  • wektis created a page What I learnt today
    Another overly simple thing, but being new to elgg and relatively new to coding etc took me litteraly all day (12 hours) to figure out!! The easiest way to edit the .html output of your elgg installation ie to modify the...
    • Something I learned: php doesn't have an end tag like html </html> that tells it to stop reading the page. It is possible to add scripts to the end of a PHP file (such as the footer) and they will load and run fine....

    • Allowing arbitrary insertion of iframes (or javascript) is very insecure and by default Elgg will filter them out.  What is usually done in this case is something similar to an SQL prepared query.  You have an input box for the user to enter his character's name (or id, or however the iframe's address differentiates the characters) and upon output display the hard-coded URL with the character name inserted into the correct spot.

      For the second question, change the input type from longtext to text and it will not have TinyMCE.
