  • nikos released a new version of the plugin News Plugin
    • Hello Sir,

      I am just wondering if you could implement category for your news plugin. The "Category" Menu should be be visible on the front end, when a news post is being prepared. Category should have a pull down menu from where a category can be chosen - like - Sports
                                                                      Weather
                                                                      Breaking News
                                                                      Developing News
      Kindly please take a look at this link on my site where the category is searchable, but you can map or point each category to an array of pre-loaded images from a "categoryimage" image container it would be really cool. 

      https://www.myhotfb.com/code_test/newscategory.php 

      But if this complicates things I would request you the following at min:

      On the configuration / back side you have declared the news icon as "static" (using this term for a lack of better word), where choosing an image icon would result in automatic change for all the previously posted news.  



      So rather than having it there why not make a small change on the front end side 

      As shown in the above image for ur news plugin, you have a "Choose Photo Option". Can you make it point to a image container or just point to your plugin's existing folder  "graphics".

      This way every time we post a news we can choose appropriate news icon and as different people have different category requirements they can upload their images based on their needs.

    @Vagsiarom: the main reason that many plugins are not updated, at least speaking for myself, is the lack of time. I am trying to keep up to date as more plugins as possible but it's impossible to take care all of them. Even there are many...

    Yes. It's always better to use composer on remote server as well but you can try to upload and vendor changes as well. view reply

    I started playing with Elgg 3 and I tried to upgrade one of my plugins for making it compatible with Elgg 3, unfortunately without success, even I tried to use some core plugins as an example. Obviously something I didn't do right so when...
    • The plugin structure doesn't have to change, unless you want to take advantage of the new plugin Bootstrap interface or inject services. You can continue using start.php with event handlers. 

      Some of the areas to watch out for:

      - add_subtype() and update_subtype() have been removed, you should register entity classes at runtime using elgg-plugin.php

      - if you have written custom SQL queries for metastrings, you will most likely need to update them

      - make sure language files return an array and don't use register_translation()

      These are the 3 main areas that will cause failures in old plugins. There are many changes, but an average plugin won't need to do as much - unless you want to get rid of all the deprecation notices.

      If you don't see any errors in your logs, try changing config debug value in elgg-config/settings.php: $CONFIG->debug = 'WARNING';

    • Iionly linked to the documentation on github, but you can also view it in a somewhat more readable format here http://learn.elgg.org/en/3.x/appendix/upgrade-notes/2.x-to-3.0.html

      At the bottom left there is the option to switch between the different versions of Elgg for the correct documentation. Default is 'stable' (currently 2.3) if you switch to 3.x you'll get the documentation for Elgg 3.0.

      Like Ismayil said unless your plugin is doing some really special stuff it should work fine, (maybe with some deprecated notices but those are documented)

    • Thanks everybody for providing all this information

  • @just4fun: for Elgg 2.x you should use only the 2.11.1, which works fine if want to upload maps (kml or gpx file). But the functionality for creating maps online is not completed yet, that's why you probably get these errors. But you can disable... view reply
