    iionly, I have finally gotten around the Newsletter script problem by using an alternate mass mailing plugin - Galli Mass Mailer. It works OK with the 5 min cron. I have been able to inform my users of our upgrade to SSL so they can change their... view reply

    Many thanks for  CSV exporter. It works perfectly. Now if the Newsletter continues not to work, I can email users from a stand alone script. John view reply

    Then it's most likely just the video player flash executable (swf file) that's not correctly handled by IE. Instead of executing it it's handled as downloadable file. Do you have the flash plugin installed in IE? If yes, the problem is... view reply

    On further investigation this only happens (for me) with IE  in windows, and only happens when there is a video preview/still pushed from youtube in flash. I'm using the Webgalli videos plugin V1.5.     view reply
  • iionly replied on the discussion topic Flash Injection?
    You might want to ask the support of your webhoster about it. Maybe they inject these files (ads?). view reply
  • iionly replied on the discussion topic Extract email addresses as csv
    The CSV exporter plugin should allow you to do that. It's only available for Elgg 1.9 or newer here on the community site (https://elgg.org/plugins/1939447) but there's a version for 1.8 available at... view reply

    Hi all. Running a site on Apache Linux with Elgg Release - 1.9.7. My windows users are getting prompts to download a bunch of  seemingly random .swf files , e.g. 1TwOKtv8PnY.swf, 2CGyDXCABQo.swf .... etc. I've scanned them for...

    • Then it's most likely just the video player flash executable (swf file) that's not correctly handled by IE. Instead of executing it it's handled as downloadable file. Do you have the flash plugin installed in IE? If yes, the problem is likely caused by the way the video is embedded in the page by the Videos plugin (oftenly IE needs such kind of things handled differently than any other browser). If the flash plugin is not installed in IE, install it and try again.

    • Yes that works. I'm not a windows users but I installed the flash player in IE in my parallels test OS and that fixes the problem. Thanks!!!

    Does anyone know of an easy way to extract user email addresses from the database that would work in Elgg 1.8. ? My Newsletter plugin no longer works and am looking for an alternative.

  • Mauricio added a new discussion topic Error: has exceeded the 'max_user_connections'
    Has anyone had this error? Fatal error in exception handler. Check log for Exception at time 1490122120 Fatal error: Uncaught PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1226] User 'u662297310_admin' has exceeded the 'max_user_connections'...
    • That's an error from the MySQL server due to the max allowed concurrent connections being set too low for your site to properly work. You would have to increase the value of max_connections in the MySQL server config my.cnf. You might also want to set a value for wait_timeout if not already set or decrease the value if set. The wait_timeout value is the time in seconds the server waits before closing an unused connection. Default is 28800 seconds (8 hours) which means that it might not be ablue to open a new connection (due to the limit of 15 set for max_connections) even if there are less users on your site. Setting wait_timeout = 600 works for me.

      Increasing max_connections will result in more memory being used by the MySQL server. So, be careful with increasing.

      If you are on a shared server with no permission to alter my.cnf of the MySQL server, you would have to get in contact with the support to ask for help. If they don't allow more than 15 connections you might need to change your hosting plan or hoster.

  • Ismayil Khayredinov replied on the discussion topic making email field optional
    The short answer is you can't do it. The long answer is you have to rebuild a bunch of logic that's tied to user's having emails (e.g. notifications, password reset etc). Just don't do it. If you insist, just hide the field and... view reply
