    Insert page field - Email

    I'm sure this is easy but I cant get the email to display the way i want it.

    I have inserted the email page field added my "insert before field" text but how do I make it a mailto hyperlink with the email item in the mailto part?

    Hi Stephen

    Could you perhaps post the code you're trying to get working? Think that will make it more easy to suggest solutions :)

    Thanks Jan...here is the code.

    <umbraco:Item field="locationEmail" insertTextBefore="<b>Email: </b>" runat="server"></umbraco:Item>

    Will this need to become a marco to allow me to make this an email link...

    Hi Stephen,

    Can use some quick and dirty inline XSLT,

    <b>Email: </b> <umbraco:item Field="locationEmail" runat="server" recursive="true" Xslt="concat('<a href=&quot;mailto:', {0} , '&quot;>', {0} , '</a>')" XsltDisableEscaping="true" />

    Or use an inline razor macro,

    Tom

    Here's the Razor version;

    <umbraco:macro language="razor" runat="server">

    <b>Email: </b><a href="mailto:@Model.locationEmail">@Model.locationEmail</a>

    </umbraco:macro>

     

    If you need it to look for the email recursively use @Model._locationEmail,
    The xslt example above looks recusively by the recusive="true" property.
    Razor is only available in Umbraco 4.6 upwards,

    Sorry for the slow reply guys, appreciate all your responses...going for the Razor option, just need to hide the "Email:" if there is no email entered.

    Many thanks,

    Hi Stephen,

    You can use razor's HasValue() check;

     

    <umbraco:macro language="razor" runat="server">

    @{

    if (Model.HasValue("locationEmail"))

    {

    <b>Email: </b><a href="mailto:@Model.locationEmail">@Model.locationEmail</a>

    }

    }

    </umbraco:macro>

    I find this cheat sheet really helpful as a quick razor reference; http://our.umbraco.org/projects/developer-tools/razor-dynamicnode-cheat-sheet

    Many Thanks,

    Tom

    Hi Stephen,

    Are you using the code in an external razor script file?

    The code I posted can be used inline on a master page - so you don't need to create an umbraco macro, or macro script file to run it,

    Many Thanks,

    Tom

    Sorry to hijack this post, but I have a related question as I have a similar solution, where I insert our staff email addresses on a site via a macro.

    My question is if the email is spambot searchable?

    @using umbraco.MacroEngines

    @{

      var nodeId = PageData[0];

      var staff = Library.NodeById(nodeId);

    }

    <div class="staff">

      <div class="name">@staff.Name</div>

      <div class="jobtitle">@staff.title</div>

      <div class="phone">Tlf: @staff.telephone</div>

      <div class="email">Email: <a href="mailto:@staff.email">@staff.email</a></div>

    </div>

     

    Mark.

    Hi Mark,

    It's my understanding that any email in plain text can be read by a spambot. Some spam bots can do patten recognition on email addresses rendered as images but these tend to be more expensive to construct / opperate and are therefore much rarer.

    If you are worried about the emails being sniffed, I would consider using ImageGen to render them out as images.

    Something like:

    <img src="/[email protected]&Font=Arial&FontColor=f1f7f0&FontSize=600&FontStyle=bold" />

    The image gen module could be in the umbraco folder in you implementation. Also, refer to the image gen docs here for more info on fonts etc http://www.percipientstudios.com/imagegen/documentation.aspx

    Many Thanks,

    Tom
