Pligg Support

Is important to know how, because someone is trolling and sending requests to recover password many times.
I have the latest version of pligg and use the default theme. I'd like to change the color of the register button, and only that button.
I assume I will have to make a new class for the register button and then edit the css accordingly. However, I'm not sure which css file I'll need to add this too, or which file I would find the individual button on which I can add the class.
If anyone can steer me in the right direction, thank you.

I want only display some content from some of categories on front page, does anyone try to do it? I was going to start looking into code but maybe there is easier way to do so?
I'm getting ready to try installing the WordPress login plugin / Pligg module again. Hoping to get it working this time.

One caveat is I'm running WordPress in the root directory with Pligg answering from it's own directory via a htaccess redirect. Had to do it this way as some of my sites require WordPress running under multi-site.

I need to know the Pligg 'Salt_Length' and any other tips would be appreciated. If I get it working I'll try to document everything and make that available to everyone who needs it.

I also want to get it working with my older sites running 1.2.2 but the site I'm going to put this on runs 2.0.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 did a file comparison between the Pligg CMS available from the download section (2.0.2) and the masters files from github (

Users, who still have the 2.0.2 from the download and did not perform the fixes updates from the github master, need to integrate the following fixes that deal with issues and addresses a lot of questions that are posted with regard to stories and their management!

To fix the search for subcategories:
1- When you select a category from the advanced search page, it will not return results from that category and all sub-categories belonging to it

2- Fix applied to fix the "Show subcategories" feature in Admin > Config > Miscellaneous. Advanced search is still not able to search both main categories and subcategories belonging to them, it will only return results from the selected category

Fix to the Spam trigger module

Fix to the Negative votes to discard a story

Fix an issue where administrators are unable to use the "Edit Group"
As there is no DELETE user function in Pligg, I used KillSpam User function on two test accounts.

Unfortunately, this action has BLOCKED my IP, and I cannot create new users form my IP address now.

Q: How to unblock my IP?

I want to get the PowerTools for Pligg CMS and Facebook Module. For the latter it mentions that it is Designed for Pligg CMS 2.0.2. How about the Power Tools?

Thank you!
In the Admin Panel -> Settings -> Miscellenaous
The "Show subcategories" is by deffault set to false.

If you have subcategories and the default is false, when you click on a category to display all the stories under this category, it won't include its subcategories in the search result. However, if you want to also include the subcategories of the category you are searching, you have to set the value to true.

The code to include the subcategories in the search won't work as it is.

Open the below files and go to te line numbers and replace every instance of
if(! Independent_Subcategories ){


if( Independent_Subcategories == true){

LINE # 373 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 450 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 190 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 132 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 83 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 115 ..... if (! Independent_Subcategories ){
LINE # 146 ..... if(! Independent_Subcategories ){
