Solution to send article content via email (not only link)?

Post by yannandco » Sat Dec 05, 2009 8:24 am

I'm desperately looking for a way to have a "send this article" button that would send the entire article content via email and not only a link to the page.

I've been googling, searching deep into the JED... even explored the mailto/view.html.php etc etc and found no way...

Any idea ? Trick... Extension... Even core modification...

Thanks in advance

I don't think you've thought this through...

The idea is to bring traffic to your website, to see what ELSE you have.
Don't HACK the Joomla! core. Extend and Override.
Stay ON the update path.

Thanks for your point of view.
Of course the idea is to bring people on the website but:
1. It's hard to know how many people actually click on the link they get in an email.
2. If your content is good enough, people will definitely click the link I want to put at the end of the email to see what ELSE the site has to offer.
3. I also want to find a way to include a list of the latest / most popular items at the end of the message.

BTW, Drupal has this option in the basic features (send node via email).

So to get back to the question: Does anyone have a clue how I could do that ?

Hi, i am very interested in this feature aswell.
Using Joomla on my company's intranet we might need to send an article content via email, because of course we can't send a link to our intranet.
Hope someone has a solution for this, thank you.

Has anyone found a solution for this? I need my users to have this capability from our intranet, as well.

Thanks,
Mike
