    • It's quite impossible to see which plugins you actually have installed on your site by just copy+pasting the plugin page output. Without the layout the plugin names are quite lost within the other link texts that are of no use here. If you want to make it easier for people to help you, edit the list and leave just a list of the plugin names.

      Using 3rd party plugin not updated for Elgg 3 will cause problems. If it's not a very, very simple plugin it will very likely NOT work without problems on Elgg 3 and might even cause other problems on your site you might not connect with this plugin in the first place.

      My suggestion: test with ALL 3rd party plugins disabled. ALL of them! Does the problem remain or do you see the profile images correctly displayed for all users? Try to narrow down the possible cause of the problem by activating only one or two plugins at a time and not all at once. Otherwise it's impossible to figure out what's wrong if you don't have some experience.

      In any case it might help to look into the server logs to see if any errors are to be found that might explain what the problem might be.

      The image size you've set for Tidypics has nothing to do with profile images. It's for the Tidypics images alone. The image size seems really quite large. If you think you need the original image saved at this size I would suggest to use the ImageMagick command line tools for creation of the thumbnails. The GD php extension would require a massive amount of RAM for an 8kx8k image - too much probably.

      But Tidypics is a plugin not yet updated for Elgg 3. The version you find here will not work without problems for sure!! There's a version available at https://github.com/rohit1290/tidypics that might work better (maybe without any issues even) on Elgg 3. But I had no time yet to test it out and merge it into my version and make a new release for Elgg 3.

      The hype* plugins for Elgg 3 are only to be found on github. I hope you have used these versions only.

      Profile image thumbnail creation should work also with either the GD php extension (default) or the Imagick php extension (if available on the server). If the php memory_limit is set too small the thumbnail creation might fail with the GD extension used which might also explain the profiles without a proper image. If you have the Imagick php extension installed (or can get it installed) it would help because the memory required for resizing would be much lower (and also for Tidpics the Imagick php extension could be selected in case the ImageMagick command line tools are not available on the server).

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to reply on this one.  I did get the tidypics from github as well as the hype plugins.  I did find there was one hype plugin that didn't install correctly but was able to make a little change to get it to install.  

      I am going to go with the imagick option or at least give it a try.  The only reason I made the image options so huge was to see if increasing them would resolve the problem.  I could easily live with smaller images so the imagick option hopefully will help deal with that.  

      Iionly, you really rock by updating and creating the plugins that really matter for our sites and thank you for pointing me in the right direction.  Always happy to help test out the modules you maintain if you ever need it.  

      Thanks!

    • I believe you can do it with additional plugins or custom configuration in your visual editor (CKeditor or TinyMCE).

      I've never used such features but you can learn more on:

      Plugins for TinyMCE:

    • I think the usage of templates or rather setting up the templates within the editor plugin might require some coding (experience) in any case. I never tried the creation of templates with Tinymce (and no experience with CKeditor at all) so I can't tell how easy/hard it is to achieve to get some kind of templates/macros added for users to make use of.

      Both CKeditor and Tinymce support keyboard shortcuts. Maybe not all functionality can be achieved with keyboard shortcuts alone. It might rather be an alternative input method instead of using mouse to select toolbar items but it might help for some often used options at least. I think both the CKeditor and Tinymce sites have a list of supported keyboard shortcuts.

      Within my Extended Tinymce plugin I have added a date/time toolbar option to allow for entering the date and/or time in some typical formats within a posting. The Extended Tinymce plugin is an alternative to the bundled CKeditor plugin of Elgg where I added a few more options to be available by default.
