  • Oki ;-) i found that github link.. and so far TidyPics seems to run quite oki-doki for my 1.8.3 Elgg ;-P no issues ! Angelito estar mucho feliz now ;-)

  • @ DhrupDeScoop

    Can u give me the github link wherefrom u download the Tidypic for 1.8.3 site. I badly need the same for my site www.sociotime.com

  • If it helps anyone, I tried this version:


    But I got a pretty ugly Fatal Error after uploading a photo.  Activity stream is broken too.

    So I'm not sure I would recommend this for a live site without some extensive testing first.

    Fatal Error.

    FUNCTION common_elgg.FIELD does not exist

    QUERY: SELECT DISTINCT e.* FROM commonentities e WHERE e.guid IN (195) AND (e.site_guid IN (1)) AND ( (1 = 1) and e.enabled='yes') ORDER BY FIELD (e.guid, 195)


  • Brett found the source of the problem I reported above and fixed it here:


    Updated version of Tidypics is available here:  https://github.com/brettp/Tidypics/

  • WORKS FINE in 1.83: SKSLink.com/network

    Everything working great on my site but I forgot what I did to fix it since the comments I did been closed in:Tidypics Fix elgg 1.8

    P/S: What I did was re-installed few times with old version. Kept the good ones, un-installed the script.

    P/S/S: Pasted the good one's to the newly installed script 1.83


    *Take your own risk as I had mine, lost 500 plus active users. A Single mistake made all the file goneforever.

  • Please someone tells me to tidypics a great need to elgg 1.8.3.

  • There does not appear to be any working version of this plugin for elgg 1.8

    It is hard to understand why it would take so long for a fix/working version considering how long elgg 1.8 has been out.

  • We're in a holding pattern upgrading our sites till this plugin and izap video are ready for 1.8. They both are mandatory. I'm assuming that day will come eventually - hopefully sooner than later. We're really excited about the prospect of upgrading, just can't go there yet.

  • I'm so so sorry, but i'm just a bit confused.... because i didn't understand wich release i have to install on elgg 1.8.3


    because i tryed to install 1.7.3 and i have many " deprecate error "

    i tryed with other version ( i don't rememeber the name.. but was taked from a website ) and i reice an " invalid admin page "


    Well... i know, i'm total rookie about elgg.. but someone can help me?


  • @ mauro: Tidypics is not yet released for a stable version for 1.8 .. Tidypics Team has only released a preview version which will not work perfectly bcz the full work is not yet completed... using the preview version on a productive site is not adviced.. 

  • Ahhhhhh, okok thank you...


    my question is,

    Downgrade my elgg version to 1.7 or use another plugin for photo gallery????
    Any suggestion are welcome

  • @MP:

    'Downgrading' Elgg from 1.8 to a lower 1.7 version -- will most likely break your site into the toilet - oro - cause mucho problems ;( -- due to any database structure changes whihc were introduced for 1.8. The only way to 'downgrade' with fewer or zero probkems is if one knows at he low database, table, field level what those DB changes are - and can then patch and fix any quirks.


    @ALL Devs:

    Is it not about high-time or so late - that very few Devs have thought of developing photo gallery alternatives to TidyPics ? The only known ones are IK's fledgeling 'HypeGallery' and the several flavors which I have been slowly.. working on - Media & SimpleMedia. So - C'mon guys ! Every other CMS platform has got a plethora of photo gallery plugins.. except 'Elgg' ;-P Felices Codificación !

  • The gitub version I got, following topdog's above link, works like a charm on my 1.8.3 local test site!

    Only problem in my specific case is that none latin characters (greek lang) of description show all mangled in cool iris slide show description box - any suggestions to fix this?

    Also is it possible to somehow use the lightbox effect for all images on the site since it's activated for TP?

    Thanks for your hard work!

  • When I click on photos in the top bar, I get this error; Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '*/mod/tidypics/pages/photos/all.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in */connect/mod/Tidypics/start.php on line 134


    When I click on Tidypics settings in my admin panel, I get this error; Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '*/connect/mod/tidypics/version.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in */connect/mod/Tidypics/lib/tidypics.php on line 130


    Is there a fix for these? The all.php and the version.php are both in the correct spot? Is there a way I can fix these errors? Thank you in advance.

  • Oh and I forgot to mention, I am using the 1.8.3 version of Elgg. :)

  • My site www.sociotime.com is on elgg 1.8.3, I am running a photo contest using Tidypic ....firstly I got some issues. But now it is running smoothly.

  • I'm running the version currently in the github link https://github.com/brettp/Tidypics/ ( commit 90b3ef93ab20ceb49d0e2f5b40a87dd6608d05f4 ) on elgg 1.8.3 with no probs.  Only minor bug I found so far was:

    1. Create album and upload images
    2. Sort the images: drag and drop to new ordering
    3. Run slideshow
    The slideshow will present the images in the order that they were uploaded and not the new sort order.  Other than that working well :)
  • Hello!

    I've installed the last version of Tidypics in my elgg 1.8.3 but when I clic in "photos" inside a member's profile, the browser shows me an empty page.

    I've contacted with my server and they told me that library DG is enabled.

    I send you 3 screenshots. Can anybody help me? Thank you very much.




  • @Dip Purkayastha,

    Your Site looks fine. What version are you using?

  • Hi. I am using elgg 1.8.3 and tidy pics preview 1( https://github.com/brettp/Tidypics/). I am facing following problems:

    1- Thumbnail image does not appear in the albums.

    2- Some albums shows zero images in album cover, while actually there are pictures there. on clicking these images nothing appear.

    Any suggestions shall highly be appreciated please.

  • My version is 7.8 and my photo album are not in order check this http://veitias.com/pg/photos/world there are some way to fix this? because look very bad thanks.

  • @Roy: I think the issue you see is caused by your theme. Normally 4 albums are displayed in one row. For some reasons the width of the main content area on your site is too small to display 4 albums, so the 4th is pushed to the next row and shown alone. The width of the content area is normally set in the CSS of the theme - by default Elgg sets the width high enough.

  • I'm using 1.8.3 and I see others here are too and it seems to be working on their installations. When I attempt to activate the plugin I get this:

    The website encountered an error while retrieving https://techacademic.com/action/admin/plugins/activate?plugin_guids%5B0%5D=2115&__elgg_ts=1338125929&__elgg_token=2b9806110ee984dc0d74505e1085a2d9. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    Here are some suggestions:

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request. 
    When I click on reload I am directed back to the main page where I get a message that the tidypics plugin could not be activated but I can see "photos" in the "more" drop down menu and when I click on that I get this:
    The website encountered an error while retrieving https://techacademic.com/photos/all. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    Here are some suggestions:

    HTTP Error 500 (Internal Server Error): An unexpected condition was encountered while the server was attempting to fulfill the request.
    Do I just have something configured wrong?
  • @tbevel: what version of Tidypics are you using? Don't try it with Tidypics 1.7.3 or earlier. There's not yet a final release of Tidypics for Elgg 1.8 but you can try the latest development release from https://github.com/brettp/Tidypics/downloads.
