  • romeovoid added a new discussion topic Send Users to Profile Page on First Login in the group Elgg Technical Support
    The default currently is for users to be sent to the Activity page when they log in. For the first time they log in, I'd prefer to send them to the Profile page so they can start editing their profile. Is it possible to do this?   I've tried...
  • I'd like to make the friends gallery and the friends icons that appear in the widget sortable -- so that the user can order/organize them and their state will be remembered. I know there is a lot of jQuery functionality built into Elgg so I'm...
  • romeovoid added a new discussion topic changing avatar size in the topbar in the group Elgg Technical Support
    How can I change the size of the avatar in the topbar? I tried overwriting the size in engine/lib/views.php. I'm using the default profile mod and saw that the image is called icondirect ... but I'm not sure if/how to overwrite it there either....

  • romeovoid added a new discussion topic User settings for widgets in the group Elgg Technical Support
    I'm having a problem with the user settings for widgets not being editable. For instance, on a user's Profile page, there is the Friends listings and when a user clicks on the settings gear, the editable panel opens and the options are there --...
    • Settings are different for each widget - some widgets simply have a single setting of "how many to display?" and access.  Some might simply have access and nothing else.

      The widgets you've mentioned sound like they're operating correctly.

    • I'm not sure if I understand you're problem correctly: can't you set the widgets options being shown or are you missing options you see on some widgets at other places? In case you can't set the options shown (for example number of items to display or access level) this surely is not how it should be. In this case maybe the theme you are using on your site (or some other plugin) is causing the trouble. In case you miss some options available for some widgets at other widgets: as Matt said, the different widgets might have simply different options. Often you can set the access level or the number of items to be displayed. Other options are more specific to a widget and wouldn't make sense on other widgets.

    • Thanks for your help. Yes, the problem is that the options shown can't be set by the user. For the user, on their profile page, all the options for the widget are there -- ie, 'how many to display' etc -- but there's no way to edit them. There aren't any dropdown selects or text fields to enter a number in. For instance, in the Friends widget it says, 'Icon size' but there's no way to select small, tiny, medium, etc or to enter a value.

      I'm not using any theme plugins. I'm just using the standard profile 1.8 editor. Any ideas what could be causing it or how to troubleshoot it?

      Thanks again for your help.
