View Full Version : sending a page
01-08-2004, 11:47 AM
I know this may sound like a really stupid Q but how do you set up a page to be sent?
Example…Send this page to a friend. It is probably a simple task but I have never done this and it was requested that I do this.
Thanks for the time

Form with a field for the friend's email address, sender's email address and send button.
form directs to code (either java or page) that creates email with the url as contents plus some niceties, then sends it.
Is that sufficient detail?

Hi Old Maid,
I did notice that you already use Bravenet's service on your Contest form. I'm sure they offer something similar to your request. They certainly have a "Tell a Friend" facility. The free "Email forms" section is here (http://www.bravenet.com/webtools/emailfwd/index.php)... if you need any help making and/or customising the form... just let us know.

Thank you very much that will help a great deal. Unfortunately I'm not that good, I just wing it. I will check it out.

I worked on this problem for 4 days and never found a means of doing it where it worked well but I found http://www.Tellafriends.com and they offer the service in acompletely configurable format for just $19.95 USD per month and placed iton a client's site You should give it a try It is free for a brief time frame then the charges begin. But it works well. _Ossian
