Send e-card to multiple recipients at once
« on: December 16, 2011, 03:18:56 pm »

Dear all,

I would like to enable my visitors to send e-cards to multiple recipients at once. However, as fas as I can figure out, this is not possible at the moment. Would it be possible to get this to work?

That may be possible by modifying the ecard form, so you can enter more email addresses at once. Of course the back-end code has to be changed accordingly.

Is it suitable to display more than one email field (i.e. a separate field for each address), or do you need to enter all recipients to the same field? The amount of coding should be quite similar, but it might be difficult to assign the recipient names to the email addresses. Ideally we'd drop that field completely, so you've just to enter the email addresses.

I think the cleanest way would be to enter the email adress and recipient name in a separate box for every recipient. I imagine there would be a "+ sign" (maybe also the text, "add another recipient") to add more email-adresses+recipients.

On the other hand, it might just be as convinient if one could just drop al the email adresses in one box (separated by whatever is required, so either a "," or ";" or whatever). In this option I agree that the box for the recipients name loses its function and could be dropped.

Considering options, I would say the first option is in my opinion the best. However, if the second option is the best way to go, I`m would also be fine with it.

Sorry I'm currently too busy to create that mod for you.

No problem, thanks for the heads-up.  ;)
