With the TYPO3 extension "a7tipafriend" you offer visitors of your website an easy way to give a tip to acquaintances or friends and to recommend individual pages.
The extension developed by a7digital is functionally largely similar to the TYPO3 extension tipafriend. By using a7tipafriend, a "recommend page" button appears on every page of the website, which can be seamlessly integrated into the layout of the website. However, clicking on it does not open a form to send the tip, but the function to send an email from the user's default mail program. The subject and text of the e-mail are already pre-formulated, the user only needs to enter the e-mail address of the recipient and can send the tip directly. If required, the e-mail can of course be sent to several addressees at the same time. In addition, users have the option of customizing the e-mail and can, for example, add a comment or personalize the message.
The link to an e-mail program instead of the form reduces the risk of a written warning, as the e-mail is thus not sent from the website or domain itself, which could be classified as spam. In addition, this TYPO3 extension is completely multilingual: per language, the naming of the button as well as the subject and the text of the e-mail can be specified. If the website works with different domains, the appropriate one will be used for the specified link.
This extension developed by a7digital is not represented in the TYPO3 Extension Repository (TER) until further notice, because there is no manual for it. Nevertheless, we describe it here, because it is an illustrative example for individual programming.
