Foxbright has added settings to allow staff emails to be displayed in staff directory listings and within the contact form pop-up. These settings are accessible to web administrators only.
Note: Revealing email addresses can potentially increase the volume of SPAM sent to staff as the message no longer gets sent through the more secure contact form.
Staff Email Application Settings
Note: All application settings in the CMS are global. They will affect all relevant pages on a website. For these particular settings, all pages with a staff directory, staff list, or contact information block could be affected.
- Log into the Foxbright CMS admin panel.
- Click the Configuration tab and navigate to System > Application Settings.
Note: There are many application settings that impact a wide variety of features in the CMS. Some settings should not be changed unless the desired effect is known. Please contact support with any questions about particular application settings.
- Select Email in the categories drop-down to filter the results to email-related settings.
- Type 'Staff' in the search box to further refine the settings to just the settings related to staff directories.
The Display Email Contact Form is the only setting in this group that is on by default. This setting activates the email icon in staff directories and listings that produces the contact form when clicked. In most situations, this setting is left on even when the others are also turned on.
Note: The envelope is only visible when an email has been added to a staff member's account.
The Contact Info and Row List Display Email Inline setting will make email addresses visible in staff listing blocks set to the 'row display' and in the contact information block type.
The Contact Info and Row List Display Mail To setting adds the email address / mailto link to a popup that appears when the envelop is clicked from a Contact Info or Staff List block using the row display. The site visitor is then able to either click / copy the email address, or click the contact form link which then opens the standard contact form.
The Search and Column List Display Mail To setting adds the email address / mailto link to a popup that appears when the envelop is clicked from a Staff Directory with Search, Staff Listing using the column display, or Staff Cards. The site visitor is then able to either click / copy the email address, or click the contact form link which then opens the standard contact form.
