    I'm new to this plugin and so far so good but I have two questions (which I will do as separate entries).

    What syntax do I use for an email link to invoke the contact me? Is it the link to a contact page?

    I have the same request.

    I have tried this:

    mailto:?subject=<?php the_title(); ?>&body=Check out this article! <?php the_permalink() ?>

    , but it does not add the title or the link to the body.

    Please help with this.

    @John:
    Most users just link to a contact page like: http://yourdomain.com/contact/ --> To assign the "Mail" icon just use email-prl-s24 for example...

    Providing e-mail links you can only use something like following syntax:
    mailto:?subject=Subject text&body=Test message
    That should work with most OS and mail software...

    @DragNfLy:
    PHP cannot be added directly to menu links that is beyond the purpose of the WP menu system. You can only use one of the options above: link to a WP page, or another custom link or use the simple mailto syntax.

    My plugin does nothing regarding the URLs itself it just provides CSS styling.

    I hope this helps a bit. Thanx for using or trying out my plugin!

    -Dave :)
