Custom index with widgets v1.1

Release Notes


Fixes in 1.1:

  1. Fix the mismatch between area2 and area3 when saving
  2. Fix the size of headers in half size areas on edit zone


  • About the included folder MACOSX, what are we supposed to do with it? Where do we upload it to?

    Also, anyway this plugin can work with external pages?

    Issues: When enabled, my frontpage only displays athe login box. Settings for the external pages do not show.

  • Nice plugin! Works fine, just one and very important issue; My Videos, Wire posts, file widget, and bookmarks widget are connected only to administrator activity, not to all site users. How can we change it?

  • this version seems to be broken if installed for the first time.

    i installed 1.1, tried it and didn't work like Sem reports above. Installing 1.0 first, then upgrading to 1.1 seems to work... haven't found out why for now.

    anyways, great work!!!! now it would be awesome to have the different column setups on the dashboard too :P

  • Btw, some of the latest_* widgets were wrong (they just replicated the latest members widget), this patch fixes bookmarks and files widgets you provide.

  • antifmradio:

    I don't know if it works with the 1.5 but the east you can do is ... to try. The pluggin is very inspired form Custom index (which runs in 1.5) and the Elgg native widget api. So, ...

    Concerning your old codes in the old custom index, follow this recipe:

    1. Create a directory in the view/widgets directory, my_widget for example.
    2. Copy paste form another widgets directory the two files edit.php and view.php in your my_widget ditrectory.
    3. Edit the view.php, and look at it he is simple. Copy and slight rearrange your old code contained in your old custom index.
    4. In the start.php, add on the init procedure the declaration off the widget, which name must correspond to the drectory name (my_widget here)

    Thanks for the explication for Sem concerning Mac OSX. I work on the both platforms, so sometimes, there will be maybe these kinds of files.


    Serge: Euhh; i don't know.


    Thanks, someone had already reported these issues concerning these widget, but may be beacuse off the cache, i didn't reproduce. It's ok now.

    Concerning your problem with the new install, i tried to fix with a default layout if none is given. Perhapss it will help. See the 1.2 to verify.
