Default Send to Friend on product pages.

If anyone is interested I currently have a simple method to allow users to send products to their friends email address's with a direct link back to the product. If anyone wants such a feature get in touch with me and will work on details, as I'll provide a walk through, with code snippets. This was done with version 3.2.0, but can be done to older versions as well.

Default Send to friend

Hi,
I'd really appreciate it if you'd show me how to add this 'send to a friend' link to my site (www.nothingbutgifts.com).
Thanks a lot for your time, I really appreciate it,
Kind Regards,
Chirin.

I have a very nice javascript tell-a-friend script that works great in html pages.

I'm not sure how to make it work with the product.tpl though.

You have to put the <script></script> tag at the beginning which points the the .js file of the tell-a-friend script. The only problem is that in the product.tpl there is already a <script> line.

Is it possible to define both <script>'s?

Anyone know?

Hi SeaCoast,

You should be able to include two scripts in the head. I would probably keep them completely separate including enclosing each in it's own {literal} tags.

I actually tried that and got an "error on page".

Okie so I'm feeling nice today, hopefully the favor can be returned in some way.

First create a new file called sendtofriend.php under xcart/customer/
Code:
<?php # # sendtofriend mod by www.molotovbliss.com # require "../smarty.php"; require "../config.php"; @include "./https.php"; require "./auth.php"; require "../include/categories.php"; if($active_modules["Bestsellers"]) include "../modules/Bestsellers/bestsellers.php"; $product_info = func_select_product($productid, $user_account['membership']); $cat = $product_info["categoryid"]; $userinfo = func_userinfo($login,$login_type); if ($REQUEST_METHOD=="POST") { # phpinfo(); exit(); # # Send mail to support # $HTTP_POST_VARS["body"] = stripslashes($HTTP_POST_VARS["body"]); while (list($key,$val) = each($HTTP_POST_VARS)) $contact[$key]=$val; $fillerror = (empty($contact["firstname"]) || empty($contact["lastname"]) || empty($contact["email"]) || empty($contact["sendtoemail"])); if(!$fillerror) { $mail_smarty->assign("contact",$contact); #print $contact["sendtoemail"]; exit(); func_send_mail($contact["sendtoemail"], "mail/sendtofriend_subj.tpl", "mail/sendtofriend.tpl", $contact["email"], true); $productid = $product_info['productid']; header("Location: sendtofriend.php?section=sendtofriend&productid=$productid"); exit; } else { $userinfo = $HTTP_POST_VARS; $userinfo["login"] = $userinfo["uname"]; } } $smarty->assign("userinfo",$userinfo); $smarty->assign("fillerror",$fillerror); $smarty->assign("main","sendtofriend"); $smarty->assign("help_section",$section); $smarty->assign("location",$location); $smarty->assign("product",$product_info); $smarty->display("customer/home.tpl"); ?>

Next we need to let smarty know what template to use:
[skin1]/common_templates.tpl add the following after the
first if statement:

Code:
{elseif $main eq "sendtofriend"} {include file="customer/sendtofriend.tpl"}

Now create a new file under [skin1]/customer/sendtofriend.tpl and paste the following:

Code:
{literal} <script> function checkEmailAddress(field) { var goodEmail = field.value.match(/\b(^(\S+@).+((\.com)|(\.net)|(\.edu)|(\.mil)|(\.gov)|(\.org)|(\..{2,2}))$)\b/gi); if (goodEmail) { return true; } else { alert("E-mail address is invalid! Please correct"); field.focus(); field.select(); return false; } } </script> {/literal} {if $smarty.get.mode eq "update"} The product you have selected currently to send to your friend(s): <table><tr> <td><a href=product.php?productid={$smarty.get.productid}&cat={$cat}&page={$navigation_page}>{include file="product_thumbnail.tpl" productid=$smarty.get.productid image_x=70 product=$products[product].product}</a></td> <td>Product: <font class="red">{$product.product|escape}</font> {$product.descr|truncate:255:"...":true}</td> </tr></table> {*$lng.txt_contact_us_header*} {/if} {capture name=dialog} {if $smarty.get.mode eq "update"} <table width=100% border=0 cellspacing=0 cellpadding=2> <form action="sendtofriend.php?mode=update&section=sendtofriend&productid={$smarty.get.productid}" action=sendtofriend method=post name=sendtofriendform> <tr valign=middle> <td colspan=3 class="red">Friend Information:</td> </tr> <tr valign=middle> <td class="TableCenterCustomerForm">{$lng.lbl_email}</td> <td><font class=StarStyle>*</font></td> <td nowrap> <input type=text name=sendtoemail size=32 maxlength=255> {if $fillerror ne "" and $userinfo.sendtoemail eq ""}<font class=StarStyle>&lt;&lt;</font>{/if} </td> </tr> <!-- <tr><td colspan=3><small>Use , to seperate mutliple friends emails. example: bob@bob.com, smith@smith.com, etc.</td></tr> --> <tr><td></td></tr> <tr valign=middle> <td colspan=3 class="red">Your Information:</td> </tr> <tr valign=middle> <td class="TableCenterCustomerForm">{$lng.lbl_first_name}</td> <td><font class=StarStyle>*</font></td> <td nowrap> <input type=text name=firstname size=32 maxlength=32 value="{$userinfo.firstname}"> {if $fillerror ne "" and $userinfo.firstname eq ""}<font class=StarStyle>&lt;&lt;</font>{/if} </td> </tr> <tr valign=middle> <td class="TableCenterCustomerForm">{$lng.lbl_last_name}</td> <td><font class=StarStyle>*</font></td> <td nowrap> <input type=text name=lastname size=32 maxlength=32 value="{$userinfo.lastname}"> {if $fillerror ne "" and $userinfo.lastname eq ""}<font class=StarStyle>&lt;&lt;</font>{/if} </td> </tr> <tr valign=middle> <td class="TableCenterCustomerForm">{$lng.lbl_email}</td> <td><font class=StarStyle>*</font></td> <td nowrap> <input type=text name=email size=32 maxlength=128 value="{$userinfo.email}"> {if $fillerror ne "" and $userinfo.email eq ""}<font class=StarStyle>&lt;&lt;</font>{/if} </td> </tr> <tr valign=top> <td class="TableCenterCustomerForm">{$lng.lbl_message}</td> <td></td> <td nowrap> <textarea cols=48 rows=12 name=body>{$userinfo.body}</textarea> </td> </tr> <tr valign=middle> <td></td> <td></td> <td nowrap> {include file="buttons/submit.tpl"} </td> </tr> <input type=hidden name=usertype value="{$usertype}"> <input type=hidden name=productid value="{$smarty.get.productid}"> </form> </table> <hr size=1> Here is the template for the email being sent to your friend: <UL> Bob Smith has recommended a product to you. Look at this cool product I found, I think its what you were looking for! Checkout the product link below for more details: http://www.blazingdragon.com/store/customer/product.php?productid=3 -- orders@blazingdragon.com support@blazingdragon.com http://www.blazingdragon.com [/list] Go Back {include file="buttons/go.tpl"} {else} Your message was succesfully sent, your friend has been informed of {$product.product|escape}. Go Back {include file="buttons/go.tpl"} {/if} {/capture} {include file="dialog.tpl" title="Send to Friend(s)" content=$smarty.capture.dialog extra="width=100%"}

Edit the contents of the template to your liking. And please make a donation as this wasn't a quick easy task, I just see so many are requesting such that would be easier to deal in a mass way, I'm just asking for some help for my time. If you can't get all this working, please email me.

Forgot to mention you also need to create two other files under [skin1]/mail

First file: [skin1]/mail/sendtofriend.tpl

Code:
{$contact.firstname} {$contact.lastname} has recommended a product to you. {if $contact.body ne ""} {$contact.body} {/if} Checkout the product link below for more details: http://www.blazingdragon.com/store/customer/product.php?productid={$contact.productid} {include file="mail/signature.tpl"}

Next: [skin1]/mail/sendtofriend_subj.tpl

Code:
{config_load file="$skin_config"}{$contact.firstname} {$contact.lastname} has recommended a product to you at {$config.Company.company_name}{*$lng.eml_contact_us_subj*}

Sorry about that

NOTE: Ooops I forgot to add a / in between mail and sendtofriend.tpl and sendtofriend_subj.tpl sorry about that.
