Plugin Directory

WP-EMail

Allows people to recommend/send your WordPress blog's post/page to a friend.

You can either install it automatically from the WordPress admin, or do it manually:

  1. Upload the whole wp-email directory into your plugins folder(/wp-content/plugins/)
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Once installed take the following steps to set it up:

  1. Under E-Mail Settings, modify the setting Method Used To Send E-Mail accordingly. If the method is wrong, no email will get sent.
  2. You Need To Re-Generate The Permalink (WP-Admin -> Settings -> Permalinks -> Save Changes)
  3. Open wp-content/themes/<YOUR THEME NAME>/index.php (You may place it in single.php, post.php, page.php, etc also)
    • Find: <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    • Simply add this code inside the loop where you want the email link to display: if(function_exists('email_link')) { email_link(); }

If you DO NOT want the email link to appear in every post/page, DO NOT use the code above. Just use the shortcode by typing [email_link] into the selected post/page content and it will embed the email link into that post/page only.
