Pligg Support

I receive "ERROR: You have already voted on this article" when voting on a comment in a thread I have not previously voted on. This has happened here in the support forum.

    This might be a bug but I guess it has to do something with your internet IP Address. Pligg's comment system can track fake voting from the same computer.

    Same computer ≠ IP address. I regularly use a public wifi through a VPN which assigns a new IP address for each session. Even if vote tracking is done by cookie, I get errors when trying to vote on comments/articles that I know I have not previously voted on, so it is obviously a bug.

    Agree. It has to be a bug. Sometimes 'upvoted-green' and 'downvoted-red' show at the same time. If I find a way to fix it then I will get back to this forum.

    [slaps forehead] So, I made some progress on this: in Admin > Settings > Voting, I disabled the "Votes allowed from one IP" and I could vote on comments without receiving this error. I wonder if others who have this problem have tried the same thing?

    Hello, did you manage to find a work around to this? Without adjusting the settings. It would be good to stop people from upvoting their own content.

    I get this same error on all pligg sites (ERROR- You have already voted for this article): here, the demo, and my own. It happens in Firefox and Safari. Not sure, but is this some kind of settings issue?
