Last updated

This plugin lets site administrators conveniently manage all entities on their site. Entities can be browsed by types (and, in case of objects, subtypes), searched, sorted, filtered, displayed with different views, edited, enabled, disabled and deleted - all in one place. The plugin serves as an improved version of the old “guidtool” plugin.

This is a plugin for site administrators, ordinary community members will not benefit from it in any way – it will only be visible in the Administration panel.

Plugin developers will especially find this plugin useful – debugging entities and their property values has never been so easy with Elgg.

Warning: Using this plugin you can directly manipulate entities and their properties on your Elgg site. If you’re a site administrator, but not a seasoned Elgg developer, you should never try to edit entities via this plugin. Especially not on a live site, having real users and activities. It is very easy to screw up the site content by, let’s say, modifying owner_guid values without exactly knowing what you’re doing.

Before enabling and using this plugin on your site, please read the enclosed manual (docs/manual.pdf). Any questions not answered by the manual are welcome.
