email to friend

  • Hello everyone! I’m loving WP2.0 ~

    Curious about one thing, is there a plugin of sorts which would allow reads to eaisly “email post to a friend”?

    Interested in adding this functionality to my site if possible!

    Thanks for any pointers!

  • I believe WP-Email would do what you’re looking for. 🙂

    Thanks! I was able to get it installed successfully.

    I have one question though about implementation.
    Currently wp-email appears OK in my plugins option in my admin panel, and it is enabled.

    Next I need to edit index.php in my theme.

    I am looking at the doc here.

    It says that I need to find this line in my theme’s index.php. I am using the POOL them.

    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    Actually I can’t find this line anywhere in my index.php…

    Closest I find is this.

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

    So I went ahead and added this under it, as instructed.

    <?php if(function_exists('wp_email')) { email_link(); } ?>

    After changing the email settings to use sendmail instead of PHP (php didn’t work for me), everything is working fine.

    I did a little more tweaking with index.php to get the EMAIL THIS comment in-line with the Comments link as well, and getting it the same small font, and now everything looks great.


    Check it out!

    Thanks for the help everyone!

    Hey this is working out well, but I noticed someone has sent a abused this and sent a spamish email through this system.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    Anyways to prevent it?

    the email does log what it send, can I know it send a post to another email or?

    I noticed in the logs, that the email feature was used by some randomly entered email address to send an email to some other randomly entered email address.

    I wanted to know what could be done to stop this sort of abuse.

    hmm, from the looks of it, do u think it is generated email by bots or human typing.


    okie, maybe I should type in a verification image or something in the next version.

    Yeah that might help! Not a big problem though, only had one incident so far! Though if it got larger, I’m sure my ISP would send me a warning.

    lol, roger that.

    Just wanted to say this is a badass plugin and express my thanks to GamerZ for it. Works a charm.

    thanks for the compliments =D

    Hi GamerZ,

    Thanks so much for the plugin! My site is http://www.shawnconrad.com

    Just a few small issues:

    1) The “Email This Post” link is showing up at the top of my article. How can I have it appear at the end?

    2) The link only shows up from the Home page but not when I click from different categories. How can I fix that?

    3) Lastly, when you click the link, the form is dark (taking only the dark element of my theme). How do I fix that?

    Once again I’m excited about using your plugin. THANKS MUCH.

    thanks I answered you in my email =)
