View Full Version : Sending messages?

05-14-2011, 03:45 PM
I don't like using sites like Facebook because i think there's so little privacy. So i made up a list of all my friends using HTML and CSS. But could someone tell me if it is possible for me to send someone a message on my friends list just by clicking on their name and without having to go to the likes of Yahoo and Gmail?

You have a few options including:

1) using mailto: in a <form> that opens up the default email client on your pc. You could use javascript to set the email address for the mailto: to be the text in the link you clicked.

2) if using php, you could use php's mail() function to send a plain text and/or html email containing a form's contents to however many recipients (within limits) you like.

Thanks for taking the time out to reply bullant. Shall have to do some revision on mailto's and have a good look at learning PHP.
