    Hi John, have you disabled the default Captcha plugin ?
  • tachyon added a new discussion topic Elgg web services in the group Feedback and Planning
    Hello, all!As part GSoC 2011, I will be implementing some web services using the Elgg API. As I wrote about in my blog post these web services can be used to develop third party software for any Elgg-based website. In the later stages of the project...
    • My requests:
      • like/unlike
      • comment
      • post to messageboard
      • deleting entities
      • Reporting content
    • I know it's not explicitly listed, but fetching content is of course very necessary -- getting users, wire posts, messageboard posts, files, blogs, etc...

    • Bump to retrieving users, posts etc - including search results. With the proviso that it must be done with (and optionally, I guess, without) authentication.

      As a matter of related interest, we are working on trying to create authenticated RSS feeds for this purpose, using HTTP authentication so that standard RSS readers and aggregators can get the content - is anyone else trying this?

    Hi, I am Saket Saurabh (Tachyon), a final year undergraduate student of Computer Science and Engineering at Institute of Technology, Banaras Hindu University. Banaras Hindu University is located in Varanasi, India and is the largest residential...
    • Interesting GSoC project. I will be watching quite closely ;) The Web Services (REST) functionality provided by Elgg seems to have been rather under-utliized and not matured very much - unless there has been private and unreleased development going on. I played around some with the XMP-RPC interfaces in the earlier days of Elgg (circa v.1.2/5). I look forward to the results from this project. If you look into SOAP/WSDL interfaces to the REST facility - that will open Elgg up to even broader perspectives..

    • LOLZ so little public interest in such a powerful new feature which we will soon see - which will propel Elgg into a new social networking era..

      C'mon y'all ? You all have been crying for this angle for about 2 years back ! and now.... silence ? Come here and give some show of support and the sense of our anticipations...

      And have you read of his recent technical achievements  at http://saketsaurabh.in/ ??

  • tachyon commented on the plugin Math Captcha
    I guess you didn't disable the existing captcha plugin. A quick solution to that might be removing or renaming the plugin directory for captcha or mathcaptcha
  • tachyon commented on the plugin Math Captcha
    yes, you are on the write track. Just disable any other Captcha plugin if already using any.
