Get the mailto link without the mailto
# December 17, 2009 at 5:33 pm
I’m working on a plugin for my company’s site. They have address on their site that go to outlook when clicked. I have my plugin concept I just need to grab the email from the link is clicked.
I’m not trying to protect the email address I want to grab it from the href:
psdo code:Code://give all mail links the class mailbox
//get the email link from the href
//open new windows with the email link sent via an address (i have this part figured out)
What i’m trying to do now is get the email link:
<a href="mailto: email@example.com">email me</a>
I want to pull out the "firstname.lastname@example.org". I will never know what the email address is going to be so i cant search for a specific email either.
Look like i need to get the enter href (mailto: email@example.com) then remove the mailto: part. Once i have that I can send it to a php driven form using http://firstname.lastname@example.org.# December 18, 2009 at 10:43 am
I just got that part about 10min ago. Now i’m trying to to figure out how to strip the "mailto: " from it:Code:$(function()
var url = $(this).attr(‘href’);
this is my test to see when i get the url whittled down to just the email address. so far it shows "mailto: email@example.com"
