Possible Answers

    Hi sayog,

    I'm in the process of doing the same thing and have done the following so far:

    + Open up languageslang_english.conf - this contains all the tags that appear under boxes, page headers etc etc. Many of these are built round a site that collates links to stories from otehr sites. You will need to replace the word 'story' with 'submission' or something similar. What I've done is comment out the default line with // and then make a copy of my version of the line, then you can always go back :)

    + Under admin/settings/stories I've set 'Require a URL when Submitting' to false, 'Show the URL Input Box' to false, 'Validate URL' to false

    + Go into Admin/Manage/Catergories amd add in the catergories and sub-catergories that you want people to do their Q&A on.

    + I suggest to add a site rules catergory and set it to Admin only access, also for the News catergory

    You will also need to empty the cache directory for the lang_english.conf changes to take effect. I read somewhere there is a setting in admin to do this but haven't found it yet.

    The page contents are stored in the template files, use the template editor to edit the content. Work through the files making small changes and see what happens. If you have any experience of programming you shoudl be able to follow the lgicc and work out what is going on. index_centre.tpl is a good place to start. If you want to comment out a smarty tag with normal HTML comment tags then you will need to remove the curly brackets { } to see the effect - just leave yourself a comment to the effect so you can go back.

    That's as far as I have got - hope this helps - good luck

    Paul

    1. Go to Admin/Catergories/Add Catergory - Set 'Required Level To Post' to Admin

    2. This will be via the style sheet for the site. Goto Admin/Templates/Template editor and open the css files, find the css tag associated with the element you are trying to change - use Firefox DOM Inspector or IE equivalent to identify the element and the relevant css tag for the part of the page you are interested in - and amend it.

    Hi sayog, For my Q&A site I wanted a front page briefly describing the site purpose and overview to always be the diaplyed page when people landed on the site - if you want to do this see my posting on front page content and the answer I worked out.

    Got a little problem in the site which i am testing. At first it was working well but certainly something went wrong. When I open the setting in profile tab it over laps ans something like this shows up.

    (A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.)

    Unresponsive script:

    Not sure what template they used to start but I'm figuring this is a very custom theme as most themes should be after several months of use. The mechanism to do Q and A is here already built into Pligg via the story submission comment system.

    There is a FAQ module also available but that leans more to a static previously asked questions and answers format.

Pligg.com's Support area is where you can ask questions and get answers. Just getting started with the Support area? This section describes tips for participating.

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 pligg.com 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.
