  • Hello All, I want my elgg site to be able to add a registered user by default to all groups. That is he need not go and join group. When he/ she registers, he should be present in all groups and be able to reply to all discussions. How can I...
  • Yash added a new discussion topic Message reply button not working in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hello All, I just created a plugin that changes only the UI of my elgg website. I have not changed any functions with respect to message function. But after I activate the plugin, the text section is not appearing below the message when...
    • The reply form has the id "messages-reply-form" and gets toggled (shown/hidden) on a click on the reply button. But there's no css style defined for this id as far as I know. So, changing the look of the site only shouldn't result in a problem.

      Without knowing what you have changed exactly it's difficult to give an pointers about what might be the problem. My only suggestion would be to debug the issue by reducing the number of changes to narrow down which modification causes the problem. So, proceed step by step starting with no actual changes in your plugin and then add only a part of the modifications at a time to find out when it starts to fail.

  • Yash added a new discussion topic Pull popular group names from elgg in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hello, I am trying to pull the popular group names and display in my site.  What I am trying to do is ": require_once('../elgg/vendor/autoload.php'); \Elgg\Application::start(); /**  * Renders a list of groups...
    • Check the error log for relevant entries. In require_once() you have a relative path. Depending on the location of the file of your code the relative path might be wrong.

      The code as such looks right. Without knowing how you implement it exactly, I can't say if the way you do it is right or not. For example, if you add your code in a view of an Elgg plugin you wouldn't need to boot the Elgg engine explicitely. The best way to proceed also depends on what you want to achieve in the first place. If you want to add the output of popular groups on the index/home page of your Elgg site, you would rather add the code for example to the view of the index page.

    Hi, I was trying to add attachment in the post reply for discussion. For this I installed hypeattachment and hypewall, which are in turn dependent on a plugin called File. Can you please let me know whats the correct procedure to attach a file /...
    • Thanks, Ismayil

      I do have hypeNotifications installed :) However, when I try the 'send test email' function of hypeNotifications, with an attachment, the attachment doesn't arrive - so perhaps I have another issue going on...

      So, to pass the attachment to the email function of HypeNotifications, would I simply include

      notify_user($to, $from, $subject, $body, $attachment);


      ...in the mail action of grouptools? ...not having any success with that...:(
      Thank you again... I'm learning.... slowly...

    • From hypeNotifications readme: 

      File Attachments

      To add attachments to your email, add an array of ElggFile objects to notification parameters:

      notify_user($to, $from, $subject, $body, array(
      	'attachments' => array(
      		$file1, $file2,
      	)
      ));
    • Thanks :) Which I've done.... but how to do I retrieve $file1, $file2 etc to make this array?

      Once again, thank you for your patience...

  • Yash added a new discussion topic Calendar showing year dropdown only till 2001 in the group Elgg Technical Support
    Hello, In my profile page of elgg, my calendar year dropdown only shows years till 2007, how can I fix this issue? Suppose I want to enter my year of birth as 1996, I am unable to as the scroller for year stops at 2007 only. How can I fix...
    • Should be an easy fix, the date input can have configurable options passed to it and the year range is one of those options.

      You can create a date of birth input by just wrapping the date view 

      $vars['datepicker_options'] = [
       
      'yearRange' => (date('Y') - 120) . ':' . date('Y')
      ];

      echo elgg_view('input/date', $vars);

    • Thanks @Matt, 

      But where can I edit / insert this line of code, in which file / file path?

    • As I already wrote in my first posting, this input field is not provided by Elgg core. So, you use some 3rd party plugin that adds it. Without knowing what plugins you use, how should we be able to point you to the file? Give at least the info which plugin adds the birthday field.
