  • tried it didn't work

  • is there any way i can make the elgg top notification bar visible on the mobile view so that mobile view users (especialy opera mini) can see friend request, inbox and reply to wire post sent to them? please if there is anyway, kindly show me how to implement it

  • @idorenyin Friends, Messages and The Wire link has been moved to the dropdown menu in header.

  • Hello Gillie,

    Excellent work, really innovative!  

    Two issues i'm having.

    i can't change the header height no matter what i attempt to change in /mod/mobilize/views/default/css/mobilize.php.

    Also, i am working with a theme plugin that over rides the default index it shows at the bottom of the login screen but i don't want it to. Any clues as to how to change this.  i can send you the url if you need.  Many thanks...


  • @9Etha Do you uncheck caching while editing or flush caches from the admin panel?

    You should find and edit this css snippet,

    .elgg-page-default .elgg-page-header > .elgg-inner {
        width: auto;
        margin: 0 auto;
        height: 60px;

    Keep mobilize at the bottom of the plugin list.



  • Hey Gillie, 

    Your timely response was appreciated.  Site caching is not on and have been flushed, and is reflective to other changes i've made with other plugins before and after i've installed yours.  i've checked on multiple devices and still no changes., even when chages are made to: 

    .elgg-page-default .elgg-page-header > .elgg-inner {
        width: auto;
        margin: 0 auto;
        height: 60px;

    Although i am willing to live with it, unless you see a suitable solution.  The main problem I'm having is with my theme being shown at the bottom of the log in/ register page. Is there anyway to disable this? 

    Testing has been done with an Android device.

    Please accept my thanks in advance.


  • @9Etha

    Are you using a theme developed for elgg 1.7? (checked the url you pm'ed).

  • no its a 1.8 theme, the only other time the theme shows at the bottom is when i disable mobilize and set site access to public.  Is there a way to cause mobilize to ignore this altogether?

  • @9Etha The index is rendered twice. If you can find a index plugin hook handler in your theme start.php try to unregister it in mobilize just above mobilize index handler. It could look like this,


  • Hi Gillie,

    is it important which template I have to coose for your plugin?
    Or do you you have any recommendations?

    I'm very new to elgg, so I hope that I not bother you with my questions...

    Greetings from germany


  • @Ralf

    Most themes should work with mobilize, but you should probably adjust some css.

  • Hi gillie,

    I've been trying several mobile plugins for a year now. None of them support my website with a single public page created using login_required.
    With your latest version, the page does look much better on an Android mobile, but the right side of the page is not shown. So, for that reason I cannot open the login dropdown box.
    Tried to adjust the width without result.


  • @Daniel Hazelzet

    If it's a public page you created using login required, you must be able to adjust the css. Maybe you should ask iionly, I don't really know public_pages plugin.

  • hey pals... pls y'all am having problems with my site logo...i replaced the mobilize logo with my site's logo nd also reduced the size.....but my site logo still appears too big on mobile and also my site loads slower on mobile...pls help pals

  • @dotman

    ...but my site logo still appears too big on mobile

    Try to run upgrade.php. site loads slower on mobile

    Did you compare loadtime with and without mobilize enabled?

  • @per jensen.....i did run upgrade.php...still the logo is still big......

  • how to hide menu name in mobilize........... (eg i want  contact_us menu only display in pc website) not in mobilize .....if possiable....

  • In the plugins startfile you could use something as: "elgg_unregister_menu_item('topbar', 'contact_us');" (where contact_us is the name of the menu item you want to hide.
    Make sure you ad it after  "if($mobile == true) {"

  • hi all,

    I need to have search function, but I couldn't find it. Can someone help me?


  • Hi, how can i disable plugins for mobilize?  I have a plugin for the desktop version, but it displays error on the mobile version. How can I use this plugin on the desktop version, but not on the mobile version

  • I have a plugin for the desktop version, but it displays error on the mobile version. How can I use this plugin on the desktop version, but not on the mobile version

  • @SekolahBola

    If you want to show search, open start.php and find and comment out line like below,

    // elgg_unextend_view('page/elements/header', 'search/header');

    Then find the css and position search to your liking.


    That would mean deactivate a plugin per user. Haven't looked into how to do that, maybe other community members have.

  • how to shows friends_request in menu?????


  • @v06

    A menu item is already added to the sidebar when you go to Friends. If you want menu items elsewhere, you should ask the plugin author.
