Pligg Support

First off, let me apologize for the long post.

I have been testing Pligg via WAMP, and I must say that I am impressed with what I see, however, there are a few issues that I am hoping to have addressed. These issues seem to be ongoing from previous builds and have been asked before in the Pligg forum, but went unanswered for years before the forums were closed and never resolved for those users. It's a bit disconcerting that support request have, in the past, gone completely ignored even when multiple users express that they experience the same issue. I understand that Pligg is an open-source CMS and I am grateful to the developers for providing this product to us, but when we are talking about paying for premium modules, templates, and services, the lack of support of the CMS core may turn many potential customers off. But I digress.

The issues I am hoping someone helps me address are:

1. I cannot seem to enable html in comments. Regardless of what settings I change or what tags I allow, the comments text field always displays "HTML is Disabled".

2. I cannot find a way to insert or embed an image or video into a comment. This is of utmost importance to me to enable rich and detailed discussion.

3. The Upload Module does not seem to work when attaching an image to a comment. The function seemed to work in the previous support forum, but I cannot for the life of me get it to work with Pligg 2.0.

4. Is it possible to enable markdown?

As with most people who would employ a CMS like this, I am not well versed with PHP, really only HTML, CSS, and some JS, so I am really hoping someone will provide a little guidance here. If I can get some of these core issues resolved, I will continue to use Pligg, delve into PHP, and as a designer, provide some handsome and functional responsive templates for the community to use.

Thanks for everyone's time and sorry for the wall of text!

    The only thing you can do in comments is to enable the links module and that will only transform a url as clickable. The reason you don't want html allowed is that you would essentially be leaving the window open for an attacker take over your site very easily. It's a huge security risk.

    You should be able to upload a file and attach it to a comment if you have the correct upload module settings and the proper read and write permissions on the server, but it won't embed it like a video or anything. Again this is done that way for security reasons.

    I think is responsability of everyone and must to assume the risk but why not have a easy way to add all the html tags in comments if i want?
