Emerge Users & Development Group :: Blog :: Messaging on site

July 25, 2008

On site, something caught your eye & want to fire off a message without retreating to your email & address book? Or maybe you want to get in touch with all of the members of your group (rather confusingly called communities in Elgg)? You can use Elgg's onsite messaging features.

You can find the Send a Message to ... link on the right-hand sidebar of every individual or community. Be aware that Messages sent to communities go to every member, so please think before you spam! 

You can view and also send messages by clicking on the messages link in your personal navigation bar - the one that runs across the page under the Emerge logo. Select a user or community from the drop down menu on the compose page. You'll notice that only people you've added as friends and communities you've already joined are included on this list - basically your on site address book - so you may want to start adding some more friends :)

Official documentation can be found over at the Elgg wiki, although you can always message me or open a helpdesk ticket if you run in to problems.
