    I can't test on Elgg 1.x anymore but I've just tested on Elgg 2.3 and I think it should be the same on Elgg 1.8. Elgg searches only the title and description fields by default. I could verify this behaviour, i.e. a search term used in the... view reply

    Hello, the question that I hope someone can answer or make a suggestion. I am on an older version of ELGG using the 1.8 version of Event Calendar.  Any idea why calendar entries are not searchable?  They are reg as a type of...
    • I can't test on Elgg 1.x anymore but I've just tested on Elgg 2.3 and I think it should be the same on Elgg 1.8. Elgg searches only the title and description fields by default. I could verify this behaviour, i.e. a search term used in the title or description of an event resulted in this event shown as a result of a search. But searching for a term used for example in the long description of an event did not resulted in this event being shown in a search result.

      For Elgg including other fields of an Event Calendar entry in a search it would be necessary to add a custom search hook to the plugin. I could add such a hook in a new release of Event Calendar (and quite likely will do when working on a Elgg 3 release hopefully soon) but I'm afraid I will no longer work on any new releases of the Event Calendar plugin for Elgg 1.x.

    Croncheck plugin: most likely wrong version installed (the one you tried is not compatible with the Elgg version you use). Please don't mix elgg-cli cronjobs with the other approach. Use one way for all intervals. I haven't used the... view reply

    @uwharries Let me configure your server. I need access via SSH only. Send PM with credentials (host, port, root's login and password). view reply

    Forget about the elgg-cli cronjobs. That's another possibility (but from personal experience I don't recommend it if you don't know what you are doing). If they have added the minute cronjob with lwp-request let them add the... view reply

    You almost did it right. But two things are important: Is the lwp-request tool installed on your server and if yes what's the path to the command? That's something you could ask the support. In the example I gave it's assumed... view reply
