    Hi, I have been using pdfmyurl as a free service for about six months. Now I have subscribed and I cannot pdf my posts in the same way as before. Originally the pdf’s contained only the post text and images and none of the sidebar content. How can I adjust the settings to reproduce this in the new set-up login page?
    I don’t want to copy the messages and logos like Facebook and Twitter from the sidebars onto my pdfs. Please help

      Hi Roy,

      Reply is also in over email – the new conversion engine is dealing with more content than before and therefore you should handle with this in your CMS (maybe you’re using WordPress or JoomLa?) or try switching off JavaScript in the settings

    Thanks for your good service to convert any URL into PDF.
    When I try to convert “” ; there is no text in the output PDF , it seems the service has some problems with texts from right-to-left languages and CODEPAGES like Arabic and Persian.

      Hi Kamra,

      Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately this is because of the JavaScript that BBC is running on that page. We believe it’s the cookie allowance plugin. If you turn that off you’ll notice that the Arabic shows up correctly. Please check other Persian sites to see for yourself.

    Dear PDFmyURL,

    I would like to copy 260 subpages from a website as they appear live, when you call up the applicable site.

    Is there a way that PDFmyURL picks up the subpages automatically or must I past the URL for each site?


    1. pdfmyurl Post author

      Hi Ulrich,

      Yes, you can use the batch API with a sitemap. If the site has no sitemap yet, you can find how to create one easily and in the future we’ll incorporate a way to do that as well.

      Good luck!

    I just did the pdf conversion but I get a large DEMO word across everything.

    What do I need to do to get rid of the demo? I thought the trial version was free and would work?


    1. pdfmyurl Post author

      Hi Neal,

      Thank you for trying out the trial version – it is indeed free and is fully functional, but you will get a watermark over the PDFs. Everything else is exactly like with a paid license.
