  • works fine, but if you put a text/image url doesn´t work

  • Hello Matt,

    I've been using your plugin for a bit, at first worked fine, but somehow after the second login the home page doesn't show. Is there a way that I can make the welcome page show every login?

    Thanks in advance.

  • It's designed to show the welcome page only after the first login.  I'm sure it's possible to extend it to other places but I haven't looked at this code in almost 18 months so I can't give you any clear instructions on what to look for offhand.

  • Elgg 1.9 Compatibility: Displays the relevant welcome pages with text for the first and second logins. I could not get images displayed consistently on these pages. After setting the images they seem to display fine for the first registrant or so, but afterwards they disappear.

    Both 1.9/1.8: If you do not confirm the page, you can still logout but the next time you come back, you see the same page. Trivia: After confirming the 1st page if you go back with browser buttons, you get the 2nd page. If you also confirm it and then try to go back with browser, displays harmless "An unidentified error occurred".

    On 1.9, I could not get the site message received in the first 2 or consequtive logins (It is received on Elgg 1.8 after first login - "next login concept and the use of this site message is not clear to me, so I might have done something wrong).

    Tested on Elgg 1.9.3 Walled Garden with around 10 non-bundled plugins.

  • Any chance of an upgrade to a working version for 1.9? If you need me to do anything let me know (minor PHP knowledge).
