    Hello, I want to create a button to place inside my loop which when clicked sends me an email with the post title attached to it.
    My blog posts consists of embedded youtube videos, I want this button for use as a "report bad link" button for a situation where the linked video has been removed off youtube. Ideally I would like to have this button linked to an image to instead of the generic "form" button look. Any ideas guys?

    Hmmm...usually something is better than nothing, and when I'm stuck I prefer wrong answers to none... perhaps you can find a plugin that sends you email?

    ideas of the top of my head...
    something like this
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/send-e-mail/
    modified,
    or you can subscribe to your own posts with subscribe2 plugin...but then you'd have to modify it or use something else

    or I'd try to google search or "wordpress.org/plugins" search a plugin that allows you to send an email of the post to yourself and but then I don't know what to do at the button part.

    Perhaps somebody at plugins would know?

    Thank you very much, I didn't want to have to use a plugin but it seems like my best bet, I was able to recreate a text link that does the job nicely, but it relies on opening outlook to send an email with pre-defined information. Not sure what it would do on a computer with no trace of outlook installed on it.. hrmmm
