Portable Document Format (PDF) file is a format that is independent of application software, hardware as well as Operating systems. PDF files can be opened in Adobe Acrobat Reader/Writer as well in most modern browsers like Chrome, Safari, Firefox via extensions/plug-ins. So when planning to share a WordPress webpage or blog, we can consider an option to export WordPress posts to PDF format. This approach provides two benefits i.e. it preserves the information for a longer period as well as fidelity of the content is not compromised.
