Import contacts from web mails and other social networks v0.3

Release Notes

This module wraps the OpenInviter PHP library and provides a friendly interface for Elgg installations to add the import capability. We have exposed only a handful of supported plugins in the form since these were known to work at the time of implementation as well as were considered important. You can tweak the code to add more plugin support.

This module was developed and is used at for the purpose of allowing users to invite their friends from other social networks as well as by importing their webmail address books.

Right now, the message sent is hardcoded in but one could provide a textbox to collect message from the user to tack onto the default message.

Feel free to report bugs or requests to

NOTE: OpenInviter Requirements: Your server will need to have PHP5 installed with DOMDocument support and either cURL or WGET.

Make sure you delete any old installation before you copy this over... there were problems with some of the unused modules like Twitter, etc.

For version 0.3:
- Updated to the latest OpenInviter libraries
- Added sub-menu under the Friends using Two page layout (just like invitefriends)
