Question: Akismet Spam removal Locked me(admin) out ?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 222 days ago
- 0 + Whoops, I forgot about the articles getting tossed into the 'spam' state. Yeah, I had to go through that, too. I think I pulled up just the spam 'list' and it was a quick enough fix from there.

Most of my articles come in via RSS now and each feed has it's own user so that's not as big a problem but I was using my own accounts at first for RSS feeds, too.

Question: Can't get pligg to work in Subdomain
Answer: provided by jhawkin 265 days ago
- 0 + SEO friendly URLs do help somewhat but I never get too excited about SEO methods. If your URLs don't work then SEO didn't help you much.

For the most part 'Settings.php' is for getting Pligg to work within your chosen directory structure while htaccess is for tweaking the URLS.

So if your Install is basically working but the Stories, Etc. aren't showing up at their given URL then I'd concentrate on the htaccess file. That is where the web server builds or Rewrites the URLs for the SEO methods.

Question: HTML tags?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 267 days ago
- 0 + That feature is mostly used for adding text formatting tags. I wouldn't set it until I had a specific need. It's not set on any of my Pligg installs.

You don't want to allow just anything! A clever coder could add URLs to sites you've barred and Scripts that you don't want run from your pages since there's little to no inherent testing there.

Question: Auto Content Scraper Submit Question
Answer: provided by jhawkin 270 days ago
- 0 + That's a big request! You could maybe block any sites that don't have videos normally or only allow sites that should have videos but I think this calls for manual checking/moderation. You, as moderator, would down vote any link you don't like or discard that URL.

I'm sure you could write a bunch of code to do this for you but it would take a bunch of time and probably nor give you the results you expect at that!!

Question: How do I manually install Pligg on my server?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 273 days ago
- 1 + If you'll unzip the file you should find a Readme.html in the zip. Read that with your web browser then print the page.

You'll need to upload the contents of the zip to your server's root directory or a sub folder (your choice).

Then work your way through the printout you made earlier.

But you might want to check and see if your host has a one button install of Pligg Available. That usually is fast and painless if available.

Question: How do I manually install Pligg on my server?

- 0 + If you FTP upload them (or use a file manager if your Hosting Control Panel offers one) you should be able to 'rename' the file from file.name.default to file.name. They just want you to remove the word default and the leading '.' from the file name.

Further along in the install the 'troubleshooter app' will fuss at you if you mess up the file name and the chmod settings for the files and directories. If you'll follow along in the instructions you'll avoid a lot of 'going back to fix problems' with the troubleshooter.

That's why I recommend you print out the readme file from your browser. You can write on it and cross off or checkmark stuff.
