change E-mail address into "Contact Us"-form

    I am wondering what code I would need in order to achieve this:

    For example:

    if I put an "Email-address" into a Forum-thread or into a XenForo-page, it shows like this:


    Now I would like to change the appearance of this "E-mail-address", meaning it should not show the raw "E-mail address", but some default text like "Contact Us Now".

    when a user clicks onto this "E-mail address" (or onto the Link named "Contact Us Now" respectively) then it should not open up in MS-Outlook or Thunderbird, but it should open up a "pop-up window" very similar to the "pop-up window" which is showing when you click onto the "Contact Us"-Link in the footer of any XenForo-installation.

    The E-mail should be send through via a "Contact Us"-form.

    I am having 1000 XenForo-pages and each of those pages is listing a different "E-mail-address". So this would need to work for each of these 1000 "E-mail addresses".

    Please let me know if I could do this with some simple code or whether it would require an Addon.

    Many thanks!

    That will require custom development.

    could you please move this thread into "Add-on Requests" ?

    I need to add a quite important thing:

    All of these 1000 "E-mail addresses" are actually already displayed via the "XF default Custom Fields".

    So this Addon-request would merely be a "feature extension" of "XF default Custom Fields".
