    Trying to get "Send Private Message" widget to work. I have installed the private_profiles plugin which should facilitate sending private messages. However, there is no private message widget to add to the user profile page. I am also...
    • Try Message Board bundled plugin (/vendor/elgg/mod/messageboard)

    • The "Send Private Message" widget is not available in a default Elgg installation. It's provided here on the community site by a custom plugin ( In a default Elgg installation the Messageboard plugin would provide a similar widget - though in this case the posted messages would be publically visible on the profile pages.

      On a default Elgg site the sending of private messages can be initialized either from the profile pages of users or the hover menu of user icons by the "Send a message" option. The Private Profile plugin also hooks in here to check if a user is allowed to send another user a private message. I don't know if the Private Profile plugin would also work flawless with the "Send Private Message" widget to prevent sending of unwanted private messages. It might not send the message in the end but it might still display the widget at least also on profile pages of users where the visiting user is not allowed to send messages.

    I am having what appears to be javascript issues using  both hypeDropzone and hypeWall_extended. When I drag a file to the upload area, instead of placing the file name in the box, it opens the file in a new browser window...
    • Javascript is all client based, you don't need anything installed on your server for it to work.
      It would be really helpful to debug if you have something like firebug installed in your browser. Activate it, load your webpage and if there are one or more red balloons popping up in firebug, see what the errors are in the console.

      Do you have ONLY hypewall and dropzone installed as third-party plugins? If not, it could be virtually any plugin causing an error. This error might preventing other javascript to execute properly

  • GaryMcGill added a new discussion topic hypeWall uploaded image sizes in the group Elgg Technical Support
    When a user uploads an image, hypeWall creates 3 images. The size of these are 60x60, 153x153 and 600x600. Does anyone know how to modify the image sizes hypeWall creates? I use a 3-column wall so I need the sizes of these files to be a bit...
  • GaryMcGill replied on the discussion topic hypeWall image upload does not show up on wall
    I am a step closer to understanding why the image placed on the wall shows incorrectly. I noticed by looking at the elgguserUpdoads directory in the icons subdirectory the uploaded file has been cropped. I tested the process by uploading an image... view reply
