Email to Filtered Users : XIUS

At JoomlaXi we are constantly implementing new ideas to add in the development process. We're proud to welcome a new innovation- XiUS Email. It is a new functionality in JoomlaXi User Search through which it is possible to send Email to selected users.

Brief Introduction of XiUS Email:
Over the last couple of weeks, we introduced several new capabilities in XiUS to fulfill searching needs and expectation. Here we come with  a new feature by which user can not only search users but can also send mail to filtered users. This mailing to users feature is named as "XiUS Email". XiUS Email is the most progressive and easy adaptive emailing functionality. By using XiUS Email, User can send mails to searched user. For example, If you want to send emails to users than you simply need to search users accordingly and you can easily send Emails to them individually in selected users as well as to whole group.


Note: In this release, Only Admin can send the email to users through front-end.
#1 : This is a plugin, it will work same way as other XIUS plugin works (you need to create information of XIUSEmail type, to use this functionality)

#2 : Finding User's Email-id : Plugin need to get user's Email-id, it can be done by
  • First way to Create information which can tell user's Email-id.  This information can be created by Joomla plugin.
  • Second way for JomSocial Users, If you have profile field for Email-id and wants to send mail at this id than create information for Email-id by jsfield plugin.
#3 : Once above 2 steps are done, we will get 3 email icons at front end. These are:
<ul style="color: #333333; font-family: Tahoma, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 15.800000190734863px;"><li><span style="text-decoration: underline">Email to
