    I can't really help you with the decision here as I have no idea what kind of data you want to display. If this data is changing so frequently, does it even make sense to display it? Does it make sense to display all of it or wouid it enough... view reply

    Grüße euch Bin erst gestern über Elgg gestolpert und wurschtel mich da jetzt durch. Dieses Wallet Garden wäre genau das, was ich brauche, aber das Plugin ist schon uralt.  Was kann ich tun? Grüße Widrir

    Hi guys im beginner, on ELGG,  When i try to upload a image to my profile, came this message "FATAL ERROR" I made a video for you guys see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KAgi-G99ys8 Anyone know what happens? First of...

    • I see in the video that you are trying to upload a quite large image (high image resolution) to be used as profile image. The resolution is much larger than it would be used for the profile image. Elgg creates some resized versions of the uploaded image to be used as thumbnails on the various pages of an Elgg site. My guess is that the image resizing causes the error on your site because the memory required for this taks is higher than the memory allowed to be used.

      By default Elgg uses the GD php extension for creating the thumbnails. Unfortunately, the GD extension requires VERY MUCH memory if the original image has a large image resolution.

      You could do the following:

      • Increase the memory_limit set in the hidden file .htaccess in the install directory of your site if your server has enough memory for it (default size is 64M; you could increase it for example to 128M),
      • Try using a smaller image. It makes no sense to upload a large image because Elgg will not use the high resolution anyway and display only smaller images everywhere
      • If you are using Elgg 3 AND you have the imagick PHP extension installed on your server (or can install it), you can uncomment the line $CONFIG->image_processor = 'imagick'; in the file elgg-config/settings.php. Instead of the GD library the imagick image library will be used for creation of image thumbnails. In this case the memory requires is much lower.
  • A security release for Elgg 2.3 & 3.3 is now available

    I first used Elgg back in 2012 or so when it was still being readily developed for, and recently (this week) have come around to it again for a project I am working on. I am happy to see it has a somewhat recent version, and some recently updated...

      Therefore, it's not correct to compare them together.
      Just you know about it.

      Elgg is a framework not CMS. 
      Take Elgg as it is and do whatever you want.

      For our SaaS, we've created several distributions that make it easier to launch your own app. 
      Of course, it's not free.
      But you can see that with Elgg everything is possible!

    • Thanks for the reply - I checked out your link to where you pointed out the copied code, and they seemed to say otherwise, but since I am not even close to being a coder I will just leave that as it is.

      I have seen a lot is possible with Elgg, but without the coding ability of long moved on devs (plugins and etc that are 7+ years abandoned) I just have no idea what to do to bring about what I am trying to build. I know Elgg is not a CMS, that would be something like WP, Joomla and etc. Elgg is a great framework, but the most recent plugins with any updates are by one or two devs - the rest range from 3-7 years since anyone even touched them.

    • I don't know how active the development of OSSN is.

      True, there are not so many plugin developers active anymore for Elgg. But is it different at OSSN? OSSN started by cloning the code of Elgg. As already mentioned it did that without making this clear! I think it was Elgg 1.8 that the first OSSN version was based on. The addition of the copyright hints was rather half-hearted if you ask me (and only done after complaining). This action alone shouid be some basis for decision making when deciding between OSSN and Elgg if you ask me...

      What about the developement of OSSN and its plugin? Is there any progress - and is there any progress in free plugins? Elgg is still developed (Elgg 4 will be out later this year). I expect Coldtrick will update their plugins for Elgg 4. And I hope I'll find some more time again soon to get my plugins updated for Elgg 3 (where still missing) and Elgg 4, too.

      The question is: what do you need for your site? Are the existing plugins enough? What with the equivalent plugins / functionality on OSSN side? Are they available? Are they available for free? If you would have to pay a developer to get it working for OSSN you could equally pay a developer to get it done for Elgg. It all depends what works best for you.
