    It's simple enough to have a browser pop up a new email with mail to:, however, I have jumped ship into a totally iframed served site, and am interested in getting an email script that will imbed either the url of the iframe or the iframe itself, both would be preferrable. I appreciate any help. thanks!

    Are you looking for a PHP script? It could easily be customized and run the the iframe. I love this one because all you have to do is set your email in the file and have the from post to it.

    That's close, form to email seems to be a simple type in who you want to email to and comment form.

    Though I'm really looking for something that will capture the page the user is looking at and at least the page url (served as an iframe) so it could be any number of different pages. In turn they can go back to their email or send me an email of the page they were looking at.

    perhaps the trick is to make the iframe within a form, and that could be sent. hmmm

    The could be achieved by writing up some PHP code. My basic idea is for each page on your site to have its own link to the contact page.. like /contact.php?ref=drawing5. Drawing5 could then be retrieved using GET in PHP and included in the form as a hidden value.

    Edit: I should add that you can't really send a frame in a form.. BTW, is there any particular reason you're using frames? They're SEO suicide.

    I like the iframes for a lot of reasons. Having to change each static page is horendous, secondly, learning php & Sql is going to be a long haul project that I will not be getting into any time soon, so I try and make due.

    I still have a static site I've finished, and will be finalizing the iframe version once I get some of these bugs worked out.

    thanks for the help!
