There are a LOT of issues when emailing people HTML pages. here's a
1) there's no email program that's fully compatible with all features
available on web browsers
2) exceptionally inconsistent support for css across mail clients
(In the US you need a CANSPAM compliant unsubscribe footer & or your
legal mailing address -- not sure about France! Check your country's
That said, I wouldn't make this a PITS item. What you need is either
to be a brave programmer, find someone with similar interest who is a
programmer, beg, or hire someone.
It's a terrific idea. I'm trying to think 1) how I would do it 2)
whether I'm interested in doing it 3) whether I have the time to do it.
I want to tackle the shopping cart issue. So that means I have less
time for considering emailing a wikipage. But I am interested in how
it would/could be done and certainly available if anyone is
interested in writing a recipe for it...
I have an idea --
IF -- big if -- someone could grab a target page's output and stick
it into an $output variable....from a different page -- Patrick??
If so, you could use the new FASTData recipe to grab the variable and
toss the information into an email....?? Caveman will have to talk
about that I think.
