Weekly Update: March 08, 2006

My posts have been slowing down this month because I’m in the middle of finals (yes, I’m a college student). I am doing a lot of thinking about the next version of Pligg, but not much actual work. I picked up a few Ebooks that I plan to read through over break about Content Management

Star Rating System (Optional)

Some of you just leaned forward in your computer chairs, either intrigued by this idea or disgusted by it. I know what the latter of you are thinking, “Stars?… those aren’t very Digg-like”. Well, who says we have to do everything like Digg? In fact Pligg isn’t supposed to be a copy of Digg, we’re

Digg’s New Comment System (video)

Digg has yet to officially release this feature, but they posted a link to a video demonstrating it on digg.com. My initial reaction to the video was, “hey I came up with that idea” for a small bit of AJAX used to shrink unwanted comments to a bar. Digg also showed off much needed threaded

Changing the ‘God’ Password

When you install Pligg, a “God” account is created in your database automatically. The username for this account is “God” (minus the quotes of course) and the password by default is “password”. After completing the first install of Pligg you should log into this account and change the password and email for the account. The

Pligg (sort of) Mentioned on TWIT

TWIT Episode 43: Old Yeller mentioned Pligg a couple times during the show. Leo brings it up and keeps calling it Pigg, perhaps it’s time I write him an email to correct him. You can tell that Dvorak and the rest of the crew are completely ignoring the subject. Dvorak like usual is just trying

Call for Template Ideas

We are about a week in to the new template and already planning the framework for the next template. Instead of writing the next template from scratch we have decided that the best idea would probably be by using a generator to produce a very stable frame for the site and make modifications and addons

Beta 6.01 Update

AshDigg rolled out an update to Beta 6 to help fix a few bugs and add a few features. This is an essential upgrade because I forgot to include the .htaccess file with the 6.00 release. 6.01 does not include a /libs/dbconnect.php file, so please be sure to grab that from the 6.00 release or

Beta 6 Released!

Well, it’s finally out there. I’m still not happy with where Beta 6 is when it comes to compatability and features. We are going to start working on a more web standard version of the template with just 2 columns. For now this will help everyone out who wants to get away from the digg

Perhaps this will be the day?!?!

Man am I getting annoyed of myself. I know I’ve been putting this off longer and longer, but the guys in the IRC room have been some great beta testers. I also have to thank everyone who has left a comment to report bugs. We have most everything working (including sneak) and we are now
