Contact advertiser via JomSocial

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 the user's perspective

It does not change much from the user's perspective on the front end.

A user clicks the " Contact this advertiser " button, and JomSocial's box shows up.


3. How it works from advertiser's point of view

Once the advertiser's message 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.
