3 column riverdashboard v0.2.1

Release Notes

If you downloaded the previous release please remove those files from your server and install this version. There was a bug caused by dreamweaver that could lead to your site being exploited.

This is a riverdashboard with 3 columns and using features from the latest version of riverdashboard. Should be pretty stable, i have more features not included in here that are still a little buggy - tobe released soon.

Works in elgg version 1.6.1 but i think it should work in 1.5 as well but havent tested it. please let me know if it works for you in 1.5


If you have these plugins installed open index.php and uncomment those lines.

For any plugins that add their own river icons, open the css for those plugins and comment out or delete the lines for the river icons.

  • Hey, im having the same problem as roman on page 1. i have tryed editing the css files and i cant find what i have to do to get the right collum to display properley. it seams to start on the right side but underneath the middle content...

    my sites url is http://www.illmethods.com if someone could please have a look and maybe tell me whats wrong.

    i have had this domain for just about a month on paid hosting without it actually being open since i am trying to find a good script to run for what i want to do, i think i have found it with this but just a couple little bugs but if i can get them sorted then ill be happy

    cheers to anyone that can help and thankyou to those that tryed



  • Hi, I'm trying to get my user avatars to float right in the river, can't find where in the css.  Firebug just shows them as "element" which isn't a whole lot of help :(

  • @matt..  in riverdashboard css change these two elements:

    #maincontent_wrap....    change width to 683    #col_two...  change width to 469  you should be good after that.

    @susan..  look in riverdashboard/views/default/river/item/wrapper.php

  • Hey! I enjoy your plugin.

    For the future release, I suggest to add a widget to show the user's bookmarks!

    Regards, Gleb.

  • @gleb..  thanks for input, ill see what i can do about bookmarks

  • @Fusion, Cheers bro

    it works sweet now and doesnt show up half way down the page

    I am on elgg 1.6 and was able to use this plug-in in earlier version but now all I get is a white screen. On page 3 this is mentioned and a reply says comment out some lines in the index.php. Which index.php and what lines?

    I do have iZAP installed and the instructions say “added a view for iZAP Recent profile visitors (requires plugin - uncomment lines:51)”  -  which index.php?




  • Dang it - I have no clue where all that crap comes from in my post but my question is at the bottom ^.

  • @fusion that did it :)  Thanks a million!

  • @4dplane..  index.php is inside riverdashboard directory. its 3 lines you need to check out.  one for recent visitors, tags, and photocumulus if you dont have those plugins comment out those lines or add the plugins.

    the next release will take care of this.

  • Thanks Fusion,

    I had to comment out specifically:

    $area3 .= elgg_view("riverdashboard/photo_cumulus");

    $area3 .= elgg_view("riverdashboard/recentview");

    $area1 .= elgg_view("riverdashboard/sidebarTagcloud");

    In your instructions you say "rename or delete riverdashboard/css.php from any external theme your using"

    Well if I do that then the external theme I am using no longer works. Does this mean I cannot use an external theme? When I do not do this the plugin works but the 3 columns do not sit in my graphics correctly. When I edit "views/default/riverdashboard/css.php" nothing changes.

    What am I missing?




  • @4dplane..  when i say that about external theme i am only talking about the css in riverdashboard folder of the external theme. you may need to edit the css of 3 column dashboard to fit correctly.  if you give me a url to your site i can take a look and tell you exactly what to do.
