## Followers for Elgg 1.8 v1.0.1

### Release Notes

Removed "following" tab from all content filter menus.  Now only appearing on /activity/* pages.

• Hi Evan, thanks for the plugin!  Like rsaneas I'm experiencing a few issues with it on 1.8.2.  I've posted on Github.

Thanks!

• Seemed to work on elgg 1.8.2 but when I hit followers menu in mine all friends following, it came up deprecated in elgg 1.  I think the concept though.  Should be great one to add once ready.

• Here is the github traffic on the plugin:

https://github.com/ewinslow/elgg-followers/issues/8

• Fixed the deprecated error showing by removing the buttons reference in /pages/activity/following.php

$params = array( 'content' =>$content . $activity, 'sidebar' =>$sidebar,
//'buttons' => '',
'filter_context' => 'following',
'class' => 'elgg-river-layout',
);

Also, I'm using hypeAlive and the sidebar I have would not show on the follow page unless I placed elgg_set_page_owner_guid(elgg_get_logged_in_user_guid()); at the top of the follow.php file.

As well, the Follower plugin needs to be below hypeAlive in plugin order.

• Facing a little problem if someone can help. When on the Follow page and using the select filter, the page refreshes and shows the correct content but the Following tab is no longer selected. Any ideas on how to fix that?

• @rbruhn - I don't have a clue.  Evan can probably answer that.  I hope that he decides to continue supporting this plugin!

• Hello Evan,

Does it support following of group activities?

or only following on users?

Cheers,

Shahar

• Hi, I want to be a scroll bar appears when you have a lot of followers in the widget? (It would be a good choice). If you do not have the scroll bar, how can I put the number of users to be displayed in the widget?

Another thing, I'm using 1.8.4 and an error message appears in the activities (not shown people that followed, shows nothing), just taking care of that part of the code in start.php

I appreciate everyone's attention

Sorry for english

• Evan, thanks for the Plugin. Can you add follower count to the Follow Plugin, so that the number of followers can show on profile. Thanks.

• Hi

thanks for the plugin.

I actually wanted to know if we can give a button for follower and following and when clicked on it, it opens in a new page with all the user following you and user u r following respectively. Now its just in a widget can we have a menu like thing for thing?

• Deprecated in 1.0: Use elgg_register_menu_item() to register for the title menu

• @evan, when a no admin user clicks follow on his activity page it s shows him all wire, it is public for all users... and my wire now is private.  Only public when click follow.. it s a great pluggin but how can I make it private? Only if I push follow on an user I can see his tweets?

• Hey Evan, is it possible to let users who both follow eachother to both get a notification if they 'match'?

• Or maybe something more easy then, let the followed one get a notification that he is followed?

• Last updated 897 days ago thats all i can say lol

• Will there be a version for Elgg 1.9 now?
How do I disallow someone / stop someone from following me?

• There will be no further updates to this plugin unless someone takes it over.

• Two things

How do I disallow someone following me
How to show the user icons in the widgets in  a grid (without names) and specify how many number before a 'more' link appears

• While trying this with Elgg 1.9.x it gets installed but when 'Activity' is clicked "Sorry. We could not find the page that you requested" is shown and the activity stream vanishes

• Someone is not taking it over. Evan, I understand you have other priorities. But if its some minor fix please release a version for Elgg 1.9.4

• nice plugin but not work for 1.9.6. Pitttty!

• Can you please update it?

• Please update this add - on to run on the top 3 versions

Where this is the only supplement that does this requirement

• don't work with elgg 3 please update
