How to create a reference to a simplified Confluence page

Hi All!

We are successfully using Confluence 3.5 as a documentation for our software.

I am going to add a "help" button onto our web app which opens a new browser window. There I would like to show a corresponding page from the existing documentation. This works perfectly. However I get a left sidebar, top and bottom toolbars as well. Is there any way to refer to an existing page in a way that shows me a central payload only?

You can use the 'printable' display mode to achieve this. The 'cleanest' way to achieve this would be the Linking Plugin: {link-to:print|page=My Page|popup=true}Help{link-to} Alternately, if you're using raw HTML, just add '?display=printable' to the URL. As a bonus, you can customize the layout for this display in the Layout section of both Space and Global admin. Enjoy!

Thanks David!

It works! Minor fix: use decorator=printable instead of display=printable in the URL.
