If you are using JomSocial, you may want to let your users communicate with advertisers and vice versa via the built-in messaging system.
1. The setting
Go to: Component->DJ-Classifieds->Options->Views tab and scroll down to Advert view section and in "Ask seller form" setting choose: "Yes - from JomSocial."
Save the settings.
2. How it works from user's perspective
It does not change much from the user's perspective on the front end.
A user just clicks the "Contact this advertiser" button and JomSocial's box shows up.
3. How it works from advertiser's point of view
Once the message to the advertiser is sent, he can see the notification in JomSocial's top bar. Once the notification is clicked, incoming messages are visible and can be clicked to reveal the whole message.
The messages are also visible in JomSocial's Messages:
The opened message looks like this:
Once the advertiser replies to the message the conversation will remain in JomSocial.
This feature is available and works with DJ-Classifieds version 3.6.2
