    I'm getting a missing token ts fields after saving the flyer_setup.

    Using 1.7.1 on a LAMP (HostGator)

    Any thoughts?

  • Trajan 1360 days ago

    Apologies, this was caused by the IZAP plugin handing out missing tokens to all actions on the site. Flyers works fine.

    @Trajan: which version of the IZAP plugin is causing the token problem?

    when I set 'show the flyer only one time' to 'yes'.. 

    I am unable to change the setting back to 'no'.

    Pedro, this is nice, thanks! I found a potential bug: if you add content that contains line breaks, it will break your script's functionality with an "unterminated string literal" JS error. This is because you inject the content via the following javascript code:

    $('.lbHome .lightbox-content').html(<?php echo $vars['content'] ?>).addClass('flyer-content');

    And, of course, if the content contains line breaks, this will lead to the unterminated string literal error. I think a better approach is to put the content in a hidden div and read it from there. This is the change I did to handle content with line breaks correctly (views/default/flyer/flyer.php):

        <div id='flyer-content' style="display:none; visibility: hidden;">
            <?php echo $vars['content'] ?>

        <script type="text/javascript">
                function() {
                    var content = $('#flyer-content').html();
                    $('.lbHome .lightbox-content').html(content).addClass('flyer-content');

    i'm now using the later version of this plugin in elgg 1.7.6 and finding that i can insert a table into a flyer text body on my local install but not on my public site.. i have yet to find why.. the table is removed completely when i save the flyer content..

    any idea why? anyone?

    update: this was being caused by htmlawed.. disabling it stopped the issue..

    not sure why htmlawed is stripping tables out in one installation and not in another.. i'll keep looking

    Congratulations on your plugin works Elgg 1.7.9. Only it does not work if one added the text formatting such as bold or temporarily place image, or even a text link to another page. Allow inserting image with a link would be good.

    Works fine on 1.7.14! Will it also be available for 1.8.xx?
