  • What can i do to display my Tidypics in the Tab?

    Here is the widget code but it´s not working in the tab system:


        if (is_plugin_enabled('tidypics')){   
            $limit = get_plugin_setting('tidypics_num_items','vazco_mainpage');
            if (!isset($limit) || !$limit) $limit = 30;   
            $images = get_entities('object','image',0,0,$limit, false, false);
    <div class="index_box">
        <h2><?php echo elgg_echo("custom:tidypics"); ?></h2>
        <div class="search_listing">
            if(isset($images)) {
                $counter = 0;
                echo '<div class="frontpage_tidypics_box">';
                foreach($images as $image){
                    $counter +=1;
                    if ($counter == 6){
                        $counter = 0;
                        echo "</div>";
                        echo '<div class="frontpage_tidypics_box">';
                    echo "<div class=\"tidypics_index\">";
                    echo elgg_view("vazco_mainpage/tidypics/icon", array(
                            'mimetype' => $image->mimetype
                            ,'thumbnail' => $image->thumbnail
                            ,'file_guid' => $image->guid
                            ,'link' => $image->getUrl()
                            ,'size' => 'small'
                    echo "</div>"; //tidypics_index
                echo '</div>';
                echo elgg_echo('vazco_mainpage:tidypics:noactivity');
    <?php }?>

  • Great theme! One suggestion regarding the files which overwrite other plugins. In order to keep avoid having the theme break everytime one of these plugins is updated, you might consider using the "set_view_location" in start.php to keep each of these files under the mod/web1 directory. I believe that the overwrite of the login page under the views directory doesn't need to be listed in start.php because of the default "mod overwrites core" behavior built into the plugin system.

    I'm not a programmer myself, just have a curious streak. So you'll want to check this out yourself to verify.

  • Nice Work Baltej,

    but when i want to use an other language pack, the page "site administration"  show me this phrase :

    This admin panel allows you to control global settings for your site. Choose an option below to get started.

    on a white background ... Do you have an idea ??

  • I'm sorry for my last post, it was my fault, forgot it.

  • Yeah, I love this theme, it looks and works very nicely..  I do have one question.  How do I remove the icons on the frontpage so I don't show groups, members, video's etc..  IT is a private site and I don't want that info showing on the frontpage,  I looked in custom_index, and everything else, and can't find a way to remove those icons from the frontpage.. (the icons beside the title.. navigation?   Yeah.. I am stuck.. any help or suggestions of where to look would be helpful.. Thanks.

  • Baltej Singh

    @chris74,  you can edit the header_contents.php in Page Elements folder to remove the icons, You will have to remove the codes from the file after

    <div id="navigation-bar">

    you can remove any link <li>'s from the file to get your desired menus.. and This will work...

  • Thank you very much for the fast responce.. and for the info.. I will give it a try.. Again.. thanks alot!

  • Baltej Singh

    @Marco_Black - dont spam

  • Hi Baltej thanks for this theme it is really good.  The only problem I have is that my home page does not have a Login Form on the right side like your theme's demo page does.  How do I add that?  Thanks

  • Baltej Singh

    @Kaspelon yea... ur menu disappered because you may have changed the name of the template. This will be the problem of disappearing of the menu. at all this problem can solved by renaming the template to web1.

  • Baltej Singh

    @4ndreas upload all the files that were put into the anmyother folder. Overwrite the existing files ie. custom_index folder's and also the tabscript javascript too... you havent put the Javasccript file in the Custom_index folder .. this is the main problem

  • Baltej,
    Thanks for the quick reply, the template name is web1.


  • Hello Baltej -

    Does your template work with the uncaptcha 1.5 plugin.  I'm using your template but do not see the captcha image when the plugin is enabled.  I should see the same presentation as -

    I must be missing something in the setup.  Your help please.  Thanks Daniel

  • Hi, I tried to install this nice template by the instructions given inside the package but I still get the default look of elgg. Any idea how I could fix this or do I miss something?

  • Baltej Singh

    Try to refresh the page and uncheck the Use Simple Cache in Site Administration.

    and reload the page. You will get the new template. Best of luck.

    Check out the new theme provided by EDESIGNERZ.NET :

  • I loaded this template in, and now it seems that the dashboard is taking forever, and there is script errors that is causing problems on most of the pages. Did I do something wrong?

  • How can I have the Main Logo, change when Mouse over like the menu pictures do.

    Thank you in advanced.
