    Thanks very much rjcalifornia.  Are you referring to this one: Registration by Invitation By nend 2666 days ago   Do you know if it will work with 3.3.1?   That would be sweet if it would!  Tom view reply

    I am planning a private elgg site and am wondering if there are different ways to set up the registration. The plan is to have people join a wordpress site and to open registration to the Elgg site only to those who join the wordpress...

    iionly!  Thank you!  Those two plugins did the trick.  It's a simple admin task to turn users into moderators who then have editing/deleting ability with published posts.  Exactly what I was looking for.  I wish there... view reply

    Elgg 3.3.1 is the present version.  I used the Roles plugin that you had recommended in the above post link https://elgg.org/plugins/847275 Have not been able to determine the error message.   view reply

    Thanks for this.  I tried installing the Roles plugin and when I tried to activate it crashed the system and left me this error.   Exception at time 2020-03-07T11:44:40-05:00. Any ideas? Tom   view reply

    Is there a way to make certain users moderators and allow them to do things like having the ability to edit other users? I have searched and found references to moderators but most of those are 10 years old. Is there something available now or...
    • The readme for the plugin you recommend above states the following:

       
      "As of this version, there is no user-friendly way to create or configure roles on your Elgg installation with this plugin.
      "

       

      Considering I am not a developer I don't think this one will work for me.,  Any other alternatives?

    • The Roles plugin is indeed just a framework that does not provide a user-friendly way to define specific roles. That what the Roles UI plugin tries to provide. So, you should try to test them both together.

      I never used any of the Roles plugin before so I can't give any specific advice that might help further. There were some other plugins adding functionality to the Roles plugin framework and I think there was even a Roles Moderator plugin among them. I don't know if it's still of any use on Elgg 3. Maybe it is.

      Another option might be to take a look at these two plugins: https://github.com/hypeJunction/Elgg3-hypeModerator and https://github.com/hypeJunction/Elgg3-hypeCapabilities. Ismayil has stopped providing support for his plugins though. Before he retired he released a lot of his plugins for Elgg 3 though - only available on github - and maybe these two plugins offer some roles functionality (I've not checked if there are even more plugins on his account that might be of use regarding roles functionality and working on Elgg 3).

    • iionly!  Thank you!  Those two plugins did the trick.  It's a simple admin task to turn users into moderators who then have editing/deleting ability with published posts.  Exactly what I was looking for.  I wish there was some way to identify them as mods but that is not a necessity.  I can recommend they add that to their usernames.

      Thank you very much!

    Very Helpful iionly!  Once you mentioned the language chosen I checked to see what language the user had chosen and it was "Catalan."  I switched it to english and all is well!  It now prints perfectly what was intended.... view reply
