Hi Aidan,

Assuming you are using a text widget, just type "contact me" where you want it in the text, highlight it with the cursor, click on the "Insert Link" button on the toolbar (10th icon from the left, looks like a little piece of a chain) then click E-Mail on the pop-up and just type in your email address.

Regards,
Wayne

Thank you, it helped a lot. I tested it and was able to get as far as an e-mail window (trying to e-mail myself). I didn't know what to fill in for the 'server' ingoing and outgoing e-mail...can you help again?

You need not bother with any of that unless you intend to mail yourself often;)

if you set it up just like he said above it will work. The issue you are running into is related to your mail server on your computer. Sounds like its not configured for outgoing mail. Its not a problem if its not because even if you are on a web site where you wish to email someone but can't because your email server is not up and running. The easiest thing for you to do is to right click the contact me or email button and then (copy email address) and then paste the info you copied into your email outgoing address.

What you are talking about and worrying over is not a problem on the synthesite page. It simply sounds like something for you to contact your internet provider and get the needed info and settings then you can make the connection possible.

What is the link to that page and I will test it for you

Mr. Ed,
I really am new at this; did you see my response to you leaving the link I think you are looking for? I reposted it below:

Sorry Mary I've been a bit preoccupied trying to put my site out to pasture so to speak and let it be on it's own for a while without me.

I did see that your link did have your email attached correctly so I am sure that it will work properly. I gotta laugh because my computer isn't configured either for outgoing emails through links and I never use them anyway but I will try it later on the laptop... Great start on your site. Looks like you have a lot to share and a site such as yours is a great way to release that which is inside.

Can I get another womans point of view on my site?

Thank you too KiranZ, once I am sure I actually have a working 'Contact me' link, I will probably copy the form you have on your web site (which looks really interesting, I haven;t had time to read through most of it yet but I hope to soon).

I saw your site's "Contact Me" link. It is awesome! Mine is just a hyperlink that opens up your e-mail program. Can you show me how to make yours like that? Thanks

Hi mE

Here is the direct link to Wufoos Q&A page. It should help you along with creating and implementing your form. They have provided many video tutorials to walk you through the entire process.
