    Social Engine and MailChimp Integration
    Hello,

    Is there some plugin that integrate Social Engine with MailChimp? I am looking for a plugin that syncronize my SE users with Mailchimp List and I found only one plugin that is actually outdated.
      • 1
      magnus There are many ways to make it work, depending on if it is the signup e-mails you want. I have managed to get all new signups to Mailchimp and MadMimi this ways:
      1. Mailschimp <- Zapier.com <- New user Mail sent from SocialEnginePhp (the one that goes to admin)
      2. MAilchimp <- Zapier.com <- SocialEnginePhp (MySQLdB): Here I use Zapiers MySql connecor. The connector only takes new users that are added in the dB.

      Both works like a charm.

      Best

      Eugene Will csv export/import work for you here? Or do you need auto-sync?

      (deleted) That was only one plugin that I was aware of and I used it back a long time ago and it worked well for adding users to a MailChimp list but I have not used it in a few years. It was outdated then but still worked. I assume we are talking about the same plugin. I do not of any others at the moment.

    How to Remove Notifications?
    Hello,

    I am starting to get tired with issues with third party, its insane the quantity of tickets that I already opened to solve bugs and problems due a lack of development standart in Social Engine.

    Below is my next challenge, remove notifications that still in my website even when I disabled the plugin or disabled an option in the plugin that make these notifications useless.

    I take a screenshot of my user notification tab:
    https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1Vh7_gHrCMHX0kxbXBJRXhKM0U

    1- As you can see I have notification options from plugins that neither are enabled anymore.

    2- I have notification option with the name of the plugin. C'mon, someone really think that admin like when users know which plugin are running in the website?

    3- How can I disable some of these notifications? There are several notifications options in the suggestion groups that are useless since I disabled all these features in the own plugin setting.

    Is there someplace where this informations is stored? I started to figure out that several settings from SE are stored in the database, but I couldnt identify where can I go to manually delete some of these unused entries.

      (deleted) You can edit almost all of that yourself from the admin panel or in your database using some mysql GUI program. Change the name of the modules to remove the "advanced" is what I did from the database itself or edit from the language packages settings. You can also remove options for notifications from the SE Admin panel if they are showing up when disabled until it can be fixed.

      PoeticJustice New to this community i raised something similar to this on github https://github.com/SocialEngine/phpv4-issues/issues/566 , and i must say users seeing what plugin is being used, is just ridiculous, i had to buy webhive accessmanager to restrict that notifications page, but i need to log into EVVVVERY account to disable, because it admin notifications settings lacks features of an overide, soon as i installed a new plugin after have 700 users, the new plugin automatically enabled notifications for the past 700 members.

      gs I need the same thing, but for a different reason. I wanted to minimize the # notifications (esp email notifications), so I will be having a Dev create a customization that allows (for each notification):
      - Admin can enable/disable the notification
      - Admin can create a default for each notification (which then get's copied to each new User, so rather than hundreds of triggers creating notifications, dozens will instead by default).

      Again - I wish SE did this by default (I was actually surprised to find out it didn't). But I've found that there seems to be very little control Admin has over some obvious processes.

      For your issue, it seems that if/when SE creates a proper Uninstall Plugin function (and of course the Dev has to code properly for SE standards) that this may resolve your issue (if 'everything' gets removed when a Plugin is uninstalled).

    SE need a Third Party Development Standard Policy
    Hello,

    I am using Social Engine for a year and I am starting to get tired to deal with issues with developer. Never in my almost 5 years working with communities and scripts I needed to open so many tickets to developer to fix issues so basic that they neither should exist.

    This is a topic that I opened and show one clear example of the lack of a developement standard: http://community.onsocialengine.com/post/5766717/how-to-remove-notifications

    To maintain the quality and also avoid issues with plugins from different SE developers I think that SE team should create a policy with standards of developement like never put the name of a plugin in the frontend or put links to their websites. I have a plugin that even disabled still working in my website and other that if I install the core plugin it mess with a plugin from another because it bring a special widget.

