Shortly after the 1.0.2 release we were alerted to a vulnerability reported by Secunia and third party researcher Russ McRee. We have resolved the security issues in a timely manner and Secunia will be publishing their report on December 2, 2009. We thank Secunia for notifying us of the problems and properly coordinating the disclosure of this security threat. We do our best to provide quality code to prevent such security issues, but no CMS is perfect.
Currently the Forums are the most affected by our server issues. They are mostly inaccessible at the moment, and we are working on addressing this issue as soon as possible. Throughout the day you may receive error messages or pages that never complete. We are doing our best to address these issues and we should have the site back to normal soon.
We have been fortunate that 1.0.3 has proven to be a fairly stable and bug free release, and because of that we have not posted a follow up version as quickly as we have done in the past. Last night I took some time to consider what features Pligg needs most, resulting in a roadmap for our next two releases.
I can remember several users in the past asking if it was possible to export user data from Pligg into Excel. It was an interesting idea, and it seemed especially useful for people who needed a simple way to export user email addresses to use for email campaigns. This tutorial provides a very simple PHP script for Pligg that will export user data that is being stored in the MySQL database into a Microsoft Excel document.

The greatly anticipated Status Update Module is now available for purchase from Pligg Pro. This module has previously been covered in two blog articles, on where we demonstrated the features through a video screencast and another where we announced that you could try it out on the Pligg Design Gallery.
We are happy to announce that we have chosen the top 3 free Pligg CMS templates. We took into consideration the overall design, the author’s history with the Pligg community, and any bugs discovered when testing the template.
It looks like the pligg.com server was down for a short amount of time last night. The outage began a little before 5:00 am EST and continued until nearly 9:00 am EST. Some users on Twitter are reporting that the forums have been down for an extended period of time, but we are only able Continue reading »
The latest version of Pligg includes many fixes and new features. The list of changes is quite extensive and can be read on the Pligg 1.0.2 release thread.

We have been working for a while now on the 1.0.2 release, and after 2 and a half months of work we are just about ready to release an update for one of the most promising CMS’s. I have been holding off on this release because I wanted to provide a rock solid release to Continue reading »
