Email entire web page

Email entire web page

There is a great script that is used to print the entire web page page in the social icons extension. (onclick="window.print()" title="Print"). This does a great job of printing the current page. I want to email the current page either as an attachment or enclosed in an email instead of printing. Is there a script that can accomplish this. I tried to insert the email icon from the social media toolkit but it only send a link to the current page and doesn't send the page. Any help is appreciated.

you would need to use Universal Email.

for the mail body,click the lightning bolt icon next to the templates list and select the page.

How can I use an icon to trigger the email?

add a form with a hidden element and an image element type.
use the icon as the image element source.

in UE, set the trigger to the Image element button being pressed.

I'm sure I'm missing something fairly easy. Can you be more specific. I should wrap a form tag around the icon itself? I tried that but there was no option to choose the form tag or the icon as a trigger in the UE wizard. I'm not sure what to do with the hidden element? Can you be a little more specific as to the steps.

Thx.

insert -> Form -> Form to add a form tag

Insert -> Form -> Image Field to add an image field

set the source of the image field to the icon image

insert -> Form -> Hidden field to add a hidden field, forms should not be empty.

in universal email, you will be able to use the Image Field as the trigger.
