    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 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.

      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.

    @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

    I want to use Elgg for a community site. Installed version 2.3 but shortly after that thought, since the site is in the project phase, that I should go with the new 3.0.  How do I edit/ customise the default theme on Elgg 3.0? The theme is...
    • Elgg 3 comes with the theme as part of its core engine and no longer as a separate (bundled) plugin. On Elgg 2 the default theme was implemented in the same way only that the Aalborg theme came as an additional theme plugin that was bundled and was more or less the de-facto default theme due to providing a more modern look and other features.

      For customizing the look and feel of Elgg 3 you would have to create a plugin on your own (at least for the moment there are no compatible theme plugins available that you could use as starting point). Most likely you would start by adding some of the core css files (from the core view folder) to your plugin to be able to change the look of the site as these modified css views would then override the Elgg core css files. Some info about creating themes can be found at http://learn.elgg.org/en/3.0/guides/themes.html.

    • @ckubs You can find all global CSS variables in engine/theme.php

      To add or alter variables, read docs
