    I moved the plugin up the list plugin list and it started working! So can't try this now, maybe it would have helped! The caches are disabled (if you mean the dev settings in the admin settings). Thanks for your help!  view reply

    Hi, I am writing an example-plugin as an excercise and so far I have only used elgg_view_extend('css/elgg', 'myplugin/css') like this. So as the first argument I passed elgg's core css. However, for some reason it didn't work this time and the css...

    I appreciate your help! For whatever reason it still won't fire with the event. Since this was only an excersise I will no longer waste my time on this. If it occurs again and I find the solution I'll post it here! :) view reply

    Hi, I am new to elgg plugin programming and I am currantly doing some small excercises that don't add any great functionality but more for practising reasons. I don't know what I am doing wrong here, I have been stuck on this for quite a while...
    • yeah, maybe elgg_dump isn't doing what you're expecting.  When in doubt, I use var_dump($var); exit; and blatantly interrupt the process to see what's going on.

    • The way you are using elgg_dump the error message would be displayed on the screen. This might be failing due to the debug settings on your site set in the admin section.

      Try

      elgg_dump("function called", false, 'NOTICE');

      This way the output gets added to the log file. Check if it is there. If not, the function quite surely does not get called (for whatever reason). If you see the log entry though, you know at least that it gets called and there's another reason it is not shown on the screen.
