Pligg Support

Pligg has 3 default story statuses: Published, Upcoming, and Discarded. I realize what the first two terms mean, but what is a "Discarded" submission?

Possible Answers

    The "Discarded" term for Pligg CMS represents stories that are awaiting deletion from the database. Similar to how in the Windows and Mac operating systems you can move files to a recycle bin, and then fully remove those files from your hard drive by emptying the bin.

    Discarded stories are removed from public view so that only administrators and moderators can see the submission when accessing the page URL.

    Should an admin want to remove the story permanently from the database, they can do that by running the "Delete Discarded Stories from Database" link available on the Admin > Manage > Submissions page or from the Admin Dashboard.

    discard is default status for stroy when new submit. if i make any new/published story to discard it will discard. then there is no way to differ which one is new and which one i make discard!

    I think there should be another status like submitted for newly submitted story...

    Newly submitted stories go into 'upcoming' status unless you have the story moderation module installed.

    If you have the story moderation module then you have a place to keep a story ('moderated' status) until a moderator can decide to either publish (to upcoming), mark as spam or actually delete the story.

    Discard status is the final step from removing a story before deletion. This status gives you a 'trash can' type function where you (as admin) might still change your mind and keep the story.

    Isn't 'moderated' a fourth status?

    And I'm working on a 'hidden' status to keep some unwanted RSS submissions from being resubmitted. Deleting doesn't work as the RSS resubmits the deleted posts.

    As it turns out, 'Moderated' is not a default status for stories, but it is for comments.

    Comments use: 'discard','moderated','published', and 'spam' statuses

    Stories use: 'discard', 'new', 'published', 'abuse', 'duplicate', 'page', and 'spam'.

    What is really odd about this is that I don't see any trace of the 'duplicate' status outside of the install script for Pligg. Pligg isn't using it right now, so I'm not sure why it even exists. Similarly, the 'abuse' status is not being used anywhere. I think that I will rename 'abuse' and remove 'duplicate' for the next version.
