    Next week i will be starting migrating this plugin to work for 1.8. So hopefully it will be finished before christmas :)

    Could you make one for 1.8? also, it would be cool for you to choose widget size

    @Sppedysnail6 Jeroen has already started working on 1.8 release. You can check the above comment.

    Thanks Jeroen! This is what Elgg needs! Elgg is great, but the homepage customisation is minimal. We need something that makes the frontpage looks neat. Something were we can put some genaral information as an introduction. Like a CMS.

    @jeroen this plugin helps me to set default widgets for all exsiting users.

    But when i view my profile page ie. as a user data are not loading into the widget instead to that only ajax loader gets loading and if i view other users profile page everything gets loads well

    And as a admin if i view my profile page i.e admin profile page widgets are loading fine with all datas.

    I couldnt find the exact solution to it. Can you please help me on it.
