    Hey. I'm trying to figure out how to get at the css of my elgg page. I've tried to install custom_css plugin by Matt but when i navigate to the url .../start.php it just gives me a "Can't find this page" error. I'm just using the default theme...
    • You don't navigate to start.php in your browser. You have to open that file with an editor and read the information inside. Matt's plugin is a learning tool that demonstrates how to programatically change the CSS "the Elgg way."

  • Ben added a new discussion topic Elgg search bar on wordpress site in the group Beginning Developers
    Hey  I'm m setting up a wordpress site that is in two pieces really. A wordpress site and then an elgg site that is the socal component. What I'm trying to figure out is whether there is a way to embed the search bar function on the wordpress...
    • I don't know about the search bar, but here's some info on how to embed the tobpar in WP:

      Instead of calling the topbar, you could try calling the search bar


      echo elgg_view('page_elements/search');

    • goto your wp install's theme folder (assuming that you are
      using a theme in your wp that defines the wp search area).
      then, find this code :-
          <form method="get" id="searchform" action="<!--?php echo esc_url( home_url( '/' ) ); ?-->">
      after that add code something like this :-
          include    "/engine/start.php"
      then code to include this for the elgg search box -->
      you will then need to handle all the differences in the iu 
      because of the different theming style..
