A customer just brought up an interesting point: since the watermark width (“cell width” in TCPDF terms) is determined by the PDF page width, won’t a line of text be a “little short” (limited) if the watermark is rotated diagonally? Since it would take a lot of math with a few variables (page size, mainly)… continue reading?
That title probably caught your attention because… when do we ever share passwords? Actually, we do, a lot. Website administrators often have to share passwords with users and customers who have just been issued a password. Generally that is done automatically, without the administrator ever having any idea what password was shared. You know, for… continue reading?
WaterWoo and EDDiMark can add QR codes to PDFs dynamically upon download request via WooCommerce. This is because both plugins use TCPDF to write PDF content, and TCPDF allows for barcode creation. Though this blog post might also be helpful for someone just trying to figure out how to write a barcode with TCPDF and… continue reading?
When it’s impossible to have customers in the store and clients face-to-face, how can money be made? One fairly obvious, and earnest-enough, method is by selling your reputation on paper: gift certificates and gift vouchers. For many businesses there is a real opportunity for income here. And many (future) loyal customers understand that purchasing gift certificates is a way to support businesses right now. They know that by making these purchases, when the Great Shutdown begins to heal, their community might look closer to how it did in 2019.
This month there is loads more news than usual, and not much of it is easy to bear. Here in California we’ve been ordered to stay home now for more than a week. I’ve distracted myself by typing lots and lots code. It’s about time I addressed your ongoing request for a PDF watermarker that… continue reading?
The SetaPDF library which PDF Stamper is built on allows quite a bit of font customization to be done. More on SetaPDF and font manipulations. For the meantime, a quick tutorial on how to get other fonts beyond the three packaged with the plugin (Times, Courier, and Helvetica). Start by finding a TrueType font (.ttf)… continue reading?
All three new Stamper plugins (EDDiStamper, PDF Stamper, and Download Monitor Stamper) come with the three standard PDF fonts: Helvetica, Times New Roman, and Courier. Not much to get excited about, I know. Whereas EDDiMark and WaterWoo (plugins based on TCPDF, not SetaPDF-Stamper) have built-in font uploaders with more instant gratification, the integration with Seta… continue reading?
If you are using EDDiMark to stamp PDFs, and especially if you are using the “redirect” download method* with Easy Digital Downloads, files will collect on your server. We do not assume responsibility for deleting these files for several reasons, and so you may want to set up automatic deletion using a cron job (a… continue reading?
A customer recently pointed out that serving watermarked files on a NGINX server needs to be done a little differently. He is using Kinsta hosting. I also confirmed the issue on a local NGINX server. By default, WaterWoo and EDDiMark try to place a PDF in the /tmp folder while watermarking takes place, then serve… continue reading?
Every once in a while we get a report that the Gift Wrapper plugin “doesn’t work.” Putting aside the fact that it’s just not enough information to help anything, oftentimes we find it’s not the plugin that is “broken.” It’s the theme. More and more we are finding that premium Wordpress themes (with WooCommerce “support”)… continue reading?
