        • hmmmmm, this is some thing good, but to do of those that are not published yet. :)

      • itmanvn replied on the discussion topic Cropping tool not work in IE8 in the group Elgg Technical Support
        Tried to use jquery.imgareaselect-0.8.js but still not work. Any one can help me? http://odyniec.net/projects/imgareaselect/
        • I should say the problem could not be the IE8 or the JQuery version. I think the problem is the entire Elgg procedure for creating the avatar has too many bugs and it has no error control at all. I tried to fix it, but I ended rewriting it almost completely, including views and actions.

          I could give you an example. The script declares six vars, $x1, $y1, $x2, $y2, $w and $h. Later, it asigns them values from non existent elements, and, using an wrong jquery syntax. Ok, this looks very bad. But, don't worry, those vars are never used after that! :)

          It looks like it was made using trying and error and when it worked in some way, it was left as is.

          I could provide my code if you want, but unfortunately it uses the latest versions of JQuery and ImgAreaSelect, and the wiew is related to my template.

          Sorry is something could sound impolite, it's not my intention and English is not my language, but I am a bit dissapointed with a certain oversight I found in many pieces of Elgg code. Without changing this, I think Elgg could not become a mature platform.

          I would like to know what do you think about.

          Regards

      • itmanvn replied on the discussion topic Controlling Homepage in the group Elgg Technical Support
        I am fairly new to Elgg, but the learning curve is coming along slowly. What I still don't quite understand is how to control the content on the front page. I don't need to overwrite it to make a custom one, but I would like to somehow control which...
        • Umm, I said it was a premium version. Yes, there is a demo version too, but after reading the following paragraph, I figured the demo wouldn't work for what I am trying to do.

          "The version uploaded here is a demo version. It has limit of 2 widgets per column, and won't save the content of your HTML widgets. In the full version, available here for 20$, you'll be able to add any HTML content in between your widgets. There will be no limit of number of widgets you can place in any column."

          To clarify "..take precedence over the higher.." and "conflicts".

          Rememer what I said ==> "OOP , Objects, Classes, Override, Extend". If you're not familiar with these BuzzWords - google for tutorials and you'll get a better idea. Elgg *is a platform/ Object/ Class ==> and we code to override and/or extend functionality. As one gets to know Elgg better and more intimately.. we learn to understand and appreciate that power.

          There are no real "conflicts: per se... but rather simply mis-behaved PlugIns which cause problems which may re-use funtions names or global variables and.... poooffff !!! ;-(

          • Put the PlugIns you are more interested in at the *bottom.
          • Do not activate too many PlugIns just for the heck of it - if you don't really want it don't enable.
          • Try and test one PlugIn at a time.. slowly, carefully.. so that you will know immediately if on is gonna stuff up yr site

          I've seen this happen many, many times... ;-)

        • I am seeing this question over and over. But no answer.

          Is it a big secret?

          Common??? Tell us how to hack without all these plugins.

        • Hi all, this should works

          Edit mod/custom_index/views/default/canvas/layouts/new_index.php, add the following where you want the pictures to show up

          <?php
              if(is_plugin_enabled('tidypics')){
                  $photos = get_entities('object', 'image', 0, 0, 12, false, false);
                  if(isset($photos)) {
                      echo '<div class="index_box">';
                      echo '<h2>'.elgg_echo("Latest images").'</h2>';
                      $counter = 0;
                      echo '<div class="frontpage_tidypics_box">';
          ?>
                      <!-- display latest photos -->
                     
                      <?php
                          foreach ($photos as $photo) {
                              $counter +=1;
                              if ($counter == 7){
                                  $counter = 0;
                                  echo "</div>";
                                  echo '<div class="frontpage_tidypics_box">';
                              }
                              echo "<div class=\"tidypics_index\">";
                              echo elgg_view("custom_index/tidypics/icon", array(
                                      'mimetype' => $photo->mimetype
                                      ,'thumbnail' => $photo->thumbnail
                                      ,'file_guid' => $photo->guid
                                      ,'link' => $photo->getUrl()
                                      ,'size' => 'small'
                                  ));
                              echo "</div>";
                          }
                      ?>
                          </div>
                      </div>
          <?php
                  }
              }
          ?>

           

        • This Code works for me perfectly:

          <?php
              }
             
                  if (is_plugin_enabled('tidypics')) {
          ?>
              <!-- display latest photos -->
                  <div class="index_box">
                      <h2><a href="<?php echo $vars['url']; ?>pg/photos/world/"><?php echo elgg_echo("Najnowsze Zdięcia"); ?></a></h2>
                      <div class="contentWrapper">
                      <?php
                          echo tp_get_latest_photos(12);
                      ?>
                      </div>
                  </div>
