Uses standard access collections for friends access

Last updated

Friends ACL

In Elgg the friends access collection is abstracted and access is determined by a relationship check at the point of database query. Problems can arise when viewing comments/replies and annotations that use this abstracted friends access id such that some comments/replies may not be visible to some viewers that should have access.

This plugin does 3 simple tasks.

  1. Creates a legitimate access collection for a users friends
  2. Retroactively updates a users content to use the new access collection
  3. Uses the new access collection in place of the default friends access id for new content
