    Many of my users don't do social media but they do have an email address and are quite familiar with email :) Anyway they have been pestering me for some time that pages can be shared in Xenforo via all sorts of social media but there doesn't seem to be an old fashioned "email thread to friend" feature. Are we missing something? Is there an add-on for this?

    Teach your members how to select the thread URL and the post URL. The post URL is obtained by clicking on the post number. The URL can then be pasted into an email.

    That but that's clearly not as easy as a one step email to friend feature.

    You get that popup by clicking the number (#5) link at the bottom of the post.

    Hmmm, I don't have the sharing options at the bottom of mine even with the default style. What do I have to do to turn those on?

    Use the ACP search for "addthis". See if the option mentioned is enabled, though you shouldn't need a profile ID. If that's enabled, can you provide an example URL?
