What happens when I send a page to somebody?
At the top of each page on the site is a small link which says 'send this', so what happens if I click on this?
The 'send this' link at the top right of each page, allows users to send an email to somebody they know to inform them about information on a Gateway page.
If you click on this link, a new form will load, asking for
- an email address to send to - ensure you type the recipient's email address correctly
- your email address (this will be blank if you are not logged in - if you are logged in, your registered email address will automatically be added to the field)
- a comment field - this is where you add some comment to the recipient
Once you click on the send button, an email will be generated by the website system, addressed to your recipient address, with your address in the 'from' field.
The email subject will be the title of the page you are sending
Email text will include;
This link is sent to you from (main website address, eg www.landcarevic.net.au)
You are receiving this mail because someone read a page at Victorian Landcare Gateway and thought it might interest you.
It is sent by (your email address) with the following comment:
(your comment entered into the field)
Title of the page
Description from the page
A link directly to the relevant page
This will enable the recipient to go to the exact page by clicking on the link, but will not include all the page content. This is intended to provide simple access to information, but not send out potentially large emails.
