    Error log to look for would be the Apache error log and/or the PHP error log (if this is separate on your server). I can't tell you where to look for the log on your server, because the location depends on the server setup. Maybe your support... view reply
  • Version 2.3.3 -  When I delete any video, I can't add it back in again. I get a list of red error messages that is a duplicate of what should have been listed in the fields, but are not listed, only listed as many red error messages....
    • Note; These are Off Server videos.

      I've narrowed it down. Doesn't appear to be any problem after all. It appears to be localized to my installation.  As I upgraded elgg along the way from 1.+ to the most the most current elgg 2.3.4, and from the original iZap Video to your IZap iionly Video version, there were a number of videos that must not have converted properly and thus did not work. So, I would delete them and reload them from YouTube. But they would not reload, as I explained above. But this only happens with the specific videos that were already loaded and seemingly corrupt and I'd try to reload. In summary, this problem only happens with already installed YouTube videos from the past and current reloads. Therefore there are a number of YouTube videos that I will never be able to use. 

      Note, there is no problem if a I load a YouTube video, delete it, and load it again. This works fine. The problem is only with old videos. 

      And, I've only got a few dozen of these videos, so I'm not going to worry about it, unless you can think of some easy fix. 

    • Thought you might like to take a look at the error message I get when I try to reload one of these problem videos. This error message is a list of all the fields that should have loaded with the video, but did not. There was no other message or indication why the error occurred, just this...

    • Problem with the original version of iZAP Videos has been / is that the handling of offserver videos was done by their API server. It was impossible for me to know what they did there. Therefore, I had made my fork based on an older version of iZAP Videos (3.7) that still had the code for processing offserver videos at least mostly included in the plugin itself. So, any offserver videos added with the original version of iZAP Videos have likely some differences with regards to the corresponding database entries. This might result in an incomplete deletion of the video entries. Still, I can't say why it should fail to add these videos again.

      Had you deleted the plugin folder of the original iZAP Videos before switching to my fork? If not, you might try if it helps to re-install my fork (disable iZAP Videos, then delete the plugin folder before copying the latest version again on the server and then re-activating it). Then you might also check the plugin settings again if everything is configured alright including the API key.

    Hi everyone. I have some troubles with a CSS. I design a simple html with a css file using <link href="mycdd.css" media="all" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />. Everything works perfectly...
      • The server's caches
      • The browser's caches
      • CDN cache (e.g. Cloudflare etc)

      There's one trick:

      1. Go to Administration -> Advanced settings
      2. Uncheck Use simple cache Use system cache Compress JavaScript and Compress CSS
      3. Save
      4. Now flush the caches and check your site
      5. Turn on all settings again if all works

      If don't work then see on above tips about caches.

    • And keep in your mind that you plugin must be at the bottom after all another plugins on the Plugins' page and your extended view (elgg_extend_view('elgg.css', 'plugin_folder_name/mycdd.css');) must be at the bottom after all another extended views in start.php of your plugin.

      In the last case you can use also:

      elgg_extend_view('elgg.css', 'plugin_folder_name/mycdd.css', 1000);

      w/o moving your code

    • With

      elgg_extend_view('elgg.css', 'plugin_folder_name/mycdd.css', 1000);

      you would need to place mycdd.css at

      mod/plugin_name/views/default/plugin_name/mycdd.css

      The paths in elgg_extend_view are always relative to the views/default folders (either within plugins or of Elgg core).

      After changes, flush the Elgg cache (or keep caching disabled during developing).
