Introduction

Simple User Notes is a Joomla! system plugin.

In most cases, the overly complex built-in Joomla! User Notes is an overkill if you just want to add a simple note to a user.

Simple User Notes replaces the Joomla! User Notes system with a clean & simple textarea field in the user edit view.

How to use it

Simply install it, and it is ready to use.

To add a note, go to any user in the User Manager (user edit view) and click on the tab labelled Notes and add your desired notes in the textarea field.

Note: By default Simple User Notes removes links to the built-in Joomla! User Notes system, like menu items and 'Add a Note' buttons. If you want to use both Simple User Notes and the built-in Joomla! User Notes side-by-side, you can disable this parameter within the Simple User Notes system plugin.
