Could I use the "Send to Friend" extension to send a different page that the web page with the insertion form included?

Yes, you can. All you need is to edit the file TE_SendToAFriend.js, in the first line: var sentToAFriendURL=''; Changing the line between '', like: var sentToAFriendURL='http://www.topdreamweaverextensions.com/'; Where 'http://www.topdreamweaverextensions.com/' is the web page that you want send.

My web server has some custom specifications for sending emails. Can I configure this product to accept these custom specifications?

Yes, this product can be configured for all PHP environments; it supports simple SMTP, SMTP with authentication, the PHP "mail" function and the standard "sendmail".

If your web hosting required to use an external SMTP server to deliver emails or requires authentication, you can configure it at the SendToAFriend.php file, lines #9-#16:

// If your SMTP server is not the local server, then change it here
define('SMTP_SERVER', 'localhost');

// If your SMTP server requires authentication then set this parameter to true
// and put your username and password here
define('SMTP_USERNAME', 'your_username');
define('SMTP_PASSWORD', 'your_password');

For authentication, set the value to true instead false, ex:


The hosting provider has blocked my web page because the "Send To Friend" form has been used to send Spam emails. What can I do?

We have added a new version of the "Send To Friend" to the product distribution. The new version requires to enter a security code (Captcha) before sending the emails.

The use of the security code avoids that malicious users could send Spams mails from your form.

If you don't have in the copy of your product a MXP file named TE_SendToAFriend_Captcha.mxp, then use your download link to get the new version of the product.

Install the TE_SendToAFriend_Captcha.mxp version using the Adobe Extension Manager and replace the form in your web page using the new "Send To Friend".

I get this error when trying to install: "Extension requires more recent version of Macromedia Extension Manager". What I should do ?

If you have more than one extension manager installed in your computer, then open the version related to the Dreamweaver version where you want to install the extension and open the .MXP file from there.

I haven't received the email with the download link or I lost the download link. How can I get it?

When I preview my web page atfer I get this message in my Internet Explorer,"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted...". What is the problem?

If you are testing your page directly from your local hard disk in IE 7, this message appears:

"To help protect your security, Internet Explorer has restricted this webpage from running scripts or ActiveX controls that could access your computer. Click here for options."

In IE 7 this message appears when you test a web page that contains a script or Flash item directly form your local hard disk. When you upload your page to an online web server that message does not appear.

The address from a web server must start with http:// or https:// . On the other hand if the address start with C:\ or file:// then you are testing it from your local hard disk.

Just upload your web page to your web site and you will see that the error disappears.

I'm getting this error message "Is not possible to create data structure.". What's happening?

Please, change the "Links relative to" setting in the site configuration options (Dreamweaver 8 or later).

If this setting does not solve the problem, then follow these steps:

  1. Restart Dreamweaver
  2. Be sure that you have a local web site defined in Dreamweaver
  3. Open the page where you want to insert the extension(this page must be saved previously into your web site)
  4. Try to insert the extension again

Note about sales taxes.

No sales tax is charged when you purchase via PayPal. You can order via PayPal with a credit card even if you do not have a PayPal account. PayPal's status as a financial institution exempts PayPal orders from sales tax. CodePeople will be the retailer of record. CodePeople is based in Switzerland and does not have any US sales tax obligations.

I'm getting this error: "TypeError: THE_DOM has no properties" . There is a workaround?

Please follow these steps:
  1. Check if  you have defined a local web site at dreamweaver.
  2. Check if you have saved the page into your local web site.
  3. If you are using Dreamweaver templates, check if your templates allow an "Editable Region" in the <HEAD> section of the HTML code.
  4. Mark the "Use case-sensitive link checking" option in the site settings and recreate your site cache.
  5. After these checks, please restart your Dreamweaver and try again.
If the above actions don’t solve the problem, then probably the reason is a wrong HTML structure in the page that you are trying to use the product, in this case, please check the page’s HTML structure and if you cannot find the problem then contact our support service.
