    I am thinking of a future customisation that allows me to send an individual text message.

    A member record is located on the membership directory.
    Their profile is displayed and has a contact number completed.
    Is there a way to add a Send Text Message button that brings up a small free text
    box for 130 characters and a way to send a message to that member's number.

    If so this would be a really handy feature.

    OK, Judging by the overwhelming responses, (joking), I guess the answer is likely to be no or not easily. I need a gateway and having looked about its going to be more hassle than its worth.

    However what about instead of sending a text or sms message, how about sending an e-mail or at least taking the "contact email" address and having a button that opens up the e-mail client and puts the contact address in there? or even like the sms idea, does all the e-mail mechanics hidden and you just enter text in to a small text box and send? I guess its a bit like a mini form.
