Newbee Question


Ok I have tried a few plug-ins all with the same results. Your "name of plug-in" has been disabled check wiki for clues ???

Wanted to change the theme to Simple BlueWhite :

I am new and just installed elgg 1.7.1 last night. I made 2 profiles on my site to see how it all works. I downloaded and unzipped a couple plug-ins then uploaded it to my site through fileZila into the mod folder. When I go into Admin. tools it is there for me to enable but when I do I get the same error message. I am sure I am doing something really wrong since I am as new as it gets, lol.

Should I have all the addons loaded before any profile is created or should most plug-ins work and merge with created profiles. Also I tried disabling all plug-ins and then enabled htem all again only to get he same error. HELP PLEASE....

  • hi mscobia...

    can u list the pluggins u downloaded and tried to install

    with their elgg urls....

    Most probably the case is that - most plugins when unzipped contain 2 folders- one outer folder and one inner folder which is the real pluggin folder (that which has to be uploaded to mod directory). You might have unzipped and uploaded the entire folder into your server and not the exact pluggin directory...

    anyway pls list the plugs... I'll look into it :)

  • After unzipping a plugin upload the whole folder to the mod folder.


    Download plugin 'requestnotifications'
    Unzip you are left with a 'requestnotifications' folder
    Upload entire folder (not it's contents) to mod folder
    Enable plugin
