    • Plugins that are supposed to work on Elgg 3.0 should also work on Elgg 3.1-3.3.

      As for my plugins (Tidypics, iZAP Videos, Elggchat etc.) I had no time yet to upgrade all of them to Elgg 3. The plugins I released a 3.0 version of should work on Elgg 3.0-3.3 (but I had not even time to test on Elgg 3.1 or newer!). The plugins I did not make a 3.0 release yet are very likely NOT working on Elgg 3 at all without changes.

      For Tidypics and iZAP Videos Rohit made pull requests on github which updates and they should work on Elgg 3. You could try it with these version for the time being (download from https://github.com/rohit1290/tidypics/archive/master.zip and https://github.com/rohit1290/izap_videos/archive/master.zip and renaming the plugin folders after unzipping to match the plugins' names). I hope they work without issues but I could not try them myself. I DO have the intention to update all my plugins for Elgg 3 as soon as have the time to do so and I will very likely build up on the work of Rohit then to make the work go faster.

      As for the other plugins of mine I'm afraid I can't offer a working solution for Elgg 3 for the time being.

      The hype*-plugins are not longer officially supported. Ismayil released updated versions of his plugins for Elgg 3 though before he stopped his development efforts. You can find the new releases only on github though. For hypeWall see https://github.com/hypeJunction/Elgg3-hypeWall/releases.

    The comment data is saved in the database always in the same manner regardless of the type of input. It's the input form where you would have to make the change, i.e. change the field from a text/plaintext input field to an longtext input field.... view reply

    If mod_rewrite is now installed and enabled there still might be one or two modifications in your server configuration necessary. Firstly, the rewrite rules defined by Elgg in its .htaccess file can only be working if you allow their use in the... view reply

  • VSR added a new discussion topic Comments in Longtext??? in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Is there somewhere that comments can be changed from "plaintext" to "longtext" so it can load CKeditor?
    • The comment data is saved in the database always in the same manner regardless of the type of input. It's the input form where you would have to make the change, i.e. change the field from a text/plaintext input field to an longtext input field. The input form view you need to change / override depends on which field you want to change.

    Thanks RvR.  I didn't have command line access so I simply installed another elgg and copied the changes I had made from the old site to the new.  Since I had no users this was simple and took very little time.  The next time... view reply

    If you want to use the existing data and DB then you must use the duplicate installation. But it's not a fresh installation. If you made changes in the files (plugins but not /vendor) only and loosing all data and DB isn't important for... view reply

    Thanks RvR.  That seems to be a significant PIA.  Since I don't have any users at this point I wonder about it being easier to start a fresh install and copy over the changes I made to the first installation. Will it work to have... view reply

    Thanks for this RvR.  Looks like they are recommending Composer. I think that requires command line access and I am not sure I have that.  I have elgg now in public html, what would happen if I uploaded the zipped 3.3.1 to the... view reply
