDF ebook, there is the not-so-nice “<span>…</span>” texts around the word “Copyright”.

How to remove the  ”<span>…</span>”?

I logged in to my web host control panel.

  • Go to File Manager.
  • Select this file: /public_html/wp-content/plugins/anthologize/templates/pdf/class-pdf-anthologizer.php.
  • Select Code Editor.
  • Go to line 145…
    [$this->output->Write('', $this->api->getProjectCopyright(false, false) . ' -- ' . $year , '', false, 'C', true );]
  • Replace [$this->api->getProjectCopyright(false, false)] with [' Copyright '].  See inside square brackets [].
  • So the new line 145 is…
    [$this->output->Write('', ' Copyright ' . ' -- ' . $year , '', false, 'C', true );]

When I exported my next PDF ebook… Walla! A cleaned up front page!

I got my clue to the file from patickmj in this disussion on issues: Copyright, stylesheets.

In the next post I will blog how to replace the Anthologize logo on every page with your own logo.

After which… I am still figuring a way to add a graphic cover page to the PDF ebook.
