This plugin aims to create a very configurable home page without need for writing a custom index. It piggybacks off the amazing work of Coldtrick IT Solutions and their Widget Manager plugin. An administrator can choose the number of widget columns and their widths. There is no limit to the number of widget columns available. Additionally, the free html widget can be used to place custom content anywhere, but when viewed by a non-admin will be free of the widget styling.
- extends the Widget Manager index page with a configurable numberof rows and columns of configurable width
- extends the free_html widget to use a wysiwyg editor
- removes widget styles from free_html and login on the index page
- optionally replaces footer content with Administrator supplied html
- Widget Manager
This plugin was funded by Bizcore
- moved hardcoded style to css class- more sensible view handling - view location got cached and caused issues- more sensible css logic
- please note that the free_html widget is sometimes flakey due to problems with tinymce and dynamic content. If it's not working, move the widget to a wide column and refresh the page.
Also note - widget manager has a setting to allow Admins to submit unfiltered HTML in the free_html widget
i've had the image slider active on my test site for a few weeks without any issues..
today it has failed for no reason that i am aware of..
the chromium debug data says:
Uncaught TypeError: Object [object Object] has no method 's3Slider'
the display is just blank, however the elements have loaded into html.
anyone have any idea why that might be?
knock! knock! anybody home ??
there's no "ahh" about it ;)

this myopia thangz this a fair too many times..
moare coffee, buddy, coffee !!!
@Brandy: "priority" is not a plugin that is required. Instead it's required that the priority of the widget manager plugin is lower than the priority of the homepage cms plugin, i.e. you need to place the homepage cms plugin below the widget manager plugin in the plugin list on your site.
Hello there .. Ty for the great plugin.
How can i keep the widget styling on the free Html widgets for non-admin users.
In other words , i want to free html widgets to look like regular widgets for non-admin users. The "Hide Header" option is not working for me. Thank you.
Hi Matt. For some reason version 1.2 does not work for me. I can not see those yellow rulers. I go back to version 1.0 and it works fine. Do I do something wrong?
I have WidgetManager v4.3 on Elgg v1.8.8. Other things which might be relevant: walled garden setting. OS: Pardus (linux). Browser: Firefox 6.0.2. Regards.
I had run the upgrade via the button on admin dashboard. I hit this issue also when I reinstalled the elgg software (on an existing database and data file) where there was no previous occurance of the plugin under the mod dir. But the database had the settings from the previous software, I presume. regs.
Hi this is Great, but Can I add a class to the text for the Login (welcome message) I want to make the font bigger and style it up etc..
I click on advanced on the widget and notice there is an option for custom css class, but not sure what to put in there?
i just noticed that the 'pages/layout/content' view is not activated by this plugin.. as with most other pages, so my new layout is breaking.. i thought that the content view was a standard on in the elgg structure.. any chance you can update this plugin to include it? thanks
With the Free HTML Widget when I copy and paste some HTML codes into the box and view it, I can't seem to figure out why it does not have any borders like the rest of the Widgets on the page, it shows a border from the admin side on the homepage but when I view the site there is no border around the Widget or header, you know the box with the Title at the top. Anyone know why and how I can include the border box with title w/ the Free HTML widget?
