A very long time ago, we announced a contest for Pligg Widget designers. The top 3 widget authors would win some awesome prizes including an Amazon Kindle, external hard drive, and thumb drive. Over time we forgot about the contest, but were recently reminded of it. Today we are happy to announce the winners.
It’s our 6th birthday, and to celebrate our 6th year of development we are releasing the most powerful module ever developed for Pligg CMS for free! Download the Status Update Module here by tweeting about Pligg.
Submissions will be closed on the final day of 2011 and judged soon afterwards so that we can award the prizes. If you are considering entering the contest, please have your entry submitted to the free widgets forum no later than December 31st, 2011.

This week I am doing something very special with our Pligg Pro weekly deal. From now until July 22nd at 5:00 PM I am offering a module pack that includes every module that I (Yankidank) have created for Pligg Pro. I have put together this package as a benefit for my sister who went through cancer surgery this week. I will be donating all of this module package’s earnings to my sister’s family (Holly, Matt, Hannah, Graham, and Becca). In addition to that I will match the sales with my own money, doubling up to $1,000 and donating that portion to the CancerCare Foundation.
Most Pligg updates require that you make at least a few changes to template files to maintain compatibility with the latest version. These changes are typically new features and bug fixes that need to manually be added to the template with new versions. A common question that we get from users is how they can update their template when upgrading their site so that their template will remain compatible with the latest version of Pligg. This post will guide you through the template upgrade process and demonstrates how easy it is to keep your template up to date whenever a new version of Pligg comes out.
