WP-EMail Installation Instructions

Open wp-content/plugins folder


  1. Folder: email

Activate WP-EMail plugin


  • You MAY Need To Re-Generate The Permalink.
  • Options -> Permalinks Options -> Update Permalink Structure

Open wp-content/themes/<YOUR THEME NAME>/index.php


<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>

Add Anywhere Below It:

<?php if(function_exists('wp_email')) { email_link(); } ?>


  • The first value you pass in is the text for emailing post.
  • The second value is the text for emailing page.
  • Default: email_link('EMail This Post', 'EMail This Page')
  • If you want to use an image/icon instead, replace email_link(); with email_link_image();
  • If you want to use a popup window, replace email_link(); with email_popup(); for normal link or email_popup_image(); for image/icon.
  • If you are having templates problem, I recommend you to use the popup window option instead.

Alternative placing of "Email this post"

Open wp-content/themes/<YOUR THEME NAME>/post.php

Decide if link goes at header or footer of each post


<?php if(function_exists('wp_email')) { email_link(); } ?>

Log into http://www.yourdomain.com/wordpressdirectory/wp-admin/

Click "E-Mail"

  • Modify your settings accordingly.


  • If the mailserver/type settings are not correct, WP-Email will NOT function.
