  • 1 cup of salted butter
  • 3  teaspoons of vanilla

  1. Mix room teperature butter with an electric mixer.
  2. Add sugar one cup at a timeand mix
  3. Add vanilla and mix
  4. Add half and half and mix until smooth and creamy.
  5. Add the die

CMS Made Simple Javascript Email

cms, Nerd Alert! - Techy Stuff

I am constantly googling how to add kill spam javascript to emails using CMS Made Simple. I never write it down and have a terrible memory. So I decided to just post it here. Then I’ll never lose it.

In the page editor add this to your copy:
{mailto address=”” encode=”javascript”}

Note: if you are copying from here make sure to retype the quotes. Change the “me” and url for your own use. You can also add text link here by adding this to the code:
text=”click here”

This will change the linked text from an email to regular copy.
