Nick, this is so awesome! I have been trying to figure out how to send posts by email through Gmail to no avail. Using this information I was able to quickly cobble together this line of code:

fdsendto service="Gmail" template="https://mail.google.com/mail/?view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&to=&su={title}&body={summary-plain}%0A%0A{url}
&zx=RANDOMCRAP&shva=1&disablechatbrowsercheck=1&ui=1" /

(I had to take out the brackets and break the line, follow Nick's sample above)

Works like a charm. You have to send the summary as plain text, not HTML and you can't send the description because it makes the URL too long.

The only thing I haven't worked out is that after you send the message it returns a blank page. Maybe someone can figure out how to fix that. (Most of the URL was stolen from the GmailThis! bookmarklet http://contrapants.org/blog/2005/07/gmailthis.html)

NNW and Tumblr? Does it work similar?

I've been using this ever since i discovered SendTo folder, made my custom buttons obsolete :)



I really wish the SendTo function was available from the toolbar--so I could use it when viewing a full blog entry (which is typically how I read posts.) That way I could easily blog information I find useful.

@Christian - Found this link for NNW and Instapaper on Brent's link blog:

@Dan - Add the Instapaper bookmarklet to your IE favorites which is accessible from within FD. Sure, it's two clicks, but at least you can mark any web page with it.

@Nick - What's the trick to loading favicons for these services? Is the del.icio.us one hard-coded?

@Dan - Pressing 'S' will bring up the SendTo menu too.

@Jack: 'fraid the favicon is hard-coded - sorry!

@Glenn - That 'S' only works on newspaper views. I think Dan is talking about using it when viewing an actual webpage within FD.

@Nick - No worries - I figured someone would ask it eventually. If only FD had some built-in mechanism for retrieving, caching, and displaying Favicons so they could be used in the Send To menu... ;)

@Nick - Ah, right. I just don't think about that cause I always use FireFox to browse :)
