Pligg Support


I want to customize my pligg site to track down the traffic per published page , I checked in the database but have not found any such functionality in default pligg.

Is there any module available for this, or if I decide to do it on my own is there any developers documentation for pligg?

I searched this on google but did not find any relevant results. I am good at PHP and have known pligg in and out(as a user).
I am building up a site at and managed to add a few products in there initially, but have made quite a few changes including to latest version but I can no longer post. Would having $ signs in my category names create an issue ? I don't get an error messages - just nothing posts.
In the Pligg 1.2 script there was a great function that allowed to give random votes to submitted news. Is there something similar for Pligg 2.x?

I committed it on my forked pligg too.
table_tags and table_tag_cache are updated in two cases:

1. Upon submitting a new story.
2. Every time a story is edited.

In the first case, in \submit.php, LINE 428, we find a call to a function in the \libs\tags.php file: tags_insert_string($linkres->id, $dblang, $linkres->tags);

However, at this stage the status of the story being submitted is still ‘discard’, while in the Function tags_insert_string, it specifically selects from table_links only the links that meet the status of published or new, therefore the new tags entered for story being submitted won’t be included and won’t appear in the tag cloud until the next submit (and again the newest tags won’t be included) or when the admin deletes the discarded stories from the admin section and automatically rebuilds the table_tag_cache.

After following the logic of the process, the best place to call the Function tags_insert_string is after we make sure that the story’s status is set to publish:

1. In \submit.php, LINE 428, comment or remove this code:

tags_insert_string($linkres->id, $dblang, $linkres->tags);

2. On LINE 517, after
function do_submit3() {

change this: global $db;

To this: global $db, $dblang;

Because we need the database language for the table_tags entries

3. On LINE 549, right after:


Add this (the code we commented or removed in step 1)

I have started my new pligg cms. but I want the site to show my site name instead of

" Welcome to Pligg CMS! "
Also I would like to know how I can display the links that are posted even without registering as I have seen few users who made the site look like that.. can any one help me with this?
Id like to add a forum to my site - but something simpler in terms of layout like this "forum" here on Pligg. Is this modified Pligg available as a module at all ? I have lots of experience with VBulletin and Phpbb but not looking for something like that. Something simple and clean. Any other recommendations ?

(Loving Pligg so far as a new user)

I setup a new pligg site using the last version 2.0.2.
When i submit any story from any URl the system say:
URL is invalid or blocked
This happen with every URL , even with the domain which pligg installed on it.
I check that allow URL fopen is on on php.ini.
I try also to disable URL validate from back end, but the problem still exist.
Please advice me.
