Westors Elgg Manager for Elgg 1.8

Comfortable RIA (Rich Internet Application) interface for various functions. Users can view and edit external contacts, send e-mails, manage their friends and groups. Admins can manage Elgg users, groups, external contacts, bulk messages and SMS.

Last updated 778 days ago

This cool plugin is helpful for admins and for normal users. A comfortable AJAX interface helps to manage users, friends, external contacts, groups and messages. One can send bulk e-mail and SMS to a bunch of users or friends. You can easily search in your messages history.

Admins have more options then normal users, like delete or edit user data, block or unblock user, activate or deactivate.

SMS functions are supported. Please contact me for your use cases and special backend connections you want to have.

The instruction manual comes in form of some screenshots with comments. Please visit the projects home.

If you like the plugin, please click on the "Recommendations" link in the upper right.

- compatibility with Elgg 1.8.3 down to Elgg 1.7.x

- layout issues fixed

    I would like to know if this plugin is compatible with Elgg 1.7.13.

    Can it be configured for only showing to administrators?

  • DhrupDeScoop 766 days ago

    ;-) it kinda does say above  Elgg Version: 1.8 - and if you've spent some time reading thru in general - other posts hanging here - 1.8 has API changes which make 1.8 PlugIns Vs < 1.8 incompatible ;-X

    Admin only - takes abt 5 mins & 1.5 lines of php code to 'configure' - for someone that codes with php/elgg - but longer and more effort for some one that does not.


  • Delia Carballo 766 days ago

    DhrupDeScoop, I don't know why you tell me "and if you've spent some time reading thru in general - other posts hanging here". Does "here" means the Elgg community?

    I asked about compatibility with 1.7.13 because in "release notes" it's written "compatibility with Elgg 1.8.3 down to Elgg 1.7.x", and I thought that means it's compatible with all versions 1.7. But since I'm not English speaking, I was trying to know if I'm wrong or right.


  • DhrupDeScoop 766 days ago

    Pregunta N º 1 se responde por encima de

    - ¿El "aquí" significa que la comunidad Elgg? -
    También tenemos un grupo que habla español aquí - para aquellos que se sienten más cómodos  con el español

    - Hasta Elgg 1.7.x - Creo que Torsten puede haber codificado el - Elgg la lógica de la API - para atender a 1.8 y 1.7 también 0 -, pero sólo él puede cumplir que - a menos que uno lee el código actual en el interior del plug-in. de lo contrario -, en general, 1,8 código no es compatible en el 1,7 - casi siempre. plugins muy pocos funcionar correctamente tanto en el 1,7 y el 1,8

    Yo no soy de habla española -, pero me gusta tratar - a través de Google, un diccionario y libro;-) y pueden seguir una conversación mayoría de los españoles.

  • Delia Carballo 766 days ago

    Thanks DhrupDeScoop for the try in Spanish, but I prefer reading you in English :D

    I know that usually plugins for 1.8 are not compatible with 1.7. Only I hope this one works.

    Torsten is Westor's real name? Well, I'll wait to Torsten's answer ;)

  • DhrupDeScoop 766 days ago

    ;-oO;X;P yepz.. he'll be around sometime soon.

  • DhrupDeScoop 766 days ago

    @Delia: You might be lucky - I read thru some of Torsten's code - smart guy ;-) -- He has catered for 1.8 and lower versions in very smart manner ;-P

    So - why don't you give his work some (flattering) credibility and simply install the PlugIn in 1.7.13 and then be surprised to see it execute flawlessly. And if you know anything about who Torsten and I are w.r.t Elgg technicals - you will in a very big hurry to blindly test it right now for yourself to find out ;-oO


  • westor 766 days ago

    Hi Delia - yes, it should work well - I can't guerantee it for all version combinations (elgg and php) but I myself needed a compatibility with 1.6.5 and that works, and in my 1.7.5 version ist works also - I added a comapatibility layer. If it's not running, please let me know as axact as possible where the problems are.


  • Delia Carballo 766 days ago

    Thank you very much Torsten. This is the site where we will be using your plugin http://www.misaludenred.org

    I'll tell you what happens ;)

  • Delia Carballo 763 days ago

    Hello again Torsten. The plugin works perfectly in Elgg 1.7.5.

    Thank you :)

  • westor 762 days ago

    That's, what I expected ;-) please don't foget to give a recommendation. By the way - nice website, I think.

  • Vitalia Zucca 750 days ago

    is very nice but I need to disable the sms function, is it possible?

  • westor 749 days ago

    Currently not - I consider this for Pro version.

  • Vitalia Zucca 749 days ago

    In the pro version is already possible to disable SMS? or must be implemented?

  • westor 749 days ago

    Not yet, sorry - it has do be implemented. If you like, I could drop you a note, if it's available.

  • İşöğüçı 699 days ago

    Interesting plugin.

    + Useful if you want your users to send SMS's or mass emails to other users, friends. Especially useful for admins to see the join,last login,action dates of members.

    - This plugin seems to be a completely separate application living in elgg. Probably technically this is true for all plugins but I mean visually. I would prefer that this plugin build on existing Elgg UI for its useful functions, replacing the existing UI elements. Instead it offers alternative ways of doing the existing stuff (in addition to new functionality) and I believe it is a recipe for user confusion.


    p.s. With Elgg 1.8.4 I get the error message (I already have some non-default other plugins activated):

    Deprecated in 1.8: settings/westorElggMan/edit was deprecated in favor of plugins/westorElggMan/settings Called from [#8

  • Roy 679 days ago

  • Graeme Buss 628 days ago


    I am un able to use Westors Elgg Manager on Elgg 1.8.5 what am I doing wrong? I cant see it anywhere except in plugin settings??


  • Michele 628 days ago

    Simply GREAT plugin!

    Is there an easy way to add more columns to Admin view other than the ones shown on settings page? I created new profile and group fields which I'd like to be able to show in elggman as admin.


  • westor 628 days ago

    @Graeme Buss sorry I havn't tryed it on elgg 1.8.5 - last release is for elgg 1.8.3. Currently there is no time to make new releases... :-( sorry.

    @MIchele - not without changing some things. May be it could be easy, if you don't hesitate to change the php code in /mod/westorElggMan/services/qooxdoo/elggMan.php.
    In constructor is an array:

    $columnsAdmin = array(
    "username" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cUserName"),
    "email" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cEmail"),
    // "mobile" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cMobile"),
    "time_created" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cSince"),
    "last_login" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cLastLogin"),
    // "last_action" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cLastAction"),
    // "location" => elgg_echo("ElggMan_:cLocation")

    You can try to extend this array with your field names.

    But sorry, I currently can't give more support.


  • Michele 628 days ago

    @westor your support is a lot already, thank you so much, I will try what you suggest and see.

    I'm using it on 1.8.8 and everything seems to work perfectly until now

  • Michele 628 days ago

    @westor I tried but didn't work, maybe because some other file has to be changed to make this field also available in the plugin's settings page and select it checking the radio button on Yes. Thank you for trying to help anyways


  • confusedcoconut 627 days ago


    When I want to search under "All activated users" I get the error "Please note! Asyn(24) exception: Local error 2: Aborted getElggData". Does anyone know why this is occuring? Thanks in advance!
