    Concerning the multiple elements with this same ID — There is no special theme used, the version: 4.2.2. I have modified the source codes quite often, but not in case of the comments – this is a new thing I am coming to. And... view reply

    Concerning the permissions to delete comments on one's article — The option to remove whatever undesirable stuff posted on one's content would be in line with how Facebook functions, for instance. Anyway, it seems I will not try to... view reply
  • Avinty Lanaikey added a new discussion topic comments section in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Let me share this fresh experience of using the comments feature and ask for advice where possible. I mean comments to the Blog, Pages etc. – generic, somewhat hardcoded functionality.   ∗ Permissions to delete comments on...

    Actually, one functionality of Tidypics Image Embed was to be modified. It shows all images from all users to select for embedding, which may be confusing. This should be limited to the current user's images. Solution — in the... view reply

    Very good! The plugin Tidypics Image Embed functions all right. Even usable with this version 4.2.2 – just enough to change the version requirement in JSON.   view reply
  • Avinty Lanaikey added a new discussion topic Embedding images in the group Tidypics Photo Gallery Plugin
    Is(n't) there really any way to embed TidyPics images in user–generated contents? Blogs, pages, groups etc. One can't do it through embed:media to place in the text area. It's a major drawback which reduces the usability of this...
    • One (not comfortable) way to embed an image is to use the "Image" menu option of the editor bundled with Elgg (or the Extended Tinymce editor) where you could embed images by providing an image url. For a Tidypics image you can use the image url that is used by the Download image menu entry in the title menu displayed when viewing an image. Not intuitively...

      I've coded a simple plugin yesterday that would add a new tab to the bundled Embed popup where you can select the Tidypics image you want to embed in a posting. Right now it just lists all images available on the site. I guess not user-friendly with many images available. I can upload this plugin hopefully soon as it is. Maybe it can be used as a starting point to add some more options for embeding images, e.g. by search for image title or maybe even by adding a "Copy embed link" to Tidypics image pages and then offering a "Paste embed link" on the embed content popup.

    • Actually, one functionality of Tidypics Image Embed was to be modified.

      Solution —
      in the file:

      views/default/embed/tidypics_image_embed/tidypics_image_embed.php

      inside

      echo elgg_list_entities

      to add a condition on a new line:

      'owner_guid' => elgg_get_logged_in_user_guid(),

    In fact, I have studied plenty of documents, in this case e.g. these discussions and plugins related to the tabs, particularly concerning merges and removals of tabs, which could give a hint about the matter of the default tab... view reply
