[resolved] Where are the use instructions for this plugin? (5 posts)

    I installed this plug-in two years ago for an infrequently used page. I have just discovered that it stopped working sometime in the last six months. Also, I cannot find the usage instructions so I cannot figure out how it was working before. I know that it worked before and there are logs indicating email successfully sent. The installation page says,

    >> Refer To Usage For Further Instructions

    But where are they? Please provide a link.

    I am looking for instructions so that I can getti the email page / form working once again. Right now the problem is that there is no link or button or anything shown on the e-card page to send the mail. The page is intended to send an e-card to someone with a nice picture.

    I don't agree that this is resolved. The use instructions for the plugin do not seem to be on that page or on any of the links leading from the page. I can see how to install and configure it but not how to set up a page to use the plug-in. Maybe you can point to exactly the page and section that basic use is described in. I see links and sections for

    I think that you actually have to add source code to your theme to make this work. That explains why it broke on my site. It was guess work figuring that out from the documentation. I think that it would help to spell that out clearly.

    I have added the code back and it is working now.

    Yeah that is the FAQ "How do I add this to my theme?"

    I agree it is confusion, I will port it back to the installation tab
