I have recently been attempting to upgrade http://www.circnotes.com/ from Pligg 1.2.2 to Pligg 2.0.0 RC2. After a few attempts (and blending in the suggestions here to the main readme.html steps) I've gotten it running, but I'm still having some issues.
The first issue is the most critical. Any time I try to submit an article, everything except for the base domain seems to get stripped from the link on the submission details page. This leads to almost everything being considered a duplicate and not being submit-able (and not very useful if it were submitted). Still searching google, but so far I have not seen this issue mentioned or a fix suggested.
The second issue seems more common, but as of yet I'm still unable to resolve it. I can't seem to get the friendly URLs working. I have renamed "htaccess.default" to ".htaccess" as suggested here and here and tried switching it back and forth between SEO method 1 and 2, which I saw suggested somewhere. Worried that I might have an incorrect version of htaccess.default, I grabbed a new one from github to no avail. Almost all the suggestions I've found so far point to this file, but I can't find anything wrong with it.
Thanks for any help,

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.
