Content is King!

Question: Is there any way to change the home page screen
Answer: provided by jhawkin 40 days ago
- 0 + You might set the 'votes needed to publish' to 1(one) which will make any submission go to 'published' if you have the submissions set to automatically have the submitter counted as the first vote.

The anonymous module allows anyone to do whatever you decide to allow which might not be the best answer.

Question: Forum recommendation
Answer: provided by jhawkin 40 days ago
- 0 + What you are seeing here is Pligg's core function. This isn't anything special added except possibly a few tweaks to enhance the look and feel.

If you want Pligg to act one way publicly and be a 'forum' also with a different look and feel or configuration then I'd suggest running two instances of Pligg.

You can also run WordPress and Pligg and run a forum from there. Or attach any forum you want to Pligg. The problems you might run into are bridging logins between the dissimilar cms or forum apps. There is a WordPress/Pligg bridge available but I've never had time to get it running yet,

An example of Pligg running several Pligg instances (the four Pligg instances all share one user table) and a WordPress Blog can be found here http://www.freakyvirginia.com/

Question: Contact Form
Answer: provided by jhawkin 48 days ago
- 1 + What's so strange about that? I hate contact forms.

But you can go to manage - pages and create a new page and paste whatever form you need in there. You'll need something to parse the form's output and then email that to you.

Since I'm running a business, I just put an email address, office phone number, etc. in the footer.

Question: *URGENT* Need feedback to proceed fixing the issues
Answer: provided by jhawkin 53 days ago
- 1 + I'll take a stab at this one!

If someone is following you then they have indicated a wish to 'see and/or hear' from you so you should be able to message them!

But.... just because someone is following you doesn't mean they should be able to message you!

And... the above should be configurable!

1. Ignore messages from followers.

2. Alert if a follower messages you. (allow or Deny on a individual basis).

3. Allow any follower to message you.

4. Allow all messages!!

5. Actually follow this follower!

I'd go that route (the first two) with or without the configuration option.

And thank you for all the work you've done and for helping me with several issues. You Really Rock!!!!!!!!!!

Question: *URGENT* Need feedback to proceed fixing the issues
Answer: provided by jhawkin 52 days ago
- 1 + The first part for sure but the second probably needs implementing (I don't know if that's the way it works in Pligg).

The first is probably how Pligg works now.

The second is how I think it should work as best practice but can it be done?

The second way would insure (well almost) that you never miss a wanted or welcome message.
