    Thank you. I'll use your advice.  Not shure if or what's gonna change for the Wire-Activity River in Elgg 4 but this should make it there not being some heavy coding but very usefull, though. view reply

    @RvR Thank you for the reply. Hope I can manage to make those changes. Everyone here thinks everyone else is a developer too, but you'l be surprised by how many non-devs look at Elgg as a great choice for it's ease of use. Minus these... view reply

    Had 3 attempt to use Elgg for acommunity site and this was one of the main reasons that always pushed me back.  Replies on the wire are shown completelly different than, for example a blog with nested comments or Facebook. I write something....

      Basically all I had were 2 issues regarding Elgg. The upload plugin that let almost any kind of file upload. And fixed that last time I tried to use Elgg, editing one plugin file. And this one, where I'm not shure where to edit besides thewire.php. Or exactly what. And I'd just be happy to find a "fix" and start using Elgg.

    • I meant if you want the non-standard features then you should learn to develop as well but not be a "help vampire" (on your reply).

      Regarding your question use this snippet:

      $reply = $entity->reply;
      
      if ($reply) {
            $class = 'reply_class';
      } else  {
           $class = 'no_reply_class';
      
      } 
      
      $params = [
           'title' => false,
           'tags' => false,
           'access' => false,
           'icon_entity' => $entity->getOwnerEntity(),
           'class' => 'thewire-post ' . $class,
      ];
       
      It will check if post is a reply or not and add your custom classes.
       
      You should use it in the object\thewire.php which need to copy to your custom plugin with same paths:
      mod\your_plugin\views\default\object\thewire.php
       
      You should add your classes in your custom style file and then extend it.
       
      Your plugin must be placed after thewire plugin on the Administration -> Plugins page.
       
      You can use my skeleton plugin for Elgg 3 to quick start.

    Just started to make friends with Elgg and I'm not too familiar of how things work here and there. When I post something to the wire and after that I want to reply to that post, the response is not posted under it( as le's say facebook)...
    • Digging into Elgg a little more it looks to me like a very good platform. Almost wordpress like user friendly. But, I guess, it's aimed more at developer user that can fix some of that platform features to output a decent comunnity site with Elgg. 

      An user registered on my future site would be pretty confused not seing his reply under the wire post it replied to but after it with no apparent connection to the parent post. Also this feature on a site with 100 users from wich at least 30 post and reply in a hour, would get even more annoing.

      Also confusing is the existence of both the wire page and all site activity page that is a river without the posting form.

       

    • But, I guess, it's aimed more at developer user

      But you ask as developer so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

      Look at some existing plugins by hypeJunction: 1, 2, 3

      Search. Learn. Try.

      I'm sure that after learning Elgg you will be able to create similar sites 1, 2 with customized TheWire in the future.

    • I didn't said I'm a developer, nor didn't know this is a developer area of the forum.

      For me Elgg looks like a good framework for it's purpose but with some confusing bits here and there. Started with the 3.0 and they aren't any plugins for it yet, free or paid that could eventually help me solve my issue.

      Doing it myself... I just managed to fix the feature that let users upload viruses on the site. Stopping the extra page loads on every wire comment, and putting the comments under the parent post, it's a little more complicated than that. I'll look at the documentation and hypejunction plugin to figure out something. 

  • ckubs replied on the discussion topic Elgg 3.0 default theme
    @iionly Thank you. I managed to make a plugin to override default CSS. Now I only need to find the file that holds default variables like $(border-color-soft) to make colours change simpler and I guess that's it. view reply
