Pligg Support

To Yankidank and ChuckRost,

I have already submitted 2 fixes and recommendations to help Pliggers with some issues that arise when switching languages, specifically to Arabic. In those fixes I also submitted an accurate translation of lang_arabic for the Simple Messaging module, which can be used and also added to the new Pligg version. I might as well add that I still have a lot to contribute.

Is there a repository where I can also submit these additions, fixes, etc. for you to use what you deem useful for any updates to Pligg CMS?

Thank you!

Possible Answers

    Pligg uses Github as a repository. You can create account and submit a pull request with your changes.

    What ^Chuckroast said. Github pull requests are the most efficient way for us to import code changes into the project. If you aren't proficient with Git, then feel free to link to for code examples or provide .zip folders containing any changed files which we can review.

    I installed Git locally on my laptop and did the following:

    1-Forked Pligg-cms

    2- Cloned it to my laptop

    The question is how to go from here. If i change a file in the working directory, stage the change and commit then push.

    1-Will the push transfer the commit to pligg-cms or to my forked?

    2- Will the push sends all the files, changed and unchanged or only the one that was staged and committed?

    3- How do I know that you got the pushed commit?

    Please assist me on this so I can be more useful in sending you the changes that deemed beneficial and working.

    Thanks a million!

    If you're not familiar with Git or SVN, then I suggest starting out with a GUI (graphical user interface) program to learn the basics of Git. Below are 2 different free software applications that you can use with Git, which should make it easier to pick up the lingo and processes. Both applications have text or video tutorials available online with a quick Google.

    If you're familiar with the command line (as a Linux user or server admin), then you may be okay with learning Git from scratch. You can do this by following tutorials like the ones I've listed below.

Who Upvoted this Story'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 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.
