D-Mack RecommendFriends is a component to allow your users to recommend your website to their friends. 

Starting from Version 3.0 of this component, the Joomla! Update function is officially integrated! Just go to the Extension Manager >>> Update tab and click the 'Find Updates' button to see if there are any updates for the component. Updating will reset the component - including any changes made.

It can send multiple emails, number defined in Admin, with the friends name, and copy the Administrator and/or the User. It also incorporates Captcha Security to help prevent spam and the option to send Content-Type:text/html MIME format! ALL text for the entire component, front end and back, can be edited on-line in the Admin area of the site. And the component is XHTML 1.0 Transitional valid!

This component uses standard Joomla! JFactory Mailer functions - which should work if your website's email settings are correctly configured for your website server (i.e. Sendmail, PHPMailer, SMTP, etc). 

GNU/GPL License - You are ABSOLUTELY ALLOWED to modify any of the files to your liking. The only thing I ask is to let me know if you have improved the script so I might also improve the script and re-release it to the community. Thanks!

If you have any suggestions or have found a bug, please contact us by mail: info at dmackmedia.com

Program Requirements

The only requirements for D-Mack RecommendFriends is for the Captcha functionality. In order to use the Captcha option, the server your site is running on must have the GD and FreeType Support ENABLED. The RecommendFriends component does a check for you - and tells you the status of the GD and FreeType Support on your server - in the Captcha portion of the Admin Configuration. You can also check this in Joomla! Admin by clicking the 'Help >>> System Info' button on the top Admin menu. Go to the PHP Info tab and scroll down to the GD section. If both are enabled, you should be good to go!

**PLEASE NOTE** These are requirements ONLY if you wish to utilize the CAPTCHA functionalty. The component will still work if you do not have these installed on your server (you just need to disable the CAPTCHA option).
