Pligg CMS Celebrates 8 Years of Development!

Today marks 8 years since Pligg CMS was first created back in 2005. Since that time, Pligg has grown from a basic web script to a fully functional content management platform. We’re really proud of our accomplishments over the years and would like to share with you some highlights.

A Brief Pligg History Lesson

  • In late 2005, Spanish software developer Ricardo Galli published open source code used to create the website
  • Eric “Yankidank” Heikkinen, the founder of Pligg, translated the Meneame code from Spanish to English. Others also contributed their own translations and bug fixes.
  • With the help of other developers like Kbeeveer46, AshDigg, ChuckRoast, and others, the Pligg project gradually grew into a fully functional content management platform.
  • Starting in 2007, Pligg began offering digital products for sale on through the “Pligg Pro” shop. This allowed us to fund Pligg CMS development without having to rely on donations.
  • Pligg was nominated as one of the “Most Promising Open Source Projects” in Packt Publishing’s 2010 Open Source CMS awards.
  • In 2013 Pligg introduced Pligg CMS 2.0.0, which included a fresh new design and a large number of bug fixes and new features. The website also re-launched with the addition of a more developer friendly downloads area and vendor program.
