  • TCB added a new discussion topic customize blog plugin in the group Plugin Development
    I have a plugin and would like to override the  save.php action located in the blog module at:  /var/www/html/vendor/elgg/elgg/mod/blog/actions/blog Can you override this action in the same manner as overriding a core action...
    • So I've added to my start.php: 

      elgg_register_action('mod/blog/actions/blog/save', __DIR__ . '/actions/blog/save.php');

      and added some system_message statements at the beginning of my action file to display when this action is triggered but doesn't seem to be recognizing my file.  I've also tried to modify the core action located in my elgg installation directory at:

      /var/www/html/vendor/elgg/elgg/mod/blog/actions/blog/save.php

      added some system_message statements when I know the blog post saved successfully like:

      system_message(elgg_echo('blog:message:saved'));

      system_message('custom message');

      but, my custom message never printed so I'm not sure why even my changes in the core action aren't being recognized.  Seems like I'm overlooking something simple here... but haven't yet figured it out.

    • Please read the documentation on how to correctly register an action.

      it should be

      elgg_register_action('blog/save', __DIR__ . '/actions/blog/save.php');
    • Thanks Jerome.. I did read the docs but I was a little confused about how to override an action that is part of a bundled plugin.  I wasn't sure if it was the same as registering a new action from scratch.

    Hi Jerome, I have installed this plugin and trying to test it out on my site. When I try to comment on a question I have posted, I receive fatal error message. Do you know what this could be?

    • Thank you for your response. This is what the user says happens in his words: "every time I attempt to log in.... Okay, so when I click on 'log in', two boxes appear, (1) user name/e-mail address & (2) password. As soon as I click on the user name box, both boxes immediately disappear. I have tried to log in on both my iPhone & my desktop computer...same thing happens every single time."

      As for the other user, I do not get a profile page for him... so I guess I will try deleting him. Then add him again!

    • Have you any 3rd party installed plugins/themes?

    • If it's only the one user who has a problem I suggest you ask him which operating system and browser he uses and maybe also if he uses a mobile or desktop browser. Then you can try to reproduce the issue. You could also ask him if it's possible for him to try it with a different browser and/or operating system (e.g. on smartphone instead of desktop or vice-versa).

      The only possibility that might cause the issue would be a matter of using www (or the opposite: non including www) in the site url. In the past this caused an error sometimes (see http://learn.elgg.org/en/stable/appendix/faqs.html#login-token-mismatch) and on Internet Explorer people sometimes had to login twice. It's not the same problem described by the user but it won't hurt to add the suitable rewrite to your .htaccess file ("suitable" depends if your site url - as entered during installation and shown on the settings page in the admin area of your site - contains www or not). You would have to add the rule below the line

      # If you must add RewriteRules to change hostname, add them directly below (above all the others)

      in your .htaccess file.

      In case your site uses https a slightly different approach is necessary to also take into account the rewrite from non-https to https. A google search should help in this case

    • If you are referring to the Newsletter plugin from https://elgg.org/plugins/1564847 it says that TinyMCE is required from Elgg 1.8 (Elgg came with TinyMCE back then) but CKEditor for Elgg 1.9 or newer (CKEditor replaced TinyMCE). So, you should be alright with CKEditor.

      TinyMCE

      TinyMCE plugin.

      Conflicts with plugin: CKEditor

       

    • You can't have enabled both CKEditor and Tinymce at the same time. You have to use either one of them. With Tinymce you need to make sure that the plugin is compatible with the Elgg version you use additionally. I don't know if any but mine (https://elgg.org/plugins/782028) works with Elgg 2.

      But the conflict between CKEditor and Tinymce is just one part of the issue. I know that my TinyMCE plugin works fine with all bundled plugins and also all of my plugins. But other plugins might explicitely require the CKEditor plugin (e.g. the Newsletter plugin - also make sure to use the recommended version for your Elgg version). If the Newsletter plugin would require the CKEditor plugin already to be activated you have not much choice as to stick with the CKEditor plugin.
