Goal

Allow a user to send the contents of a page by email.

A working example is on http://www.brambring.nl, it's in dutch, no worries the link is not that hard to find.

Solution

Put the file as TellAFriend.php in your local directory and add

include_once("local/TellAFriend.php");

to your local.php.

Provide a link with action=mailform

<a href='\$PageUrl?action=mailform'>Email page</a>

For example into the wikicmds section, or

ThisPage:?action=mailform

as wikitext

Requires 0.6.0 Attach:TellAFriend.1.3.txt

Comments & Bugs

  • If a user refreshes the page (after submitting) the mail will be send again (and again...). If someone has a nice solution for this....
    • How about adding a cookie? Like the one i added in SimplePageCounter --keith
  • There are no stylesheets included in the email (yet), so the email might look less nice as your web-page does.
