The updated version of DJ-Messages / Joomla internal messages extension is here. The latest version introduces two useful features:
- Compose button (choose a user to write from the compose section!),
- and user settings in the messages panel (enable/disable public profile or receivng messages).
"Compose" button feature gives the possibility to compose a message and select the message recipient. This way there's no need to use the module to display contacts.
Now all users that agreed to be communicated will be listed in the combo box and when the message is composed, the recipients can be chosen from the list.
Here's the video showing how it works:
To enable/disable this feature you need to open the DJ-Messages component in your Joomla backend, choose "options" and open the "Global settings" tab.
With the new feature, you have an access to user settings in the messages panel. You can easily enable/disable public profile and enable or disable the option of receiving messages. See the video below:
Find the "System - DJ-Messages" plugin in your Joomla backend, open it and you'll be able to choose whether those settings should be available in your messages panel.
