Pligg Support


First, thanks for creating the module. It's great. My question is: Is there any way to make it so that users can ONLY submit videos (not articles, pictures, music, etc.)?

Thank you,

    You can remove the url submission step 1 by going to admin > settings > submit> require url set to false, and show url input set to false.

    Sorry if I was unclear. I don't want users to upload their own embeded videos. I want users to ONLY be able to embed URL's with video on them. An example...I would only like for them to be able to submit something like a youtube video, not their own video, and not a static url like

    That's a big request! You could maybe block any sites that don't have videos normally or only allow sites that should have videos but I think this calls for manual checking/moderation. You, as moderator, would down vote any link you don't like or discard that URL.

    I'm sure you could write a bunch of code to do this for you but it would take a bunch of time and probably nor give you the results you expect at that!!

    There's no substitute for being active in your own website.

    Yes you can through the upload module settings. You can just remove the allowable files type of what kind of media you don't want to allow them to submit.

    Thanks for the response Chuck.

    That will work for certain file types, but that doesn't prevent someone from submitting a static website/webpage. I want to make it so that they can ONLY submit embedded videos. Is this possible?

Submitting a Question or Comment

By taking a minute to research previous posts you may receive an answer much faster than waiting for a response to a new question. Begin by searching the support section for an answer. Sometimes you may even want to extend your search to the entire domain.

If you are unable to find a relevant answer, submit a new question or comment here. Please provide a detailed description and, when necessary, debugging information such as your server environment (a link to a <?php phypinfo(); ?> .php page would be very helpful), your web browser, and any steps necessary to reproduce your issue.

Submitting an Answer

If you have an answer or useful response that you would like to add to a post, you can submit it as a comment which other users will then vote on. Answers are sorted by most popular to least, allowing the best information to climb to the top of the page.

Please read and vote for existing answers before submitting your own, as there may already be an acceptable answer provided. You can use the "Reply" link found within an answer to submit a response to it, in case you want to expand or comment on someone else's contribution.

Including Files or Code

Sometimes it is necessary for you to attach a file or include a snippet of code for others to reference in your response. In most cases, you can .zip up files and attach them to a question or answer using Pligg's file manager. At times though this may fail, and in these circumstances we recommend using a third party host. Below we are including a list of recommended websites where you can share easily share file uploads (or snippets of code) through the web.
