So CLOSE!

I spent a huge amount of time working on the template for Beta 6 today. It turned out that the other author converting it into tables wasn’t such a great idea so I decided to personally finish this wretched thing. I’m at the point where I can no longer tell if it looks good or

Beta 6 Release Day Part II

It’s a few minutes after midnight now and I’m sad to say we didn’t make our release date. The template has a lot of IE bugs that need to be sorted out and the designer has a router that keeps cutting of his connection. The release has been postponed another day. The good news is

Beta 6 Release Day Part I

Today is the big day that many of you have been waiting for. I handed a copy of Beta 6 out to some of the IRCers 2 days ago and I am under the assumption that I should be getting an updated template file from one of the site members sometime today to post as

Beta 6 Progress Report

The new template is still in the garage being fixed, but that hasn’t stopped us from adding some extra features to surprise everyone with when we release this sucker. Right now I have completed the very basic task of laying out the site and aligning most of the big items where they need to be

Pligg Beta 6 PR Green

I have made some changes to the template in response to some of the comments and to add a new “sneak” icon for the DiggSpy-like feature that will be included with Beta 6. The coloring is still not set as is, it’s lighter than I expected. For some reason Photoshop’s colors appear lighter when you

Meneame Sneak

Ricardo has done a great job again by adding a few new features to meneame.net. Among the changes is the new Sneak function, much like DiggSpy. This feature has been asked for by the Pligg community for the longest time and it’s great to see that Ricardo has developed it because the Pligg team didn’t

Beta 6 Mock-Up

We’ve made some progress with Beta 6′s new template and we are really happy to present a mock-up of what Beta 6 might look like when it is completed. In it’s current form Beta 6 is pretty far off from this mock-up, but I am confident that we will be able to release something close

Digg Updates, But Doesn’t Innovate

Yesterday Kevin posted about some new features on the official Digg blog. As I have mentioned in the past, Digg really hasn’t come out of it’s shell to offer great new abilities. Instead they tend to only make small improvements on what already exists. This new update is a perfect example. Perhaps the only update

External Vote Buttons

Today I spent my morning converting a script from the meneame.net version into pligg. The new External Vote Button (EVB) will allow users to post a vote image on their blogs, articles, etc. that will automatically create a vote link to a Pligg site. The vote button it is probably one of the coolest mods

Slashcode

Those familiar with Digg are usually familiar with the even more popular tech news site Slashdot.org. I have never really been a fan of Slashdot’s system for promoting stories through editors because I felt like it really limited the amount of news and would slow the ability for news to quickly get picked up by
