Question: Adding a badge or icon for mods or special accounts
Answer: provided by jhawkin 203 days ago
- 1 + Well there's two user levels for posters.... Admin and Normal. Shouldn't be too hard to add an icon to represent them. And that code could be in the templates. Extending the user types might be a little more challenging but not much.

Also, you might use the Karma system to add an icon within the templates according to karma level.

Reminds me of running a web board that was originally coded by Albert Fong. That cgi (in perl) had five user levels with military looking badges when released by the CyberArmy.

The Admin level user(s) would get a generals badge, stars or something and the users would get stripes added according to karma level.

Just my thoughts.

Question: Submit single link in Single login

- 1 + That's sorta like, "Come on in and have a drink.... but if you want a refill you'll need to leave and re-enter!".

Question: Facebook Embedding ( Auto content + OTnewz theme )
Answer: provided by jhawkin 211 days ago
- 0 + Are you trying to share a post on your Pligg to Facebook or are you trying to share a Facebook Post to Pligg?

The site you're sharing to is the one that 'decides' what it is imported!

Question: Facebook Embedding ( Auto content + OTnewz theme )
Answer: provided by jhawkin 209 days ago
- 0 + Facebook makes the decisions then.

I just accept what Facebook does since Facebook is just to direct traffic to my Pligg. Actually, Facebook pretty much runs the Monster Highway website since they treat Monster Highway as part of their system www.MonsterHighway.com

Question: Hide Story Content from Home page
Answer: provided by jhawkin 211 days ago
- 0 + Sounds like you want an index page so load your main page into a html editor and remove what you don't want. Save it as index.html and upload it. That's how I did it when I needed a page like that.

Question: Hide Story Content from Home page
Answer: provided by jhawkin 210 days ago
- 0 + No. But if you want an index other than Pligg's index.php file that's where I'd go.

I'm sure you could modify the tpl file to do this as there are 'hooks' all over Pligg to allow you to do most anything. If you want to go that route I'd create a second template file.... modify the first for use with the main page and use the second for the underlying pages.

There's no way I have the time to figure this out for you but I hope this will steer you toward the answer you need.

BTW: I did the index.html file during development of WildWellEnt.com to handle the weird redirect I needed (due to the technical need for WordPress to be in root for that site) with Pligg actually being the front end of the site.

One of these days I'm going to document some of the stuff I've done..... maybe a book!

Question: Looking for a Pligg Developer
Answer: provided by jhawkin 212 days ago
- 0 + Please provide a URL to your site so we can see if it's working properly already. It's hard to quote something then find the site is broken.

Why do you want to do this in Pligg when Salesforce seems to be the platform you want to emulate!

A few more details on what you need and/or expect would help.

Question: Looking for a Pligg Developer

- 0 + randy93552 said, "I have a clean installation being spammed all to hell at dragondropsoftware.com (Any advice as to how to kill the spam registrations and postings would be appreciated)

Rename you register.php file until you wish to go live. Run Akismet, Abyss, or whatever module and story moderation. These all help.

On my Pligg 1.2.2 install I run a renamed and hidden register.php with a modification to allow it to still work but Pligg doesn't see it. The original register.php just informs people to contact me because I no longer allow open registrations. This is a little involved and may not suit your purposes.

Killspam is your friend!

Question: troubleshooter.php
Answer: provided by jhawkin 209 days ago
- 0 + Well......

"If any errors appear on that page you may have a problem with either installing or running Pligg."

You are welcome to ignore running that if you wish! But I'm thinking other people (like me) appreciate that nice, helpful tool.

Wondering -- Why would anyone take exception to this??
