Documentation - Macros and Macro Scripting - E-Mail A Web Page
This document explains how to create a macro that will e-mail the current web page.
Defining the Macro
You can add macros directly in K-Meleon. Select Edit - Preferences - Configs and then select the tab labeled "Macros". Scroll to the bottom of the file and add the following code:
Click on the "OK" button to save your changes. A dialog will appear asking you if you wish to save your changes to "macros.cfg". Select "Yes" to save the changes. Now that we've defined the macro, we need to have a way to execute it.
This should show you a link Email Link, and when you go to a page and select this from File menu, you will be able to email link of that page and have the page title as the subject of that email.
Adding a Menu Entry for the Macro
When creating macros, you have the option of binding the macro to a toolbar button, accelerator keys, creating a menu entry or all three. In this example, we'll just create a menu entry for our macro. Again, select Edit - Preferences - Configs and then select the tab labeled "Menus". We'll be adding our macro to the "File" menu. You can actually add it to any menu you wish or create a whole new menu for your macro. It's your choice!
Under the "&File" entry, add the following code somewhere in the list of menu entries:
macros(emaillink);This adds a menu entry to your File menu titled "Email &Link". When you select "File", this entry will appear in the menu. When you select the entry, you will be able to email a link to that page and have the page title as the subject of that email. Of course, you need to have an e-mail application configured on your computer to facilitate that e-mail process.
Click on the "OK" button to save your changes. A dialog will appear asking you if you wish to save your changes to "menus.cfg". Select "Yes" to save the changes.
Exit K-Meleon and restart the browser (if you have the symbiotic loader installed, you may have to re-boot). Select the File menu and you should see your new entry in the list of menu items. When you are ready to e-mail a web page, select the item from the list.
