iShouvik Riverdashboard v0.2

Release Notes


  • Download the plugin and extract it.
  • The extracted folder contains two plugins - riverdashboard and friend_request. Replace the default riverdashboard of elgg inside the /elgg/mod directory with the new one. Installing the friend_request plugin is optional
  • Enable from the Tools Administration page.
  • You might need to run the upgrade script ie. http://URL.TLD/upgrade.php
  • Make sure you have the messages plugin enable to make this riverdashboard work.
  • Try to put the plugin close to the bottom on the Tools Administration page of your Elgg site.
  • If you are using plugins like River Comments and Likes, make sure they reside below this plugin.


  • Disable the previous version of iShouvik riverdashboard
  • replace the old files with the newer ones
  • Re-enable the 'riverdashboard' plugin. (You might need to run the upgrade script i.e. http:YOURSITE.TLD/upgrade.php )

What is new

  • More plugin support on the dashboard - Bookmarks, Polls, iZap profile visitors along with previous elements -- friends, recent members, site message and advertisement.
  • Admin settings - allowing you to configure which plugins to display on the dashboard and the number of elements to show as well as an advertisemenet code form where you can paste the advertisement code and it will be visible on the dashboard, no playing with the php files.


Tested with Elgg 1.7.1 (a couple of links could be broken), 1.7.5, 1.7.6 and 1.7.7 on all major browsers. Althouth I haven't chanced to test the plugin on Elgg 1.7.9, it is highly unlikely to be broken on it.

Not compatible with Elgg 1.8b1

Preferred support is given to those who have either donated $25 or keep the link to my site in the right sidebar.

Mail to contact[at] to make donation to support the plugin development or request quotation for tailor-made reservice.

Please, report bugs, language packs and other codes for improvment.
