Did You Know for Elgg 1.8

Did you know box with random information for the sidebars: event calendar, groups.

Last updated 433 days ago

This is a really simple plugin. It is a sidebar module that has little pieces of information for new users. The idea came from the File Tools plugin. But that was only for that plugin, and it would be better if it could be for any plugin. So far, this works with the Groups and Event Calendar plugins.

The site I work on is English/French so it will be good for multiple languages later on.

Thanks to Matt Beckett for the help: http://community.elgg.org/discussion/view/1169408/extend-view-priority

The tips are random and you won't see the same tip twice in a row if there are more than 10 tips. But if there are less than 10 tips, they show up in order.

Release Notes:

To customize the tips that show up, check out 'languages/en.php' for instructions.

To Do:

  • Add an admin panel to make it a lot easier to use and customize.
  • Add more plugins.
  • Figure out what else to do to make it better.
