View Full Version : How to "Email / Recommend this website"

Does anyone have a script for the "recommend-our-site-to-your-friend" kind of box which can enable users to submit email directly to their friends?

that would best be done using a server side language... does your host support any?

Several @ hotscripts.com (http://hotscripts.com). If your host doesn't support asp/cgi/php, search there under remotely hosted.:D

They're all about the same. Take your pick.

this is going into PHP now but how would I send that as an e-mail? (putting it into the mail()?!)

well... you'd make a form that sends the info to the php page you want to send the script and then use something like this...
var $message = "Hi ".$HTTP_POST_VARS['to_name'].",/n/n".$HTTP_POST_VARS['from_name']." has recomended this site to you... http://www.example.com";
mail($HTTP_POST_VARS['to_email'], 'Check out this site', $message, 'From: '.$HTTP_POST_VARS['from_email']);
written "on the fly"... hope it works... :thumbsup:
