I uploaded new pages using a template and at the bottom of each page is a 'contact webmaster' link. When I clicked on this to check it out, using Safari, it opens my mail program (Mail) with a new message window but does not automatically put in the email address. The link code is: mail to:"email@example.com". How can I get it to add the address after it opens the email window?
The web site is http://www.anewharvest.org
Thanks for your help.
Highlight the link, use mailto: in the link properties field followed by your real email address.
<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">Contact Webmaster</a>
That said, this won't work for everyone. Only people with an email client installed on their web device will be able to contact you this way. And you will eventually get tons of spam mail. So get a 2nd email account.
Scripted Contact forms are a much better way for people to contact you. And you get better protection from email harvesters and spam bots.
Thanks, Nancy, I am going to check into the contact script method. I don't know anything about using these but will do a web search and see what I can find.
