Anyway to add a button, like in Blogger, to email individual posts? Yes, I have added buttons to the blog for daily emails and RSS feeds. I want something to email individual posts.
Yes and no. You can add a “Subscribe via email” button from your Feedburner feed and put it in your sidebar, but there’s nothing as far as I know for individual posts on a WP.com blog.
It can be done but the process is quite tedious. You have to have Feedburner grab your feed, then go to the Feedburner site and look at your feed there, copy the email link and post it into your post. (The exact instructions are in the forums under the sphere widget discussion.) I found it not worth the effort.
This will not necessarily help with an email post button or link, but if a user follows the directions on this page
So the answer? Direct users to that link, have them add the button, come back, then use it on the same page they are visiting. :) Getting closer! Seems very odd that wp doesn’t have this option, but it could be a security issue, or concerns about a flood of email–even if it’s not spam–being sent using their servers. I’m done searching for now. I guess I should have tried the FAQ and not limited myself to the forum. At least I’m thinking now, even if it was delayed.
