  • buraddo added a new discussion topic Some hints on manipulating profile data in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hey all, I have some custom profile fields (Profile Manager) for all my users and I want to bulk modify them. First step is to delete all the data in these fields. Then I will repopulate it based on the email value for a user. I am trying to...
  • buraddo replied on the discussion topic What created this value?
    Consistency matters for a UI.. People expect a certain behaviour across the whole site. My particular group of people are not very technology savvy and the less they need to touch the better. So I want defaults to be the most common use case... view reply
  • buraddo added a new discussion topic What created this value? in the group Elgg Technical Support
    I have an interesting problem that is being caused by a value in the table "elgg_private_settings". A large percentage of my groups have a value of "0" for the name "elgg_default_access". The groups that are...
    • The value 0 for the setting means that the default access level for the content created inside the group will be private (only the person who created it can see it).

      Elgg core doesn't have that feature by default, so it must have been added by some third-party plugin (most likely by group_tools).

      Does it matter that some groups have different default access level? After all it can be changed when creating content.

      If you were to remove the values manually from the database, how would you prevent it from getting saved there again?

    • Consistency matters for a UI.. People expect a certain behaviour across the whole site. My particular group of people are not very technology savvy and the less they need to touch the better. So I want defaults to be the most common use case (i.e. publish the object and send the notification). This is particularly important when the creator of an object does not get notification, someone could easily think the discussion or other object was notified to others and in fact it was not.

      Its cool. I think I understand which combination of settings creates the entry. I think its a bug, but I believe its in group_tools. Need to do some more fiddling to isolate the conditions.

    Seems like if there is a value in the "elgg_private_settings" table for the entity_guid associated  with the group and a name elgg_default_access and a corresponding value of "0" then the default access is...

    Anyone found a solution for v1.9 and above to customize the subject of a notification with the new Notification system. I saw Matt was not updating his notification_subjects plugin for v1.9 as his current projects are 1.8. Brad

  • buraddo replied on the discussion topic Can Anyone Please Help Me Out?
    The problem is most likely at the system level. As mentioned, it could be a problem accessing MySQL or a filesystem full problem or an apache config error.. The failure mode is too generic to understand in detail. Cpanel is normally just the... view reply

    Maybe some more information about how you are hosting elgg.. Who is the hosting provider ? What sort of access do you have?  Brad view reply

    Is your install configured for http or https ? All the 443 error seem to point towards attempting access https but is looks like your install is only configured for http.. It looks like your config is not consistent.. Brad view reply
