Be Myspace's Tom (Updated)

Hope to see this updated for Elgg 1.5.  ...Looking for an update to autosubscribegroup for 1.5 too.

  • If you need to find the GUID for the user, and add the number as per the instructions in the start.php file:

    1. Download and install the GUID Tool in the mods folder and activate it in Administrative Tools.

    2. Click "Tools" and then click GUID Tool.

    3. Search for the instance, ie the user, or object and the GUID is there.

    4. Ender the number on the line that says "$BE_TOM_FRIEND_GUID = 2;" , with the number being the object that is changed. Upload the start.php file and you should be set!

    As a "non-techie" I spent a considerable amount of time trying to figure out the GUID of the user I wanted to "Be Tom." Downloading,  installing, and activating the tool, it took me SECONDS!

    This should be in the instructions for this plugin!!!!

  • Using the plugin in 1.2 was not a problem. But it doesn't work for 1.5. Has it been updated for 1.5??

  • Have you been able to get this to work on 1.5


  • I think this feature may be added to SiteAccess 2.3, at least I hope. Works brilliantly on Elgg 1.2.  Join ShellCode's plugins group and give some input there.
