Release Notes

1.1.1 (2012-11-14):

  • fixed: critical bug in upgrade script when you first enable file_tools (thanks to Sergiy Kamolov http://community.elgg.org/profile/sergiy.kamolov)
  • changed: disabled notifications of new file on zip upload
  • changed: README.txt to README.md for better markup
  • Jerome, any interest in builder some sort of inline viewer into this?

  • very usefull plugin thx jerome 
    works with 1.8.9 :-) 

  • Very cool plugin! Thanks..

    Would it be possible to have images shown as they are (and not need to download to se), instead of standard icons..?

  • @ Jerome file filtration by type for uploads and inline Google viewer would be a dream.

  • @Muller: That would be definitely possible to code, however the pay-load of the page will increase. A better approach might be to trigger an ajaxed light-show style; so that the (large) images are only fetched on-demand as the user wishes and clicks for. This will give you the in-line viewing, but keep the page's nett-weight down and so not affect your page loading negatively.

  • @ Dhrup Box.net seems to be a great solution. I still have smartfiles on my 1.7 install and it works great the file shows up in a resizable box which you can zoom ect. Does Gdocs do that?

  • @Dhrup, as always you are the king of answers here in the community! Great idea with the lightbox, that I will go for.. You are totally right on the heavy load of the images. Thanx

  • Hi

    Nice plugin, really usefull.

    But I've got a issue. I created a folder structure, it appears correctly into the web interface. But when I try to navigate into folders, nothing happens.. I can't see files uploaded on it. To see the file, I must refresh the page and then.

    Any idea ?

    Many thanks for your help...

  • Sorry, another problem. I started to translate to french language, unfortunatly, there is a issue displaying special caractere. Here an example: Supprimer la s�lection | T�l�charger la s�lection (sélection, télécharger la sélection).

    Can you help me to fix it, thanks

    How are you translating? 1: have you created a fr.php file and copied all the keys and are translating those or 2: using translation editor (http://community.elgg.org/plugins/385116/1.2.1/translation-editor)

    if 1: is your file correclty encoded? if 2: this shouldn't happen ;)

  • @Jerome: translation editor didn't save the language files in UTF-8 the last time I tried it (just thought I maybe should mention that at some time - and as you referred to it here I thought it would fit).

  • @Jerome,

    I do not have any javascript error as far as I know (no popup error message).

    I use Textedit apps to translate the file, I checked the parameters, everything song's good (UTF-8).

    I note the comment of iionly but will test it, we never know !

    Will get back to you soon. Thanks for your help.

     

  • Perfect I fixed the problem !!! I did not know this plugin, I must recommend it !

    Thanks a lot Jerome.

    What's about my other issue :

  • Everything looks really great, but as of now I get the following error when I try to upload: 

     

    Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token <   jquery-1.6.4.min.js:2
      e.extend.parseJSON   jquery-1.6.4.min.js:2
      $uploadifyButton.uploadify.onUploadSuccess   elgg.1360019072.js:2443
      a.onUploadSuccess   jquery.uploadify-3.1.min.js:16
      (anonymous function)   jquery.uploadify-3.1.min.js:16
      SWFUpload.executeNextEvent   jquery.uploadify-3.1.min.js:16
      (anonymous function)   jquery.uploadify-3.1.min.js:16

  • Still unable to upload anything when this plugin is enabled, but I'm not sure if it's File Tools or if it's something wierd with my configuration. Is anyone using this on 1.8.13?

  • I found a bug. When i change user access rights And apply this to all sub-folders Then all the files move to the root level.

  • Hi 

    i m new user of elgg. I installed the plug in. It s work well, but when i uploaded file, the plugin send mail of notification with title " new file is uploaded". 

    In order to identify faster the subject of mail sended, can we change it buy groupe title, it will be easier to sort received mail of notification. 

    I do same observation of photo album, news group discussions, etc... you need open notification mail to  reaaly know the group subject

     

    Regards

    Currently it's not possible for developers to change the subject of the e-mail notification. This will be a feature request for some future Elgg version

  • This is an awesome plugin. It extends the file plugin with many features, i would not want to miss.
    There is only one thing i am still missing: a file versioning system in elgg.
    Can this be done by this (or any other) plugin or is this feature planned??

    Elgg != Document Management System. Sure it could be done (possibly) but there are other products that can do this much much better.

    The best way to get what you want is to make an integration between both. Maybe have a look at Etherpad and https://github.com/efault/elggpad-lite (elgg plugin for etherpad)

  • I know that elgg is not a DMS, but since it provides some file management functionality, i thought that file versioning would be a great idea.

    Etherpad is definitly not what i am looking for... i do not need the ability of document editing in a browser (and not by multiple users at the same time). I just want some simple file versioning for collaboration.

    What i am searching for is much more like a collaboration tool which also references files (and i thought that this is something that can be done using elgg). One of the workflows i would like to support is the creation of slides. A person would publish slides and then referencing them in a coop-page while improving the slides as a result of the discussion going on. The different improvements should then be versioned, since i would like to also have access on the original slides...
