Question: Change up and down icons
Answer: provided by jhawkin 25 days ago
- 0 + Well I fired up the site Inspector in Firefox and found this http://pligg.com/support/templates/support/img/glyphicons-halflings.png and I have no clue how that all works but it's part of Bootstrap.

Yankidank knows a bunch about Bootstrap. Maybe he will see this and help out.

My other suggestion is to Google 'Glyphicons Bootstrap'. Lots of info there. I worked lastnight and am sleepy as all get out and I have a Website to fix today before I can look at anything.

My take on this? Leave it be! Unless you really need to change it.

Question: Site returns gibberish and code after host cleans up malware.
Answer: provided by jhawkin 27 days ago
- 0 + I've recently had to do this for a client who purchased a site and one of my own sites during a move.

Two more files you might need to keep is your root htaccess and your meta.tpl file if you did anything custom there.

- 0 + I noticed the site is still broken.

Did replacing the files not help? Or have you not got to it yet?

Question: How to unblock my own IP, mistakenly blocked
Answer: provided by jhawkin 28 days ago
- 0 + One other 'trick' I recommend is to setup a second admin level account just in case the first admin account gets deleted or disabled by accident.

For instance sometimes the 'Zombie Killer' module will delete the admin though it's not supposed to or you delete from phpmyadmin using the oldest modification date if the admin account never posts anything. Or you killspam the admin accidentally. I've done all this and more. Hee Hee

Another thing I really stress is not naming the admin account 'admin'. That's just too obvious!

Question: "The page isn't redirecting properly" error
Answer: provided by jhawkin 39 days ago
- 0 + Usually, when something like this happens and you haven't made changes it's either some new content or a problem at your host.

I checked your site...... Way too many ads for me!

Anyway, site was loading fine then suddenly I received a 404 from the site. Not the ad server. It was your site. Then nothing.

I checked your DNS. And tried to load from the domain (without the www) nothing either way. There doesn't seem to be a DNS entry for the root domain pointing at a webserver

So I'd call the host. Looks like CloudFlare via w3hub.

Hope this helps.

Question: How to rename the '/admin' url, mainly for security purposes?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 41 days ago
- 0 + You can rename the files if you like. That's easy enough. You'll most likely run into problems somewhere but I understand your feelings here....

Pligg does have pretty good brute force protection.

You might also delete all the admin files from your production site if you like and run an instance of Pligg elsewhere just for admin duties. You'll need your database set up to accept connections from both servers.

But, what if IWP or some other remote admin service decides to offer some kind of integration down the road? Suddenly your site may not work with that.

You pays your money - You takes your chances.

Question: How to rename the '/admin' url, mainly for security purposes?
Answer: provided by jhawkin 41 days ago
- 0 + There's three ways to find out if your database will accept outside connections.

One is when you setup the database were you offered that choice? And did you accept it?

Two is to ask your ISP and three is to just try it. Your ISP probably prefers their database only connects to their service.

Do a complete backup. Copy all the sites files to a different server or even use a sub-domain pointed at a different directory. Don't run install! Just try it!

When you copy the files the file that calls the database gets copied with them. It either works or it doesn't. It will probably work fine from a sub - directory but the files will need some tweaks.

Don't touch configuration to tweak the second site until you have a strong grip on this and understand multi-Pligg and the effects of tweaking settings. This ain't easy.

Once you have it working go back to the main or first install and start removing/renamin admin files etc.

Backups are super important here when doing multi-Pligg which is what you're doing.

This is all the assistance I'll be able to offer you on this. The rest is up to you.

There is some muli-Pligg info if you'll Google that.
