Wikipedia is a web based diamond mine of knowledge and information. All the content is written by individual experts on specific topics. Many of us wonder how to take a hard copy of some article on Wikipedia, How to print Wikipedia article without images and extra stuff.
One can press Ctrl+P to print the article. Use printable version of Wikipedia, use page setup and thats it, but what if you dont want the additional stuff like images, links etc. Why to waste time paper and ink for unneeded stuff.
Here are few solutions to print the exact thing you want. It will have no images and no hyperlinks. Lexisum.com provides printer friendly environment of Wikipedia articles with few clicks. Just type the keyword and you will find all the useful articles there. There is a little issue with Lexisum.com too, It will print only the summary of a Wikipedia article and not the complete article. Many people are interested in reading summary only.
As Lexisum has some limitations i took few more minutes to search for another alternate with some better options, and finally i got the one. PrintWhatYouLike.com is another alternative and quite advance comparing to Lexisum. PrintWhatYouLike.com allows you to select the portions you want to print in wikipedia article. You can easily remove the images etc from printable version. You can change the fonts and can set the page margins to get the print on single page.
My search for printing on wikipedia didn’t stop here, so i went forward to look for more options, and i found one firefox plugin named Aardvark FireFox plugin Firefox users have many options to print Wikipedia articles without any extra stuff with this plugin. I personally like Lexisum.
