Pligg Support

Hi there,

I'm trying to display the $user_karma variable in the header of non-profile pages but it doesn't appear to be populated.

I have tried the solution in this forum thread to no avail: http://bit.ly/WZcJpR and I don't want to revert to hacking the core for obvious reasons.

By the way, I'm running Pligg 1.2.2 and a customised version of the standard Bootstrap theme.

Many thanks in advance for any help.

Matt W.

Possible Answers

    This problem arose due to my unfamiliarity with the Smarty templating system. If you also need to achieve this, you need to declare the $user_karma variable within your template. I added the following code to the header.tpl so it would apply across every page:

    $main_smarty->assign('user_karma', $user->karma);

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.
