  • madd69 commented on the plugin Google Adsense and Analytics 1.8
    Works great for my purposes with one exception. Clicking on an ad takes the user away from my site to the advertiser site instead of opening the ad site in a new window or tab. For obvious reasons I don't want to re-direct traffic away from my own...
  • madd69 commented on the plugin Westors Elgg Manager
    @Samad - I'm relatively new to elgg and still learning php (not reccommended as it can be confusing learning both at the same time) but what you propose would be extrememly useful in most any application of elgg that I can think of. User admins on...

    The 'login as' plugin most assuredly allows admins to read users messages. I tested it just yesterday.
  • madd69 commented on the plugin Westors Elgg Manager
    @Samad - The 'login as' plugin will allow an admin to manage other users accounts if the need arises but as Dhrup says, you have to be very careful with that and make certain it is clearly spelled out in your terms of service so as to eliminate any...
  • madd69 added a new discussion topic Basic functions not found in elgg? in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Definite newbie here. Went from having never heard of elgg 3 weeks ago to putting together a feature rich site in that short time. I'm very impressed with the sheer number of plugins available. That said there are several functions that seem common...
    • DhrupDeScoop...wasn't intended as a critique. They are just things I haven't come across that seemed (to me) to be basic features on a social network. It very well could be that I just don't know what I'm doing or where to look ;-) So was hoping if this stuff is out there someone could point me in the right direction to look for it.

    • NOT Taken as negative critique...

      Oki I think 1/2 of the stuff is floating around in some PlugIns.. Some of the listed features just doan exist - so gotta code the shtz ;-)

      A quick thought for 1: Jeroen Dalsem's profile counter plugin. Currently shows the count on the settings tab but wouldn't take you much to program it to show on the profile page by adding a new profile view page. (Indeed you "gotta code the shtz".) 8 could be in the same view as join date is stored in the database so a direct call would solve that ($user->time_created), maybe 1 or 2 lines of code. For the other I suggest taken a look at the rivercomments plugin I think it was called? Maybe that can be easily  extended with a counter. For how to do that you could take a look at how Jeroen did it in the profile counter plugin and copy/paste that and edit it to do what you want. If you got this far in only three weeks this shouldn't be too much work for you.
