Hi Jojo Developers

Is there any message system plugin or something similar out of the box?

If not, I've tried using the form plugin with no sucess. I read every documentation i could find and even debugged an install problem ;). I know it is stated as "unstable for production" but I'm going to use it in a basic way.

Once I create the form etc in admin section, how can I show this form for members to fill and system to send the mail.

Also what advice would you give if I would like to add a "Inbox" kind of page with read/reply/delete messages.

Thank You in advance...

Jojo rules!!!!!! :)

No, we don't have any messaging system built into a standard plugin.

The forms plugin isn't really designed for this - it's more designed as a form builder app for form submissions going to the site owner - rather than between users. Though it should be possible to mod it using the filters / hooks in the plugin.

If I were wanting to do a 'private messaging' system I would probably create a new plugin from scratch. The forms plugin is quite abstracted to allow the addition of new fields without having to change any code. With a PM system, it's unlikely you will need to change the fields much once it's working.

We developed a PM system using Jojo, under contract so we can't release it, but it can be done.
Mike built it from scratch - it's not really something you could (or should) try to adapt from another plugin.

@tom: Just for info, how much would a plugin like that cost?
