Pligg Support

Whenever I try to follow a member by clicking on the follow button I get an error message and I'm unable to follow any member. The message say:

I search for members to follow then click on follow and the button doesn't work or send notification to the member that I'm following the person.

Possible Answers

    I can verify that this bug exists. The follow and unfollow buttons from the user search function returns a 404 page. I will try to look into it further if Redwine hasn't posted a fix yet.

    I have a partial fix that I've pushed to Github. This will make it so that the user search and profile page follow/unfollow button links will work. There is still a problem with the unfollow links that are appearing on the user profile friend list.

    I have changed a lot in the logic of the process and the coding to make it work. The way it is now is a maze.

    If you are able to pick out just that changed files, it should be simple for me to compare your files to the latest and to merge them in. Just bundle up the files as a .zip and attach (or send as a link).

    I just posted a couple fixes related to the Follow / Unfollow button URLs. You can see my latest commit notes here:

    Yes this what I will do for you, send the changed files as a zip.

    Do I repost the changes for the users' immediate work around as well?

    The follow/unfollow is the least of the worries, but I fixed them. The big problem was the whole process that needed to be changed in order to properly apply the messaging rights. As it is now, the queries to get the status of the friend is problematic as it always give you the id of the first found to all the others...

    You will see the amount of changes made.

    I will finish it today. I posted it yesterday then removed it because of a bug that still lurking around. I am almost done and changed the whole logic of it and believe me it is coming great!

    The latest Github version fixes the main issue mentioned on this thread concerning the Follow and Unfollow buttons not working. These changes will be present in a 2.0.2 release in the near future.

    Here are the 2 fixes related to this issue: /> />
    I'm waiting Redwine's changes to see what he's come up with.

    Yes, I am working on fixing the whole code of adding friends and simple messaging. I was supposed to finish and post the solution tonight or tomorrow morning but it seems it will take the entire tomorrow as I am finding a lot of bugs.
