Question: Etiquette when asking for support (Expresses my own opinion)
Answer: provided by ChuckRoast 16 hours ago
- 1 + I completely agree with this post and have felt this way for a lonnnnngggg time! The one thing that really gets my blood boiling is the people that demand customization. I am astounded by the number of people who seem to feel it's completely fine to pay for someone to give them a haircut but when it comes to paying someone to customize their website they feel as though it should be done for free.

I've had people threaten me, attempt to blackmail me, call me all sorts of derogatory words for over 8 years now. All because they either think everything should be done for them for free, or they've made a 3 dollar purchase of a module and think that the word support means that I will modify and customize it for them immediately for free.

I honestly think it's a sickness with some people. They are not able to grasp the fact that people need to earn a living or eat. These are usually the same people that do not understand what the definition of open source means. When you explain to them that the term does not mean free, they get angry and call you names.

These people will email you in the middle of the night, on weekends, every holiday, and even during my own fathers funeral. They think we are robots and are not human.

I've been complaining out this for years and I don't think it's about to change anytime soon. This is also why I don't respond to many support requests. Because most of them are requests for free work or because they broke something when attempting to make modifications, or they are are just to lazy to search or read.

Question: pligg 2.0.0 and pligg 2.0.2 do not work
Answer: provided by ChuckRoast 1 day 10 hours ago
- 1 + It would really help if we had a link to your site, but if I had to take a guess it's possible that your server had a .htaccess file placed by default on the server by the host and that's adding the dot before the slash. Go into your FTP client and see if there is a ,htaccess file and if so, remove it. The htaccess.default that comes with Pligg should only be renamed and used if you're using url method 2. Hope that helps.

Question: How could my Karma drop overnight??
Answer: provided by ChuckRoast 17 days ago
- 2 + Everyone's dropped. It's sort of a long story so I'll be brief. Someone got caught trying to plagiarize other peoples code so he and his products had to be removed. He's now all butt-hurt over it and thinks by down-voting everyone's posts and comments it's going to make him feel better. This is the mind of a psychotic person. .

Question: Story counter question
Answer: provided by ChuckRoast 53 days ago
- 2 + I'm not sure I understand the question. The story counter should only be showing on story pages. Are you saying you've modified it to run on index pages?

If I had to guess, it sounds like you forgot to do the 'permissions' as described in the readme file.

Question: Story counter question
Answer: provided by ChuckRoast 53 days ago
- 1 + The module is not designed to run that way. It's not supposed to run on summary pages. It's designed to run on story pages and listed in the catalog as so. If you need to have your modules customized I can only suggest hiring someone.
