  • daniyaree added a new discussion topic Editing Blog Date and Calendar View of Blog in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hi all, I am looking (searching) for a code snippet or plugin or mod (almost anything) that would allow to edit the date of a blog post. This helps n altering the order of published blog posts, among other things. Also, is it possible to have a...
    • Entity tools and Blog tools plugins by ColdTrick can help you with date.

      I'm not sure but you can try Event calendar plugin to take a code snippet for calendar view.

  • daniyaree added a new discussion topic Upgrading from Elgg 2x to 3x in the group Elgg Technical Support
    I am speaking here primarily about Elgg Upgrade from 2x to 3x, just default installations of BOTH, no extras, nothing else. I have seen this and http://learn.elgg.org/en/2.0/admin/upgrading.html but is there any better textual or pictorial (like...
    • I have moved from manual install to composer install and it has saved me lot of time for all the major or minor version update. All I need to do now is run "composer updated" via terminal and my elgg gets updated to the latest version. Once updated I would run the sites upgrade and it will take care of all the migration part. I would recommend that one should move from manual install to composer.

      So now to answer your questions:

      Is there any better textual or pictorial (like wikihow) manual?

      No, I don't think there is any pictorial manual. None that I am aware of.

      what does "remove any files that were removed from Elgg core" mean? - how do I know which files? Is there a list of these files (url?)?

      it simply means that remove all files and folder except your settings.php file and copy the new files and folder after you have removed them. This will ensure that any files that was removed does not exists as those files will not be there in the new zip file.

      Now if I visit upgrade.php will I not be having a completely changed (=elgg3x) interface as I have already removed all 2x files (including themes)

      You have to visit "Admin" > "Upgrades". This will show you the list of changes required for 3.x migration. All you need to do is click a button to start the upgrade.

      Also what happens to the database? Is there any learn.elgg doc?

      Nope, there is no such list. But if you want you can refer to the upgrades php files and analyze the code to understand what changes are being done at the database level. Example: https://github.com/Elgg/Elgg/blob/3.3/engine/schema/migrations/20191015125417_set_river_enabled_to_yes.php (In this file - It was included on 2019-10-15 and from the code I can say the enabled column of the river table was set to a value "yes" where it was "no")

      Between version changes for example from 2x to 3x or say from 3.x.x to 3.x.y are there any learn. elgg org that lists the names of files changed

      Yes, all changes are tracked here - http://reference.elgg.org/3.x/md_CHANGELOG.html or you can also use these as well https://github.com/Elgg/Elgg/tree/master/docs/appendix/upgrade-notes

      So,  all files and folder except settings.php is REMOVED, that's what I was wandering about.
      However, do I stay in browser on Elgg2x/upgrade.php and hit  Elgg2x/upgrade.php or REFRESH and go to Elgg3x/upgrade.php and do this? Really sorry, if I am sounding dumb. I think RvR says to stay on old-site/upgrade while in the background all files and folders are new. What pops in my mind are two questions:

      - what happens to aalborg theme? it upgrades?
      - what happens to db tables - does the upgrade script deals only with database (as files and folders are already manually changed)?
      I know I can test run everything but connectivity is so slow or nil at the moment, even elgg org is throwing back error repeatedly : 504 Gateway Time-out nginx/1.10.3 (Ubuntu)

      I have read some manual on composer install - legacy zip install seems easier to me, but would like to know how easily composer install can be done (and whether it changes db tbales also), and can it done via Cpanel etc - any pointers to easy, pictorial guides or guides with examples? Many thanks.

  • RSS feed is not showing normal, formatted web pages as it used to in previous versions of Elgg. With default and fresh install (no other plugins) of Elgg 3.3.5 I am getting the following at  ... elgg/blog/owner/user1?view=rss This XML file...
    • It's not a bug. It's just that browsers no longer support stylized RSS.

      Try out it on Elgg 2... You'll see same "problem".

  • Have I been on a time machine :) Thanks for the information. CSV export does that, but it seems to export contents (example all blogs) rather than Users (blogs written by one specific user) but I may be wrong. I will install that and check. view reply
  • What is the url of your website? will be happy to check. view reply
  • First of all, I think this question was asked before. Myself or some-one else, but I am not finding now how can I make it work for Elgg 3.5.5. The issue is this : suppose an user asks to export all his data in sql file or csv or text (not images,...
    • Forget about it and NEVER share SQL files from your DB.

      Look at some plugins/options in plugins by ColdTrick (hint: CSV export).

      And please stop to bomb Elgg 3.5.5, we've 3.3.5 yet ;)

  • daniyaree added a new discussion topic Individual database table size in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Several hosts limit your database table size (one individual table) to 1 GB or less. They will not mind if you have 100 or unlimited tables each of half GB but if one table surpasses 1 GB, your account gets locked. This usually does not happen with...
    • Several hosts limit your database table size (one individual table) to 1 GB or less.

      I'm surprised you still use such hostings.

      Google in 'VPS' instead of 'shared'.

      You can enable/disable DB query cache in elgg-config/settings.php:

      $CONFIG->db_disable_query_cache
