Feature request: html2header/footer

The template way is nice. But the styling differs from the rest of the page. And it is annoying to have to develop pages at different locations: the body in your own programm and the header/footer in your grabzit-account.

Can you make that we can add html as header or footer?

Just like we can send html to generate pdf, screenshot etc (php):

GrabzitClient->HtmlToXXX()

So for a header it could be like:

$html = '<div>..... <span>{page_number}/{number_of_pages}</span> ..... </div>';
GrabzitOptions->setHtmlHeader($html);

Besides the template option from Grabzit, I tried using html/css headers and footers.
It is based on 'position: fixed;' and for the best results you need to use tables or 'display: table[-xxxx];'

But it is still buggy and.... page-numbering is not working inside position-fixed (because it is only rendered once). But they are talking about how to solve it.

 

So html2header/footer would be the best solution! I do hope Grabzit will make this.

Thanks in advance, Lydia

There are limitations with PDF conversions which prevent us from doing this. However we have made a case to investigate adding more flexible styles to the templating system.
