Why does the Print feature only print the article - not format it for printing (remove ads and sidebars, etc.) as all newspapers, mags, other websites do?
What and how are you printing that you're having this difficulty?
I printed this page, for example, and it worked out fine--there were no ads, and nothing from the right sidebar. We do have some things in the print format that aren't needed, and occasionally miss putting a print format in place for a new page type, so it may be that we've missed the print format on a certain type of page.
