Aalborg Reboot, the final theme

I’m very happy to announce the launch of our final Elgg theme, Aalborg Reboot. The theme is an improved version of aalborg_theme that is included in the Elgg package. Now what improvements are there in Aalborg Reboot? A significant improvement is the option to add a cover photo to your profile page, just as you know it from Facebook. It should be standard in Elgg, I think. Groups profile pages have also been redesigned. The cover image is now larger, more pronounced, and a menu has been added. If you want to see “About” and “Members”, the information will appear at a click. And the status menu has moved up to the other basic information about the group. Members and Friends pages also look different in Aalborg Reboot. Profile images are larger and the layout has been changed from list view to gallery view. There are also a few basic changes. All filter menus in Aalborg Reboot are based on Flex and fully responsive. The filter buttons are thus elegant and practical on smaller screens. All other buttons now fill the container 100%. It is a mobile first approach. There are additional minor changes. You will discover them when using the theme. I hope you enjoy Aalborg Reboot. If you have an active subscription, you may sign in and download a copy of Aalborg Reboot. Check out Aalborg...

Sunsetting Elggzone: Time to say goodbye

As you may have noticed, subscriptions can no longer be purchased. This is because after careful consideration I have decided to close down Elggzone. It’s time for me to get on with other projects. If you are a customer with us and have a subscription, you do not need to worry. You will continue to have access to the products until your subscription expires, and all active subscriptions will be canceled prior to expiration. You will NOT be billed at the end of your term.. I am very proud to have worked on the Elgg software and with the people in core team. I’ve learned a lot from the challenges I have met, and I hope I’ve also given back something useful. I have spent countless hours over the years and had several sleepless nights working on various Elgg projects. But it has been worth it, I have had a lovely time. And now it’s time to say goodbye to Elggzone. I would like to thank all those who have supported the project through the years – customers, friends, the core guys, Facebook and Twitter followers and those who shipped a donation because they appreciated my contribution to Elgg. Thank you all. By August I will release the very last Elggzone theme. It has been in the pipeline for too long due to lack of time, but soon it’s here! The theme, Aalborg Reeboot, will of course be available for download for subscribers. On July 1, 2018, the Elggzone website will close...

Introducing Maria, A Beautiful Elgg Theme with Off-canvas Menu

I am pleased to present our brand new Elgg theme, Maria. It is a beautiful and stylish Elgg theme, perfect for your social networking site. Maria comes with brand new modules and navigation. There are many options in Maria option panel and among others you can choose between 6 different front page modules. One of them is Google Maps, if you want to tell people where you are. Enter your address and a custom Google map displays your location. With Maria, we introduce a new menu, a responsive off-canvas navigation menu using CSS transforms and transitions. It gives a smooth performance on mobile devices and there’s jQuery fallback for IE. Maria also comes with Font Awesome icons integrated. On the filter menus, those you know with text links like “All, Mine, Friends”, the text is replaced with icons on smaller screens, not to break the layout. It is also worth mentioning that we have included a custom page ready to use. It may, for example, explain what your network can offer and you can easily link to the page from the highlighted button on the front page, it’s all explained in the options panel. You should try Maria in our demo, I hope you like what you see. Go to the Maria info page to check out the full feature list....

Freebies section launched

For some time we have been busy improving our management of file downloads. This means that you, the customer will see a more manageable layout and that each product has its own download page with detailed information.
