This have been happened to me again! But in this time I've got the cause why it's happening and I report it as a bug. Here take a look the issue: https://github.com/Pligg/pligg-cms/issues/146
I have found a sollution for this issue! Reinstall your Pligg website and don't try to configure all the settings again! Because there's a configuration which I didn't know yet, that if you change its value, submitting a new story on your Pligg site wouldn't work again! But all the statuses of a new stories will be a "New" stories and not a "Published" stories, but of course you can change it.
If you look in the admin, is the post awaiting moderation? I'm having this issue right now, many posts going into awaiting moderation and I've never heard of this before.
I'm sorry but on my issue, there's no any post awaiting for moderation in the page "/admin/admin_links.php". I'm now planning if I'm going to reinstall the Pligg CMS.
I'd guess you enabled URL Method 2 and didn't update your .htaccess file.
It will look like htaccess.default
It should look like .htaccess
Nope, 'cause I'm familiar with that. Maybe some of the files are needed to CHMOD 777 and not 755 before installation. But maybe not.

Just for fun, and while I forgot where I grabbed the initial code..
“I suggest you use Winmerge to compare the source code between your old copy and the new version to...”
“Sorry to take a while to get back to you. I assume that you are still having this problem? I am...”
“Well there certainly isn't a simple way to do it, so I'm going to say no....”
