[resolved] [Plugin: WP-EMail] Display WP-Email plugin at the bottom of the post? (10 posts)

    Instead of at the top?

    Most people won't email a post until they've finished reading it, and they finish at the bottom of the post and I think that would be a good place to put your excellent wp-email plugin.

    Right now it's currently placed at the top of the post and most people won't email a post until they've read it.

    once they've read it they may forget there's an email option at the top of the post.

    Wouldn't it be better to have it default at the bottom like the share this post type plugins so more readers and bloggers would use this?

    sharethis automatically put the code within the post. I prefer to let my user decide where to place it.

    It is even easier if I have to make it embedded below the post, but I chose to give priority to customization.

    You can put the email php code below wherever you want and it will archive the same effect. You just need to trial an error.

    I moved it and the email this showed up at the bottom where i want it, but when i tried clicking on it i got this error message
    "Internal Server Error
    The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request."

    the upside is doing that i pasted the wp-print underneath that code that i couldn't get to work and it finally did. Here's the code, any suggestions?

    <div class="storycontent">
    <?php the_content(__('(more...)')); ?>
    
    <?php if(function_exists('wp_email')) { email_link(); } ?>
    
    <li></li>
    
    <?php if(function_exists('wp_print')) { print_link(); } ?>
    
    </div>
    
    <div class="feedback">
    <?php wp_link_pages(); ?>

    The place looks normal to me. The Internal Server Error doesn't seem to say it is a PHP error or what. check your error log

    how do i find the error log?

    I just tried to open up my blog and all my blog posts were gone. so i took out all the code for wp-email and wp-print.

    You can find the error log in logs folder of your FTP (it differs from host to host, so I can;t tell you exactly where is it)

    Did you try to disable all plugins except WP-Print and WP-Email, it maybe caused by plugin conflicts too.

    Are you using any caching plugins?

    i use godaddy so unfortunately they refuse to show me the log files. thanks for the suggestions Lester, but I eventually just ended up just using the share me plugin which also does email.
