couple config questions - events & messages

7 years 6 months ago #197537 by vptechnology
Hi. Sorry if it's been answered already but I am curious about:

1. Wysiwyg editor on New Event in any group's event tab. When a regular registered joomla user creates an event, the wysiwyg editor doesn't show but when I am (super admin) create one it does. I do have Editor set to Wysiwyg in Integrations->Events->Schedule.

Is there a setting somewhere I need to enable to have wysiwyg for all users?


2. When a member of the group sends email to other members via 'Message Users' link on the left side, the email goes out with From address set to user's email.

Is there anyway to change that to be another one, like global joomla's From email setting? Also, is there a way to customize the subject of that email?

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate the help.

Sounds like a permissions problem with your editor. Are you using JCE? If so you need to configure it as necessary in backend. Please also keep in mind individual users can have different editors via the Params field (edit a user from backend and see if it's anything, but Default). Also ensure the editor plugin within Joomla > Extensions > Plugin Manager is public.

2. When a member of the group sends email to other members via 'Message Users' link on the left side, the email goes out with From address set to user's email.

Nope, it's hardcoded to send from the user. You'd need to edit source code to change what email address it sends from, which I can't help you with as we don't support core edits.

Thanks Kyle. Much appreciated. For #1, you were absolutely right. JCE was not enabled for Registered group. Thanks for the pointer.

For #2, I take it you don't have any plans in the near term to add configurable Subject and From address to the group's config, right.

Not likely. Doesn't seam necessary as it's meant to be sent from the one sending the message.

Hi Kyle. Thanks. Even though it's meant to go from that person, here's a very concrete problem that happens (not all the time but to several of our users). User 'user@hiscompany.com' sends the email to the group. The email actually goes out from 'myadmin@mywebsite.com' which makes the From address/domain in the header different than the actual server domain address that mailed it. @hiscompany does not have any SPF records to designate @mywebsite as the valid sender on behalf of that user. That causes some issues with Spam blockers, particularly with our corporate clients whose email servers think it's spam.

It would be nice to have From address match the actual sender domain name and maybe have the first line of the email say "User ABC has sent you an email via .....". Maybe a future feature. A customizable subject would be huge too as we have a number of groups and they all have the main Joomla title instead of specific group name.

Thanks anyway. Great work guys.
