Gmail Custom Share Button

0 votes
823 views

Sometime back I have published the article for custom social share button, now we can extend it for the gmail also.

Motive of the share button

The gmail share button should be flexible enough to have our own design.
There should no load of external JS files for your custom share button, to avoid the delay in page loading.
Should be Easy for integration.

Sample Buttons (you can change them as per your need)

Sample Code

<a id="ref_gm" href="https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?view=cm&fs=1&to&
su='.$title.'&
body='.$gmail_body.'&
ui=2&tf=1&pli=1?"
onclick="javascript:window.open(this.href, '', 'menubar=no,toolbar=no,resizable=no,scrollbars=no,height=400,width=600');return false;">
<img src="<Your Image>" alt="Gmail Share Button"/></a>

Above code is a working code and running at QueryHome.
