TextMagic - two way

This plugin can enable SMS for GpsGate Server by using TextMagic sms service. More info about TextMagic here - https://www.textmagic.com/

Follow these steps to install :

2. Go to "Settings -> SMS"
3. Select "TextMagicProvider" in drop down.
4. "Name", can be anything.
5. "Url" should be like this:

https://www.textmagic.com/app/api?username=xxxx&password=yyyy&cmd=send&unicode=0

https://www.textmagic.com/app/api - is the server name you get for your SMS service.
username - one of the users registered in your TextMagic.
pwd - the password of that user.
unicode - set it to 1 if the message contains Unicode characters; otherwise you should set it to 0

6. Click Save

Now SMS is enabled on your server!


If you want 2-way SMS continue with those steps:

10. Click on Edit again on the TextMagic provider you just added.
11. In the field "Listener URL" you find the URL you should enter into your TextMagic account.

You can use the "Send Test SMS" feature under "Settings" in SiteAdmin.

All sent and received SMS can be monitored in the Terminal. You can also send SMS directly from the Terminal. More info:
