  • Rho commented on the plugin Group Operators
    Should additional group operators be notified via email of group requests? I believe that currently only the group creator is emailed, and operators have to manually check the requests within the group itself.
  • Rho added a new discussion topic Group discussion - set access topic post in the group Elgg Technical Support
    It may just be late in the day... but is there anyway way to set all discussion posts to the group that the user is in, so that whenever a new topic post is made within a group only those group members can see it, or do they have to chose from the...
    • I guess Elgg has made things too powerful and flexible. You could grab the addtopic action and override the access level with the owning group's access, and maybe even remove the access input selects from the form. Not too much coding involved there.

    • I wouldn't recommend upgrading to 1.7.1 while you have this problem. Better to correct ir first. Elgg 1.6 used metadata (rather than a user attribute) to indicate that a user is admin. Your best option is to write a plugin that does something like Dhruva is suggesting:

      • Register user
      • Write a plugin that gets the user using username or guid or whatever
      • Set the admin metadata to true
    • Thanks guys, much appreciated.  I'll start looking into your suggestions this afternoon.
