Article tool is a plugin for Joomla that allows you to add functions its your articles and K2 article.
Among the possibilities that the plugin offers we can choose to show on each item buttons to print, download (PRO version), share and send email to the article.
Article tools can show two different buttons for social sharing (facebook, twitter, linkedin, pinterest, google plus), the classic one and the one with the counter, or a comic book next to the button with the number of times the article was shared.
The great advantage of article tool is that it shows the social buttons fully customizable graphically, in contrast to those who are bound standardized by the manufacturer.
These icons will be placed at the top or bottom of the article and the download function has two options: to create a pdf that is displayed in the browser or to create a pdf ready to be downloaded.
Printing functionality and PDF creation for download and not, are among the most requested features from anyone who runs a publishing site or blog.
These two buttons: pdf download and print, no special configurations for each item, just activate the plugin that will do everything.
The only setting more to download pdf, and print, are the style sheets, you can in fact change the display of the content (font, color, background, line spacing, etc. ...)
Article tool also allows you to customize the display in print or download.
This plugin is compatible with K2.
For any problem or suggestion please do not hesitate to contact me!
Note: as of today 21/06/2022 the K2 component is compatible only for Joomla 3 so I could not test it on Joomla 4
