    I'm looking to have a "Email this post" link in my blog--so somebody surfing can email the contents of a post to somebody else with just a couple clicks and filling out the email addresses (theirs plus a recipient).

    All sorts of big websites / news sites have this, so I thought somebody would have done it for WP by now, but so far I've not been able to find it. I may go and write it myself, if nobody has beat me to it. If I do write one, would anybody else like to use it?

    I curently have this option on my site. I am using a modified version of the wp-email plugin. One big drawback of this plugin however is that It is not technicly a plugin. In order to get it to work I had to play around with some mod_rewrite rules and hardcode some stuff into my templates. However if you are comfortable with coding then this is the way I sugest you go.

    Well, I've downloaded wp-email, and I'll take a look at it later. Since it looks like fairly major tweaks to the WP core, I think I'll wait until after I upgrade to WP 2.0 and then try adding it....I'll do quite a bit to avoid doing merges.

    Are there any other choices that are more of just a plugin? I'm quite happy to mess with templates, but I would rather avoid hacking the other WP files if I can.

    The lates stable version is 1.5.2. See the Download on the top of this page.
    2.0-RC1 is in the testing phase, not recommended for live sites. If you want to test it, visit the 2.0 Beta section of the forum. Please, remember, it is for testing only, if you upgrade to 2.0 there is no way back and there is no support for it.
