3.0 beta (2011-04-05):
I'm not sure what's wrong, but version 3.1 doesn't work for me at all. I only see broken widgets on profile pages and dashboard that contain a link named "ElggPlugin ()". By clicking on the link I see the database stats of the objects. I also can't configure default profile page and dashboard widgets as the same problem occurs there, too. Disabling site cache and running upgrade.php doesn't help either.
Are there any incompatibilties known or is it just my bad luck that I don't get this great plugin working - not it the new version and unfortunately also never without issues in the past either?
It seems that the broken widgets being displayed with the version 3.1 of Widget Manager are due to the Widget Manager not recognizing any other plugins as being active. Does anyone else has the same problem or does it work for you? What could cause this issue? Is there any incompatibility known?
Works fine, but one error:
Using the RSS widget will destroy the view. Because in
the ">" sign of the div is missing:
$body .= "<div class='widgets_rss_feed_item'";
$body .= "<div class='widgets_rss_feed_item'>";
However, I see a '/' used in the id's of some divs. I don't think they were there before I enabled the plugin. Problem with using a forwardslash is that it won't validate as valid XHTML.
Could I simply replace these names (and in the CSS probably), or do the slashes have a specific purpose somewhere?
Love the plugin. I ran into a bug with it, permissions on some of the group page widgets can't be saved. I'm trying to make all the widgets public. Tracking it down, it looks like the widget_type_exists() call within the save_widget_info() function in engine/lib/widgets.php is failing on the save. nofollow is set, so you don't see the failure, it just dies quietly. So far I have been able to save on the group activity and the pages widgets, but cannot seem to set the events or the files permissions to public. Frustrating.
widget_type_exists("group_event_calendar") just doesn't seem to work.
Hope that makes sense.
I did find the add_widget_type for it in mod/widget_manager/widgets/group_event_calendar/start.php. Maybe that's somehow not getting called within the save process?
Help! Any ideas?
