    • @ Slen Dot Net Slen Dot Net , Welcome home from Oxwall land. Here in the community you can search for community plugins and look for plugins that can accomplish your goal and if you can not find one, then with the help of the community you can seek for help and then try and keep your hands dirty "try coding" in order to learn how Elgg works.
