Tell a friend

I have a piece of javascript that works as a tell a friend link, but I would prefer it to be applied to a graphic button I’ve created. As I’m a bit of a novice where this is concerned how can I adapt / add it to a graphic

Select the graphic, open the Hyperlink dialog and add this to the field on the External tab:

javascript:location.href=‘mailto:?SUBJECT=’+document.title+’&BODY=’+escape(location.href)

That should be it.

Thanks Joe, there must be something wrong in the code, as it doesn’t work on my PC at all and on my Mac using FF it doesn’t put a url link in the body of the message.

Back to the drawing board…

Try this:

javascript:window.location='mailto:?subject=’+this.document.title+’&body=’+this.location

I did write a little Action that places a text field and a button on he page allowing the visitor to type the email address of the person they want to send the link to. You can specify the text on the button and the message in the email through the Action palette. Let me know if you want it.
