How to set up an email link?


Excuse my beginner question, but - working in RW/Stacks - how can I make it so that when somebody clicks on an email address given in the contact page a form appears that can be sent to the email address clicked on?

Thank you for your help!


Highlight the email address - add link - use the following mailto:someone@someaddress

the mailto: item works…but be aware that lots of people do not
have their mail client tied to an email address…so when they click on a mailto: link…it does nothing…i.e. yahoo and gmail users.
A small form is a much better choice and less likely to be hacked.

Thanks! That worked.

Thank you Joe. So, how do I set up a form that can be sent to a pre-set email address?

Are you using stacks?

Yes, I am using Stacks.

This is using FormSnap 3…all the user has to do is put in their email address…you could add whatever you wanted them to add. It goes where you tell it to go and doesn’t require them to have an email client tied to it.

Formsnap (although very good) is a bit expensive for a simple contact form - check out the Doobox option for ÂŁ6.99 UK -

That was just a sample…any of the stacks will work.

Thank you so much!

I will check that out. Thank you!
