    We use getIconURL('master'); on our sites. It works for us. Look at this example (page source).
  • ura soul commented on the plugin [Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X: Tidypics]
    @RvR- I did check that first, yes - however, the outputted URL isn't one that can be used in a metatag - it isn't a full url with a file extension on the end. Also, on a tangent, I just clicked 'upload images' while viewing an...

    Look at getIconURL()
  • ura soul commented on the plugin [Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X: Tidypics]
    I see, ok. What would be the most straight forward way to access a full url for a tidypics thumbnail? It's been a while since I've coded much relating to files in Elgg! ;) I need the full URL to put into meta tags in the head for social...

    Tidypics was already there long before the current Filestore API functions of Elgg were added (I think in Elgg 2.2) and it still uses its own functions to store and retrieve the image files. So, you can't use the Elgg API functions unfortunately.
  • ura soul commented on the plugin [Elgg 1.5-1.12 & 2.X: Tidypics]
    Hey! I just noticed that I am unable to get a result from elgg_get_inline_url for tidypics images - I am using the latest version on elgg 2.3. Any idea why that is? I get no data returned from the function even though a thumbnail file does exist....

    For example, how can I find a keyword "abcd" in User "Xyz"'s blogs, if possible in a specified time, eg, March 2010 or April 2010 to May 2011, for example? The point is to whether a certain user (say a poet) has used a...

    • "(people who take other people’s GPL plugins / themes and re-sell them at the lowest price possible)"

      This applies to PHP itself. Rasmus who started it hardly has any money compared to the dirty monopolistic Zuckerberg or for that matter compared to many other persons who thrive on PHP. Even if every site just contributed $1 per season to Rasmus ... ? Same about Email protocol inventor, the world does not even remember him, whether he lives or dies, it was such an excellent open thing compared to Whatsapp (now gobbled up by FB)

      Overall the usage and adoption of php scripts has died as the super giant monopoly FB goes unabated, no antitrust motion against them, nothing and the world population like a slave follow Fb. The like of youngsters who created Elgg, Drupa, Wordpress will NO longer be seen, in the past 10 years no one has created scripts like Elgg, Wordpress, Drupal. In fact many wonderful scripts have died, and the most young of the younger generation have no idea of these, or true internet in an app based world (why apps, why to go to Google or Apple to download apps instead of the open internet?) and many companies have Fb-only web address - shocking.

      In this scenario, participation in Elgg has dwindled. There are at least 3 to 4 popular social scripts available which on appearance looks better, they have modern status box (compared to Elgg) for example a few on Evanto priced at around $25 to $50, Humhub which has both free and enterprise edition, and Peepso (Wordpress based) which is around $200 - only paid model but doing "good business". (also EasySocial based on Joomla). But still overall usage of such social scripts has reduced drastically as we, the slave population, spend more and more time in Fb and Instagram etc. I wish the true internet returned (Hubzilla, Diaspora etc) but its not happening.

      The excellent persons and coders/contributors enlisted in https://elgg.org/about/team - only a few or may be just two or three are still available for the community. In fact most of them are lost without any trace. I miss them very much and probably they have to work out the economy part of their personal lives. In such scenario what is to be done ?

      Another thing to consider is  few drastic showstoppers for Elgg 3 (some or probably fixed in core or by Iionly, example lack of useful side bar with rss, bookmark links, too wide activity page etc) and lack of updates of many plugins. And old Elgg sites dying due to unavailability of php 5 older versions in webhosting sites on the issues of "security". Many php5 based scripts are just dying because of this baseless (according to me) fear on security. These sites were typically niche sites or hobby sites or sites with limited users BUT offered much traction to any project as the creators of these sites regularly contributed/participated in community discussions and kept looking the source-script-site busy and full, if you understand what I mean. If Elgg offered (on its own or based on any big hosting company internally) php 5 all versions hosting, many Elgg (as well as old Drupl, Wp etc) sites could get revived and it can be a revenue earner.

      "Elgg should show users a donation page not before but right after the user starts downloading an Elgg project or plugins. This simple change should give those users who want to donate to make a decision while waiting for download"

      I agree and at the same time I think we will not get substantial numbers of persons or enough money in light of all the above. My 2 cents posted in somewhat hurry and my regards to all.
