  • On updating some development installations of Elgg I just found out that version 5.2 won't work on Elgg 1.10. Error is

    Call to undefined function elgg_get_context_stack() in /xxxxxxxxxxxx/mod/widget_manager/views/default/page/layouts/widgets/add_button.php on line 15

    The function elgg_get_context_stack() was introduced in Elgg 1.11.

  • Thanks for letting me know... i have updated the requirements in the project listing on this community. As Elgg 1.10 is no longer supported, i urge you to continue upgrading to 1.12 (or even better to 2.x).

  • I use the local 1.10 installation just for development (1.10 - 1.12 testing) as it already has a certain level of test content available and I'm in no need to add any stuff to my plugin that would be compatible with 1.11 or 1.12 only. On 2.X I already use version 6.2 of Widget Manager (btw. it might be nice to have this version available here, too, if you have a few minutes to spare).
