    Invalid Admin Section.

  • rohonupe99 946 days ago

    Group Videos list is not showing when you click on the link within the group for the videos list. It does show the recent group videos on the group index page,

    imagea rel="nofollow" href="denied:"


    but when you click the  ALL VIDEOS link to list all videos uploaded to that group, the page shows no videos have been added:



  • Purus 945 days ago

    Even I got the "Invalid Admin Section." error but it went afte running the upgrade.php and refreshing the page once.


    It works fine for me in Firefox. But in the IE 7, the "more" drop down menu does not pop-out due to some issue in the iZap Video plugin.


    In the status bar Script Error Report of IE, I get the error message "'elgg' is undefined".

    Please help me on this.

    @all: Specially @rohonupe99. this revision is for elgg 1.8. I doubt, you are just mixing things.

    @massao: You might forget to register API for your domain at http://www.pluginlotto.com. You can find all instructions from README.txt and INSTALL.txt files.

    @Purus: I hope, you have cleared your cache once from elgg's admin panel. You can also simply delete caches from your data folder.

    I have a Inavlid Admin section error. 


    This the screenshot. Please help me

  • Purus 943 days ago

    Hi iZAP,

    Thanks for your response.  I am not sure how to delete the cache from admin panel. Anyhow I deleted the cache files/folders from the data folder.

    But still I am not able to see the menu pop-down in the "More" main menu in Internet Explorer.

    I guess some script of iZap vide plugin is collaiding with the menu.

    Please assist me. Thanks a lot.

  • Richard Hipkin 943 days ago

    I too have an invalid admin section.

  • i Z A P 942 days ago

    We are about to release new revision. I will consider to see all these issues in the new release.

    Thank you.

  • Purus 940 days ago

    Hope the issue related to CSS in IE also will be considered in the next release.

    The issue is with the iZAP ELGG Bridge 2.1 and if I disable it the "more" drop down menu is working fine.

  • i Z A P 929 days ago

    @Purus: I investgated "More" drop down issue. I found IE 8 has issues with this. I install fresh elgg and activated all default plugins. I am able to browse "More" menu in all other browsers except IE 8. Even IE 9 is working fine on Windows 7. So i believe, There is nothing to fix with izap elgg bridge 2.1 for this issue.

    Please confirm this once. Do not forget to remove cache (Browser and server level).
    Thank you. 

  • Purus 929 days ago

    Thanks for the update. Happy to hear that its not an issue with iZap.

    Thanks again.

    @iZAP: I don't know where the best place to discuss izap 3.9 for elgg 1.7.x, so I will post here, and if I should move it, please tell me, and I will.

    I have found a conflict between the plugin called Embed Extender and iZap 1.9. I don't understand what the problem is, but we have found the problem to be real.

    I wish that iZap would please take a look at this and see if there is anything that can be done. Here is some discussion...

    "@Ron... But we have a problem. The problem is, I think, with IZap´s. IZap strips some content, removing html tags in the "longtext" view. This approach can affect a lot of plugins. I recommend you to show this issue to IZap creator. I don´t see, for now, a solution in my code. Maybe some weird code hack, but I don't know how to resolve this issue for now.

    I repeat: Extend the "longtext" view is not a good approach. You loose control of embeded content, because this view is used in 99% of the site."

    This was from here ...


    Thank you for looking into this. We would like to use the both the Embed Extended and the iZap plugins. I eagerly await your reponse. Thank you.

  • Ray J 912 days ago

    Dear Izap, I am the creator of Embed Extender Plugin. After some tests, I saw that your plugin extends the "longtext" view, using a function to strip some html tags (Correct me if I am wrong). That view conflicts with embed extender, because I cannot embed my content.

    I think we have a scenario where the two plugins cannot be executed together. But I have limited ELGG skills, so, if possible, I want to work with you to resolve this issue.

    Best regards.

    Ray J

  • Ron Wallace 909 days ago

    @iZAP & @Ray J  Any movement on this issue? Any ideas? No ideas? I'd really like to use both Embed Extended and iZap Video on our sites. How can we may them play friendly with each other? Anyone?

  • Ron Wallace 906 days ago

    @iZAP & @Ray J - Pretty please.

  • e5foxer 900 days ago

    Hi, I am having a 'Video is queued up for conversion.' problem, it doesn't seem to change. I am running elgg 1.8 with settings as 'Activate youtube channel to handle uploaded videos.' and 'After conversion to flv, keep original file on server - No' any ideas?
