Thank you for such a nice simple messaging component.

I have found a but that
needs to be fixed.

The list of users also includes users who have not actived
yet and also users that have been blocked.

Can you please fix this?

I am getting "Error: The Inbox of one of the recipients is
But the inbox contains only one message, where can I increase the
capacity of inbox.
Sander (SAdministrator) 10-04-2009 16:54:03

The capacity can be changed by administrators in the administration panel. See
the manual for more information (there is a link on the left).

Is there anyway we can send a message to multiple users?
Sander (SAdministrator) 10-04-2009 16:50:33

Yes, just seperate usernames with a comma, this way: user1, user2, user3
Messages to Admin only
Petra ( 23-03-2009 16:08:10

Hi, I would like to enable sending the messages to admin only. I do not want to
let chat the users between them... Is it possible? Thank you for reply. Petra
Sander (SAdministrator) 23-03-2009 20:28:49

Yes, you can go to the menu and set "Let users send messages to users"
to false (see the manual)

phone networks in africa
prince ( 01-11-2008 01:25:35

is it possible to send messages to phone numbers in africa or just restricted to
america and europe.
Sander (SAdministrator) 01-11-2008 16:01:07

This component is made to send messages to other users of the website, through
the website. It doesn't send messages to phones. But you can use this component
in Africa, if that was your question.
real name : username
don ( 08-07-2008 08:30:24

Joomla! made a huge mistake IMHO manditorily putting real names in article
bylines. I have recoded that so the username appears by default, then if anyone
wants to put real name out to the public, they can do that by writing in an
"alias." I suggest you make the default to username and let people opt
for giving out their real name. Great work you are doing!
Sander (SAdministrator) 08-07-2008 11:23:49


I'm going to change this behaviour in the next version. Meanwhile you
can look in the manual in the "Settings for Administrators" part to
change it manually.
Sander (SAdministrator) 01-11-2008 16:02:24

This has been added to the newest release, now the name suggestion just suggests
usernames unless you change the settings in the administrators section.

Can't Install
Wazer07 ( 23-06-2008 19:25:31

ok I'm having trouble installing the component and module and it fails to upload
successfully - I do however have a PMS already installed, so would this effect
it from uploading????
re: Can't Install
Sander (SAdministrator) 26-06-2008 18:27:17

I think having another PMS installed shouldn't change anything, so I think
that's not the problem. Have you tried to install another component? What error
message is returned by Joomla?
Not bad but...
DB ( 07-06-2008 19:10:28

Not bad, but when you want to send a message it shows BOTH the list of the
User's real names AND the list of the Usernames used.

Some people choose a
Username not their real name because they want some privacy, if you get my
RE: Not bad but...
Sander (SAdministrator) 08-06-2008 13:08:13

I've chosen this method because the real name is shown anyway for all
components. For example, if you write an article, the author is the real name,
not the username. Using the real name in the messaging program makes it easier
if someone wants to send you a comment about an article.

It is possible and
very easy to change this, but it requires a change in the code. If you want, I
can send you the corrected file.
DB ( 12-06-2008 00:11:58

Yes please, I would appreciate it. I loved your module and would have used it
without this feature.
Sander (SAdministrator) 12-06-2008 17:40:58

I've added a part on how to change this in the link: m_content&view=article&i
d=81&Itemid=308 in the "Settings for Administrators" part.
Sander (SAdministrator) 01-11-2008 16:03:09

This has been added to the newest release, now the name suggestion just
usernames unless you change the settings in the administrators section.
