Release Notes

Initial Release

  • Gonna have to test this out when i'm done with upgrading my plugins for Elgg 2.X. Surely sounds very interesting!

    Can you tell if your plugin will work with Coldtricks "* Tools" plugins (Blog Tools, File Tools etc.) and with the Widget Manager plugin - especially regarding Index page widgets which are also provided by Coldtricks plugins to a certain extend? Does your plugin offer a totally different functionality or are there any overlapping (... conflicting) functionality?

  • Yes it works with the coldtrick plugins - it just adds more options to the widgets and adds a few new widgets.  This is basically an amalgamation of the old AU Widgets framework and those plugins, plus the liked content widget and tabtext.

    It works out to be different functionality, widget manager is more about customization of the widget display and how you use widgets, this is about customization of the widget content.  eg. the blog widget can now show you blogs posted between 2 dates, or only 3 specific blog posts.
