Pligg Support

Hi,

I'm getting the following error when users submit a story:

invalid username or userid in get_avatar

This error also occurs in the "upcoming" page > http://www.dosplash.com/upcoming/

We had to delete one user account from the site. So we deleted the user id from mysql database (we didn't find an option to delete users from the site admin page itself!). That user had already submitted a post. After deleting that user, if we clicked on the story link submitted by that user, we got the above mentioned error. From then on we get this error in the upcoming page, as well as after any user makes a submission.

We have launched our site finally today (http://www.probloggingsuccess.com/dosplash/), but now users are unable to make submissions. So we appreciate your speedy help in this matter. Thanks in advance.

Thanks!

Possible Answers

    Nowhere is it recommended or suggested to edit your mysql manually.. You've corrupted your database.Add the information you deleted back in and disable the user the proper way.

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.
