    Tell a friend

    Hi all, has anyone come across a professional looking way to have the 'tell a friend' thing on a website, but not anything to do with javascript.

    Any help appreciated.

    Why not do it with javascript? You can put the javascript in an external file and you won't have that code junking up your page.

    "tell a friend" and "professional" is somewhat of an oxymoron, isn't it?

    use a server-side language like php, coldfusion, asp, etc.

    Yep, it is a bit of a contradiction ;-)

    I didn't know that it would be possible in PHP ? Can we meet on the PHP section ?

    There are plenty of tell a friend PHP scripts at http://php.resourceindex.com/Complet...ecommend_Site/

    You could even just use a simple form, which sends the results to an e-mail address which has an auto responder attached. Set the form up so the friends e-mail address is in the recipient field of the form results, and the auto responder will send the e-mail to the friend.

    How would you even write one in Javascript?
