Joomla! version: 3.4.1
BF Auction Plus: 1.8.3

First of all thanks for the replies vouchers # 782 and # 784. It was very helpful.
I read the coupon # 780 - Notification mail to the administrator, but I do not know where to modify the codesuch that to send all data on the winner of the auction (email, name) to the site administrator.
I must say that I'm a beginner in programming.
Unfortunately I pressed my head against solve this inconvenience so please give me a quickly answer.

Thank you very much and I`m waiting for your answer !

PS: When I do all the translation of the application in Romanian I`ll send you the file to integrate into a future version of the application.

Hi Iambu,
I've added a new feature to v1.9.0 which adds a "send copy to" field to all the email templates. Simply put in the administrator's email address in this field, and they will get a copy of all this type of email.

Let me know how you go.

Sounds good about the Romanian language file.

Hi Tim,
I made some changes in the original template of Auction BF Plus 1.8.3. and I think that if I apply the new update 1.9.0 all the changes will return the template to its original design and I do not want this to happen.
So, my request is, if you can tell me, what I must to change and where (what files) for I can benefit from this functionality of the application (receiving informations on the auction winner to administrator`s email) ?

Thank you in advance !

Hi Iambu,
Ideally any changes you make to a view should be done via a template override, so that they are not lost when you update the software.

If you have hacked the source code of the component, you could try replacing the following files with the new versions. But before you do anything, make sure you have a good backup just in case :) Also I'd recommend applying this to a dev/staging copy to make sure nothing unexpected breaks.
The important files changed in the commit for v1.9.0 are:


You would also need to add the sendTo field to the jos_bfauction_plus_email table (where jos_ is your table prefix)
ALTER TABLE `jos_bfauction_plus_email` ADD `sendTo` text;

Hope this helps.
