My developer has developed this new page on my new joomla site (www.tedpenner.com/fwdindex
). We are working on fixing what happens when you press the forward to friend button which uses the mailto component.
cwg says: in other words, we want to change the content of email sent from the site when the email icon is clicked by a user.
The unwanted result is below. I want to format the email such that all it displays is a "link" containing the title of the article and nothing more. Ideally, I'd like the sender to be able to edit the existing outgoing message containing this link as well, and be able to do this from inside the same dialog where they put the users email address.
This is an e-mail from (tedpenner.com) sent by name of fwd sender (firstname.lastname@example.org). You may also find the following link interesting: http://www.tedpenner.com/fwdindex?view=article&id=22%3Apastor-fluff
cwg says: I'm modifying the code in the mailto component's controller.php to create a prettier email. I tried 4 different sharing or email extensions to joomla and none of them had this functionality so I have resorted to changing core which I really don't like to do. Right now I'm having a hard time figuring out how to get the title of the article, and once I solve that I need to figure out how to make it into a pretty link. Any suggestions appreciated muchly.
