Legacy Mode

Personal Appeal/Request to Elgg Web Team:
In feature when Elgg team release new releases 1.9, 2.0….
these release must have LEGACY mode or Backward plugins(mods) capability to run elgg 1.8 plugins(mods).

  • We maintain backward compatibility for Elgg's API. The change from 1.7 to 1.8 required more work than usual for 2 reasons:

    • Elgg 1.8 had more changes than any previous version (new menu system, new admin area, new sticky forms, and so on)
    • Elgg 1.8 rewrote the HTML/CSS

    Most of the 1.7 plugins will run on Elgg 1.8. They will just look strange due to the HTML/CSS changes and will throw deprecation warnings.

    For more information on this, read http://docs.elgg.org/wiki/Release_Policy
