Question: Cannot log into Pligg site.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 23 hours ago
- 0 + Seems to work fine for me as a normal user so........

There's something wrong on the admin side. See anything different in the URL bar between the regular user account and your admin account?

Hint open 2nd browser window and switch between?

I'm thinking either the 'www' or the path right now.

And .... if you know how to edit a user via phpmyadmin you might try making a new user then promote that user to admin and see if you can get in then. I'm thinking it will do the same thing.

- 0 + Glad you got it!

You might want to kill off that old admin (the one that doesn't work) by demoting it to a normal user. And see if you can even use it then.

I'm wondering why that didn't work and if it might work or not as a user might tell us something useful!

Question: Social bookmarking plug-in is not sharing link to Pligg website!
Answer: provided by jhawkin 1 day 13 hours ago
- 0 + Admin ---> Config ---> Story

Set 'use story title as link to external article' (or however it's worded) to False. This will force a click on the title to the article on your site.

But what I've done is set both 'use story title as link to external article' and 'Open Story Link In New Window' to True. This keeps more users on your site when they close the browser containing the followed link.

We are 'bookmarking' which infers we show a little about the article and point to (bookmark to) the original source.

BTW: If we copied the whole article to our site we'd be plagiarizing the original article instead of bookmarking. A very important distinction.

Of course if the article exists originally within your website (your blog, FAQs, pages, etc.) then the 'bookmark' references that location on your site anyway.

Question: pligg 2.0.0 and pligg 2.0.2 do not work
Answer: provided by jhawkin 14 hours ago
- 0 + For some reason I think I've had to clear mine on a couple sites when they didn't clear themselves. Back in the earlier days and caused by the 'Newbie to Pligg' errors I caused myself most likely.

I also had the one server here (the one running ZPanel) crash after it ran out of room when it forgot to clear itself. I cleared those logs first just to get enough turn around room to get the machine backup then get into the ZPanel to fix the error logs.

Not that Pligg in anyway caused the server problem. I just knew that was a darn good place to find some space and it was enough! Thought maybe this might help someone else down the road.

My Pliggs pretty much run themselves with no hitch now.

Question: I want to use Pligg as a collaborative blogging platform
Answer: provided by jhawkin 3 days ago
- 0 + I've built a hybrid of Pligg and WordPress on several websites and there is a login module (I haven't had time to get it working but it works here at Pligg.com).

The only users who need to see the WP dash board are admins the rest are just users unless they are given admin privileges.

I use Pligg as the front end, Use Pligg's excellent RSS/Atom capabilities to pull in articles from my own and other blogs and can allow user submissions also.

Here's a link to a working Hybrid I built http://www.WildWellEnt.com

- 1 + Oh, yeah, WordPress has the options to multisite itself and can pretty much give you what you need for multiple bloggers and multiple Blogs.

The Pligg ties it all together so very well.

Question: All module settings pages are blank following Pligg upgrade
Answer: provided by jhawkin 8 days ago
- 0 + Exactly which module did you uninstall? Then Reinstall? The one incompatibility I know of with modules is the difference between the admin user level in the two different versions.

Of course 2.0.2 is very different from 1.2.2 but it's surprising how many items in the two stayed the same or still work the same though the code might have been rewritten.

Answer: provided by jhawkin 8 days ago
- 0 + Maybe the modules were trying to use the old admin templates or something like that then. Glad you got it working.

Question: Related links for Direct link
Answer: provided by jhawkin 3 days ago
- 1 + Sorry, I missed this one earlier but.

Related links point to related stories on your site.

What I think you want is the link under the title to go to the direct link instead.

Goto admin ---> config ---> story and set 'Use Story Title As External Link' to true.

Question: Dynamic Sidebar
Answer: provided by jhawkin 8 days ago
- 0 + What I did on one site was split the site into three instances of Pligg into sub-directories using the idea from Yankidank about Multi-Pligg. Just do a search. What he described was for 1.2.2 but 2.0.x will work the same way.

This gave me three sub-directories as a top level 'category' like system where I can setup anything in the templates specific to that pseudo top level category.
