Need Help Configuring a New Module


I am new to Playsms, I have installed it on Ubuntu 16 LTS and have successfully configured Kannel and my SMS’s are going out fine. I need help with a Option i want to add in the compose message. We have 2 services promotional and transnational, What i want to do is, when i compose a sms there should be a drop down / option to select between promotional or transactional and then the sms would be sent through the smpp which is allocated in the service. Can anyone help me here, i am out of ideas, I have tried to add the service column in the sendsms.php but i get and error that there is no queue to send sms.

I think you will have to modify sendsms_helper function, adding sms type parameter, that you mentioned (instead of drop down menu, consider using a checkbox).

Additionally, in a generic fashion, you could put a new field on smsc records, saying what type of SMS that smsc should send (or let it hardcoded on sms routing).

Finally, you have to modify sms routing to act according to sms type.

Hi Edilson,

Can you please let me know the sms routing file, i have managed to add the sms type in the compose and route outgoing sms, all i need is the sms routing logic. Can you let me know how do i change the sms routing logic ?

Take a look at plugin/core/sendsms/fn.php
