## Group announcements for Elgg 1.8 v1.0b

### Release Notes

This is a beta release, meaning it has not been thoroughly vetted for bugs and/or usability issues.  Your bug reports are very much appreciated (and patches are appreciated even more!)

Also, like most of my other plugins recently, this is for...

ELGG 1.8 ONLY

• is it possible to add this not only fro groups, but also also with friendpicker or follower picker , so you can send an annunce to more friends?

• I think what you'd really want is a private messages plugin that allows you to send to multiple people. That's out of scope for this particular plugin, but I think it's definitely a good idea.

• I install the plugin, however i dont see where i can make an annoucement.

• Like Eric, I installed this and can see liks to display announcements, but no option to create them.

Am I missing something or looking in the wrong place or is it incomplete?

Thanks

• me too, like roger, i think there is much more that is incorrect...!

first you can create the button, its missing: /pages/announcements/owner.php add elgg_register_title_button(); in line 12

but when you save, then there ist a permission-error, i comment out in /action/announcements/save.php the elseif lines with beginning:
//elseif ($editing && !$announcement->canEdit()) {

Ok, now its working...but there is another issue, becaus the all site with the tabs all, mine, friends dont work for mine and friends, the file are not registered! i try to register a site but its didnt show my announcements...

i dont test the emails...its many wrong with this plugin, i think that dont should be published!!!

• I've got the plugin installed and working.  As admin of the group the "announcement" option is displayed vertically on the right hand side, is about five pixels wide, and goes all the way down to the bottom of the page (I'm guessing it's supposed to show up underneath "group discussions" or "group pages").

• "Like Eric, I installed this and can see liks to display announcements, but no option to create them.

Yes, I can't create new announcements. I think there is wrong code.

And when I go to website.com/announcements/inbox, I get next message:

This is good plugin, but I can't use. Can you see this plugin?
I have the latest Elgg, 1.8.0.1.

• I could create new announcement, but this wasn't easy.
I seen a group. A clicked Add new blog buttom and a seen the link. After I edit this link. There is number for groups.
The group's number is 183. Example.
I don't understand that why isn't create buttom for announcement.

• Hey thanks for the great plugin, it's really apprecited.  recomended!

• It is not there for me even on the right side anywhere.

• run upgrade.php if you can't see it. Your site might need to refresh its cache.

• does this work on 1.8.3?
