This Elgg plugin is a theme built for Elgg 1.8 that will make your site look very much like Facebook. It is meant to be a demonstration of what is possible with the very strong theming capabilities of Elgg 1.8. Disclaimers
If I haven't been clear enough yet: this theme is written for Elgg 1.8. It is guaranteed to break on 1.7.
I've been short on time lately and haven't been able to contribute as I'd like. However, if you have the ability, I'd love your contributions on github. I'll incorporate them into the plugin if they are high quality and that way we can avoid splintering into several different versions of the plugin. Thanks for your help!
Thank you to all the community testers who volunteered their time to report bugs and even contribute code! Your contributions make it possible to create a high-quality model theme for Elgg 1.8!
The following issues have been fixed:
And there are probably some more that I'm forgetting. See the github commit log for the exhaustive list of changes.
newbie here. I get a message "Fatal error: Call to undefined function elgg_register_event_handler() in /home/idonk78/public_html/elgg/mod/facebook_theme/start.php on line 556" after i enabled the plugin.
I get the same message when i go to my domain. Please advise and thanks in advance.
@Evan, If I had to guess, I think Camille may be asking how to populate content in the right sidebar.
Since 1.8 is beta, I presume it is either not yet ready for this capability or the space was left for people to code up and use as they see fit.
In either case, this is a great model and example of working with templates in 1.8 to springboard the thought process. Thanks for this work Evan.
thanks for the great theme, but it seems that Ive found a bug, not sure if its bug in the theme or 1.8beta.
Try to make a group, then enter to that group, write something in a text box and press "Post", you'll see that page's proken, no header/footer, just a profile info. But when you press "back" you'll see your post there.
Please let me know how I can fix it?
just found abother problem, on the default skin when you're in the crop there're 3 buttons above everything, like join group, invite friends, but when I activate your facebook theme there aren't these buttons.
Please let me know if you're going to work on update of your beautiful theme, so I may wait for update or if it'll take long time, I'll better switch to the standard skin and will try to modify it.
with the best wishes,
probably Ive found some more problems with your theme, here's the list:
1. Follow button hidden when I'm working with your FaceBook theme. Also, it looks like that some other links aren't showing (they're in html source, but I don't see it). When I deactivate theme those links appears.
2. Something wrong with the bookmark, when Ive made a bookmark, it says Tony bookmarked %s. So %s isn't replacing with the link name.
3. Its possible to resize box for post only downside, if I'm trying to resize it to the right side its hidden by outer div.
4. Maybe there's a problem with avatar, after Ive added one everything seems great, but when Ive checked myself profile page under another login, Ive got a message about mistake in the browser status line, page was loaded successfully, but avar wasn't loaded. Everything seems fine with avatar with default theme.
Thanks for all the bug reports! Is there any possibility that you could open up a separate ticket for each issue at https://github.com/ewinslow/elgg-facebook_theme/issues? That would be much appreciated!
