    • I hope someone can answer this for me.

      Anyone know how to remove 3rd party plugins ? Just deleting them from the cPanel will not remove them from the list.

    • Possible options

      1. disable them

      2. http://docs.elgg.org/wiki/Disable_plugin

      3. delete their directories

    • Thank you Cash,
      Last night I had deleted the 3rd party plugins from my cPanel yet they still showed up in my admin plugin list. This morning I look at my cPanel mod/ folder again and they were back again. So I deleted them again and this time I was able to remove them from the list. It was weired, I am not sure what happened.

      Still, knowing to put that disabled file in the mod/ directory is a handy piece of information.

      Thanks.

    • @Mettam You are running too fast

      "I spent a LOOOOOOOONG time trying to wrap my head around the distinction between the Front Page (aka Main Page, aka Index) and the Dashboard. Oy. Make sure you absolutely got that distinction down before trying to "fix" stuff."

      as you yourself tell you have no idea of php or coding... get a basic idea of the elgg structure first, play with it for sometime before starting to change things, I believe you got it

    • Stephen I totaly understand what you mean. I am trying to make a distinction between Dashboard and the area underneath the profile icon (probably the profile page).

      It seems that the same widgets can be placed in boh these area, therefore they could both server the same purpose.

      Can someone explain why we have a Dashboard and then that other area (Icon profile page)

    • Mettam, I'm new here, but I'd I think the Dashboard is where you control and view the activities that you are interested in. The profile page is for other people to learn more about you. These people have no access to your dashboard.
