  • praxmatrix added a new discussion topic Using lightbox and accordians etc in embedded Elgg site in the group General Discussion
    Hi, We have wrapped Elgg around an elearning site after a client asked for a social media site to 'front' the elearning site that we had already developed. We are using: require_once("../ac/engine/start.php"); Problem...
    • UPDATE:

      Sorry, we have got the lightbox to work in the embedded pages. We realised that with YouTube you need to put the embed URL into the href field and that any local calls to photos have to resolve to the same folder that Elgg is installed in... Only problem now is to resize the lightbox when displaying content like websites.

      We would still appreciate some guidance with the second problem of querying a user's metadata from the elearning site. We have, as noted, their user GUID but can't seem to get the meta data such as 'country', 'firstname' etc 

    • Problem 1:

      The Lightbox CSS and JS must be loaded before you can use a lightbox. You have included the corresponding elgg_load_js / elgg_load_css lines above but they are commented out. If they are also commented out in your test code, you have to change that. Also, try 'link_class' instead of 'class' (especially if you try it on Elgg 1.9 already). I also had the problem that 'class' failed to work but 'link_class' worked (on Elgg 1.9 while 'class' worked on Elgg 1.8). You can also try

      'link_class' => 'elgg-button elgg-button-action elgg-lightbox'

      to get the default Elgg button layout.

      Problem 2:

      I guess the access level of the metadata is logged-in. So, you won't get the corresponding data when logged-out by default. You can turn off access level restrictions by

      $access = elgg_set_ignore_access(true); // turn off access level restrictions

      <now fetch the data and do what you want with it>

      elgg_set_ignore_access($access); // restore access level restrictions

    • Does this existing elearning site also have a PHP Sessions-based login? If so, there's no safe way to use the Elgg engine in the same request.

  • praxmatrix commented on the plugin Widget Manager
    Is there a way to have all of the the widget boxes closed when a user opens their page and only the friends widget open and appearing at the top of the widget list?