      (deleted) I am annoyed right now myself that one plugin links to a .css file on their server or how some plugins are dependent on the 3rd party's servers to work. (I am not talking about licensing functions here either) If a 3rd party were having networking errors or forbid that they shutter business and things stop working for good. And it is very annoying for myself also that they do use their names in their module directories so when source code is viewed it clearly shows a 3rd party name. I am not even happy with adding things like "Advanced" or "adv" to the folder names. I have been playing around for a little bit on renaming the directory and then going through all the code and database entries of the module and changing where it looks for the files to point to my custom directory. It seems a few things need to be changed in SE also, like the active_modules_directories files and other stuff. But I have not figured it all out exactly yet as I have just been playing with this idea here and there. But I will get it eventually mark my words.

    Storage limitation gives {"status":false} error
    Hello all. If there is a fix for this, please let me know how to do it. It's been a long time problem for me. See my website has several member levels and I want to limit storage to the basic member levels. For example 1GB only,  When I do that, members that have reached the limit and trying to upload more photos, are not getting the appropriate message but a {"status":false} What I need is to them to get a message saying something like: "You have reached your storage limit, please delete some of you content or subscribe to XY membership to have unlimited storage." I thought this would work by default but for some reason all they get is that error. Any help or advise greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      SocialEngine PHP MGR Hi @AA, Thanks for the suggestion, we've added this in our internal feature tracker and will consider displaying some appropriate & meaningful message in our future releases in case when a member would have reached his memory limit and still trying to upload media content on the site. But currently there is no fix for this, so you can customize the code at your end to have this feature.
      Thanks!

    Member Theme Selection doesn't save
    I don't know if this issue has been raised yet or not but this is a very old feature on SE. Offering members to change their theme. It's a really good feature which I just - after 3 years - want to offer to my members. However, turns out that the theme they select does not save. Once they close the browser and re open it, their chosen theme is gone and the system default takes place. If this is a bug please do fix it. If it is something I must do, change in files, permission, etc. please tell me what the steps are. Thanks a lot!

      seTweaks The theme they choose is temporary. It doesn't save the value in the database. It saves it in a cookie and cookies are not permanent. The widget is mostly used for admins to preview themes quickly.

    Forum Photos create new album every time
    When a member uploads a photo in a forum post, SE creates a new album, named Forum Photos, every single time. Instead of grouping all the forum photos of the same member in one album, every time a photo is posted in the forums it creates a new Forum Photos album. So there are members with 100s of Forum Photos albums, containing one picture each. It makes it impossible to keep photos and albums organised. If there is a fix I can do for this please let me know, which file, what to change, but if it is a bug that needs to be fixed all together please do that. Thank you!

    Notifications
    Hi, wanted to know why on my site it takes so long to get my notifications? If someone likes or commented on a post I will get an email saying so but when I go to my site it doesn't show up until maybe 20 minutes to an hour later.

    Advertise Question
    Hello,
    I am trying to setup the advertise correclty, buy I am facing a small problem: the equality view feature. Lets suppose the following, I have a advertisement with more than 50k views and I would like to add a new advertisement. I noticed that the new advertisement will be displayed until it reach the same quantitiy of views from the advertise with the highest quantity of views, what seems a bit odd if you consider that the new advertise will be heavily displayed. There is some way to rotate the ads without this condition? If

      SocialEngine PHP MGR Hi [198153,Mohamed Rezk], thanks for reaching out. If you're talking about core Mobi Plugin, then we're unable to reproduce such issue in default SE PHP installation at our end and photo uploading via mobile works fine.
      You may also check this issue uploading photos via mobile device on our demo website: http://demo.socialengine.com/ and if you still have any queries, please file a support ticket along with your website's details to enable them look deeper into this issue on your specific installation.
