Last updated

This is a release candidate, which means it has not yet been thoroughly tested. Please use at your own risk.

This plugin provides a profile that is similar in functionality to LinkedIn including the ability to add multiple entries for education, work-experience, add and endorse users' skills, and attach external links as part of your portfolio. Users can edit their profile on-the-spot since the plugin makes use of AJAX for submitting forms and actions.

This profile plugin was created by d'Holist for the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat for their internal Elgg project called GCconnex.

Installation instructions:

  1. Download and enable this module
  2. Download and install typeahead.js 0.11.1 from github:, and install it in the vendors folder so that typeahead.js is here:[nameOfYourElggFolder]/mod/b_extended_profile/vendors/typeahead/dist/typeahead.bundle.min.js
  3. Double check that you got that above path correct because it will likely be different depending on where and how you downloaded typeahead.js.

Optional steps:

  • Provide your own list of skills for populating the auto-suggest by editing [nameOfYourElggFolder]/mod/b_extended_profile/actions/b_extended_profile/skills.txt

Please provide with feedback in the comments section and I will try to help you as soon as possible.
