  • Vagsiarom added a new discussion topic change friend_request in the group Beginning Developers
    Could someone give me a hint. I have the freind_request plugin installed on my network. However I needed to have installed another friend_request plugin, identical would only change translation. This is why I would use the second friend_request for...
    • Just changing the word friend_request in all plugin files would I be able to activate this second plugin?

      Bad idea.

      Just copy language file from 'another friend_request plugin' to 'friend_request plugin' instead.

      E.g.:

      from mod/another_friend_request/languages/pt_br.php
      to mod/friend_request/languages/pt_br.php

      In this case, you shouldn't install 'another friend_request plugin'.

       

      Or create a new plugin (you can use My plugin also) and repeat above step:

      from mod/another_friend_request/languages/pt_br.php
      to mod/my_plugin/languages/pt_br.php

      In this case, you should install my_plugin and move it at the bottom, after 'friend_request'.

    • It's not as simple as to just modify the language file if you want to make use of both the original friend_request plugin (more importantly: still keep the "friend" relationship in its original functionality in use) and a second "real_life_friends" plugin.

      Even if you would only want to offer the "real_life_friends" functionality replacing the meaning of just a "friends" relationship you would also have to override some language strings of Elgg core that also handle the friends functionality because the friends_request plugin only adds some additional functionality and modifies existing functionality of Elgg core respectively.

      If you would want to keep the original "friends" functionality unchanged (and also want to keep the friends_request plugin in use in parallel to your "real_life_friends" plugin) you could start with the friends_request plugin to create a clone. But in addition to changing the language file only you would also have to change for example the function names as they need to be unique. And you would have to introduce your own relationship (relationship name) as using the existing "friend" relationship would not work (and friend would be a "real_life_friend" if the relationship is handled by the same relationship name). As the friend_request plugin only adds some additional functionality (dealing with the creation and deletion of the friend relationship but nothing between), you most likely would have to clone/adjust some friend functionality of Elgg core, too (e.g. real_life_friend page, widgets etc.). It shouldn't be too difficult to get this done. It would just take some time. One point would be difficult though: access control. The friend relationship isn't just some "visual" thing (that would just show which user is friend with another user) but also is used as an access level to restrict access to content (or some functionality) to friends only. It would be much more complicated if "real_life_friends" should also have some specific access restrictions. If this is not intended and it's only meant to have some visual indication of who knows who beyond the scope of the site community it would make this much easier.

  • Vagsiarom commented on the plugin Suggested Friends Extended
    I wanted to know how to update these plugins, a lot of good things stayed in other versions.    
  • Vagsiarom commented on the plugin Suggested Friends Extended
    this plugin could be upgraded 2.3. Very important to define the suggestion.
  • could anyone give me a hint of this problem? give error when upgrade.php (Exception at time 1533127439) could anyone give me a hint of this problem?
    • The number is a unix timestamp tellung you when the error occured but not what the error is. The error gets logged though, so check the Apache error log and the php error log (if it's separate and not added to the Apache error log anyway). The number is also included in the log message, so you can search in the log for that number. As the location of the log is depending on the server configuration I can't tell you where it is saved (though the location might be displayed on the server info page in the admin area of your site). If you don't find the log, ask the support of your webhoster where it is saved. The log entry hopefully tells you what's wrong. If you don't understand the error message, post it here.
