How to compose a new message in DJ-Messages

DJ-Messages allows us to create and send messages to a single user, multiple recipients or a chosen user group.
There are two ways to create and send a new message. In the backend of the website or from the front page.

Creating messages in the backend

This option is available to the site administrator /the user who has access to the DJ-Messages control panel.
Open the DJ-Messages component and go to "Messages." 

Click "New" and you will see this view: 

  1. Recipient - select one or more recipients
  2. User groups - select the user group you want to define as recipients
  3. Subject - enter a subject here
  4. Message - enter a message here
  5. Attachments - you can attach a file here
Click the "Send" button to send a message.
Recipient and User groups options can be combined. It means you can choose recipients and a Joomla user group, which will increase the number of recipients, and both options are not mutually exclusive.

Creating messages on the frontpage

To be able to create a new message from the front side and send it, you must have the DJ-Messages component configured on your site.

To be able to create a new message, you must configure and enable the "DJ-Messages Notifications" module or create a new item menu "Messages". You will find a "Compose" button there, purposed for composing a new message.

User groups field is available for the administrator (with super admin privileges) only. The normal user can send messages including recipient, subject, message content, and attachments.
