Pligg Support

In my Facebook I have the Desk Hop VNC APP. I use this with a few clients at times. My Facebook is listed in my Profile.

If you need help, are in the continental US, on a highspeed connection and a PC or Laptop, friend me then message me with your problem. I'll co-ordinate with you there.

Only Thursday nights 7PM and later , I'll pick and choose the problems and who I'll help. If this doesn't get ridiculous I'll consider extending this some.

I'm in the process of outlining a possible book or document. This is for case studies and further experience. Else this might wind up on my websites.
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.
Recently, the support site is filled with questions that answers have been provided in previous posts!

Moreover, some users are installing Pligg, having no clue whatsoever and do not bother exploring the Admin Panel first and before they hammer the site with questions...It is like buying a house and keep calling the company or the previous owner asking how to turn the lights on or how to move the stairs and change the decor!!!

In their questions, they need everything YESTERDAY and all is either nonsense or need modifying the whole Pligg core!!!!

You want help? Then:
1- Do your homework first
2- Ask a clear question and don't let us hire a psychic to guess what you really want.
3- If you have no clue whatsoever, then please don't expect us to tailor the Pligg CMS to your imagination!!!
I have noticed that there is deficiency of webmaster forum for pligg where admin of pligg powered website can chit chat and discuss. Anyone interested to join to start a small pligg admin talk kind of forum for webmaster.
I want to add extra comment field. I have tried as following:

1. Created extra column "extra_comment_field" into "pligg_comments" table

2. Added following code to comment_form.tpl
input type="text" name="extra_comment_field" id="extra_comment_field" 

3. Added following lines into comment.php

$extra_comment_field= $db->escape($this->extra_comment_field);

And changed following line:

 $sql = "INSERT IGNORE INTO " . table_comments . " (comment_parent, comment_user_id, comment_link_id, comment_karma, comment_date, comment_randkey, comment_content, extra_comment_field, comment_status) VALUES ($comment_parent, $comment_author, $comment_link, $comment_karma, FROM_UNIXTIME($comment_date), $comment_randkey, '$comment_content', '$extra_comment_field', '$comment_status')";

Hi,i have found this on old pligg forum but this for old pligg version.. anyone know how to put ad banner after several story on summaries?
I installed it and it was only returning empty placeholders. I noticed at the bottom of /widget.tpl the following:
// Need to switch this to Feedburner after re-launch

So I commented the first one and uncommented the last one as it says in the comment above.

It worked, however, the images are broken in the display. The links to the thumbnails as fetched by the $rss->channel->item is a broken link:

Even the links to the products are broken!
How can we fix this and where is the right source for the thumbnails and products?

Thank you!

USERS, please do not change you files before it is signaled by YankiDank.

This is a fix to \libs\settings-from-db.php

There is a major bug in the foreach and IF statements that is incorrectly assigning smarty variable to some of the results pulled from the config table.

the changes are reflected on my forked pligg at

I tried to push it to your github and I don't know if it went through or not.

See the links for details on how the process was and a comparison table of all the 87 variables before and after the fix.
